The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan

Servings for a 1000 Calorie Per Day Diet Plan

You've determined that your total caloric intake should be 1000 calories per day.

This is a very low intake and there's good research to say that going much below 1,000 calories per day can be counter-productive. The body's metabolism has been to slow down at lower calorie levels and this can actually make it harder to lose weight.

While the calculations that choose the amount of calories in The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan don't allow for 1,000 calorie diets, it might be that you and your doctor have decided that this is a good choice.

On the 1000-calorie per day plan, you will eat

  • one serving of a Dr. Gourmet breakfast recipe (about 250 calories)
  • one serving of a Dr. Gourmet lunch recipe (leftovers are 1/2 of a dinner serving) (about 250 calories)
  • one serving of a Dr. Gourmet dinner recipe (about 500 calories)
