|1200 calorie per day diet
Beverages: Don't forget to drink your water!
| Here's a Bright Idea! |
Want to take all the guess work out of what to eat?
Use diet meal delivery for 1-2 weeks to jump start your weight loss and reign in your portions.
Get a 1200 calorie menu delivered directly to your door!
Divide your weight (in pounds) by 2 and that's the number of ounces of water to shoot for everyday.
Example: If you weigh 150 pounds...
150 / 2 = 75
You should therefore drink 75 ounces of fluid (or ~ 9 cups)/day.
(Decaf) coffee or tea, unsweetened beverages and artificially sweetened beverages like Crystal Light, etc. are OK to drink, but water should be your first choice :)
