Meal Planning Each Day *
Here are more of my own meal plans which were designed to help me lose weight over several weeks. Whenever I was tightening my dietary intake, I would still eat vegetables freely during the entire day. Grazing on raw vegetables can be fine when trying to lose weight because they are generally very low in calories. Plus, eating raw vegetables saves on cooking time and calories if they're prepared in oil or fats.
Some of the raw vegetables I include on most days are carrots, yellow or red peppers or Swede. I also like raw sprouts, but generally eat them after steaming because I prefer to eat them cooked.
I didn't always include drinks in most of the meal plans shown below, but this is because I drank mainly bottled water in order to keep the calorie intake low. I would drink water continuously during the day and at regular intervals. This gives the added benefit of part filling up the stomach before a meal so I don't overdo the portion size at any of the meals in a day's diet.
