1200 Calorie Specific Eating Plan

1200 Calorie Specific Eating Plan:

Part of slimming down involves a simple, sensible exercise and eating plan. If you’re determined to lose weight, choosing healthier foods and counting calories is essential, but you might be surprised that slashing calories to the bare minimum isn’t the ticket to weight-loss success.

The principle behind weight loss is simple: you either have to burn more or eat fewer calories. To lose weight, you need to create an energy (or calorie) deficit by eating fewer calories, increasing the number of calories you burn through physical activity, or both. Typically, what is recommended as the safest method is a combination of eating fewer calories and burning calories through physical activity. While you do report that you are dieting and counting calories, you do not mention that you are doing physical activity and exercise, which, as mentioned above, is so important in the safe weight-loss equation.
