Low Calorie Diet

Great Ideas Collection
The basic diet equation: if you take in fewer calories than your body uses, you will lose weight. Since for every shortage of 500 calories per day, you will lose one pound, low calorie diets are designed to reduce the number of calories you consume in order to create a daily shortfall.

Normally, a 125 pound woman uses 1500 calories a day and a 200 pound man uses 2800 calories a day, so you can see that a 500 calorie per day reduction is a pretty significant reduction, particularly for a woman. This is why exercise plays an important role in weight loss. By exercising, we increase our daily calorie burn rate. For example, an active person will burn an extra 450-600 calories a day, which means that an inactive person can lose a pound a week simply by becoming active.

The other key to dieting is to remember that the body needs daily nutrition, and considerable damage can occur if your body is deprived of its essential nutrients. Consequently, it is important to be selective in which part of your food intake you restrict and not simply go on a "starvation" diet.

Before beginning a low calorie diet, it is always recommended that you speak with your doctor to make sure that your specific nutritional needs are met.
