1500 calorie a day diet?

By reducing your calorie intake you create a negative energy balance and this results in weight loss. So you may be thinking of starting a 1500 calorie a day diet to help you achieve this. However, what many people do not realize is that a lot of us have a basal metabolic rate very close to 1500 calories a day. This means that if you are quite sedentary, you will not lose much weight by following a 1500 calorie a day diet and even a little weight loss will take you a very long time to achieve.
 
If you want to lose a significant amount of weight quickly you need to follow a low calorie diet such as Weight to Go. This diet provides only 850 calories per day so if you follow it you will be creating an extra 650 calorie deficit per day compared to if you follow the 1500 calorie a day diet. This is an extra 4550 calories per week which is an extra 1.5 pounds of weight loss a week! So what are you waiting for?
