1700 Calorie Diet & Meal Plan Menu for Weight Loss

Written by Diet Bites

Free 1700 Calorie Diet


Dieters on this plan will need to include the following serving recommendations from the Food Groups: 1.5 cups of fruit, 2.5 cups of vegetables - and don't forget the orange, yellow and leafy greens, about 6 ounces of grains, and 5 ounces of proteins, 3 cups from the Milk group and about 5 teaspoons of oil.

Keep in mind that on any diet you should have a few calories to play with - so that you can enjoy the foods that you like most; for the 1,700 calorie diet plan there are about 195 to play with.

While it's tempting to add a small wedge of chocolate cake, if you're wanting cake then perhaps sponge cake will do - and you'll have only used one-half of your discretionary calories. You can use the other 100 to add sliced fruit and reduced fat whipped cream.

Making little changes can deliver substantial weight loss results; the next time that you're wanting a particular food - like the cake, think about which food you could eat that would still satisfy that particular craving, for less caloric values. Another example is potato chips; this is a salty craving. Perhaps a dill pickle would work? That would save quite a few calories.
