1300 calories per day

Looking to buddy up with those on a caloric deficit of around 1300 calories. Would love to get variety meal ideas from others. Would mean having your daily menu available for friends to see. I'm 53 and live in South Australia 🤙😎 Motivators also welcome to join my friend list ☺

    You want to have a caloric DEFICIT of 1300, or do you only want to eat 1300 calories per day?

    I've read that the less variety you have in your diet, the easier it is to stick to your plan, and that has been true for me. I eat the same breakfast about four days a week (eggs with veg) and a yogurt breakfast on other days. I really don't vary that much. My salads are usually the same kind. If there's all different kinds of foods in my house, I want to nibble at all of them. But if I have a big pan of zucchini lasagna in the fridge, after a few days I don't feel like eating the whole thing.

    Always happy to share what I can! I try to mix my meals up but definitely have a few staples that are common week-to-week.

    Trying to work out how to send you friend request. I'm similar age & on similar calories- any higher and I gain weight. Nightmare!! My weight gone up since perimenopause & I'm struggling to get it back down, repeated lockdowns not helping either!!
    Doc & practice nurses plus own research staying reduce carbs & up protein which I'm working on as we lose muscle mass & need less carbs-so protein plus strength training good. I've got some minor mobility issues which working on, due to surgeries & accidents over the years, as need remedying before I can up the strength training through certain movements.
