Diet Menu Plans - 1700 Calorie Diet

Here are more samples of dieting menus. The three shown below all have 4 meals / snacks, and contain around 1700 calories for the day. These don't really represent low calorie diets, I believe they are more medium calories per day.

At some point I have actually used the menus shown below although, I never used the same one twice. Sometimes I simply substitute a meal or snack for another meal with foods of similar calorie content. Also, I try to be flexible, for instance, if I feel like having a fried breakfast (as shown in sample menu #2), I keep the portions small to control calorie intake, then in order to balance total calorie intake for the day I will just eat fruit for an afternoon snack.

Some people may opt to eliminate all snacks in order to eat more "preferred" foods, I don't like to do this because I may miss out certain nutrients. A balanced diet made up of many different types of foods and ingredients as well as low in calories is the best way to control a weight problem. I believe our body may cause hunger pains if we are low in certain nutrients in order to encourage us to eat foods with the required nutrients.
