This plan represents a portion control approach to dieting where you are getting 1500 calories per day selected out of clean food options and distributed over the meals of the day. This may translate to 1 pound of weight loss per week for an average woman and 2 pounds for an average man.
This is not a extreme low-calorie diet (800 cal.) that is based on commercially-made meal replacement formulas, nor is it the grapefruit, cabbage soup, or other such diets where you rely on eating a lot of the same low calorie food or foods.
If you do not want to restrict your options but are willing to limit the volume of food you are eating, this plan may be just the right SHORT TERM diet for you.
So, with this relatively fast weight loss, you may be able to improve weight-related medical conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. But in the long run, low calorie diets are not more effective than more modest lifestyle plans that are usually better designed for wellness and longevity.
If you start experiencing fatigue, constipation, nausea, or diarrhea, you should get off this diet and put yourself on one of our lifestyle plans, committing to healthy eating and regular physical activity.
If you do not experience any weight loss on that many calories, you can always check with your coach and you will be switched to a more appropriate short term diet or longer term lifestyle plan, committing to healthy eating and regular physical activity.
