What does a 1000 calorie day look like?

To get a real idea of what it’s looks like to eat 1000 calories a day to lose weight, see the video below.

If you are over 160 pounds you should not attempt this diet with consulting your primary care physician to review any diet changes. See our Daily Calorie Needs Calculator to determine the calories needed to lose or maintain your weight.

If I Eat 1000 Calories a Day to Lose Weight, is it a Very Low-Calorie Diet?

The answer is yes and no, it depends on your current weight. Typically  Very Low-Calorie Diet plans or VLCD plans are below 1000 Calories a day and should be reviewed with a doctor before starting. If you are less than 130 pounds this may not be an abnormally low amount of calories to be eating per day. On the other hand, if you are exercising a lot or above 160 pounds this plan may be too difficult to start with. Please see our 1200 Calorie a day plan if you are concerned that this is not for you.
