Excellent question! Generally you would reduce your calorie intake with 500-1000 calories per day and the best way to achieve that deficit is by reducing you food intake and by increasing your energy output. Usually I would never decrease a women’s calorie intake below 1200 as you then run the risk of malnutrition. Split these calories into 6 meals per day – eat some low fat protein, sufficient low GI carbs and do not forget the good fats! Fill up on salads and veggies to help contain hunger – they are in anyway high in nutrition!
