Jul 19, 2008
A growing number of books on the subjects about calorie counting and particularly weight loss or diet recipes have exploded in the market in the past decades. Never before has there been such a widespread of popular interest on diet plans, 1200 calorie diet plan being advised as the lowest a person should go. Well, this frenzy is primarily due to the growing number of our population who have also been growing a large in the past years.

It is not easy to create a caloric deficit using this diet plan because people can't stand the sudden decrease of carbohydrate intake. Some withdraw from the diet after just a week and sometimes as early as 4 days. It is not easy. So if you are thinking of going on a 1200 calorie diet plan, here is a sample menu so you could test it first if you will be able to stand it for a long period of time.

One Day 1200 Calorie Meal Plan

Breakfast Small glass grapefruit juice 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 glass skim milk 1 whole wheat toast 1 teaspoon jam coffee or tea

Lunch 2 hot dogs cup mashed potatoes Sauerkraut Fresh fruit salad 1 angel food cake Coffee

Dinner 3oz baked veal chop Small baked potato Peas Fresh fruit salad Raspberry ice

I know you are probably eager to start on using 1200 calories diet to lose weight. Remember, before you undergo this type of diet, you must never neglect proper nutrition needed by your body, otherwise, you will defeat your purpose of losing weight which is to become more healthy.

Although this may seem an easy diet to follow, a lot of people do get some problems in sticking to the 1200 calorie limit. The cravings are felt as early as the 4th day from the start. That is mostly when the food binges and "accidents" happen. I suggest that when you want to start a diet, start out with something that you can stick to for the long term to get maximum and successful results.
