Is what you said for 1300? I have now set the goal for 1300-1400.

Hi, I hope this will be helpful. I downloaded the official diet from the FDA or some governmental agency and I recall vegetables cooked was 1/2 cup, raw veggies 1 cup. Meats 3-4 ounces. Fruit dependent on size. I would suggest you set the sparks calorie counter to 1300. and go from there. It will ask the size and amount as things and total it for you.

I've just got a book on this diet and I'm trying to find out how many servings of food 1300 calories would be--you know--grains would equal, dairy, fruit, veggies, meat, and fat. Can someone help

Thanks for getting back. I'm happy to hear that 1500. is fine. I'm enjoying myself losing slowly but I'm trying to make this program "the way I eat" and be gentle with myself when I can't adhere strictly to the plan. That's has always been the reason I'd quit in the past. Thanks again.

I use the 1500 calorie plan. 1200 is too little for me. I just hate feeling hungry all the time and after several days I just give up. I think we need to find what works for us. I don't know wether a number is even that critical as long as we're eating lots of whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies, enough protein and lots of water.

Some days I'm just hungrier than other days and I eat accordingly. I'm losing weight slowly and that's what matters to me. Hope this helps. Lizzie

Hello team, I read the Dash Diet plan book and I thought that the calorie count was either 1,500/1600 for the lower end or 2,000. at the high end. It seems that several people are working at 1,200. -1,300. range. I just started and have had good success, but I always do on a first week of any diet plan. I feel comfort and satisfied at 1,500. I know that 2,000. is a calorie maintenance number.
I have intermittent high blood pressure but I choose the Dash plan primarily to lose weight and a secondary benefit being the hypertension.
Please share with me what and how it's working for you.
