Calorie Restriction: Meals (also effective as Diabetic Recipes)

Starting a CR lifestyle presents a bit of a learning curve. Don't rush into any diet -- it's unhealthy. The meals we suggest have deliberately been kept simple to streamline a beginner’s regimen.

For the same reason, we have not included many recipes -- the ones we suggest are designed to get you started quickly. For more recipe ideas, visit our low-calorie cookbooks page.

Use this Quick-Jump Table to Access Each Day's Meal in a Seven-day Week:
Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5 | Day 6 | Day 7

**As noted in the Cautions and Hazards section of the Calorie Restriction Society's web site, please lower Calorie intake very gradually. The four daily meals we suggest add up to around 1700 -1800 Calories per day. If you are just beginning CR, this regimen will probably be too low in Calories. To compensate, carefully add extra Calories to each meal (see this note **).
