Creating a calorie deficit- One thing that all weight-loss meal plans have in common is a calorie deficit. Eating in a deficit allows your body to lose weight in a shorter time frame, however this does not mean that you can eat anything you’d like. It is advised that you eat nutrient dense foods to nourish your body and ensure effective weight-loss.
A good weight loss meal plan should follow these criteria:
- Includes a lot of protein and fiber.Protein and fiber-rich foods ensure that you are full for a longer amount of time, it limits your cravings and provides your body with the nutrients it needs.
- Limits excess amount of sugar and processed foods. These foods are high in calories however have very little nutrient density. These foods could ultimately cause weight gain.
- A variety of vegetables should be included in your diet, seeing that they are nutrient dense and contain a large amount of water thus hydrating your body and providing it with the nutrients it needs.
Building nutrient-dense meals- To include these tips into your meal plan, start by filling one-third to one-half of your plate with non-starchy vegetables. These are low in calories and provide water, fiber, and many of the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
Proceed by filling one-quarter to one-third of your plate with protein-rich foods, such as meat, fish, tofu, or legumes, and the remainder with whole grains, fruit, or starchy vegetables.
