The 1500-calorie diet was developed for people who want to lose weight without starving and especially not cut down on their food. This is the number of energy units that should be used daily by those who decide to lose weight in this way.
Nutritionists argue that a person should consume 2000-2500 calories daily. This number also depends on weight, gender, lifestyle, health status, age and other characteristics. If the average person cuts the value of their diet to 1500 calories, they will begin to lose weight. In general, this diet is built on this statement.
As a rule, you lose weight by reducing the caloric content of your diet to this amount. This happens even without making adjustments to food but in order to ensure that the 1500-calorie diet is as effective as possible and does not cause harm to your health, it is recommended to change your diet in a certain way. Take a look at an approximate nutrition plan for the next 5 days:
