1800 Calorie Diet Menu
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Following an 1800 Calorie Diet Menu such as the one listed below is ideal for both men and most women. However, if you’re seeking to lose weight or even just maintain, you will need to do regular exercises in combination with this kind of menu plan. Losing weight must be tackled from all angles, not strictly food.

In an 1800 calorie diet menu you will need to have about five to nine servings of starch-free vegetables and fruits. You can have whole-wheat pasta, oats, brown rice, barley, skinless poultry, egg whites, fish, etc. You will be allowed to eat five servings of vegetables, four servings of fruits and three servings of dairy products. You can eat nine servings of cereals or grains. Overall, about 50 to 60 grams of fats you will get when you will follow the 1800-calorie diet menu.

Here’s an example 1800 Calorie Diet Menu plan:

Breakfast – You can either eat a scrambled egg or eat baked potato with cottage cheese (ok maybe not breakfast-like but potatoes provide an excellent source of energy especially important in the a.m.) You can also drink a glass of skimmed milk, for that extra boost of energy, or add it to a cup of porridge, cereals, toast with an egg-white omelet, muesli with skimmed milk and ham or fruits are other some great choices for your breakfast.

Lunch – A lean protein sandwich on whole-grain with a vegetable salad is the perfect choice for your lunch. You can also eat cheese and wholewheat pasta with fruit juice if you want to change your taste. Leafy green salad in combination with baked beans is also a healthy food option to kill your hunger pangs. You have the freedom to eat lean bacon but you will need to limit your servings. In case you feel hungry between breakfast and lunchtime or between lunchtime and dinnertime, you can eat fruit like apples, strawberries, guava etc.

Diner – You can eat a balanced meal with protein as your focus, as well as veggies. Don’t overkill the carbs during this time. They are better consumed at lunch. Fish, poultry, brown rice, steamed vegetables, salads and fruit or low-fat yogurt are ideal. Avoid fattening desserts and if you must curb a sweet tooth there are low-calorie alternatives to ice cream available at the supermarket. Watch what you choose though and think health first, not just the number on the scale.

The 1800 calorie diet menu plan is a somewhat lower in carbohydrates and definitely higher in protein diet. You will need to avoid eating processed foods like pastries and cakes. The basic thing to follow is to eat whole and fresh foods. Carbohydrate drinks and sweetened deserts are a strict no. You can drink skimmed milk, as it is free from the unwanted fats. Of course good ol’ fashioned water is you best calorie-free choice.
