Low Calorie Meal Plans
Here is my first installment of weekly meal plans on Slimming Eats
I've had a lot of request to do these and always try and help where possible.
The biggest response was to include all meals i.e. Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, but for those who just want a weekly lunch or dinner plan etc, then you can just ignore the rest.
The majority of the recipes especially those for dinner serve 4 people - however if they serve more than 4, I recommend freezing up the portions you will not use so that you have handy grab and go meals in the freezer. If you are making for more or less people then you may need to double up or half the ingredients in a recipe. I always try to utilize recipes some recipes you are making so they can be enjoyed over a couple of day to reduce the amount of overall cooking you are having to do.
I also try and leave a few calories spare from a standard daily calorie allowance of 1600 calorie a day (obviously everyone's daily calories are different due to a whole host of different factors such as age, sex, weight, height, activity level and health etc) - so that you can include your own snacks, drinks or additional sides etc. Wondering how to work out what calories you should intake for weight loss? Check out this calculator on the NHS website.
NOTE: Calories given are estimated and are per portion (serving) of a recipe, for main courses (dinner) I recommend adding a serving of vegetables or salad of your choice to bulk out your plate. You should always calculate calories to the exact ingredients you use to ensure accuracy.
