1250 Calorie Diet & Meal Plan Menu for Weight Loss

Written by Thin Thin

Free 1250 Calorie Diet

A daily diet consisting of 1250 calories or less should be only attempted after the approval of your professional health care giver because nutritional needs will be almost impossible to meet. Thin Thins free 1250 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan below should be used for informational and educational purposes only.

A diet consisting of 1250 calories or less is generally recommended when drastic action must be taken to improve existing health issues where weight may pose a threat to life itself. 1250 calorie diets, or diets that are even more restricted in calories may also be recommended so that necessary surgeries and preventative care can be administered.

Rather than suffering severe hunger pains and risk going off a diet that is so low in calories - including a 1250 calorie diet plan, Thin Thin recommends a healthier approach. Simply determine your personal calorie (energy) needs based on your recommended weight.

Simply stick to a daily diet consisting of the recommended calories that can be calculated. Be sure to choose from all the food groups contained in the Food Pyramid such as outlined below in our 1250 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan.
