Cutting back to 1000 calories a day is pretty drastic, and should only be used if you just want to lose a few pounds quickly, or feel the need to kick-start a longer term weight loss plan. Our 1000 Calorie Diet Menu sample packs in as much good nutrition as possible whilst trying to keep it simple, tasty and realistic.
Even so, it’s not a good idea to stick to such dramatic calorie restriction for more than a week. Not just because you’ll be short of essential nutrients, but on a diet of just 1000 calories a day – your body will be convinced it’s in the middle of a famine if you keep it up for long.
