1200 calorie meal plan

  1. 1. 1200 Calorie Meal Plan (for fat loss)Bruce Krahn- www.ebodi.comEverybody wants to win at weight loss!Despite what those infomercials and marketing geniuses on television tell you winning (likeCharlie here) at losing body fat and getting a lean body isn’t easy.However it is relatively simple.For 95% of the people I coach it comes down to two things:1. Creating a calorie deficit2. Balancing blood sugarCreating a calorie deficit can be accomplished three ways: 1. Reducing calorie intake 2. Increasing calorie expenditure through exercise 3. Combination of bothToday we are going to discuss the first option- reducing calorie intake all the way down to 1200calories. This is the fastest way to induce a calorie deficit and get the pounds coming off fast.Unless you are a chronic dieter (and you know who you are) chances are you have let your dietslip and have allowed some bad habits to creep back into your eating routine. These habits haveundoubtedly put you into a calorie surplus and have caused your fat loss efforts to come to a halt.
  2. 2. Don’t worry because all of that is about to change.If you follow the 1200 calorie meal plan I am about to give you- you WILL lose weight. Theonly exceptions are if you are a person with hypothyroidism are estrogen dominant or haveanother hormone related imbalance. In my experience this accounts for up to approximately 20percent of women. If you think you fall into this category please seek testing from your medicalprofessional for diagnosis and proper treatment.Men are not immune either. Hypothyroidism occurs in men as well but in far fewer numbers.However, men can often have low testosterone and this can also impede weight loss. The onlyway to know for sure is to get tested so guys be sure to get to your doc and let them look youover if you suspect that this is happening to you.For the rest of you this means that you have to eat less junk, drink fewer calories and eat morenutrient rich foods. By doing so you are going to lose fat (duh) but that is not the only thing youwill accomplish. Here are some bonus perks:By eating fewer calories and a lot less processed crap you will be giving your digestive system abreak. Most people eat more calories than they need and this can overload your digestive system.Eating less will be giving your body a break.Eating fewer carbs (which is what I am about to prescribe) will improve your insulin sensitivity(in other words your body will utilize insulin more efficiently). Insulin is a storage hormone andtoo much of it makes fat loss impossible.Eating less will help make you less of a wimp. This may sound a bit harsh but if you want toSERIOUSLY lose fat then now is not the time to sugar coat things. All too often people saythings like “I’m starving” when they reduce their calories and then run to the next vendingmachine they see to calm their nerves and save themselves from the impending death fromstarvation.The truth is most of us are VERY fortunate and never have to worry about where our next mealis coming from. In fact, all of this access to food often gets us in trouble. I enjoy the process oftemporary calorie restriction and fasting simply because it reminds me of how blessed I am.Enough preaching and on with the diet!Here is the plan. For the next 4-6 weeks I want you to follow the following meal plan strategy.By doing so you are going to lose a lot of fat. The added bonus is that when you go off of thisplan and return to a higher calorie intake your body will be primed to gain some serious muscle(sweet)!To do this correctly you MUST nail down your correct calorie intake. Here is what I havediscovered- as a general rule if you want to LOSE weight your calorie intake should be equal toyour body weight X 8.
  3. 3. If you want to MAINTAIN weight your calorie intake should be equal to your body weight X 10.If you want to GAIN weight your calorie intake should be equal to your body weight X 12 (ormore).For the sake of this post I am going to use the example of a 150 pound female. This is what hercalorie intake should be for weight loss:150 X 8=1200 calories.Now that is pretty low but remember this is only for a short period of time and the meal plan willgive your body sufficient nutrients. Please note that while on this plan you are to consume onlynon-calorie containing beverages such as herbal teas, organic black coffee and water. In fact, aimfor drinking half your bodyweight in ounces of water daily.1200 Calorie Meal PlanBreakfast- Oatmeal plus proteinIngredients 1200 1/4Banana smallSlow cook 1/2oats cup(Dry) 1/8 cup,Walnuts choppedWhey 3 1/2protein tbsppowderCinnamon 1 tspIn a pot, add the banana, whey protein powder, and cinnamon to the oatmeal.

Cut salmon crosswise into 1 inch slices, then placethem in the lemon juice, turning a few times. Set aside. In a large skillet, heat ½ the olive oil.Add asparagus, stir until they are coated with oil. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, until almosttender and set vegetable aside in serving dish, cover and keep warm. Grill salmon.This sample meal plan equals approximately 1200 calories total for the day PLUS it is chock fullof fiber, protein, veggies and all the nutrients your body needs to be healthy, strong and lean.Nothing complicated here. You can do this.This is a sample of only one single days meals from my ebodi system- there are literallyhundreds of options for you there (with calories ranging from 1200 to 6,000 per day) and far toomany for me to list.Now get started on that meal plan!
