Diets are hard. If it were easy to stick to a diet, 63.1 per cent of Americans wouldn't be overweight or obese. Fad diets may be marketed as "miracle diets"; however, they promote yo-yo dieting and even weight gain. Follow an easy 1,000-calorie plan for sustained weight loss.

Caloric Intake

Divide the 1,000 calories by three for each meal to equal approximately 333 calories. If you wish to snack during the day, subtract 33 calories from each meal to equal 300 calories for breakfast, lunch and dinner and two 50-calorie snacks between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner. This gives clear direction on spacing out calories during the day.

Plan out your meals in advance so that you are prepared and don't give in to temptation or hunger by going out to eat or getting stacks.

Workout Plan

It's important to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Exercise is important to regulating your hormone levels, burning calories and shedding fat, and increasing mindful eating.
