For your convenience, we have created a 4 week weight loss meal plan full of healthy, whole foods that will help you feel energized, lose fat, and be the healthiest you can be. I’ve also simplified shopping and prepping by repeating breakfast and lunch every day for each week. If your goal is fat loss, make sure you are moving for at least 30 minutes per day in addition to following the meals. A note about whole grains – these can be tricky to pick out, because everything from cereal to breads to muffins to chips are deceptively labeled as whole grain, whole wheat, etc. For breakfast, choose a form of protein via eggs, meat, legumes, dairy, or whole grain like oats.
At dinner, aim for centering your meal around a serving of healthy protein and a heaping serving of veggies. I’m not totally familiar with porridge oats but from what I can find out on google, they would be a healthy alternative to oatmeal. Obviously not Deanna, but she would say that it would work but much of the prepackaged flavored oats have added chemical ingredients. Hi Kris, walnuts, cashews, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts (also called filberts) are all perfectly healthy.
Hi Deirdre, if you’re referring to the oatmeal, I mix it in with the berries and oats.
I track my calories, and i’m finding that I generally get about 40% Protein, 40% Fat, and 20% carbs. 2-3 pounds that comes off in a week is only water weight, not fat, which is why we recommend using body fat calipers to track progress rather than the scale, which can be misleading.
Ive lost 45lbs in the las 4 months, im starting this plan on july at the same time i start crossfit 3 days a week form 1h..is there anything i need tu add to the plan to get all the nutrients i need?
I am only 5 ft tall and at the moment I have 94lbs, but would love to be 85 and get rid of all fat from my body (like on stomach and around arms areas). I suggest using your hands to measure – a serving of veggies is enough to fill 2 hands cupped together, a serving of fruit is the same size as your fist (a medium piece). I have to say, this is one of the most helpful webpages that I have ever read…thank you. Disclaimer: All content on this website is for informational purposes only and should not be considered to be a specific diagnosis or treatment plan for any individual situation.
Just two problem foods -- solid fats and added sugars -- count for about 800 of our daily calories.
Instead of solid fats like butter or margarine, use olive, canola, and other oils that are good for your waistline and heart. Instead of baked goods and cereals with all white or refined grains, make at least half of your grains whole grains. Other healthy choices: nonfat or low-fat dairy foods, eggs, beans, and lots of fruits and vegetables. The outer shell, or "bran," of a kernel of wheat, rice, barley, or other grain is full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. You may have grown up being told to "clean your plate." The problem is that dinner plates in homes -- and restaurants – have gotten bigger.


How many calories you should have depends on your age, your gender, and how active you are. If you use a mouse every day, it's easy to grab the right size of potato at a grocery store. Eat lean protein -- fish, poultry, eggs, nuts, and beans -- at every meal to help build muscle and lose weight.  But you may need less protein than you think. Chips tend to be packed with the things we need to limit: unhealthy fat, refined grains, and sodium.
Read the label: Baked, multigrain, and vegetable chips -- like carrot and sweet potato -- have more nutrients and may have less fat. You do not have to follow the plan exactly: simply mix and match the below suggestions as needed. If after several weeks of this plan nothing is changing, consider eliminating 1 snack per day.
Look for very few ingredients on the label, all recognizable as something you might have in your own kitchen. Choose from the above options, move for at least 30 minutes every day, and be prepared to feel amazing.
I get burned out easily too which is why I had so many meals under my belt ?? Let me know how it goes for you! Some people need calorie counting at least for awhile just to get used to what it is they’re supposed to be eating and how much of it.
Peanuts actually are very similar to almonds in calories and fat, just make sure if you’re buying peanut butter that the only ingredient is peanuts (no sugar, oils, etc).
Tastes like pb&j ?? and the peanut butter I use is simply ground peanuts, no salt or sugar added.
Most of the suggestions you have in the example meal plan are self-explanatory, but some would be easier if there was a recipe. I started 6 weeks ago fitness program 6 days a week for an hour, and changed my diet to eating clean but around 900 to 1000 calories, drinking around 7 cups of water per day, however I lost only 2 lbs so far! Thanks for the helpful hints as my wife and I start getting back into this more than halfheartedly! Its amazing that there is not much info out there for the beginner meal planner who is looking to eat healthy, lose weight, and be fit as well! Use of this website and the information contained herein does not create a doctor-patient relationship. To start, learn about some of the worst food offenders and how to replace them with healthier choices.
Trans fats should be avoided as much as possible and saturated fats should only contribute 10% of your calories.
Instead, keep a mental image of a deck of cards, a poker chip, a baseball, a hockey puck, a CD, dice, and a lightbulb. But a restaurant potato is likely to be twice that big and loaded with toppings and extra calories. Serve it with a rainbow of healthy vegetables -- like red peppers, bok choy, onion, and carrots -- stir-fried in a little peanut or canola oil.


It is intended for general informational purposes only and does not address individual circumstances. For simplicity’s sake, I have suggested one night of leftovers, one night of eating out (or more leftovers), and that Sunday night you prepare enough of your dinner to also eat for lunch the entire week (at least M-F).
You can also choose to eat your whole grains only within 2 hours of exercise or before 3pm.
For extra efficiency, make large portions and use for lunches or freeze for upcoming dinners. As long as yore getting a variety of healthy fats, you’re good which it sounds like you are.
Other than Pinterest, is there a cookbook or website I should reference when following your 4-week plan?
What I did is I stopped to count calories and started to listen to my body, it seems it has a wisdom of its own. Always consult with your own doctor in connection with any questions or issues you may have regarding your own health or the health of others.
We also load up on calories in chicken dishes (often breaded and fried), sodas, and energy and sports drinks. One serving of low-fat cheese is one-third the amount of nonfat or low-fat dairy you should have in a day. It is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment and should not be relied on to make decisions about your health. Good luck and don’t be so hard on yourself ?? Look how far you’ve come already! I also started to go for a min 30 mins walk+run every evening and this seems to have the very good influence :). Never ignore professional medical advice in seeking treatment because of something you have read on the WebMD Site.
I was on a strict ketosis diet and platued hard…since that plateu I have consitintley added fat and carbs but have only lost 5 pounds in the past 3 months. Do your sums and you'll quickly realise the Lite n' Easy approach represents great value for money.
Unless you count fries and chips, fruits and vegetables don't even make a dent in our daily calorie count.
It actually did work as far as getting more fit in less time, and now I do that twice a week, but also added HIIT and walking the days I’m not working out very hard so I can recover.
Most of us get too much, raising our chances of high blood pressure and heart and kidney disease.
