The easy-to-follow very-low-calorie diet allows you to eat satisfying portions and still lose weight.

1500 Calorie Meal Plan
This meal plan will help you reach your calorie budget while keeping you properly nourished. No matter how you pair them on your schedule, lunch and dinner are structured to limit calories while including all the nutrients and energy your body needs to lose weight.
Eating less may seem like an easy way to jumpstart weight loss, but to lose body fat, it is important not to eat too little. If you do not provide your body with enough energy through food to meet its needs, your metabolism will change. This adjustment can make it incredibly difficult to lose weight even for the calorie-conscious dieter.
The 1500 calories diet is a good starting point for most people on a weight loss program. You should calculate your exact needs using our online daily calorie calculator here. This will ensure that your diet is optimal to achieve your goals.
The number of calories you need depends on many factors, including physical activity, gender, age, weight loss goals and overall health. It is important to know how many calories your body requires for both losing weight and maintaining it to achieve your desired goal.
