Weekly Diet Plans *

Developing a weekly diet plan when trying to lose weight can be a difficult task, although it is often best for people to record a food diary and look at the calorie consumption first, then attempt to lower the calories consumed by adjusting the amount eaten or substituting some food for a low-fat or low-cal variety. This way you wont feel like you're on a diet at all!

 

The diet plans below was used alternatively so I never ate the same weekly plan on two consecutive days. This is important as I need to follow a balanced diet made up of various foods from the different food groups. Even when I'm trying to maintain my body weight and calories are generally higher, I never keep my diet menu static for the whole week, they always change from day to day. What I eat often depends on what I feel like eating on the day. If I want a junk food binge then I will usually budget for the extra calories a day before as well as the day after if necessary.

 

Remember to calculate calories from dietary drinks!
