Low Calorie Recipies

Low calorie recipies makes a great headline, but what is 'low calorie'?

I'm no dietician, I'm just a cook, but it seems to me that a quick look at a few reference books suggests that to maintain a steady weight, women need to eat 2000 calories a day and men 2500.

Using this as a starting point I decided to describe any recipe that provides less than 250 calories per serving as 'low calorie'.
