What You Should Know
The factor that determines how easily people lose or gain weight is in their metabolism – how quickly their bodies break down food and convert it to nutrients and energy. It’s in the genetic makeup of a person but it’s also linked to how much physical activity they engage in. Many diet products or diet plans play upon this by telling people how they need to change their diet and exercise habits in order to lose weight. The 1300 Calorie Diet Plan is one such plan which promises that consumers will lose 20 pounds in about 6 weeks.
This particular diet plan advocates eating only 1300 calories per day and offers a weekly menu to meet that requirement. All the information on the menus is correct and reflects a well-balanced diet nutritionally speaking but may not be enough food for some people. The average person needs 2000 calories per day. 1500 is considered to be a severe diet and 1300 is honestly just above starvation level. It’s best to study thermogenics to determine what should be included to use fat most efficiently. We do like that the plan advocates a good cardiovascular exercise regimen which includes three of these as well as three sessions of strength training weekly. However, there really isn’t much mentioned about what to do after the weight is lost which might make it hard for consumers to figure out how to keep the weight off.
- Upon looking at the lists of meal plans for each day it looks like this is a very balanced diet.
- The diet plan makes a point to stress the need for regular exercise in addition to calorie restriction.
- The extremely low number of calories may be difficult for some people to stick with.
- There isn’t any information about how to maintain the new weight after the diet is finished.
- Although the diet lasts for 6 weeks only one week mapped out for consumers. Some people might not appreciate the monotony of this diet.
This diet has some potential to work. However, it’s likely going to be hard to maintain for many people due to the low calorie count and the monotony. For the people who have the willpower to restrict their food intake to near starvation levels this might diet will work. However, it’s simply not feasible for many others. We do approve of the stress on a proper exercise regimen. Exercise is just as important as diet when it comes to losing weight and having a healthy lifestyle.
