The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan: The Comfort Food Diet
Meal Plan Servings: 1200 Calories

You've determined that your total caloric intake should be 1200 calories per day.

This is a lower intake and there's good research to say that this is a safe level for most folks. At 1,200 calories the body's metabolism should not slow down as it does at lower calorie intakes. Thus it won't be as difficult to lose weight.

The calculations that choose the amount of calories in The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan Plan allow for 1,200 calorie diets as the lowest amount. It might also be that you and your doctor have decided that this is a good choice.

The table below shows how many single servings you should eat from each Dr. Gourmet recipe you will cook on The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan. On the 1200-calorie per day plan, you will eat

  • one serving of a Dr. Gourmet breakfast recipe (about 250 calories)
  • two servings of a Dr. Gourmet lunch recipe (leftovers are 1/2 of a dinner serving) (about 500 calories)
  • one serving of a Dr. Gourmet dinner recipe (about 500 calories)

The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan

Over the years lots of medical research has shown that losing weight and eating healthy are not about restricting carbohydrates or fat or protein (or any other silly fad diet). It’s about calories. And eating well and eating healthy is not about just any calories. It’s about the quality of the calories you eat. That's why we've changed our name to The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan.

Eating quality calories - delicious, healthy calories - makes a successful, healthy diet plan.

With our name change comes new features!

There’s still the 2 week menu planner, shopping lists and delicious healthy recipes. We are still the only plan that offers you the ability to create menus for your whole family. We have not changed the choices for those challenged by health issues such as Coumadin use, lactose intolerance or acid reflux. Our Comfort Food Diet Plan users will find all their recipes and menu plans.

The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan now offers:

  • Complete daily exercise tracking - How many calories have you burned today?
  • Personal calorie record for menu changes or snacks
  • Overall tracking: calories in vs. calories out
  • Goal monitoring for you and all members of your family
