Following the 1200 calorie a day diet can be the key to your weight loss success. In short, this diet consists of eating 1200 calories a day, giving ample room to adapt your foods to your own likings and taste. There are a few things you should do in order to get the best results, but try not to over complicate it all.

If you start obsessing about calories and become afraid to eat anything without checking its caloric value, you will soon tire of following this diet and failure will inevitably be the result. Instead of continuously counting, you could set aside a day in preparation of this diet and calculate the values of some of your preferred dishes. Apart from that, you could locate different dishes that have a set caloric value so that you can later on easily combine all of these dishes to make your own 1200 calorie a day diet.

It is said that in general people seem to rotate 10 dishes each month that they love to eat, so make sure that you have at least 10 dishes that are easy to prepare, contain healthy ingredients and fit into a low calorie diet. This way you can easily schedule ahead and do a week’s grocery shopping following a list of ingredients you need that week. This practice will protect you from setbacks and weaker moments, plus it will ensure you love your diet enough to stick with it as long as needed to reach your desired weight goal.

If you find this is too hard to do, or if you do not have enough inspiration, you could always consult with a professional nutritionist and set up a personalized meal plan with their help. Remember that it is important that the meal plan that you design is in line with your favorite tastes and foods, so that you do not feel deprived during your 1200 calorie a day diet.
