Meal Plan To Lose Weight

Updated: Oct 31, 2023



How To Meal Plan to Lose Weight


In today's fast-paced world, balancing work, family, and self-care can feel like a real headache!


Amidst the chaos, nutrition often takes a back seat


But what if we told you that you could regain control, eat healthily, and save both time and money in the process?


Meal Planning


In this guide, we'll delve deep into a simplified meal planning strategy that’s efficient and designed for every individual and show you how to meal plan to lose weight


Why Is Meal Planning So Important?


Reduces Stress: Deciding daily what to eat is mentally exhausting and in some cases can become quite stressful


If you are stuck for ideas or caught out at work, the stress can often lead to irregular choices of food and can take you off track


By planning, you eliminate the "What's for dinner?" debate, leading to a smoother day


Financial Savings: Eating out or ordering in every day can drain your finances


Prepping meals at home is far more economical in the long run


If also saves on food waste as everything you purchases is going to be used for the meals, you have planned


Balanced Diet: Restaurants often prioritise taste over health


By cooking at home, you control the ingredients, ensuring a balanced and nutritious diet


Step 1: Stick to a Consistent Breakfast Monday to Friday


The best way to approach a new diet is to keep things simple


And by keeping breakfast the same Monday to Friday you can achieve this


Pick 1 (or 2 at most) morning choices that are quick and easy to prepare (or pre prep such as overnight oats) and have this ready in the morning


Benefits:


Consistency: By standardising your breakfast, you create a routine that offers stability


A stable start can genuinely set the day's momentum.


Save Time: No need to hunt through the fridge every morning or stare blankly at breakfast menus


This consistency can easily save you 5-10 minutes daily, which sums up to almost an hour per week!


Nutritional Balance: Choosing a nutritious breakfast ensures you get vital nutrients like protein, fibre, and essential vitamins right at the start


Step 2: Batch Cooking Saves Time and Reduces Stress


Batch cooking is a huge stress relief as it allows you to have your meals already prepped and ready, and to structure your week to make the whole process easier


Benefits:


Time-Saver: Imagine coming home to a freezer stocked with ready-to-eat meals


Cook once, enjoy many times!


Financially Efficient: Purchasing in bulk is almost always more cost-effective


And to go even deeper, cooking in bulk means less energy/gas used during the week


Nutritional Control: When you cook for yourself, you are in control of the ingredients and can ensure the bulk of your diet is made up of at least 80% single ingredient foods to ensure you get an incredible amount of nutrients in your diet


Step 3: Simplify Lunches with Wraps (and other ideas)


So many people leave their lunches to chance


Wondering around supermarkets to grab a meal deal – then ‘scan it into MyFitnessPal’


Don’t be that person


Wraps, for example are easy to make and can be batched prepped


Make the contents of the wrap and then each day grab a wrap from the cupboard and fill it with the pre-made contents


It is super simple and quick, plus it takes out the headaches or having to make a meal in the middle of the day


Benefits:


Convenience: The beauty of wraps lies in their simplicity


No cutlery, no mess


Perfect for those desk lunches or on-the-go days


Versatility: Hot, spicy, plain… whatever the flavour it is that you love wraps make lunches varied


Even having the same ingredients but swapping hummus for a chilli-based sauce keeps the lunch varied


Balanced Meal: A wrap with veggies, lean protein, and a dollop of good fat (like guacamole) is nutritionally robust
