What is 1500 Calories?
Do you count calories?
Health and weight loss success are about finding a system that works for YOU! For some people, this is what works! Knowing calorie intake & expenditure is an important part of significant weight loss.
My question is if you do count calories – do you REALLY know what 1500 calories in a day looks like? Here is a typical 1500 calorie day based on 3 meals and 2 snacks…
Breakfast: 1/2 cup oatmeal made with 1/2 cup almond milk, 3/4 cup sliced berries and 1 tbsp slivered almonds
Snack: 2 hard boiled egg and 1/2 grapefruit
Lunch: 2 cups spinach, 3 oz grilled chicken breast, 1/2 cup chopped tomato, 1/2 avocado
Snack: 1 medium apple and 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
Dinner: 4oz grilled wild caught salmon, 1 cup roasted broccoli and 1/2 baked sweet potato
