Any body ever go on a 1500 calorie per day diet? What would a typical daily menu consist of over 3 meals per day? Thanks!

Trying to shed some weight and reduce body fat. I am working out 4 times a week. I am 5' 7" and weigh 150lbs. I have some love handles I want to get rid of and drop down to between 10-12% body fat. I would like to drop to 145lbs. I have heard that one shouldnt reduce their calorie intake less than 1500 calories to maintain their basic daily energy requirements. Just wanted wanted to get an idea of how much food would 1500 calories consist over 3 meals? Thanks!

First you need to know what YOUR maintenance calories are. That's the # of calories consumed daily to maintain weight. You could be way over 1500, and going that low could be disastrous.

Start counting what you eat now and see where you are. Ideally you count cals for two weeks and maintain weight, that daily total is your maintenance level of calories.

I have some advice for you that you may not want to hear and it is not meant to offend you. But....Please just grow a pair, eat over 4,000 calories a day, squat, bench and deadlift and become a man. You are not a chick and do not need to show off your non existant abs.

Or just go with drew's recommendation and eat 7 fish sticks, three times a day.

Why would anyone be interested in the nutritional value of a fish stick?

So you really think that 1,500 cals a day is ideal for a 90 year old female midget, just as equally as it would be ideal for a 6'5" tall 22 year old NBA player?


:tuttut:

You have a lot to learn. Until then, you can stick to the fish stick recommendation. I doubt you're doing any of your diet, training or recovery properly, so it won't really matter what you eat, or whether you're starving yourself at 1,500cals a day.

Read up. Get educated. Listen to others. Eat More. Train hard.

anything else will just get you sarcasm.

Damn straight.

1500 calories seems way low, even at 150lbs..

Three double stacks from Wendy's + a quart of whole milk = 1650 calories (or, like someone said above, "lunch")

This is a rather strange questions really. I mean, it completely depends on the types of food you're eating. I drink that much just through milk alone. http://www.dineoxford.com/pics/img/1927/f09t0105qcsp/82.gif
