This menu plan is patterned after the very popular Paleo Diet, which is known for it’s simple to follow food list, but people in the diet industry want to make it more complicated to sell books and recipes.
The goal of any diet is to fit it into your life style, not just a short fix. Once you’ve used this 7 day 1300 calorie diet and lost the weight you want, we have several variations of this menu for help in sustaining your weight at almost any calorie level.
This is an easy, one page menu for the week with included shopping list. No fancy recipes just simply the foods that you should eat if you want to lose weight in a healthy way.
The answer is, it’s not for everyone. We recommend you speak with your health provider before making any dietary changes, as all of us are at different stages of health. For the healthiest weight loss you should only plan to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week. This helps you maintain the loss for longer.
If you eat 3500 calories less than you did last week, you should lose 1 pound. In that same thought, it will take 7000 calories a week, or a 1000 calorie reduction per day to lose 2 pounds. This is perfect for someone between 150-170 currently who doesn’t (or does not like to) exercise.
Concentrating on veggies for snacks and when you feel like you need a bit more will give your body the nutrients it is really craving. If you are still hungry on this 7 day 1300 calorie diet plan, please add in an apple or orange before consuming anything not on the shopping list. It’s not about not having enough discipline or self-control. It’s all about giving your body what it really needs, not want you think you want.
If you like this, please let me know, pin it, share it, and we will make more menus. We are working on expanding the site to include more meal plans, resources, and we want to add the things you want, so shoot me a note or let me know on any of our networks.
