500 Calorie Diet

Core is very simple and consists in choosing your optimal daily caloric intake. Number, from which we’ll push off, is 500. But this does not mean that every day you will eat the food, the energy value is equal to five hundred calories. In order to successfully use this diet, you need to make a simple calculation, which guarantees lasting results and a gradual reduction in weight (0.5 to 1 kg per day).
So, how to calculate the optimal calories for your height and weight? It’s simple.

First, calculate which of the energy balance conditions is performed in your case. To do this, subtract from the value of your height (in centimeters) to 100. The resulting value compare with your weight in kilograms.
1. If the weight in “kg” is greater than or equal to that number, then you are the condition number 1.
2. If the weight in “kg” less than this number, then you are the condition number 2.
Subtract the value of the growth in centimeters the value of your weight in “kg”. Then multiply the result by 2, if for you the condition number 2 or multiply by 3, if for you the condition number 1. The final figure is addition to calories, which you want to add up to the required 500 calories a day.

To make it more clearly, we give two examples:

All that is required of you – to make simple math!

Example 1.
Let’s say your height and weight is respectively 167 cm and 68 kg.
Will calculate which of the conditions (№ 1 and № 2) holds in your case.
167-100 = 67 , 68>67. Hence, the condition number 1.
Then, 167-68 = 99. Since the condition number 1, then multiply 99 by 3.
99 * 3 = 297.
Total: 500 + 297 = 797 calories you are allowed to consume daily. The excess is possible, but not more than 100 calories!

Example 2.
Let’s say your height and weight is respectively 167 cm and 66 kg.
Will calculate which of the conditions (№ 1 and № 2) holds in your case.
167-100 = 67 , 66 <67. Hence, the condition number 2.
Then, 167-66 = 101. Since the condition number 2, then multiply 101 by 2.
101 * 2 = 202.
Total: 500 + 202 = 702 calories you are allowed to consume daily. The excess is possible, but not more than 100 calories!

As you see the difference between two kilograms is nearly 100 calories. Therefore, be sure to calculate the optimal calorie content.
There are no restrictions on what foods you can eat during a diet. The main thing is not to go beyond the acceptable amount of calories per day. Amount calculated by you on the above principle.
Remember that not only the food, but drinks contain calories, especially sweet pops.
