What always goes through the minds of many people when they get to see well trimmed models on the media instruments is how they can acquire the same figure. Many would do everything just to have including using some life threatening methods and products. A low calorie diet is one said to contain less that 1200 calories, which falls far below the standard calorie required by the body on daily basis; which also varies depending on ones gender. An average weight male who regularly engages physical activities would need up to about 2500 calories on a daily basis and a woman with an average weight would need up to 2000 calories.

Consuming a diet with less than 1200 calories is considered to be very risky for your health and therefore advisable that you consult a doctor, a nutritionist or a specialist before deciding to take on such diets.

This is how it works: Generally people loose weight by burning calories and excess fats in their bodies, and making sure that their calorie intake is reduced to a much lower level than the ones burned. 500 calories diet works the other way round. Instead of you working to cut down your weight, the diet ensures that you take a very low amount of calories by eating less.

The body requires a certain amount of calories for it to survive; taking less than the required amount would mean that, for your body to satisfy its energy needs, it would have to look for other sources of energy. Fats are normally considered as emergency source of energy during starvation. Due to the fact that being on this diet is more the same as starving yourself, the body would concentrate on getting the needed amount to survive from your stored body fats, and this way enabling you to loose weight fast.

For 500 calorie diet plan to be a success, it will mean that you will have to avoid taking certain types of foods while at the same time including others, this doesn’t mean that you have to forego your favorite fast foods, as long as you do not over consume meals like read meat and poultry.
