How to make a healthy meal plan for weight loss?

There are two main approaches to meal planning. Some people do meal prepping. They cook large batches of several dishes once a week and divide them into containers. This method might work for you if you can dedicate the whole Sunday to cooking and you’re okay with eating the same dish over the entire week.

Meal planning is another approach. It means that you decide what you will cook during the week beforehand and cook three times a day to make yourself breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. This method will work for you if you can spend 20-30 minutes per one meal every day and like the variety on your plate.

The most efficient way of making a diet plan is the combination of these two approaches. Choose the recipe you like, take twice the ingredients, and make yourself lunches for two days. Cook toasts or salads just before eating them, and make larger batches of baked or grilled dishes two to three times a week.

7-day meal plan by Unimeal
7-day meal plan by Unimeal

We believe that the Mediterranean diet is one of the best ones for weight loss and overall health. That’s why we have used its main principles to compose this meal plan: 

  • We have chosen easy-to-follow recipes filled with vitamins and minerals. Thanks to step-by-step instructions, you can prep these meals even if you’re a newbie in the kitchen. One meal takes 20-30 minutes to cook.
  • We minimized the amount of red meat but ensured that this plan contained other high-quality protein sources. Protein is highly satiating and is vital for muscle growth and maintenance. This is why every meal we offer contains some protein source.
  • Every meal has a well-balanced ratio of protein, fats, and carbs.

Each day includes meals for about 1200-1500 calories. But we’re all different. Choose recipes and meal days according to your needs in calories. 

Recipes for a 7-day weight loss meal plan

Here is an example of a 7-day meal plan. There are three square meals a day: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Before using them, calculate your TDEE to determine how many calories you should be eating. Amend our meal plan so you can be in a 300-500 calorie deficit every day. Such a deficit will help you lose one pound a week, which is considered a great speed for weight loss and weight maintenance.
