That’s it from the 1000 calorie diet
But in this 1000 calorie diet, I have covered some important points which you must to focus or considered before starting with this 1000 calorie diet.
Things To Consider:
1. List of all the items to be consumed during this 1000 calorie diet
2. Eating 1000 calories a day and exercising. YES or NO?
3. Benefits of the 1000 calorie diet
4. Side effects of the 1000 calorie diet plan.
I will cover each and every point in details.
So, let’s dive into the first point
1. What to Eat in 1000 calorie diet(List of all items):
This 1000 calorie diet is basically for the one who is looking for a weight loss and this 1000 calorie diet includes small meals.
This diet plan does not comprise of big and heavy meals.
It’s just simple and short.
- Include more protein foods in your meals, I would suggest you take at least 1 gram of protein per body weight(kgs)
- Reduce the number of carbs and fat in your overall diet
- In 1000 calorie diet try to include or cover your calorie portions more from the soup in order to add more dietary fibers.
- Include more Green Veggies or Raw vegetables in your meal. I have been telling this from years, by adding more vegetables like carrot, spinach, beetroot, cauliflower, bell peppers, broccoli.
All these vegetables will help you to improve the immune system and also will boost your metabolism.
One interesting fact is that by adding more raw vegetables in your diet, this alone can help you to lose weight and more specifically it helps in reducing the lower belly fat.
- Fruits like apple, banana, strawberry, blueberries, kiwi and a portion of watermelon.
Food Items to Avoid On 1000 Calorie diet:
1. All the items that are loaded with lots of sugars and salt.
In short, try to reduce the amounts of sugar and salt from your diet.
2. Do not consume more unsaturated fats.
3. Do not consume any packed foods for at least for 2 weeks.
4. Avoid getting protein from sources like beef, pork, lamb.
Now, I’m not telling that this source of protein is not good but they are high fats too.
So, you don’t need any extra fats in your diet.
2. Eating 1000 Calories a day and exercising. YES or NO?
Well to be very honest, you are already restricting yourself by not eating much.
Anyhow you are much in a calorie deficit.
If you follow this diet plan for at least 1 week you will surely lose 1-5 lbs of fats from your body depending on your metabolism rate.
So, I don’t recommend anyone to exercise much during your 1000 calorie diet.
But, if you still feel to do some kind of exercise, then I would recommend you to just go for a walk for 15-20 minutes.
Follow this routine 2 times a week and not more than that.
Again, remember that do not stress yourself with much exercise routine.
By doing more exercise on a daily basis during this diet will make you lazy and after some time you will become weak.
So, I recommend you not to do much exercise during this diet plan.
3. Benefits of 1000 Calorie diet:
1. This diet plan is for weight loss and there is no doubt that you can’t lose weight.
So, this diet plan helps in weight loss.

4. Side effects of the 1000 calorie diet plan:
1. This diet plan cannot be used for the long term for weight loss program.
Because there will be a point where your body will not respond to this diet plan, you need to switch or change your diet plan.
2. People forget to add raw vegetables, or they don’t like Green tea and Black Coffee, so due to lack of proper rich nutrient foods, it might lower your metabolic rate.
