The term "healthy meal plan" is not only applicable to those who wish to lose weight. A healthy meal plan will help you improve your overall health in an unimaginable way. However, it can also help you to avoid the different problems associated with obesity. Therefore you must do your utmost best to change your lifestyle and adapt to a healthy meal plan. You can start by following a healthy eating plan for a week, which will be outlined here. First let us see the standard figures for all nutrients to help you know whether you are eating healthy or not.
A healthy eating plan requires that 10 to 35 % of your daily calories should be gotten from protein. It also requires that the food you eat everyday should contain 45 - 65 % carbohydrate. Good sources of carbohydrates include legumes, grains, corn, milk and other foods. You must also learn to limit fat intake to 10 % and saturated fat should not exceed 1 %. Good sources of fat include coconut oil, butter, red meat and olive oil. The benefits of fiber can never be pushed aside. Good sources of fiber include vegetables, dried beans, oranges, apples and other fruits. Fiber rich foods help to regulate blood sugar level and prevent constipation.
Healthy Eating Plan for a Week
You can begin your day with one egg white and brown bread. Or you can opt for oatmeal coupled with berries and fresh diced fruits of your choice.
A smoked turkey sandwich or heavy snack is good for lunch. Choose any fruit of your choice and digest with a glass of juice. Or you can opt for a glass of green tea to keep your system free from toxins and you can take any food that is rich in protein.
Whole meat roll, mashed potatoes and skimmed milk would not be bad for dinner. Or you can opt for soup and vegetables.
You can try this meal plan for at least one week. You are also free to add any food of your choice as long as it is among the healthy food list. Remember, healthy eating is not limited to days, weeks and months.
