So I wanted to give you soon as I wanted to give you some more options and I’ve kind of tweaked this. So it’s I have created these recipes around what I think a lot of people would enjoy and the kind of recipes that a lot of people would enjoy and they’ve quite simple way, easy to make and they’re healthier and they’re balanced kind of what I eat in a day to lose weight.
Weight Loss Meal Plan For Women In a Healthy Way
Okay so this healthy weight loss meal plan for women is specifically for women, men or children who are still developing will need to eat more to lose weight for healthy way. I’m basing this weight loss meal plan on 1400 calories per day for weight loss but you can easily adjust the calories to anywhere between 1200 and 1600 calories a day or even more and depending on your specific calorie needs. I’ll show you at the end of this article how you can easily do that and change it up to start. I’ve got some 100% whole grain rye bread.
The key guidelines of using bread for this meal plan is that each slice should be roughly 100 calories, which most birds are but just check your brand. My biggest tip is to use bread that is 100% whole grain which will give you better sustain energy. I use rack because I have an intolerance to eat, but you can also use gluten-free bread, you can use Ezekiel bread. I’ve toasted two slices of my whole rye bread and I’m adding them to my plate.
Next I’m cracking two eggs into a bowl and whisking them quickly with a fork. It’s really easy to do, and then I’m adding a little bit of salt to that as well I’m adding just a tiny, just a tiny little bit of coconut oil to a pan. You can use any other good cooking oil that you’d prefer. I really just using such a small amount like a quarter of a teaspoon or so, and then I just greasing the pan with that just using this batch it and I’m adding those eggs to a pan over a medium to high heat and I’m scrambling the eggs up as you do to make scrambled eggs.
It’s so easy to make scrambled eggs and they’re full of good protein and once the eggs are all scrambled, you can add them to your toast. I love the 100% rye bread and this one actually has a few little flax seeds in it, then this is optional but a few fresh spinach leaves on the side that’s a nice color to the plate and it’s full of good nutrients, but basically adds no calories to this meal story, that’s great but optional like I said and I like to just add a little bit of black pepper on top and that is breakfast really filling and healthy full of good protein. Healthy fats good whole cards and it’s roughly only 400 calories for the whole breakfast, which is a good amount for a weight loss breakfast.

You don’t want to eat too little obviously, you want to start your day off with a good breakfast. So that you can have good energy for the whole morning. So I actually prepped this lunch this morning before I went to work. You can also prep this recipe the night before to take to school or work with you. The next day is my tossed quinoa and black bean salad. Very easy to make healthy and very filling I started by chopping up some vegetables, added cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber and spring onion, and always meal prep legumes and grains like quinoa and black beans at the start of the week.
I’m adding one cup of cooked quinoa to my lunchbox container and also half a cup of cooked black beans, then I’m adding my chopped vegetables about one cup of chopped cucumber and about one cup of chopped red bell pepper and also about one cup of chopped cherry tomatoes and also a little handful of some chopped spring onion. You can use regular onion if you’d prefer. I just like spring onion and just mix it all up and I made such a mess I just used a lunchbox container, so that I could take it to work.
So I made it straight into that but you can also use a bowl if you want to make it at home obviously and I’m just adding a little squeeze of fresh lemon juice over that and also some sea salt and some black pepper and also a teaspoon of olive oil for some extra healthy fats and some creaminess. Just add some creaminess you know to the salad and you can also add some chili flakes for extra flavor if you like. I do that sometimes if I feel like having something a little bit more spicy. It’s really good and I made such a mess. Okay clean that up and then you can pack it all up and take it to school or work with you like I did.
Just remember to pack a fork and I just ate mine at lunchtime at work. It was super filling give me good energy and it’s currently one of my favorite lunches. It is so good and that lunch is roughly only 400 calories as well as a snack. Today I wanted to do something super easy and accessible that I felt like a lot of you would like and that I would like to and that you can easily take with you to school or work. So I thought you’re good and an apple super simple and you can take that with you to school or work in its most simple form or you can easily fancy it up at home both for roughly 200 calories.
So yeah I have 2/3 of a cup of plain yogurt, which is roughly 100 calories. I’m using dairy free yogurt coconut. yogurt specifically because I’m dairy-free but you can use plain full cream dairy yogurt as well just check the brand that you get to see what a hundred calorie serving is for that brand and then I’ve chopped up one medium to large apple. So I’m just adding that to my bowl and if you want to add a tiny little drizzle of raw honey or 100% pure maple syrup that’s really good, as well I just used about half a teaspoon of honey and then also a little sprinkle of cinnamon. It’s so good for you and it adds delicious flavor perfect with the apple and the honey and that is a delicious easy snack that’s roughly 200 calories.
My best advice for the yogurt is to get one that is plain and unsweetened if possible, you don’t really need extra processed sugar and the apple makes the tweak enough for me. So of course you’re welcome to drink tea or coffee if you want too. Here’s just to keep in mind if you drink lots of tea or coffee throughout the day and you always add milk or sugar all of those calories. They can really start to add up, for example half a cup of unsweetened almond milk is roughly 20 calories and a half a cup of full cream dairy milk is roughly 50 to 75 calories depending on the exact one that you got.
So yeah that can all start to add up one teaspoon of sugar or sweetener will be roughly 20 calories per teaspoon, sweeteners like pure coconut sugar raw honey, 100 percent pure maple syrup. They at least still contains some nutrients while refined white sugar has absolutely no nutrients in it. It all adds up so just be aware of that. However plain black unsweetened tea or coffee is basically no extra calories. I usually drink my tea and coffee and unsweetened anyway and don’t forget to drink your 8 glasses of water per day staying properly hydrated is so important if you’re trying to lose weight for dinner.
Today I wanted to show you my current favorite salmon recipes super yummy it’s my grilled Chile maple glazed salmon and it makes part of a great weight loss than a meal that I’m going to show you that’s easy filling and healthy. So to get started, I’m roughly chopping up some vegetables, I’ve chosen carrots zucchini and purple onion, but you can use any other low-calorie vegetables that you’d prefer, which is most vegetables. I like to meal prep, so I often make multiple servings of the same meal for dinner when I make my dinner and then I can just save it for the next couple of days.
I’ve peeled and quartered the onions rinsed and sliced the zucchinis and peeled and chopped the carrots and I’m just breaking up the onions a bit, so that they cook a little bit easier and become a little bit crispier, which is what I like. I’m adding a little bit of sea salt and black pepper and all you need is about 1/2 to 1 tea spoon of cooking oil you really don’t need more than that and just toss that all around and place it in a preheated oven for about 20 to 30 minutes or until it’s cooked to your liking and then I’ve got 400 grams our fresh salmon and 100 gram pieces for four servings. So to make chili maple glaze you can add one to two tablespoons of 100% pure maple syrup to a small bowl with some fresh lemon juice.
I’m using the juice from about 2 lemon but you can use more or less if you need to just drizzle that over the salmon floods make sure you get each one and then just sprinkle some chili flakes over as much as you like, really depending on how spicy you like it and then just some black pepper and sea salt to finish it off. Of course if you don’t like the chili maple idea that’s okay, you can just do the lemon juice, the sea salt and the pepper. Yeah it will be really good as well that way but this is my current favorite way to cook salmon and you can cook that in the oven for anywhere between 12 to 15 minutes at a slightly higher temperature or up to 20 minutes at a slightly lower temperature up to you, and after about 20 to 30 minutes the vegetables should be ready and a little bit crispy, and after 12 to 20 minutes the salmon should be done.
So make sure that you put the vegetables in the oven first because they take longer. I also cooked some brown rice, I cooked quite a big part of it. So that I can save more for easy meal prep for the next few days. That’s just what I like to do, so to serve dinner I’m serving one of the 100 gram grilled salmon, Flitz to my plate with about 1/4 off the tray of the roasted vegetables, and I like to have a lot of Oersted vegetables. So I like to make a decent amount, it’s a great way to bulk up a meal, and then once serving half a cup of cooked brown rice with my meal as well and then squeezing some more fresh lemon juice over everything.
It adds great flavor sea salt and black pepper over the rice and the veggies if you need that and that is dinner and said healthy weight loss meal plan for women had to be bland and boring. This is filling tasty healthy nutritious and of course complete with good whole cards healthy fats and good protein, and that’s the best ways to get healthy to stay fuller for longer when you’re trying to lose weight and you still want to have good energy and I’m just serving the other three portions in two containers for easy meal prep for the next few days. So I just serve one 100 grams salmon fillets some of the vegetables and also half a cup of cooked brown rice into each container, and just like that I have three prep meals without any extra effort.
So now I’m gonna really quickly show you how you can adapt the calories of this meal plan to suit your specific needs, if you need 1200 calories a day to lose weight you can eat all three of the meals that I showed you today, and just leave out the snack which will give you 1,200 calories for the day and if you need 1400 calories a day to lose weight, you can eat all three of the meals that I showed you today as well as the 200 calorie snack and if you have a total frame or you’re quite active you may need to eat around 1600 calories a day to lose weight, then you can have all three of the meals and the 200 calorie snack that I showed you today and you can also add another 200 calorie snack to that.
How about trying white onion and almond popcorn which is also roughly 200 calories and it’s amazing. So to start add 1/8 of a cup of popcorn kernels to an air popper to make a popped popcorn. I like to use this little air popper, I got it from one of those you know it’s like one of those infomercial things on TV, and it actually works. You just add the popcorn kernels to the air popper without any oil or any butter and put it in the microwave for a minute or two until all the popcorn is popped. 1/8 of a cup of unpopped kernels is roughly 100 calories without any butter or oil and then you can add some sea salt and a little bit of onion powder to taste as well as 14 raw almonds which is also roughly 100 calories.
Mix it all up and there you have yourself a delicious bowl of healthy white onion and almond popcorn or roughly only 200 calories, and it’s super easy to make and if you need 1800 calories or even more to lose weight in a healthy way, that’s fun we’re all different, you may have a very tall frame or you may be very active or there may be another reason you can have all three meals that I showed you today, plus both of the snacks that I showed you and you can have another 200 calorie snack of your choice. How about a banana and a tablespoon of unsweetened peanut butter that’s 200 calories as well. So that’s it for today’s !
