1550 Calorie Diet & Meal Plan Menu for Weight Loss

Written by Thin Thin

Free 1550 Calorie Diet

Thin Thins free 1550 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan illustrates a daily menu based on the official food group recommendations.

Rather than suffering severe hunger pains and risk going off a diet that is too low in calories, 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 1550 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan.

While a 1550 calorie diet plan may be ideal for many individuals, it may be too deficient in calories for others, thus creating a decrease in speed of the metabolism - which equates to a slower rate of weight loss as the body struggles to save energy.

Thin Thins 1550 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan

Note that our 1550 Calorie Diet is a mirror of our 1500 Calorie Diet Plan, except with the substitution of a small pear for the morning snack over the plum. Enjoy water and zero calorie beverages freely.
