1900 Calorie Diet & Meal Plan Menu

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

This diet plan is quite nice in caloric content and should suit male dieters who do not have an active job - such as construction work.

It is 100 calories below the standard 2,000 diet which is the cornerstone set for nutrition labels.

Because the calories are generous, it's very easy to fit in all the required food groups for optimum nutrition.

The 1,900 calorie dieter will need the following servings from the food groups: two cups of fruits including citrus, two and a half cups of vegetables with the focus on leafy green, orange and yellow, six ounces of grains, five and half ounces of protein, three cups of dairy, about five teaspoons of oil - and there is about 250 calories that can be used as the individual sees fit.

Example: two cups of mixed fruit selections, 1.5 cups of mixed vegetables and one cup of steamed broccoli, six tortillas, three ounces of baked chicken and about 2.5 ounces of lean pork, two cups of skim milk and one ounce of cheese.

Diet Breakfast Menu

Bagel, Cream Cheese & Fresh Fruit
1 bagel (200 calories)
1 serving of low fat cream cheese (50 calories)
Assortment of fresh fruit: 1 kiwi, 1 plum, 1/2 small apple*, sliced (130 calories)
1 cup of skim milk (90 calories)

Opting for a whole grain bagel will increase the nutritional values. Warm your bagel with your preferred cooking choice (toaster, toaster oven, microwave to warm), then spread with the cream cheese. Enjoy with fruit and skim milk.

*The other half of the apple will be enjoyed for the morning snack with peanut butter.
