The 100 calorie diet is a little different than most diets in that it doesn’t restrict the kinds of foods you can eat or include any supplements you must take. Instead, this diet takes the approach that you can eat anything you want as long as it is in 100 calorie increments. So you measure your food in 100 calorie portions and utilize the tools that are provided to assist you in this task.

This idea culminated in a book written by two sisters who have battled weight problems their entire life. They claim to have created this plan for people who love and need to eat normal food.

Well, remember you can eat anything you want as long as you measure it in 100 calorie increments. Women are permitted a calorie intake of 1500 and men 2000 calories daily. They sisters advise you to use your calories wisely by eating high quality foods and not waste calories on foods that don’t taste good.An important aspect of the program is planning and dieters are advised to write down what they are going to eat each day in advance. The 100 Calorie Diet also includes questionnaires to help dieters identify obstacles to successful weight loss such as emotional issues and poor stress coping abilities.  100 calorie diet

There are also unlimited “free foods”. Obviously, this means you can eat as many of these as you want. They are: bell pepper, broccoli, butternut squash, cabbage, carгots, cucumber, gгeen beans, lettυce, mushrooms, snow peas, tomato, zucchini, alfalfa spгouts (oh yum), Ьalsamic vinegar, bouillon, caperѕ, carob, cocoa, рickles, hot sauce, salsa, diet sοda, ѕoy sauce, Splenda and V8 juice. And finally, this diet requires that you keep track of what you eat and how much you eat through a food diary, weight charts, exercise and conversion chart, diet tips and a cookbook.

Pros:

  • You don’t have to give up your favorite foods!
  • Alcohol is allowed!
  • Makes you aware of calorie content of your foods.
  • Recommends exercise 5 days a week.

Cons:

  •  You must be very vigilant about counting calories
  •   When you begin eating normally again, you may put the weight right back on.
  •   When you begin eating normally again, you may put the weight right back on.
  •   You must plan your meals a day in advance. That can be a real headache.

Conclusion:
The 100 Calorie Diet is different than most plans, however it boils down to a basic calorie counting approach to weight loss. There are several useful tools, quizzes and tips to assist with losing weight. I would describe this plan as average with very little new to offer. However, if the idea of eating what you want while losing weight appeals to you, give it a try.
