A nutritional and healthy menu for one day
An enjoyable eating plan that tastes good

Lose weight with our daily 2,000 calorie diet and exercise

Nutrition and the energy-balanced diet

Most people eat when they are bored, watching television etc. Keep yourself busy and you will not want to eat as much and the added benefit is, you will be burning more calories.

Here is an example of a 2,000 calorie dieting menu for one day. If you eat 2,000 calories per day and exercise you should lose weight.

This diet is both nutritional and healthy, but more importantly, it is not boring. Many so-called healthy eating plans have given little thought to the taste of the food on offer. Food tastes good, if we did not have the ability to taste food, we would not get fat. Our taste makes eating a pleasure, so any dietary plan should still fulfil that desire.

A quick tip!

Hold both hands together to form a bowl shape. That is the amount you should eat, at any one time, the amount of food you can hold in your cupped hands. That amount will fill your stomach but not stretch it. Remember, when you eat, it is not "an all you can eat buffet".
