Diet Bites Color Wheel Diet Plan™
The 1,600 Calorie Diet Plan
Written by Diet Bites
As we can easily see, the more calories that we add to our weight loss plan, the more food choices that can be inserted into the plan.
For the 200 calorie difference between the 1,400 and 1,600 calorie diet plan is enough for all of the following foods:
2 ˝ ounces of extra lean ground beef, cooked into a patty
Wow! We've just created a hamburger. How about that? What else could we have added to our meal plates for that additional 200 calories?
What about a dessert of 1 cup of sliced strawberries - and that is quite a lot of strawberries - plus one small slice of angel food (sponge cake) and a serving of low fat whipped cream or non fat whipped topping.
But let's say that we're in the mood for some tasty protein.
For this amount of calories we can enjoy 1/2 cup of most varieties of beans and a small wedge of cornbread.
Wanting some dairy?
Then you can purchase the following for 200 calories: 3/4 cup of skim milk blended with 1 cup of frozen peach slices - with calories to spare for a couple of plums or 3 apricots.
Most individuals - adult men and women can go on a 1,600 calorie daily diet and lose down to their recommended weight with moderate exercise as part of the plan.
Exceptions include small women who may need fewer calories - but even they can add a heavier dose of activity to the plan to reach and maintain their recommended weight for 1,600 calories.
