Diet Plans for Calorie Control

For people who don't know where to start when it comes to a calorie controlled diet, these plans by Dietitian Juliette Kellow will point you in the right direction.

The sample diet plans illustrate how much food can be eaten at a given daily calorie quota and show that controlling calories doesn't have to be boring!

1250 calorie plan

1500 calorie plan

1600 calorie plan

1750 calorie plan

The lower in colories your plan, the more careful you have to be about keeping it balanced and healthy. That doesn't mean eating nothing but veggies, but you do need to make sure you don't go short of essential nutrients like calcium.

We recommend you don't go below 1100 calories, even that is pretty difficult to sustain! If you're determined to go very low our 1000 calorie 1 day menu will give you an idea of what you need to pack in.

Weekly Calorie Counted Plans

The following plans all start at around 1100 to 1250 calories a day.

If your goal for daily calories is higher than the basic plan, you can either increase portion sizes, eat some additional foods, or enjoy a glass of wine or two.

You can do this easily in the wlr food diary. Simply add the plan then tweak it as much as you like. Take a free trial to give this a go.

The Budget Diet Plan

There’s no reason why dieting has to rely on an expensive plan or special foods.

This 4 week plan is designed so that you can shop cheaply for just as much as you need. Treats included. With a little preparation you'll get a whole week's meals for less than £35.

The Working Person's Diet Plan

Losing Weight and working full time can bring its own challenges. Dietitian, Juliette Kellow is on hand with a plan that will help you get through a hard day at the office without sabotaging your diet.

Evening meals are ready in 15 minutes. So you won't have to spend precious time slaving over a hot stove when you're tired after work.

Vegetarian Diet Plan

Being vegetarian can make putting a healthy meal plan together a little difficult. Making sure you get enough good nutrition with fewer calories is key.

Dietitian Juliette Kellow provides multiple meat-free choices for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. All calorie counted so you can mix and match.

Low GI Diet Plan

Keeping hunger at bay is important when you're trying to lose weight.

The low glycaemic index diet acheives this by keeping blood sugar levels stable. This means you shouldn't feel the need for sugary snacks, and should feel fuller for longer on less calories.

The plan is relatively high in lean protein and contains mainly low glycaemic index carbs. It's also low in fat and contains plenty of fruit and veg.

Gluten Free Diet Plan

This plan is designed for people who have an allergy, intolerance, or sensitivity to gluten or wheat.

Devised by Nutritionist Abby Campbell, the plan is nutritionally balanced whilst providing meals geared towards boosting the microbiome (gut health).

Detox Diet Plan

No potions, powders or slimey drinks required!

This is a gentle but effective detox by dietitian Juliette Kellow. Good for getting over the excesses of Christmas, holidays, or just too much junk food. This plan will work well if you only have a few pounds to lose, or to kickstart a longer term plan.

The Happy New You Diet Plan

Need a plan to set you up for losing a stone or more? Juliette's New You plan gives you six weeks of satisfying meals and snacks.

You can expect to lose up to 2lb a week plus an extra couple of pounds in the first week or so. It might not sound much but it adds up to a stone in just six weeks. And losing weight at a reasonable pace means you’ll be more likely to keep it off once you’ve lost it.
