Low-Calorie Foods

Lighten up with simple and satisfying recipes.

Different diets may come and go, but at the end of the day, successful weight management always comes back to calories. If you take in more energy (calories) than you spend, you will gain weight; eat less and you'll lose. The trick is to find meals that will satisfy your hunger, daily nutrient needs and, last but not least, your desire for great-tasting food.

These delicious recipes, complete with nutritional analysis, all contain less than 500 calories per serving and are packed with healthful nutrients. Best yet, these are not "diet" recipes, but great food your friends and family will also enjoy.
