Eating healthy should be always first on the list. No matter how much weight you have to lose, if you quit eating healthy foods, your metabolism will slow down and your body won’t be able to receive any nutrients too.
Hence, for people who want to lose weight quickly with health foods, we bring the 410-calorie diet. This plan contains foods, juices and recipes that contain essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that help accelerate your fat-burning metabolism.
If you’re a beginner and want to lose weight, you should know that cutting down on so many calories suddenly can impact your overall health too.
As a normal woman should consume 2000 calories and a man should consume 2200 calories a day, reducing calories should be a gradual process and not a sudden decision. Here’s what you can eat when you’re on a 410-calorie diet.
1. Cucumber Juice
Cucumber is a watery fruit (botanically) with seeds. It is one of the healthiest fruits you will ever eat that is loaded with vitamins and soluble fibres. They contain a lot of vitamin K, B, C, and minerals such as copper, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.
You should start your day with a light calorie juice that keeps you hydrated throughout the day.
A medium glass of cucumber juice (watery) contains 20 calories only. To make this juice, you need two medium cucumbers. Peel the cucumbers and simply grind them in a mixture. Add a dash of salt or rock salt as per your taste and garnish the juice with some coriander leaves.
A study explains how having a glass of cucumber juice every morning on an empty stomach can aid in weight loss by controlling your cravings and suppressing your appetite.
2. Fruit Cup
They say one should always have fruits in the morning as they work well to maintain your body’s hormones and sugar levels.
A cup of sliced strawberries and grapefruits will give you only 50 calories a day. This requires 3-4 strawberries and some grapefruit.
Grapefruit contains lots of vitamin A, C, B6, Calcium, and Magnesium that are extremely important for your health. And, strawberries contain Vitamin C, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, and Dietary Fibre.
3. Greek Yogurt and Blueberries
Let us keep you fuller without eating too much here. Remember, our goal is to lose weight and not keep piling on calories.
A cup of no-fat greek yogurt with 10 blueberries has only 50 calories. You cannot add other fruits to this as it will increase the calorie count.
Greek yogurt is a great way to take care of your stomach while you’re on a diet. It treats IBS when eaten in a limited quantity. Blueberries are packed with numerous antioxidants that can treat various metabolic diseases such as obesity too. Hence, this is another great snack for losing weight.
4. Fiesta Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Tacos

5. Hardboiled Egg
An egg is the ultimate source of protein, hence, consuming an egg with your meal or in the afternoon is a great idea.
One hardboiled egg serves you with 50 calories only. You should eat only one hardboiled egg every day. Your body is on a diet so serving a little protein with or after meals can help you control cravings in the evening and throughout the day too.
You should also sprinkle some salt, fresh herbs or rock salt to enhance the taste. If you’re a vegetarian, tofu or cottage cheese can replace this. Take only a small piece of it though as it has a lot of calories.
6. Zucchini Chips
A type of summer squash, zucchini contains lots of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that can benefit you. This is especially great as zucchini has started becoming everyone’s favourite these days.
Zucchini fries contain only 50 calories. To make these fries, you need to slice zucchini in the shape of fries and with just a little bit of low-fat oil, grease the tray. Now let the fries become crispy in an air fryer or microwave.
The twist is not to use too much oil or deep fry the fries. They’re healthy, crispy, delicious and filling. They’re the best for your evening snack.
7. Sautéed Brussels Sprouts
These cabbage-like vegetables are super cute and nutritious. They have only 30 calories per cup. Having these for dinner can help you remain full and enjoy your meal as well.
Sautéed Brussels Sprouts contain 100 calories for a serving. You need a quarter pound of brussels sprouts, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and a small quantity of Parmesan cheese.
You can then let the vegetable sizzle on the pan and serve it fresh. It has many vitamins and minerals needed for your diet.
According to your body type, you should be controlling your hunger for a few hours of every day. Some people prefer eating only from 10 am to 8 pm while others prefer eating from 12 pm to 7 pm only. This allows their bodies to accelerate the fat-burning metabolism and release excess fats immediately. This is also called intermittent fasting.
Science states that this type of fasting works better than keto, paleo and fasting completely. Meanwhile, don’t forget to keep your body hydrated and have at least 2 cups of green tea every morning/evening and before bed.
Weight loss is certainly not easy but when you decide to give it all, it is certainly not that difficult too. Remember, you need to focus on your diet, sleep and a stress-free life too.
Focusing on certain areas where you want to lose weight can make it easier. You can try exercising daily, walking at least 5,000 to 10,000 steps every day.
This can help accelerate the weight loss too. In case you face some troubles while following an extremely low-calorie diet, please do not hesitate to consult your doctor.
