5 Delicious 300-Calorie Recipes To Kill Hunger

1. The 5-Minute stir fry

Veggie-based stir fries are a quick and easy way to fill your plate with low-calorie vegetables. Use spray oil and lean protein to slash the calories.

Ingredients (for one serving)


  1. Peel and chop all the veggies, making sure theyre all the same size (so they cook evenly)
  2. Chop the chicken breast into strips
  3. Heat a large heavy pan, spray with spray oil and cook the chicken until the outsides are sealed
  4. Add the onion and broccoli, stir and cook for 1 minute
  5. Add the rest of the vegetables, stir and cook for 1 minute
  6. Add the salt, pepper, and soy sauce
  7. Cook over a high heat, stirring continuously, until the vegetables have softened slightly
  8. Serve with freshly chopped coriander on top

2. Low-fat low-carb bolognese

This is a super low-cal version of everybodys favorite weekday dinner spaghetti bolognese. Use turkey breast mince (its one of the lowest fat protein sources), and switch the pasta for courgette noodles. Less fat, less carbohydrate, more protein, and more flavor!

Ingredients (for 4 servings)


  1. Chop all the vegetables apart from the courgettes
  2. Spiralise the courgettes into long noodles (if you dont have a spiraliser, use a sharp knife)
  3. Heat a large heavy pan, spray with oil, and add the garlic, onion, and carrot. Cook for 2 minutes
  4. Add the turkey mince, break it up with a spatula, and stir over a high heat until the meat is browned
  5. Add the chopped mushrooms and dried herbs, stir, and cook for 1 minute
  6. Add the tinned tomatoes and tomato paste, lower the heat, and cook for 10 minutes
  7. Steam the courgetti (this can be done in the microwave), plate it up, and top with the turkey bolognese sauce

3. Tortilla-style omelet

This Spanish style omelet is kinda deep dish, so you can pack it with plenty of low-cal high-fiber veggies. If youre really short on calories, use liquid egg whites instead of eggs (or substitute some of the whole eggs for egg whites). Liquid egg whites are pure protein, so you save on calories from the yolk. Of course, if you have the calories for whole eggs then go for it - the yolk is where the nutrition is.

Ingredients (for two servings)


  1. Peel and slice the onion and potato (make sure theyre similar size so they cook evenly)
  2. Steam the potato until its soft
  3. Spray a large heavy pan with spray oil, add the onion and bell pepper, and cook for 2 minutes
  4. Meanwhile beat the eggs or egg whites in a bowl with the salt and pepper
  5. Add the potatoes and stir
  6. Pour the eggs over and turn the heat to medium
  7. Put the spinach on top of the omelet and cook on a low heat for 5-10 minutes until the sides lift away from the pan cleanly
  8. Slice and serve with a salad, or eat cold later

4. Vegan high-fibre chili

Skip the meat and make chili from beans and pulses. Its cheaper, healthier, and means you can eat more for the calories! Whats not to like? This recipe is super filling thanks to the fiber in the beans and vegetables. Its vegan, but meat eaters will love it too. Please note that weve added the option of topping with low-fat dairy - this will obviously make it non-vegan.

Ingredients (for 4 servings)


  1. Rinse all of the beans and pulses and leave to drain
  2. Chop all the vegetables into even sized pieces
  3. Heat a large pan (choose one with a lid) and add the oil
  4. Add the onion, bell pepper, and carrots, stir and cook for 3 minutes
  5. Add the garlic and green chili and cook for 1 minute
  6. Add all the beans and pulses, stir and then add the tomatoes and tomato paste
  7. Put the lid on the pan and cook on a medium heat for 15 minutes
  8. Serve with a little low-fat creme fraiche or Greek yogurt for extra protein

5. Pumped-up protein smoothie

The addition of just one ingredient to this protein smoothie takes it from so-so to whoa! Remember, youre going for high-volume foods here. And this sure packs the volume in. This recipe can be as low as 100 calories for a ton of volume, meaning you can add toppings and mix-ins, or keep it super low calorie.

Ingredients (for one serving)


  1. Put the first four ingredients in a high powered blender and blend briefly
  2. Add the xantham gum and blend again
  3. The mixture will thicken up and expand in the blender, add more ice or water to create the right texture
  4. Pour into a bowl and add any toppings that you wish (the ones weve suggested are just to get you started!)

Hi. I read all your website and have tried thousands of diets. I simply do not lose any weight sooner than than a month and even then only a pound or two. I am tired of this struggle. I've checked my hormones and I'm fine. Why do you think nothing works? I am pretty desperate. Please say something that helps with this pain. I read how poeple lose this and that much of weight and i always wonder how? I'm 5.4 and 157. I want to be 140 and below. Despite the joint pain, I take pain killers and exercise keeping my diet 1200 cal per day. Have lost nothing during the last month. If I eat according to your calculations I would gain 50 pounds in a month. Please help.

February 10, 2018


I'm 5'2 and 220lbs, gained 50lbs due to depression within 5 months.
Im looking to lose 50lbs fast, like within the next two months and then start on a more long term, paleo diet as that has worked for me in the past, to eventually get to my goal weight of 150lbs.
I have set up a plan for myself: following your diet plan, drinking 2.5L of water and 2.5L of green tea water a day and working out for approximately 2hr 40 min a day (four 30 min cardio workouts, 8 mins of Tae Bo and then 10 min each of jumping jacks, squats, crunches as well as three 10sec planks increasing by 5secs every 2 days) dispersed throughout the day (one 30 min cardio + 2 of those exercises every two hours).
I was just curious if that's a feasible way to lose the weight I'm looking for quickly? I know its not sustainable long term but am hoping to get the 50lbs off quick and then work my slowly through the last 30lbs.

February 07, 2018


I am going through the same thing your plan sound shift and hard core. I wish I could get as dedicated more importantly stay committed, I've add 40lbs over the last 6 month I'm.5"3and 186lbs now due to depression that has been almost completely debilitating. I strive to get to the place you are cause my physical appearance is now becoming apart of the depression. I know the only way is to get started I just wish I could keep it going.
