How To Lose Weight On A Meal Plan
If you’re wondering how to lose weight successfully without crash diets or crazy workout routines, you might want to look into following a meal plan. Meal plans for weight loss are the easiest way to slim down, without feeling deprived. And knowing which meals to eat at what time can help you to stay focused on your goals – especially once you start seeing results! But that’s not to say that you won’t face a few obstacles along the way. Yes, your meals may be planned out, but that doesn’t mean you’ll always want to stick to them...
If you want to know how to lose weight on a meal plan (and keep it off), here are our best tips for staying on track.
Seek support when you need it
Having prepared meals in the fridge is a lifesaver, but there will be times when temptation strikes, and next minute, you’re on Uber Eats (or hitting up the vending machine at work). If this sounds familiar then it might be time to enlist the help of a professional meal plan membership service, like Jenny Craig. Jenny Craig provides each member with a personal consultant, who will not only help you to tailor your weight loss plan according to your goals, but who’ll also be there to guide you through those tempting moments..
Have fun with new flavours
The biggest mistake you can make when trying to lose weight is to force yourself to eat foods that you know you don’t like. Sure, no one truly prefers a salad over pizza, but a meal plan can be full of delicious meals that you’ll actually enjoy eating. Jenny Craig has an extensive menu of new foods and flavours to experience (including Chicken Pad Thai, Pizza, and Lamb Moussaka and Chocolate Pudding), which means you’ll be able to experience a whole new variety of breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks and not get bored with your food choices. Plus, your personal consultant will help teach you the correct portion sizes of different meals, which is something that will continue to benefit you even when you’re not on a meal plan.
Don’t completely cut out indulgences
If there are certain foods that you truly look forward to, such as a 3pm snack or festive foods like Christmas turkey (with the stuffing), then you shouldn’t cut them out forever. Joining a meal plan service means that you have delicious snacks, such as Chocolate pudding, Cheesy Popcorn, Oregano & Thyme Crunchies, ready to satisfy most of your cravings, and access to a personal consultant who can show you how to enjoy your favourite foods (and navigate the food-loaded festive season) without any setbacks.
Track your goals and achievements
Following a meal plan is a great first step for your weight loss journey, but don’t forget to write down some goals and keep checking in with where you’re at with them. Whether it’s to lose 5kg or drink more water, seeing progress and celebrating little wins will help to keep you on track and prove that you CAN do it! You might even want to enlist a friend/colleague/partner to do a meal plan with you so that you can support and encourage each other as you go. And don’t forget to reward your wins too with non-food related activities, such as a massage or a new book.
