What You Need To Know About A Low Calorie Diet?

(Last Updated On: August 21, 2017)

These days, almost each and every conversation on diet begins and ends with a low calorie diet. A low calorie meal usually revolves around 1000-1500 calories. For some, a low calorie diet or its variants become an alternative for quick weight loss. Some of these diets have been commercially formulated around 1000 calories or sometimes, even less, while replacing almost all the foods one eats. These low calorie diets aren’t the same as over-the counter meal substitutes which may come to your avail for one (sometimes two) square meals a day.

Starting with the basics: What is the ideal number of calories you should consume?

Multiply the ideal weight by 12 (in case you aren’t the most active) or by 15 (if you get your daily share of physical activity and exercises). Generally, cutting down on 500 calories than the ideal calorie intake is enough to help weight loss goals. Eating even less than the stipulated mark could well be the reason behind side effects.
