1800 Calorie Diet & Meal Plan Menu for Weight Loss
Written by Thin Thin
Free 1800 Calorie Diet
Thin Thins free 1800 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan illustrates a daily menu based on the official food group recommendations.
Other Healthy Options for Permanent Weight Loss: Thin Thin recommends an optional, healthy approach to weight loss. Rather than going on a calorie-restricted 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 1800 Calorie Diet and Meal Plan. By using this weight loss formula, the odds of achieving permanent weight loss and maintaining your recommended weight are increased as there is no need to flounder-about with the adjusting of calories and foods after the weight has been lost.
