Weight loss does not happen overnight and it requires a well designed diet plan to follow. Weight loss begins when there is a deficit of calories. That is when you eat less than what you burn it creates a calorie deficit. However, one has to be careful that the daily consumption of calories does not fall below 1200 calories. In fact, this is the lowest calorie diet plan that a woman can follow to lose weight. Dipping below this range is not healthy and you will not get the required energy to carry out the daily activities. Make use of the online calorie counting tools to keep tab on the calories you consume on a daily basis. If you do not have the time to follow your diet plan, you can opt for commercially available diet programs. Go through the Alabama reading site that talks about Nutrisystem and diet planners for you to decide.
