How to Enjoy Food When You're on a Low Calorie Diet

Low calorie diets are adopted for a number of reasons; from weight loss to health issues, allergies to age. Whatever your need for your reduced calorie intake, the first thing you’re most likely imagining dinnertime to look like is small plates of unfilling food.

That’s where we step in.

At Youfoodz, we celebrate tasty food in every form. That’s why we’re sharing our top tips to help you make the most of your low calorie diet so you can continue to enjoy food to the fullest without exceeding your required intake.

What Are Calories In Food?

Measured in kilojoules, (1 calorie = 4.2kj) calories measure the amount of energy that is provided by food or drink. Our bodies require this energy to function - from breathing to exercising - which is why eating and drinking sufficiently is so crucial to our well-being.

The general advice on calorie intake differs for each person but can be estimated based on factors such as:

  • Your age
  • Your gender
  • Weight and height
  • How active you are

How To Get All Of Your Nutrients On A Low Calorie Diet?

To ensure you're still meeting your body's necessary nutrient requirements whilst on a low calorie diet, you should incorporate lots of healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy products and lean proteins. These not only ensure you're getting your essential nutrients, but are often low calorie foods too.

Create a balanced diet by including low calorie foods from each of your five food groups, such as those foods we listed above.

What Are Low Calorie Foods?

    Fruits, vegetables, legumes and foods which offer dietary fibre typically have a lower amount of kilojoules. Some great low calorie ingredients include:
    • Avocado
    • Cauliflower
    • Eggs
    • Greek Yoghurt
    • Chicken Breast
    • Salmon
    • Rice
    • Kale
    • Spinach

Are low calorie diets safe for weight loss?

If you have a BMI of greater than 30 then a low calorie diet is considered safe, if you are considered overweight but not obese, then low calorie diets should be followed under medical supervision.

Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not follow a low calorie diet due to smaller amounts of essential nutrients entering the body, similarly children and teenagers should avoid a low calorie diet.

Things to consider before starting a low calorie diet

If you're unsure about a low calorie diet being safe for your lifestyle, speak to your doctor as they can help to make sure you're getting all of your essential nutrients and can keep an eye on any medical conditions you may have.

You should also consider your goals for the low calorie diet. Low calorie diets are popular weight loss techniques, but you should also include exercise in your weight loss plan. If you're aiming to lower calorie intake by 500-1,000 calories per day, you should also be doing around 30 minutes of moderate exercise to help you lose weight.

Youfoodz Low Calorie Meal Plans FAQs

But, beyond Youfoodz, how else can you continue to make the most of your food without racking up the kilojoules?

How to Food Plan

Similar to our weekly plans, carefully planning your meals for the week can help you understand when you can include higher calorie foods in your meals. It gives you an opportunity to step back and assess whether there are enough foods that you enjoy in your weekly meals and makes low calorie eating much less restrictive.

How to Reduce Portion Sizes

The key to a low calorie diet is moderation. Smaller portion sizes mean you can include some of your higher calorie favourite foods, without it impacting your intake as you are eating them in controlled amounts. Smaller portions also mean you can eat little and often - making it easier to stick to your diet plan.

How to Choose Filling Foods

There’s nothing worse than reaching the end of a meal and still feeling hungry. Opting for filling, high protein but low calorie ingredients in your meals such as oats, eggs, fish, potatoes and lean meat will make every low cal meal truly satisfying.
