7 Day weight loss meal plan

Lose weight, eat well and feel great with this easy weight loss diet plan. This simple 1,200-calorie meal plan is specially tailored to help you feel energized and satisfied while cutting calories so you can lose a healthy 1 to 2 pounds per week. Each day of this 7-day diet plan features the best foods for weight loss, being high protein, high fibre foods (a combination that research shows can help with weight loss by keeping you feeling fuller for longer), and strategically balances calories throughout the day so you won’t feel starved. The calorie totals are listed next to each meal so you can easily swap things in and out as you see fit. Couple this healthy meal plan with daily exercise and you’re on track to lose the weight.

How to Meal Prep Your Week of Meals:

Carve out time at the begging of the week to get meal prep out of the way and save yourself time during the busy week.
1. Make the Ravioli & Vegetable Soup ahead of time to have for lunch on Days 1 & 2.
2. Mix up the Carrot-Ginger Vinaigrette and the Avocado-Yogurt Dip.
3. Bake the Maple-Nut Granola or opt for healthy store-bought granola to save time. Look for a granola that has around 130 calories or less and less than 6 grams of sugar per 1/4 cup.
4. Hard boil two eggs for Days 4 & 5.
5. Make a batch of Easy Brown Rice to use on Days 1, 2 & 5.
