This week’s meal plan has got to be healthy! I need to stop reaching for comfort food like chocolate and… no, it’s just chocolate that is my downfall at the moment. so I need a meal plan to lose weight.
As I am home a lot and nowhere near as active as usual, I have been piling on the pounds and I don’t like it. No jeans with elasticated waistbands for me, thanks.
I have been taking a daily walk, as I said I would in my post Seven Days to be the Best Version of Myself.
Time to develop some better habits with my eating too. Also, potentially time to feel hungry a lot!
I hate dieting. However, when I have needed to drop a few pounds in the past sticking to an eating plan has been the way to go.
A meal plan to lose weight
Snacking is my downfall. will make sure I have lots of chopped up fruit and veg around for snacks, as well as some fat free Greek yogurt. I will also buy some crackers for the evenings when I snack the most, with a low fat topping such as lactose free cottage cheese.
Breakfasts will be muesli or porridge with fruit, as usual. Lunches will be a sandwich with a hard boiled egg or some low fat grated cheese and lots of salad.
This week’s meal plan isn’t a hundred miles from what I usually eat but I will cut out a lot of the cheese and some of the carbs. I will also keep my portion sizes small.
Mozzarella, basil and courgette frittata with a large green salad for me and some new potatoes for Mr S.
Salmon with lots of vegetables. Mr S can have more new potatoes with his.
We always have a dessert on Sunday, so fruit and yogurt.
Chick pea curry with a chapati.
Vegetable and aduki bean bolognese. Broccoli.
Vegetable stew with a small portion of mashed potato. Mr S will have some baked chicken with his.
More veg stew with a piece of baguette.
Cod fillet with home made tomato sauce and lots of veggies.
It sounds a pretty healthy meal plan to lose weight, doesn’t it? Now all I have to do is stick to it!
Are you trying to lose a few pounds? Do you follow a particular plan?
