After receiving an e-mail from a reader asking if I would start posting some more low calorie meal plans, I’ve decided to start posting my daily low calorie menu/meal plans every once in a while so readers can get an idea of what I eat to lose weight. I currently eat 1500 calories a day, 1700 on days of intense exercise (which I do about 5-6 days a week). I eat a lot, but I still lose weight at a nice pace and always feel satisfied. You may need more or less calories depending on your starting weight. Please note: you should always eat an absolute minimum of 1200 calories per day to avoid your body holding onto fat, instead of burning it. I recommend a minimum of 1400 a day to ensure slow but steady and permanent weight loss.
Shout out goes to Stacy L. from Albany, NY for suggesting I post my daily meal plans. I can’t promise I’ll do it every day, but will try to at least once per week. Bookmark or follow on twitter and check back soon!
