Getting Your Health Back - A Healthy Diet

By Garen Arnold

Cutting back to a healthy calorie diet is extremely important to losing unwanted pounds. Commonly, people want to cut back on their calories to aid losing weight. It's key to have a healthy calorie diet if you want to lose weight the healthy way. Also, don't get caught up on popping dieting pills to lose weight. These are bad for two main reasons. The first reason is that they increase you chance of a heart attack as well many other health risk. The other key reason dieting pills are bad is because you usually gain the weight back prior to quitting the diet pills. You need a healthy calorie diet.

Proper Healthy Calorie DietHowever, there are proper ways to cut your calorie intake down. Cutting back to 1000 calories a day in not a healthy calorie diet and is much too drastic and should only be used if you just want to lose a couple pounds quickly. I would not recommend it. So what is healthy calorie diet? For losing weight a healthy calorie diet is 1,100 to 1,700 calories a day.

Example of a Sample Diet Plan

Banana sandwich made with 2 slices of wholemeal bread and a small banana.200ml glass of orange juice

100g pot of low fat fruit yogurt

1 wholemeal roll with tuna and reduced fat mayonnaiseMixed salad (no dressing)
