There are a lot of weight loss and strength training diets available on the internet. While some may look easy, others may look more serious. However, one problem remains the same: they are mostly generic and do not suit your personal lifestyle.
The result of following such diets is always the same. You quit following it sooner or later as it is hard for you to keep up with diets that do not suit your lifestyle.
How to Create Your Own Customized Nutrition Plan
When you find a customized nutrition plan laid out for you, it helps you to understand the proper portion size and keep a tab on the calories you intake. When you create your own nutrition plan, it can be especially useful when you are just starting out.
This is because in the beginning, you will not know what you should be eating or how much. You can sample the diet plans and choose one that fits your lifestyle and taste buds. Below are the steps you can take to create your own weight loss meal plan, or I would love to work with you as a professional to create your customized nutrition plan!
To be able to make the most of your meal plan, you should first get familiar with the portion sizes of the various foods within each food group. You will need to understand how many calories your body needs to be able to make up your personalized meal plan.
While allotted calories are not one size fits all, moderately active women need around 2000 calories per day to maintain their weight whereas if you are trying to lose weight it should be reduced to consuming 1500 calories per day. New moms will need more calories.
Create your own nutrition plan keeping in mind that you do not need to eat a certain amount of meals a day, but if you choose three meals and two or three snacks a day it will curb hunger and binges. Staying hungry will just want to make you reach out to comfort food more. To ensure that you are getting all the nutrition you need, break down each meal and snack into simple units.
Your meals should contain dense vegetables, protein, fruit, leafy greens, and grains. Your in-between meals should include protein snacks and taste enhancers. Make a menu for the whole week including all the aspects so you don’t have to worry about it every day.
It is not only about what you eat but also how much you eat that will ensure that your customized nutrition plan is working for you. Get familiar with the right portion sizes of each food group. Keeping your calories in check or doing a macro check will play a vital role in your fitness targets.
Put your meal plans together after checking the number of calories you will consume from each food group.
