your intake by 500 calories each day. To lose
2 pounds of body weight in 1 week, you must
reduce your intake by 1000 calories each day.
Convert Calories into Meal Patterns
  • 1200 kcals/day
  • 2 D, 2 Fr, 6 Gr, 4 M, 3 V, 2 F
  • 1400 kcals/day
  • 2 D, 2 Fr, 7 Gr, 5 M, 2 V, 3 F
  • 1600 kcals/day
  • 3 D, 2 Fr, 9 Gr, 5 M, 3 V, 3 F
  • 1800 kcals/day
  • 3D, 3 Fr, 9 Gr, 6 M, 3 V, 4 F
  • 2000 kcals/day
  • 3 D, 3 Fr, 10 Gr, 7 M, 3 V, 4 F
  • 2200 kcals/day
  • 3 D, 3 Fr, 12 Gr, 7 M, 3 V, 5 F
