You can opt for a daily diet allowing only 1000 calories only when your medical care giver recommends extreme action for any health-related reason like a surgery or when excessive weight itself might prove a threat to your life. A 1000-calorie diet plan is usually very low on food value, especially carbohydrates. So you should remember to take the advised health supplements to satisfy additional nutritional requirements.
A low-carb 1000-calorie diet plan allows you only a cereal and a fruit. Have a single serving of cereal with a cup of nonfat milk, and top it off with a medium-sized banana. You could replace this entire meal with about 200 ml of unsweetened orange juice and a cup of skimmed milk and 1/4 cup of frozen or fresh strawberries. You can blend this together to make a milk shake. You could also substitute this with 100 g of nonfat, unsweetened fruit yogurt.
A reduced-sugar 1000-calorie diet allows you only a sandwich and fresh fruit for lunch. Take a couple of slices of wholegrain calorie-lowered bread and place no more than 3 oz. of lean meat within. For the rest of the sandwich you can take any quantity of shredded lettuce and sliced vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and onion along with sour pickles, cut olives, diced mushrooms and sprouts. Have only nonfat mustard as sandwich dressing. Add one fresh plum to your meal before you top it off with any 0-calorie drink like tea or coffee without sugar and milk or water. A different option for lunch could be a wholegrain bread roll with about 70 g of tuna spread and 10 g of lowered-calorie mayonnaise with about 50 g each of shredded lettuce and yellow or red peppers and 10 g of onions.
The last main meal of your reduced-carb 1000-calorie diet regimen can consist of a couple of small shells of flour tortillas, filled with 1/2 cup of any kind of beans such as kidney or lima, a single cup of diced lettuce, one slice of nonfat cheese and 1/2 cup of cooked rice. You could also add a couple of spoonfuls of salsa sauce, a tsp. of sour cream or cheese sauce. Top it off with any 0-calorie beverage like water or unsweetened black tea or coffee. You could replace this dinner with about 70 g of roasted chicken, 80 g of boiled potatoes mashed with no more than 30 ml of skimmed milk, 50 g of boiled or steamed carrots and 60 g of boiled or steamed broccoli.
For your afternoon snack, you can have about 50 g of cottage cheese or a small bag of reduced-fat crisps, while for your postdinner snack you are allowed a cup of fresh strawberries or a single serving of low-fat chocolate drink made with hot chocolate powder and water.
