In Summary

Other Healthy Options for Permanent Weight Loss

Diet Bites would also like to recommend an optional, healthy approach to weight loss.

Rather than going on a calorie-restricted diet plan, 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 2000 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.

Diet Bites recommends that before attempting any reduced-calorie daily diet to promote weight loss, that the individual meet with their doctor for approval, as well as to rule out hidden conditions that could be triggering or encouraging weight gain. also recommends basing a reduced-calorie weight loss plan or diet plan on the official food groups in order to accomplish healthy, safe weight loss as well as establish a healthy eating plan going forward, which in turn can accomplish permanent weight loss and recommended weight. also recommends daily activity pairing with a healthy daily diet for optimum health.
