Meal plan a little difficult to follow.


  • Nov 16, 2012 8:42 AM GMT
    I'm single and I buy all of my own food. Need to lose a little weight and was looking at the meal plan they got on here, but there are too many separate items to buy in a week that would spoil before I could finish them. Anybody else got a meal plan that works for them on a smaller scale?

    Honestly simplicity is the best tool to eat healthy

    Start by buying a rice cooker - simple and easy to use,
    Buy pre-washed vegetables (spinach, cherry tomatoes etc)

    Frozen vegetables such as broccoli, asparagus, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc

    If you buy chicken breast or extra lean ground beef, chicken or turkey dedicate one day a week and cook everything in advance, for me it only takes 2.5 hours to cook everything and put it in small containers, these work wonders and save you money

    Also getting into the habit of reading the food label it's a great tool, stay away from foods that are high on sodium and high sugar content.

    Go and the web and search easy to cook recipes, as I said, simplicity is the best tool..

    Good luck man..

    Utilize your freezer. Almost every thing I make is like a meal for 4. So I just divide it into 4 parts and freeze it. Its great for when you don't have time to cook!

    If you don't mind a little monotony, just construct 1 healthy meal that meets the guidelines for required food groups for a healthy diet and make it everyday. Buying that from the store makes it easy. You can just decrease your portion sizes of the parts that have higher calories.

    And of course, consult a registered dietitian because they do this professionally. There's no 1-size fits all plan for weight loss, so I'm not going to agree with what is on this website for their weight loss "meal plan."

    Consider using myfitnesspal.com and choosemyplate.gov--the latter has a better quality of food report, but the former has a better food database and an app.
