In Live It!, the goal is to lose about 1 to 2 pounds a week, so that means taking in at least 500 to 1,000 calories a day less than you normally do. When you set your daily calorie level, keep in mind that you can adjust it based on your goals and how quickly you want to lose weight. If you feel exceptionally hungry or lose weight too quickly, consider moving up to the next calorie level. If you move down a level, don't drop below the lowest level listed. Fewer than 1,200 daily calories for women and 1,400 for men generally aren't recommended because you may not get enough nutrients.
A guiding principle of the Mayo Clinic Diet is eating an abundance of delicious vegetables, fruits and whole grains, while also learning how to make smart food choices to help reduce consumption of fats and sweets.
