A 1,800 calorie pescatarian diet, carefully planned, can promote healthy eating habits for individuals aiming for weight loss. Be mindful that calorie needs vary, hence caloric intake should align with personal goals and lifestyle.
Who should try this diet?
If you’re focused on losing weight, a diet that aims for an average of 1,800 calories can be a highly effective approach. This calorie level provides ample energy to support your daily activities and exercise routines, while creating enough of a caloric deficit to encourage weight loss.
Of course, this amount of calories should only be followed by individuals with a moderate level of activity.
However! It’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s calorie requirements are unique. Therefore, determining the appropriate daily calorie intake based on your specific goals, whether it be losing fat, building muscle, or adopting a healthy lifestyle, is paramount for success.
If following this style of meal plan creates unwanted weight loss, it may be necessary to increase total calories consumed accordingly.
