Diet plan

With the large number of diets and nutritional concepts circulating in guidebooks and on the Internet, it is difficult to make binding statements on the creation of a diet plan that meets all the user’s requirements. The specialist area of the Di?tetik is concerned with different nourishing ways, which are mostly favorable to the acceptance of the body weight or the treatment of certain illnesses. Just as variously as the areas, on which a Di?t comes to the application, is the selection of Di?tpläne.

These are prescribed, for example, as part of the treatment of various metabolic diseases or as a complementary therapy for surgical interventions. In German usage, diet is usually understood as the creation of a diet plan for weight reduction. Pre-determined plans can help to implement a dietary concept even in the usually stressful everyday life.

Furthermore a reduction diet is only meaningful if a durable nourishing and life conversion take place.

Otherwise the well-known yo-yo effect threatens, according to which it comes after the weight loss of a Di?t with resumption of the old nourishing habits to the renewed weight increase. The following section is intended to provide assistance in drawing up a diet plan for a week as part of a reduction diet. In a reduction diet, the amount of energy consumed should be 500-800kcal less than the actual daily requirement.

This results in roughly calculated 1500 kcal/day for women and 1700 kcal/day for men. There are many programs available on the Internet that allow you to calculate the calorie requirement depending on body weight, height and daily activity. The energy content of food can usually be found on the packaging.

A slice of boiled ham or a slice of cheese are also suitable as toppings. The fruity version of a calorie-reduced breakfast consists of 125 mg low-fat yogurt, a handful of unsweetened muesli with and a banana or an apple. The daily lunch should include about 500 kcal.

Even dinner should only contain about 500 kcal as a main meal. Reduce the amount of calories and carbohydrates ingested, especially in the evening.
