1300 Calorie Diet Plan for 7 Days
We provide you with a free sample of the 1300 calorie diet for 7 days to help you to lose weight fast and eat healthy. This plan consists of 5-6 small low calorie meals throughout the day and is based on the principle that eating little and often will maintain both your glucose levels in the blood stream (blood sugars) and energy at steady levels. Regulation of blood sugars is very important, as a large rise in sugar triggers the fat storing hormone, insulin.
How to follow the diet plan:
- If you are planning to lose weight, find out if reducing your
calorie intake to 1300 calories a day is suitable for your daily
activity levels. Check how to calculate your recommended calorie intake for weight loss.
- You will also need to know the calories content of foods and how to count calories. Using a digital nutrition calculator
will simplify not only calories counting, but will also help you to
track your nutritional intake. Unfortunately, calorie tracking is the
most boring and time consuming part of dieting, which could be difficult
to stick to for a long time. However, you can still lose weight
without tracking every calorie you have eaten, learn how.
Food Recommendation for 1300 Calorie Diet:
This is a flexible diet plan so you can pick and choose the foods you
fancy, as long as you do not have more than 1300 calories per day.
However, dieters experience greater weight loss if the diet is based on low glycaemic index foods.
The 1300 calorie meal plan is given below. You can
alternatively include in your diet foods with the same nutritional
content instead of the foods listed. For example: swap 1 oz. of chicken for 1
oz. of beef or fish, an apple for an orange, etc. You can also swap
lunch and dinner or snacks on the same day and include as many calorie
and caffeine free drinks as you like. Limit your caffeine consumption of
tea and coffee to 2 cups per day. Drink 2 litres of water daily.
Before starting this 1300 calorie menu or any other diet plan seek advice from a health professional.
