Remove Coldness and Lose Weight

1200 calorie diet menu for 7 days is 1200 calorie diet plans for people who always feel cold (Yang-deficiency) about how to eat right in winter. You can find nutrition facts about fat, protein and carbohydrate. Release coldness and lose weight.

Who is right for this 7 day 1200 calorie diet menu?

a. You are Yang-deficiency or Qi-deficiency, tending to feel cold.

b. Your weight is less than 120 pound.

Yang-deficiency or Qi-deficiency people always feel cold, especially in winter. Some of them are obese. Because their Yang Qi is not enough, their metabolism is slow. What they eat cannot be digested. That's why they become fat even if they eat very less. If you are one of this group of people, try this 7 day 1200 calorie diet program.

If you always feel hot and don't be afraid of cold weather, and you still want to try this 1200 calorie diet menu for 7 days, then replace mutton soup with tofu, beans or a little beef. Eat more vegetables such as spinach, eggplant, Chinese cabbage,celery,etc.

Though many nutritionists suggest that 1200 calorie is the lowest calorie that dieters can try with, I don't think it's good for you to go from 2000 calorie diet straight to 1200 calorie diet. If you are over 200 pound and are having with 2000 calorie diet plan, then try 1500-1800 calorie first.

What food in this 1200 calorie diet menu for 7 days?

Many seasonal winter vegetables are warm nature such as cabbage, winter squash, kale, Collard Greens, Turnips, etc.. So Take more fresh local seasonal food. If you don't like some foods in this menu you may replace with other warm nature food.

We have Mutton soup for three days. This secret formula is from ancient Chinese 2000 years ago. I helps to promote Yang Qi. Another formula is Nutrition Paste. It composes of black bean, black sesame seeds, black rice, Chinese date (jujube), walnut, etc. It's nature supplement for the kidney.

For drinks, never touch iced water, iced drinks. Don't eat greasy, roasted foods and meat which will cause you to drink cold water.

What can I get after one week diet?

No matter what your purpose is, after one week 1200 calorie diet, you'll form good eating habit, lose weight and get your Yang Qi promoted.
