the healthy meal plan which actually tastes nice

If you’re looking to lose weight, or stick to a more balanced diet, then it can be hard not to go down the two pieces of lettuce for lunch route. If you’re exercising frequently, then you need filling meals and snacks to fuel your workouts, but you also need this food to assist in seeing results. Eating a variety of foods in moderation will not only provide a well balanced diet, but it will also make sticking to a meal plan less painful.

Monday
For me, Monday’s are important in setting the tone for the whole week. If you start your week by exercising and eating well, then the likelihood is this will carry on all week.

Tuesday
If you’ve had a productive workout on the Monday then it’s good to start the day off with a lot of protein, followed by a light lunch and limited snacks.

Lunch- Tuna, Cucumber, Tomato and Lettuce with Pasta (cooked the night before then cooled is best)

NO AFTERNOON SNACK

Tea- Chicken, Cashew Nuts, Mushrooms and Rice in a Yellow Bean sauce

 

Thursday
The temptation for a bar of chocolate or a packet of crisps is probably quite high by now, but if you stick to your plan for one more day Friday allows for a cheat meal/snack. My previous nights Ab session usually means I’m more hungry than usual, so there’s 3 fairly big meals and two snacks.

Snack- Weightwatchers Strawberry and Cranberry bar

Friday
The best day of the week mean’s that you can either have a cheat meal or a cheat snack. I usually enjoy a cheat snack of melted chocolate mixed in with cornflakes, or I’ll bake some cakes. Breakfast and Snacks are pretty light in order to help balance the treat.
