Slim down fast: the 1200-calorie meal plan

1200 calories diet provides weight loss without hunger and severe restrictions. Learn how to create a meal plan for a day, a week or a month, cook delicious diet food and sometimes pamper yourself with favorite treats and lose weight.

BetterMe App helps women achieve their body goals with ease and efficiency by helping to choose proper meal plans and effective workouts. Start using our app and you will see good results in a short time.

A balanced 1200 calories diet is based on the principle that during the day you should eat any foods for 1200 calories. The number 1200 is the golden mean which allows a person who does not experience strong physical exertion to gradually reduce weight.
If you eat more calories a day, they will be stored in the body, and you will have health problems from a smaller number of calories. The correct low-calorie diet fits all and has practically no contraindications. The only exception is pregnancy.
When making the menu, use the calorie table of food and do not forget about the balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in your daily diet. Or you can try this seven-day meal plan. All meals are simple and you will not spend too much time for them:

I want to thank this app very much
Hi! I want to thank this app very much! Six months ago I did not believe that I could get such body. About a year ago my husband left me and I stopped taking care of myself. I ate fast food, ice cream and drank soda in large quantities. So, I gained about 15 pounds and I looked not attractive. One day, I decided that I needed to change something. I started looking for home workouts, because it was really embarrassing to go to the gym. After a while I found this app. It has not only great workouts but also meal plans. Highly recommended.

So, this app is the best for me
Good day! My name is Susan. I am 39 and I am a business lady and the mother of two at the same time. That’s why I do not have enough time to go to the gym and to look for various healthy diets. So, this app is the best for me. I can exercise at home and it takes up to thirty minutes every day. My body becomes toned and attractive. Now, I get much more compliments and attention from the opposite sex. BetterMe, thank you for the fact that now I can spend more time with my children staying feminine and young.
