When it comes to weight loss diet, it is better to go with 1500 caloric diet instead of 1200 caloric diet. Below is a weight loss diet plan that can help you shed weight in 7 days.

According to my source at Bon Secours in Hampton roads, VA using a 1500 calorie diet maybe much better than stripping down to the bare minimum of 1200 calories. We would want you to do this as opposed to the other one because we want you to be successful. It doesn’t mean your weight loss results will be any more or less than another person. This diet is custom to the individual. You can add and take away things. Counting calories is not the best avenue but keeping a food journal would be. This is so you can catch what foods may be prolonging your weight problem. Some folks, if they’ve got a medical condition like diabetes have to monitor their sugar especially in the morning when they first eat. Certain foods trigger your sugar to be high or low and we wouldn’t want an incident so like before always check with your healthcare professional to make sure you’re on the diet that best suits you.

    I think it's great that you have a diet plan written for people to follow. You have some excellent choices there. It is important to note that the healthier diet should become a way of life so that the weight doesn't go back on. When the calories are restricted for a period of time, the body goes into famine mode so that when the calories start increasing, the body stores it up again, thus causing weight gain. Also, with low-fat items, it's important to look at the sugar content as sometimes companies will replace the fat with the sugar so that it still tastes good.

    Thank You so much for your menu. It's true that you have to make adjustments if you're diabetic. I am Type 1 which is a little different than Type 2. It's tough because it has nothing with weight. Exercise helps to control it but it's important for me to count carbs because I'm on a sliding scale. I have to be mindful of everything I put into my mouth because of the number of carbs in order for me to know how much insulin to take. Low carb diets help Type 2s also. Any information is always appreciated. It's always a plus to be educated. We all need to live a healthy life style to live a more fulfilled life.

      I meant to say that Type 1 Diabetes has nothing to do with weight such as Type 2. It's wonderful that Type 2 Diabetics can control their illness through diet and weight loss.

    With any diet, I always have two main concerns before even listening to the whole diet. My first thought is "Did you try this diet and was it successful?" Then my second concern is this is a diet. Once you go off any diet you gain weight. It has to be a permanent lifestyle change to actually work for anyone. I applaud everyone's efforts and hope they decide to make this life long commitment for a healthier lifestyle.

    On the gluten-free diet you can eat any naturally gluten-free foods, such as: meat fish fruit and vegetables rice potatoes lentils. You can also eat processed foods which don't contain gluten, such as ready meals and soups. Our Food and Drink Directory lists thousands of these. Some ingredients are confusing as they can be made from wheat but the final ingredient is gluten-free, for example glucose syrup.

    While it cannot be proven that processed foods are causing an increase in autoimmune disease, the research review does provide evidence of how the rise in autoimmune diseases has coincided with an increase of additives in the food supply. There is also evidence of a possible mechanism for how food additives may be acting on the body to produce an autoimmune response. It is possible that research may show a stronger link between autoimmune disease and food additives in the future, but for now sticking to a diet based on minimally processed, whole foods remains the best option.
