Why Meal Plans Are Great for Losing Weight

Eating healthy can be a daunting challenge when you're starting out. Find out how and why Lifesum's Meal Plans make healthy eating easier.

If deciding what to eat and when is what you find the most stressful about dieting and healthy eating, you should try one of Lifesum’s meal plans.

These are similar to diet plans in that they tell you what you should and shouldn’t eat, and roughly how much you should eat, but they’re a little more specific. This is because they walk you through each meal of each day for the duration of the plan.

Lifesum offers a number of meal plans ranging from as short as one week to as long as three! While they vary in content and style, they all provide you with quick, accessible recipes, detailed shopping lists, and handy how-to’s to walk you through prepping and preparing breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks!

Popular meal plans include 3-week weight loss, keto burn and keto maintain, paleo, sugar detox, protein weight loss, vegan for a week, and Eat Like Denice; which was created together with Swedish health and lifestyle icon Denice Moberg.

For the 3-week weight loss plan, you’ll eat recipes designed to bring you to around 1600 calories, depending on your body type and a few other personal specifications.

Keto burn and keto maintain do exactly what they sound like; guiding you through high-fat, low-carb meals so that you burn fat or maintain your weight; whichever is preferred. With keto, it can often be hard to know what to eat, but on the keto meal plans, you don’t have to worry about that.

The protein weight loss plan is another 3-week plan that will help you lose weight, but this time with a focus on filling up on protein.

If you aren’t necessarily trying to lose weight but are trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle or want to try a different way of eating; paleo, vegan for a week, and the sugar detox might be just what you need. The Vegan for a Week Plan has you eating a normal calorie intake consisting of plant-based foods; with Paleo you eat more like a caveman, lots of seeds, nuts, plants and meat, and little-to-no processed foods; and on the sugar detox you learn how to phase out from food and drink high in sugar, so that you can have healthier blood sugar and more sustainable energy levels.
