It’s hard to find a practical diet that you can fit into your daily life. Oh, they’re out there but it can be difficult to sift through all the bad ones. Prevention Magazine has re-released its 400 Calorie Diet, which debuted January 2010. The book aims to provide effective weight loss in a manner that can be sustained long-term.
The 400 Calorie Diet is pretty clear-cut. Consume four meals a day, each containing about 400 calories. By practicing portion control, the diet advocates eating whatever you want, within reason. With 400 tips and recipes for 400-calorie meals, you’re bound to find something in there for you. Included are tips for dining out, drive-thru and coffee shop meals that, let’s face it, everyone encounters on occasion.
This is a diet that can be used regardless of your eating habits, simply reduce the number of calories you consume and eat consistently throughout the day. The responsibility of choosing those calories wisely is left to you – fresh meals prepared at home versus fast-food.
If you’re looking for more immediate results, The 400 Calorie Diet features a two-week Quick Slim. The Quick Slim jump-starts your diet by reducing your caloric intake to 1,200 calories per day. It also places greater emphasis on exercise. The classic 400 Calorie Fix also encourages exercise but it doesn’t provide samples or specific routines. You can find great fitness routines on the Prevention site Find a Workout.
