Hit Your Ideal Weight: Choose a Healthy Weight-Loss Meal Plan

By RealJock Staff

You can do thousands of situps and countless miles on the treadmill, but unless you're eating the right foods and the right amount of those foods, you won't lose the weight and get the body you want.

If you're ready to get to your ideal weight and improve your health and energy levels, RealJock.com has the eating plans for you. Below, check out four free, printable weight-loss programs and meal plans from RealJock's nutrition partner, Manuel Villacorta, MS, RD, CSSD, one of the leading nutritionists in the San Francisco Bay Area. If your needs fall outside of these four plans, or if you want to benefit from an advanced, interactive online weight management program including live one-on-one coaching from a team of registered dieticians, then check out Nutrition for You, Villacorta's online weight-loss management system.
