1200 Calorie Specific Diet

1200 Calorie Specific Diet:

The dietary Calorie is an energy unit commonly used to describe the energy content of foods. The physical unit “calorie” is the energy required to increase the temperature of one gram of water by 1 degree Celsius, and the dietary Calorie is a kilocalorie = 1000 calories. The dietary Calorie would then raise the temperature of a kilogram of water by 1°C. It is equal to 4186 joules. It is common practice to just use the unit kcal to avoid the confusion between “calorie” and “Calorie”

Although 1,200-calorie diets contain too few calories for weight loss in men — unless under medical supervision — many women can safely and effectively lose weight eating 1,200 calories a day. Using a meal plan often helps adults seeking weight loss stick within their recommended calorie allotment. The best 1,200-calorie meal plans contain a variety of healthy foods from each food group.
