A good meal plan can make it easy to prep meals and eat healthy. In fact, folks who don’t use meal plans are more likely to binge or overeat.

But not every meal plan will work for you, and that’s why I always encourage clients to design their own meal plans. That way you get to eat healthy foods you enjoy.

Feel free to use the meal plans below if they meet your preferences. And you don’t have to eat the meals as they are. You can make the snacks part of the full meals if you like. All that matters is the number of calories you consume per day.
