Low Calorie Meal Plan FAQs

What is a calorie and how will eating less calories help me lose weight?

A calorie is a unit of energy. The four sources of calories in food and drinks come from carbohydrates, protein, fats and alcohol. Cutting back 3600 calories a week (about 500 calories a day) will result in a loss of one to two pounds a week.

What food should I avoid on a low calorie diet?

You can eat anything in moderation, but minimize starches, added sugars and animal fats from meat and dairy foods. Sugared beverages and alcohol are sources of empty calories and provide little nutritional value.

How do I calculate my daily calorie intake?

Keep a detailed record of what you eat during the day, especially portion sizes or weights, if possible. Refer to online tools, charts and package labels that provide nutrient information.

Is counting calories the best way to lose weight?

It’s a good starting point. When you know how many calories you eat in a day or a week, you can figure out how many you need to lose weight. If you’re unsure, weight-loss experts suggest starting by eating 11.4 calories per pound of your ideal body weight.

Calorie reduction paired with a moderate exercise program will speed up weight loss. Aim for an hour a day of moderate exercise. Cardio activities burn the most calories, but it is also important to include strength training workouts to maintain muscle. Pace yourself. Don’t do too much too soon. Work your way up to help prevent injury.

What is the least amount of calories I should eat for weight loss?

While drastically calories may lead to rapid weight loss, it could also cause health problems such as fatigue, nausea and nutrient deficiencies. Cutting calories below 1000 to 1200 a day is counterproductive because your metabolism slows down to conserve energy for normal body functions. You will lose fat, but can also lose muscle. You need strong muscles in order to exercise effectively, increase the intensity of your workouts and improve endurance.
