Now I often get asked a lot to write meal plans for people so they dont have to think about what they are eating and that way they will get the right calories/nutrients/minerals etc. This is fine, but I prefer not to do this, a better way is to let me analyse your diet, assess your kitchen, eating habits and potential limitations to nutritional success. This way I can provide a personalised plan that suits you and your lifestyle. You will learn more this way and develop a lifestyle change that means you’ll be more likely to stick to this type of nutrition.
However, there are places for following a meal plan and its a good way of learning portion sizes and the correct variety of foods that you should be eating throughout the day, every day. So below is an example of a 1500Kcal meal plan, perfect for anyone on a weight loss plan. It gives enough calories/nutrients to allow normal and healthy bodily functioning, but has a calorie defecit for both males and females that will allow a stable and healthy weight loss at the same time as retaining lean mass. Let me know what you think and feel free to contact me if you’re interested in improving your nutrition and taking your body to another level!!
