What 1200 Daily Calories Look Like


Before I began this journey, one of my biggest obstacles was understanding how to prepare a meal under a limited number of calories.  Myfitnesspal.com has helped made possible for me to easily track what I eat and 
When I eat it.  Below are two typical days of food that I normally eat.  I normally try to stay under my calories, carbs, and fat.  I prefer to have more fiber and protein that is listed.  I also drink between 12-15 glasses of water daily.

I chose to limit my caloric intake to less than 1300 calories a day based on the amount of weight I need to lose.  Since Jan. 10th of this year, I have loss 48 pounds by following this plan.  Also, I do not consider this a diet plan, but a healthy lifestyle change.  There is no going back!
