The 900 calorie diet for weight loss, a good option?

This 900 calorie diet is a hypocaloric diet in which very few calories are ingested about 900 approximately, in these diets there is usually a certain imbalance between the calories that our body needs to fulfill its functions and those that we are providing through of the diet, it is for this reason that our body to meet its needs uses fat reserves to transform them into energy to continue to function properly, so many times following a low-calorie diet is synonymous with losing weight .

However, to follow a diet of this type we have to take into account several factors: it must be a balanced and varied diet that provides us with all the necessary nutrients to avoid nutritional deficiencies, we must above all avoid the consumption of refined sugars, saturated fats and alcoholic beverages. and other toxins.

Sometimes low-calorie diets have earned the fame of unhealthy diets or false miracle diets, this is not true, this bad reputation is due to a set of miraculous proposals that promise quick results without effort and of course: « There is nothing without effort « .

The success of a hypocaloric diet depends on several factors:

  1. Be minimally trained to know how to choose the right ones, their quantity and the way they are cooked.
  2. Our willpower to be constant in our goal. ( You can see in this article how to increase your willpower ) .
  3. Practice some type of physical exercise (If we practice some physical exercise we are multiplying by 2 the effect of the diet, since the imbalance that will occur in favor of transforming our accumulated fat to convert it into energy will be even greater).

What foods can be eaten on this diet?

To carry out this diet, no additional product, difficult to find food or dietary supplement will be necessary, we will simply take into account to consume all types of basic foods, therefore we will consume: Meat, fish, fruits, vegetables, legumes, eggs, dairy (skimmed or semi-skimmed to reduce fat intake), complex carbohydrates such as pasta, rice or bread (to reduce glucose accumulation).

As you can see; the correct choice of foods has a scientific basis because it is about choosing the necessary basic foods avoiding those that make us fatter.

Guidelines to carry out this hypocaloric diet:

  • Avoid the consumption of refined sugars, sweets, cakes or other processed products, as a sweetener we can choose one with 0 calories such as stevia, or one that provides some calories but is natural like honey.
  • Avoid saturated fats, fried foods, batters, sauces, butters, etc.
  • With regard to oil, we will use extra virgin olive oil for its omega-3 content, only raw as a dressing for salads and vegetables, and we will take into account not to exceed 2 tablespoons per day.
  • Consume dairy with little fat, it is very important that both milk and yoghurts, we will try to be skimmed or semi-skimmed with as little fat as possible.
  • Red meat is necessary but it is the leanest of all, it is always preferable to put other less fatty meats such as turkey or chicken. ( Here you can see a diet based on these chicken and turkey foods that works very well for weight loss ).
  • Reduce the consumption of salt. Excess salt predisposes to fluid retention ( Are you interested in how to combat fluid retention? ).
  • Avoid all types of soft drinks as they contain a large amount of sugar , including beer and other alcoholic beverages.

Special Recommendations:

  • We can use all the spices or aromatic herbs that we consider, they can add an exquisite flavor to our dishes and do not contain calories.
  • Drink a lot of water , a minimum of 1.5 liters a day, it will help us detoxify and purify our body. You can also add as many infusions as you want.
  • Eat 5 meals a day , it is very important that you do not spend long periods without eating anything. Remember that losing weight is not stopping eating.
  • Steam or grill without adding oils or fats, you will also notice a digestive well-being.

And finally, do not hesitate, you must practice some exercise ,  at least one hour a day!
