Meal Ideas For Weight Loss

DIY Your Own Weight-Loss Nutrition Plan With This Handy Template

It's no surprise that weight loss starts in the kitchen, but cooking isn't always realistic for everyone. To help out busy folks who are looking to lose weight, online fat-loss coach Carter Good posted a simple meal template on Instagram to make eating healthy quick and easy.

In addition to maintaining a calorie deficit (calculate yours here), successful dieting also requires food quality and the right ratio of macros. Carter simplifies dinner with this breakdown: low-cal veggies, lean protein, and starchy carbs. He added that most people get enough fat from their protein sources, but adding healthy fats into the mix is also acceptable (as long as you keep portions in check).

Here are meal examples using Carter's template:

  • Lean steak, rice, asparagus
  • Chicken, potatoes, mixed veggies
  • Salmon, quinoa, steamed broccoli
  • Egg whites, red potatoes, onions, and peppers

Follow this nutrition plan for healthy and satisfying meals!
