  1. Why Are Calorie-Controlled Meals Good For You?

    Leave a Comment

    You’ve been trying to lose weight for a while now. You’ve been eating right and have been exercising, yet the moment you step on a scale, the results say otherwise. Having complete control over the food you eat has more impact in the way your body works and reacts. According to Healthline, “A good place to start is a low-calorie diet plan that provides about 500 calories less than you need in a day, which may help you lose about a 1/2 pound to 1 pound per week. For some, this would be a 1,200-calorie diet plan.”

    Consuming a meal of 1200 calories on a regular basis is a great start for people who feel like they don’t know how to properly control their portions of food. The Fresh Plan cooks and offers weekly meals that start at 1200 calories. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are part of the daily and weekly plans, this way you don’t have to worry about eating too little, or eating above the recommended calorie amount. It is ,however, unhealthy to consume less than 1200 calories because your body may not be getting the nutrients it needs.

    Eating healthy is one part, and exercising is the other. Make sure you balance your food intake and the amount of time you’re devoting to exercising. Your health is a great responsibility, and we care for your wellness! The better you eat, the better you’ll feel!

Here’s how to tell a flash-in-the-pan plan from an effective one. Continue Reading
