DASH is predominantly plant-based, consisting mostly of veggies, fruits, whole grains and beans. Here, a look at a sample 1,800-calorie menu with less than 1,000mg of sodium. 1,800 Calories: Day 1 Target: 4 fruit, 4 vegetable, 2 1/2 dairy, 6 1/2 grain, 1 1/2 meat, 1/2 nuts/seeds/legumes, 1 1/2 fat, 1/2 sweet Breakfast (315 calories) 2 oz. shredded wheat squares (about 1 1/4 cup), 2 grain (200 calories) 1 cup skim milk, 1 dairy (90 calories) 1/2 cup fresh cantaloupe, 1 fruit (25 calories) Morning Snack (200 calories) 1 cup unsweetened applesauce, 2 fruit, (105 calories).

An 1800 calorie diet plan allows for an extra snack and a bit more starch than lower calorie diet plans, in order to meet the body’s needs for protein and carbohydrate. If you’ve looked at my menu plans for 1200 or 1500 calories, you’ll notice that the menus are quite similar in. 2 cups Spinach Salad, 2 vegetable, 1/4 dairy, 1 added fat (115 calories) Afternoon Snack (260 calories) 1 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt, 1 dairy (160 calories) 1/4 cup dried cherries, 1 fruit (100 calories) Dinner (400 calories) 4.5 oz. grilled wild salmon, 1 1/2 meat (200 calories) 1 cup Roasted Asparagus, 2 vegetable (50 calories) 1 small whole wheat dinner roll (2 oz.), 2 grain (150 calories).

According to the National Institutes of Health, most men and active women can lose weight eating 1,500 to 1,800 calories a day.If you’ve determined that an 1,800-calorie diet is the right target for you, the next step is planning. Without a plan, it’s difficult to stay within your calorie budget. If you’re just starting off with weight loss, this 1,800-calorie level is a great place to start.

1,500 and 1,200 calories could be too low to start and can leave you feeling hungry at the end of the day, and this slightly higher calorie level can help ensure you’re able to stick to this plan.

  • Hey There! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I hear a lot of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (look on google search engine), but I’m not sure if it is really good. Have you tried Custokebon Secrets? I’ve heard several unbelivable things about it and my sister lost crazy amounts of weight with it, but she refuses to tell me:(

    I started intermittent fasting and on 600-850 kcal per day diet for 10days now. There was a day in between where I had “cheat meal” (1600kcal). I also have started working out. So far I’ve lost 9lbs. For some reason, I don’t really feel the urge to eat more and I feel normal, if anything I have more energy.

  • Hi paul, i ate 1200 cal for 15 months and once i started eating closer to 1500-2500 and gained 10kg in 2 months and now am up 20 kg eating 1800cal. What can i do to loose around 10kg and not end up with such severe metabolic adaptations? can i ever loose weight in the future?:(

  • I couldn’t believe it when my co-worker informed me about the weight loss plan “sowo hope site” he’d discovered. Search it on Google. I really could hardly believe my eye when she lost 18 pounds so quickly I could almost watch the lbs melt away as she worked.

  • I did it! I thought staying home and NO gym I’d probably overeat and not burn calories… It’s been over a month and I can’t believe it, I lost weight??? How, I don’t know for sure. Here’s my guess. Except for work no other physical activity, I felt less hungry, some days I didn’t feel the hunger. My body was so used to the gym, socializing, coming home from gym I felt hungry. But I burned the calories so naturally I ate. Must admit kept lean and ripped but I couldn’t get the leanness I wanted, though I got stronger and more buff. Now throw in Covid-19… Staying home, sitting on my ass for long periods of time watching Paul Revelia videos�� My body went into shock. the result no hunger, no desire to eat. Maybe depression helped? at any rate the results…I’m 6′ 1″ @ 155 lbs and that’s what it took for me to get six pack, veins on my arms and the fashion model look I want. I don’t know much about muscle or being jacked BUT as far as ripped and shredded is concerned it ain’t easy and one will have to get much leaner than one thinks, much leaner. In a way I hope the gym never opens up as I know once normality returns, bye bye six pack and hello BUFF. Hope everyone is safe, healthy and happy. Let’s enjoy this life whether lean or buff��

  • I’ve been skipping ur intros for so long now Bc it was so loud lol. (No offense) but I was pleasantly surprised by the new intro I love it

  • Hi Paul, I’m currently on 1200 cal a day and have been for around 2 months, what should I do to increase my calorie intake and not gain weight?

  • Man you are not a baby, 600 is too damn low.
