DIET and NUTRITION

The Common Cents Diet for the Busy Girl offers a couple of different meal plans that will help you lose weight in the most convenient way possible. There is a regular 14 day meal plan and one that is low-sodium. There are also lists of snacks worth varying calorie values and information about adding in fruits and vegetables to complete your daily meals. On the regular meal plan, you will have meals containing 700 mg of sodium or less and on the low-sodium plan the number goes down to 500 mg. This keeps your daily sodium intake below 2,000 mg per day on the regular meal plan and below 1,500 mg per day on the low-sodium plan. The reason this program uses frozen meals is to offer you the highest level of convenience, lowest cost and automatic portion control. The meal plan suggests that women stay between 1,300 and 1,400 calories while men should be between 1,500 and 1,600.

Your entrees should be between 250 and 350 calories per serving and include three to four grams of fiber per serving. You should eat four to six servings of vegetables daily and two servings of fruit throughout the day. A typical day on The Common Cents Diet for the Busy Girl program is reflected below. Keep in mind that you are able to choose your favorite meals, so the template provides you with a calorie target rather than telling you exactly what meals to eat.

  • Breakfast: 250-350 calories
  • Snack: 100 calories
  • Frozen entrée lunch: 250-350 calories; some add-in vegetables
  • Snack: 100-200 calories
  • Frozen entrée dinner or Quick-Fix Meal: 250-350 calories; some add-in vegetables
  • Snack: 100-200 calories
EXERCISE

Exercise is an important part of The Common Cents Diet for the Busy Girl. The book includes a short chart showcasing how many calories you can burn doing certain activities. To get started, you simply start walking more. Get a pedometer and start tracking the number of steps you take each day. Over a 10 week period you will be working toward a goal of 10,000 steps per day. You start out on the first week just tracking how many steps you take and getting a feel for your normal level of activity. Starting with week two you will add anywhere from 500 to 800 steps to your daily count until you reach 10,000 by week 10. You are also encouraged to add strength training into your routine. The book encourages the use of exercise videos that you can use at home as well. The important thing is to incorporate more movement into each day.

CONCLUSION

For those wanting to lose weight without having to spend a lot of money, The Common Cents Diet for the Busy Girl can be a great tool. You can follow this diet easily and without spending a lot of extra money. This program encourages exercise, a healthy diet and a healthy weight loss of one to two pounds per week. Although eating frozen entrée meals may get old after a while, this program does seem to offer an effective means of portion control and healthy eating.
