The 1500 Calorie Diet

The 1500 calorie diet plan may be suitable for individuals who require 1800 calories per day in order to maintain their recommended healthy weight. In addition, most smaller, petite women need about 1500 calories per day - so if they went on a diet containing this amount of energy values, they would naturally drop the excess pounds.

Lunch Menu, 500 Calories

If you wish you can prepare your hamburger at home. Use the leanest ground beef available, small hamburger buns and be generous with the vegetables. Use mustard as a spread rather than Mayo. If you add cheese, use 1/2 slice - or about 40 to 40 calories of cheese.
