Can a meal plan help me lose weight?
It sure can! In fact, it’s almost a guarantee. A solid meal plan will provide your body with all the nutrients and energy it needs to burn fat and be healthy. Also, the meals will contain fewer calories than what you’re currently eating. Fewer calories, along with exercise to burn excess calories, will help you lose a lot of weight naturally. And by controlling your metabolism too, you’ll lose weight quickly and efficiently. By losing weight, you’ll become much healthier and lower your risk of serious health conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
At Metabolic Medical Centers, we put together custom whole food meal plans for our patients, factoring in their individual health needs, such as allergies, nutritional needs, and metabolism. All this can increase our patients’ chance of success with weight loss and help them live a healthier life.
To lose a lot of weight, how many calories should I be consuming?
This really depends on factors like your age, gender, height, weight, activity levels, metabolic health, and others. All of these factors are taken into consideration when we put together a healthy meal plan for a patient.
One of the biggest factors tends to be gender. Generally, it’s recommended that women consume about 2000 calories a day to maintain their weight, or about 1500 calories a day to lose about a pound every week. For men, it’s recommended that they consume about 2500 calories a day to maintain their weight, or about 2000 calories a day to lose about a pound every week. It’s possible to lose more weight by consuming fewer calories and burning more of them, but this requires professional supervision.
What does a whole foods meal plan consist of?
A meal plan is always tailored toward each patient and his or her needs, including lifestyle needs, so if you want to stick with some of the foods you currently enjoy, you can do so. You’ll also be eating plenty of foods your diet is currently lacking, and you’ll be eating more optimally for your body and metabolism. For you, this could mean eating more often but in smaller portions, and/or taking meal supplements and drinking delicious protein shakes. You might also benefit from prepping your meals one day for the entire week!
With your meal plan, you’ll be able to enjoy delicious, nutritious meals with complex carbohydrates from foods like whole grains and veggies. You’ll also be able to enjoy plenty of beans, nuts, lean meats, low-fat dairy, and other healthy foods.
If you would like support and supervision for weight loss in addition to a whole foods meal plan, then we can provide this as a part of a comprehensive program here at Metabolic Medical Centers. Or if all you need is a simple meal plan, we can provide that too!
