Example Diet Plan

An example diet plan is just a guide to show you what a typical day would consist of for those looking to build lean tissue muscle to burn off excess fat.  It is important to note, when we talk about ‘diet’, we don’t mean a starvation diet…. here it is about what you eat and making sure you eat enough of it!  Some people are looking to lose weight, some maintain it and some gain it so you need to calculate your calories accordingly.  As long as you are getting enough protein, tweak your carbohydrate calories to achieve what you want, whether that is weight loss, maintenance or gain.

 

The below diet is less than 1,300 hundred calories so if you are below your 1,400 – 1,500 mark, have a small item in addition such as a piece of fruit or a little more carbohydrate to get you up.  Everyone is different so make sure you write everything down to adjust your calorific intake appropriately.  Remember to consult your doctor before undertaking any specific diet plan – especially if you are pregnant or have had any specific medical problems.
