A Nutritious 1200-calorie Diet

A really easy diet plan that anyone can follow and watch the pounds melt away.

If you have thought about losing weight but haven’t gotten around to finding a nutritious diet plan then look no further. I have the plan for you. With this plan be sure to have two daily servings of dairy. Drink all the water you want. You can add coffee, vinegar, mustard and Splenda in moderation.

If you have health issues check with your doctor. These prepared foods are especially for many of you who don’t have time to cook but if you can it is always better to prepare your food yourself. The food you prepare is much healthier and will not have the chemicals, fats, and starches that prepared foods do.

  4. Thanks Ruby. The black bean burrito is one of my favorites

  5. Great article, Ruby. It seems like a really easy diet to follow.

  6. Thanks all but the lists of meals look confusing to me. They don’t have it exactly as I had it written. I will try and do something to make it clearer.

  7. There, That fix cleared it up. The meal plan is understandable now.

  8. Love the article, but hate counting calories. :) ~G

  9. A nice to have list on hand

  10. Ruby that diet wouldn’t feed my big toe. Sorry but I will skip that diet or add a bit to it. I don’t have a chance to get fat anyway. Go out and work a day woth me and I will show you how to stay fit and trim. Hard work will do it.

  11. Thanks guys, You are the best. I appreciate you so much.

    Amos, I am glad you don’t have to go hungry. I’m with you if we worked hard we wouldn’t be fat anyway. But, alas, some of us sit at a desk all day and we have to go hungry. Enjoy all the good food for those who can’t. Best wishes to all.

  12. I like this diet because I can choose one of these meals every day and lose weight. It’s good information for me.
