100 Kcal Diet, a Good Plan for Many Female Dieters
As a note, the amount of recommended servings for the 1400 kcal eating plan mirrors that of the 1200 kcal daily plan. The defining difference is that there are an additional 200 kcals of energy to work with. So, at this revelation - you may be asking, "Due to these extra energy values, why aren't the daily serving recommendations increased?"
Fact is, all foods that are housed within the same food groups are not created equally where caloric content is involved. And that goes for nutritional values as well. So with the addition of these extra values, more choices relating to the higher calorie choices can be made.
For example, rather than opting for a serving of cauliflower, a small baked potato might make a great choice. Rather than a cup of lettuce, a cup of broccoli, butternut squash or zucchini might be added to the meal instead.
The ample values in this eating plan are often sufficient to meet the dietary needs of the smaller woman, particularly if she lives a sedentary lifestyle. For those who are in need of losing fat and who require up to 1800 kcals per day, the 1400 calorie eating plan can assist in tamping down those unwanted pounds. Be sure to meet with your doctor for determining the approximate amount of energy intake that your body requires daily, in addition to the recommended energy output that can strengthen and tone the body.
