After battling with weight issues for the past year I managed to find my perfect healthy eating plan. I have always been petite and slightly underweight so I went on a mission to gain some weight and at least look “normal”.
So, I took a lot of nutritional supplements and exceeded my desired weight and for the first time in my life I was trying to lose weight and not gain it.
I signed up for yoga and started swimming which helped me lose about 3kg in 3 weeks. I had reached my ideal weight after 2 months and discovered that eating only 1500 calories daily helped me maintain my “perfect” weight.
Not only did it fit in perfectly with my new healthy lifestyle, I feel lighter, refreshed and energized after every meal.
I have put together a sample meal plan which is exactly 1500 calories and completely healthy and tasty too. I hope you have as much fun trying out the meals as I did putting them together.
1. Oats or Wheetabix with semi skimmed milk topped with raisins or bananas.
I would love to hear how you get along with your own diet meal plans. Remember to also exercise. Choose something you enjoy doing so it doesn’t feel like punishment or a chore. Happy weight loss!
