Weight loss grocery list

A 7 day healthy meal plan with delicious, clean-eating breakfast, lunch and dinner options for the whole week. Download the printable PDF for the full plan, shopping list, meal prep tips and snack ideas!

Last year around this time I posted a 5-day clean eating meal plan that everyone LOVED. I heard back from so many of you saying that you used the plan to jump back into healthy eating for the new year and that you enjoyed the recipes. This sort of feedback gets me super excited so this year I’m offering another healthy meal plan, only it’s even better than last year because I’m giving you a full week’s worth of meal ideas, a shopping list, meal prep tips and snack ideas. Woot!

What is the 7 Day Meal Plan?

The 7 day healthy meal plan focuses on whole foods and each meal has a balance of lean protein, healthy carbs and fat. All of the recipes are gluten-free and many are vegetarian, although there are a few recipes with meat. They’re all easy to make, absolutely delicious and most can be made in advance. Each recipe typically makes 2-4 servings so you’ll likely have leftovers and won’t have to spend your entire week in the kitchen.

I’ve designed the meal plan for Monday-Sunday, but it’s helpful to hit up the grocery store and do some prep work the Sunday before so you’re prepared. You’ll see all the meal prepping tips in the downloadable PDF.

The meal plan is listed below with links to all of the recipes, but I also have a beautifully designed printable PDF copy for download. Simply submit your email address below and I’ll email you the printable meal plan and shopping list!

How to Use This Meal Plan

Start by taking inventory of your week. When do you have super busy days? When do you have plans at night? Be realistic about when you’ll have time to make dinner and when you won’t. Print off the grocery shopping list and head to the grocery store once to get everything you need. I’ve laid out what you need to prep Sunday night and what you’ll want to prep Wednesday night. I like breaking up my meal prep into two days so you can just spend a couple hours in the kitchen each day.

Want More?

Lucky you, I’ve created a 6-week meal plan that follows the same format as this 7-day meal plan. I give you SIX weeks of meal plans, recipes, grocery shopping lists and prep guides. For a limited time, it is available in print or digital versions.

Sunday

Tomato Bun Tuna Melt

$1.82 per serving

Budget Tip: Budget-friendly canned fish, like tuna and wild salmon, are cheap and convenient options for fast and healthy dinners. At a fraction of the price of fresh or frozen fish, you’ll get the same health benefits from canned options (think healthy omega-3 fats and protein). You can still plan to check out the fish counter when you do your grocery shopping to see what fresh seafood options are on sale. Frozen fish may be the better option as it’s often less expensive, and you can defrost it when you’re ready to use it so you know it’s fresh.

Monday

Vegetarian Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

$2.91 per serving

Budget Tip: Going meatless a few times a week is good for your health, good for your wallet and good for the environment. This vegetarian spaghetti squash lasagna, with 18 grams of satisfying protein and 7 grams of filling fiber, is a great budget recipe you’ll turn to time and time again.

Tuesday

Easy Chicken Fried Rice

$1.53 per serving

Budget Tip: Fried rice with plenty of vegetables and a little meat is an obvious choice when you want to make a quick and healthy dinner that’s easy on your wallet. If you have a little extra onion or half a leftover zucchini you want to use up, all the better: just throw in whatever veggie odds and ends you have in your fridge. Being versatile and using what you have on hand helps you save money and minimize food waste.

Wednesday

Roasted Buffalo Chickpea Wraps

$1.53 per serving

Slow-Cooker Beef Stew

Meal planning is all the rage these days. Whether you subscribe to one of the best meal kit delivery services like Blue Apron or you are just trying to plan out meals and shopping trips for the week; it’s safe to assume you’re game for anything that will make your life just a wee bit easier.

Wait! Don’t apps and websites typically make your life easier? I mean, they must – given our phones and tablets are riddled with them.

So, what if someone were to list their favorite meal planning apps and websites, so all you had to do was give them a whirl?

Lucky for you, I’ve done that here.

Just know that these are my personal picks for some of the best meal planning websites. Something about each of them spoke to me and my situation.

“Krause! Party of 6!”…

Yeah, that’s me.

So… it’s safe to say I’ve looked into a lot of meal planning sites.

Why?

  • One – to save money.
  • Two- to save time.
  • Three – to stop ordering out or cooking frozen foods so dang much!

But, and there’s always a but, simplicity is a must, and a budget is just as important as diversity.

I’m a mom trying to eat (somewhat) healthy, and I also have young kids who can eat whatever they want. I have a husband who thinks he looks good for his age (and he does!) Beer and hoagies don’t affect him.

Clue me into that superpower!

So, what I need is a meal plan that ticks all of these boxes. Yours may be different. Each family is unique and has their own set of guidelines and necessities, what they consider to be natural foods, so that is why I’ve included something for everyone in my meal planning app review.

Presenting…The 11 best meal planning apps and websites.

​​Side note: If you are looking for additional motivation to exercise and lose weight, try this app that will pay you for your weight loss efforts (up to $10,000).

Save time and money with these 11 meal planning apps:

If you’d like to jump ahead to a specific app, then here’s a quick look at all the meal planning apps featured on this page:

​1. eMeals

Free to try for 14 days, monthly fee after that

eMeals offers a choice of 15 different food styles, including:

eMeals is a subscription meal planning service. However, unlike other services such as Blue Apron, Plated, or Hello Fresh, no food is actually being delivered. Only the recipes are.

Groceries can be delivered via eMeals partnerships with Amazon Fresh and local grocers, but it is not required. It also may not be available in your area. In some instances, curbside pickup may be available in your area as well.

  • Clean eating
  • Quick and healthy
  • Paleo
  • Budget-friendly
  • Kid-friendly
  • Slow cooker
  • Vegan
  • Vegetarian
  • Gluten-free
  • Diabetic

These are just naming a few of what they currently offer. There are also options for families of all sizes. A weekly plan features 7 new meal ideas and allows for unlimited switching between food styles. A smart shopping list is generated and auto-populates as you select your weekly meals.

eMeal plan costs after the free trial are as follows:

The app is available via Google Play and iTunes, but only for subscribers.

Finally, if you’d like to learn more about this app, then I recommend checking out our detailed review of eMeals.

2. Cozi Recipe Box & Dinner Planner

Free

So, if you are familiar with the Cozi Family Organizer, this is a nice little add on feature. If you haven’t tried it, I highly suggest giving it a whirl.

The Cozi Recipe Box & Dinner Planner is available online and as an app. Both offer an import feature that allows you to surf the web for recipes and connect them directly to your profile.

You also have the ability to create shopping lists from your recipes, as well as add them to your weekly calendar – perfect for meal planning!

Specific to the app is a Cooking Mode feature, allowing your screen to remain lit so there are no interruptions (well, except for maybe your kids) when you’re making dinner. It also helps eliminate the greasy fingers on the phone when you are trying to get back to the recipe.

Also, Cozi allows you to link to multiple devices for extra convenience.

Finally, we also have a detailed review of Cozi if you’d like to learn more about this app

​3. $5 Meal Plans

Free recipes, meal planning service additional after free trial, so $5 dinners is a bit of a mashup.

There are a few neat things going on here. For starters, you can choose to simply view the recipes and then print them out and go shopping. It is as easy as that. Kicking it old school.

Another option is to sign up for the $5 meal plan, and this is where it gets interesting. For just $5 per month, the company will send you a delicious meal plan, where every meal costs about $2 per person – and in most cases less.

The meal plan includes recipes and well-organized grocery lists, and there are also free coupons available. Five dollar meal plans currently offers Classic and Gluten-Free meal plan options.

In addition to the standard weekly meal plans, they offer 6-week specialty meal plans at a significant discount to the regular price. Six-week specialty plans follow a theme, and the plans are sent to you all at once, rather than over the course of six weeks.

Currently, 4 specialty plans are being offered:

  • 30-Minute Meals
  • Slow Cooker Meals
  • Paleo Meals
  • Vegetarian Meals

*Keep in mind that this is an online service only.

Finally, we have a detailed review of the $5 meal plan if you’d like to learn more about this service.

​4. Mealime

Free

Mealime is a truly personalized meal planning companion. It allows you to identify which types of recipes you are interested in, including:

  • Classic (no holds barred)
  • Flexitarian (easy on the meat)
  • Pescetarian (vegetarian and seafood)
  • Vegetarian
  • Plant-based meal/Vegan (Also here are a few vegan protein powders that we suggest.)
  • Gluten-Free
  • Low Carb
  • Paleo (And if you want to substitute this diet with protein, then here are the five best-tasting protein powders.)
  • Keto (ultra-low carb)
  • Soy-free

You can also note any allergies, such as peanut and dairy, so those recipes are excluded, as well as tell the app which foods you don’t like.

Finally, you can pick your serving size (2 or 4), and then the number of meals you’d like to make for the week (2, 4, 5 or 6) on your plan.

Once you’ve been given your meal plans, the grocery lists are automatically generated to make shopping a snap. Imagine getting your weekly shopping done in one hour or less! And, bonus, most meals are made in under 30 minutes!

It is easy to use with its user-friendly and customizable meal plans; however, one of its biggest drawbacks is that you are limited to the recipes that are available on the app. You cannot import your own recipes. Also, you cannot save any previously used meal plans or customize calorie preferences unless you upgrade to the pro version.

Mealime is available on Google Play and iTunes.

​5. Yumm​​​​ly

Free

Touted as having one of the most extensive recipe collections, Yummly prides itself on providing you with delicious recipes that match your dietary restrictions and food preferences.

It offers everything from appetizers to smoothies and everything else from main courses to desserts. They have a sort feature that makes it easy to filter through whatever you have a hankering for that day.

Most unique, however, is Yummly’s relationship with Instacart. Instacart is a same-day grocery delivery service that partners with local stores.

So, when you put your zip code into Yummly’s database, the ingredients in the recipes you choose are automatically generated into a grocery list that is sorted by aisle for the store of your choosing. This speeds things up, should you choose not to have the items delivered.

Score!

There is also a coupon link that will pull up offers specific to the grocery store you’ve selected. It will then apply those savings directly to the order.

Pretty amazing, right?

Yummly also uses an algorithm to generate recipes based on your likes and dislikes, with the simple tap of a “yum” button. If you’re diet-conscious, the nutritional information for all of the recipes is included (calories, carbs, fat, and cholesterol).

If you’re using an app like My Fitness Pal, iTrackBites or Weight Watchers, this is a primo feature! Yummly is both an app and a website so you can browse and save recipes that are specifically tailored to your own personal tastes and preferences.

It even provides you with the opportunity to filter your recipes based on skill level and those that have videos, so it is perfect for those novice home cooks looking to learn and refine their skills in the kitchen.

One of the biggest drawbacks to Yummly is that there is no calendar-style meal plan. However, this may not be an issue for you if this isn’t a feature you are looking to have with your meal planning app.

The Yummly meal planning app is available on Google Play and iTunes.

And if you get stuck with what recipes to add to Yummly, then feel free to check out these articles we’ve put together:

  • 35 Healthy Chicken Recipes
  • 36 Great Quinoa Salad Recipes
  • 34 Crockpot Freezer Meals
  • 53 Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipes
  • 63 High Protein Breakfast Ideas
  • 56 Healthy Snack Ideas
  • 61 Great Breakfast Ideas

6. Allrecipes Dinner Spinner

Free

This unique meal planning app brings social media into the kitchen with its collection of over 50,000 recipes created by home chefs. You can even follow your favorites for inspiration!

Your feed is personalized – growing smarter with every recipe you save and make, and which cooks you follow. You can rate dishes as well. And, as with similar planning apps, you can search by keyword and cuisine – even dietary restrictions.

But for me, the standout feature with this app is the one that allows you to enter your zip code to find “on sale” items at local stores that are relevant to your recipe and makes meal planning easy.

Now that’s nifty!

The Allrecipes meal planning app is available for download on Google Play, iTunes, Kindle, and Windows Phone.

Note: This is not an “ad free” app, and there are currently no upgrades available to make it so.

​7. Pepper Plate

Free

Pepper Plate allows you to login using your Facebook account, and even share recipes that way, not to mention Twitter and email as well.

Like its competitors, Pepper Plate allows you to import and sort recipes, as well as automatically generate grocery lists. However, a COOK NOW feature is where Pepper Plate stands out. This tool allows the use of multiple timers (on your smartphone or tablet) for all of the recipes on your menu. So, there is no need to worry about overcooking the pasta while sautéing the chicken.

Pepper Plate is available for download on Google Play, iTunes, Amazon App Store, Windows Store, and Nook.

​8. Meal Planner Pro

Free

Save Time. Save Money. Eat Healthy.

That is the Meal Planner Pro tagline.

It encourages healthy eating and incorporates that into your weekly meal planning routine by first allowing you to set up profiles for every member of the family.

Furthermore, their database includes more than just dinner ideas. Their menu also includes healthy breakfast and lunch recipes as well. And that’s something you don’t get with most meal kit delivery services.

The ProScore System is the app’s equivalent to having your own nutritionist. ProScore highlights the good and bad nutritional values of each item and then assigns it a score of 1-100.

The site also offers personalized meal planning and support for things such as:

  • Diabetes (all types)
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Weight management and weight loss
  • Anemia
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Digestive Health
  • Gluten Intolerance

You can save your favorite recipes and put them directly onto your calendar for the week… even months!

This makes meal planning a snap! And when you’re creating your grocery list, you’ll be given images and nutrition information for all ingredients… even the warning labels, so you will know if it contains something you or a loved one can’t have.

​9. Plan to Eat

Free to try for 30 days, $4.95/month or $39/year after that

Perhaps the most basic app at first glance, Plan to Eat has a few surprises for health-conscious meal planners.

First and foremost, by simply bookmarking the Plan to Eat webpage, you are able to scour the likes of Pinterest or Delish and simply click the recipes you like to automatically add them to your meal plan.

Additionally, the user interface is extremely intuitive, making it a cinch to drag and drop items to populate your meal planner for the week. This is also super helpful if one person is trying to eat gluten-free, while also planning regular meals for kids at the same time.

Speaking of kids – if you bookmark the site on their personal devices as well, they are able to log in and see what’s planned for dinner. Older kids may even be able to get the meal started with the recipe right in front of them.

Do I hear allowance money?

You can also add notes to the planner if leftovers are on the agenda, which cuts back on doubling the ingredients in the shopping list.

The Staples List is a great place to add common, and often forgotten, items to your shopping list. Just click to add the staple to your weekly shopping list, without having to re-enter it time and again.

Got questions? No worries. Plan to Eat has top-notch customer service agents willing and eager to help.

This app is ideal for people who already have a pretty decently sized recipe collection or even for those who love to look around on the internet for new recipes. This is because it does not come with a preset recipe database.

The Plan to Eat app is available online, as well as via Google Play and iTunes.

10. Big Oven

Free, pro membership available for $1.99 per month, or $19.99 per year

Yes, this meal planning app offers more than 350,000 recipes to inspire you! And, yes, it offers a snapshot feature where you can take pics of family recipes, and Big Oven will upload them into your recipe collection for you.

You can comment on recipes and receive notification of feedback, and then create a grocery list that can be shared by other members of the family. These are all awesome features, but cooking with leftovers and controlling your portions is this app’s bread and butter, so to speak.

With Big Oven, simply choose up to 3 leftovers/ingredients and the app will tell you what you can create! For instance:

  1. London broil
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Mushrooms

I typed these in, and Big Oven suggested:

  1. Chili
  2. Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja
  3. Irish stew

There were other suggestions, but these three recipes utilized all three ingredients I typed in. Other recipes were just using one or two of the ingredients as a springboard to something else.

Either way, pretty cool.

Pretty cool.

11. Dealstomeals.com

2 weeks free, $4.95 per month after

Deals to Meals claims to be a one of a kind service! Touting itself as the only meal planning service online that bases its weekly meal plans around the best grocery deals in your area.

Basically, all of your meals will be planned around sale items, which will save you hundreds of dollars each month. The weekly meal planner provides you with one week’s worth of:

  • Main dishes
  • Side dishes
  • Desserts
  • Food storage recipes

The food storage specific recipes are perfect for those nights when you are short on time!

Meal planning doesn’t get much simpler. As for the shopping, you can elect to create your own grocery list… or have one generated for you.

Separate from the meal planning service, Deals to Meals offers an option to save up to 70% on groceries without using coupons.

Every week, you will be given a comparison breakdown of the major grocery stores’ deals to Costco, Sam’s Club, and Walmart. Then, Deals to Meals will tell you where the best deals are in your area to save you the most money; promising savings upwards of $100’s a month, all for just over $1 a week.

In fact, the company guarantees you save more than your membership rate, or they will refund you. Refund sounds like no-risk, and I like the sound of that!

WARNING: If you live outside the USA – this is not the app for you.

And now to sum it up…

Meal planning sites and apps are pretty much all over the place these days. And, quite honestly, they all offer many of the same features.

But if you want to build better healthy habits for your and your family, then it’s really a bit of trial and error when it comes to finding the one that best suits you.

I’ve tried my best to wrangle up some of the better ones…

Regardless of which you choose, you should be on the lookout for these things:

  1. Free, or free trial
  2. Menu/recipe variety
  3. Automatically generated grocery list
  4. Calendar sync
  5. Available as an app

Most of the ones I suggested are free, so I implore you to check them all out if your data plan allows. Not to mention, many are accessible on the web. So, there is really no excuse.

Meal planning works! You’ve just got to commit to it. And if you haven’t got the time or desire, let these sites and apps do it for you! Especially when so many of them are FREE!

​ Finally, if you are looking for an additional motivation to exercise and lose weight, try this app that will pay you for your weight loss efforts (up to $10,000).

Dr. Oz’s 3-Step Flat Belly Plan, Pt 1 (5:45)

Your Video is Loading

Dr. Oz teamed up with Flat Belly Diet author Liz Vaccariello, nutritional biochemist Dr. Shaw Talbott and 8 Minute Abs creator Jaime Brenkus to come up with this plan designed to tackle your belly fat without making you feel hungry.

Dr. Oz’s Flat Belly Plan

The Dr. Oz Flat Belly Plan was designed to flatten your belly with four key steps:

1. Shrink Fat Cells

A recent study found that those who ate three yogurts a day while dieting lost 81% more belly fat than people who didn’t eat yogurt. All study participants were directed to eat 500 calories less per day. As part of the Flat Belly Plan, you should eat about 6 ounces of low-fat Greek yogurt before every meal. Why? It’s thought that calcium can help stop fat from entering your cells, improve your body’s ability to break down fat and help your body carry out fat through your bowel movements.

2. Shed Excess Pounds With MUFAs

MUFAs, or monounsaturated fatty acids, are the cornerstone of the Flat Belly Plan. These are plant-based fats, so the easiest way to remember them is to look for healthy fats that aren’t from animal sources, such as avocados, nuts, seeds, oils and olives. A study done through the American Diabetic Association found that a diet rich in MUFAs worked to reduce belly fat.

As part of the Flat Belly Plan, you need to eat three MUFA meals a day.

The foundation of any MUFA meal has:

  • 3 ounces lean protein
  • 1 complex carb
  • Unlimited vegetables
  • 1 MUFA
  • Each meal should be 350 calories (or fewer)

Click here to print the MUFA Meals One-Sheet.

3. Reduce Inflammation
The next part of the plan aims to reduce inflammation. Belly fat has been linked to inflammation and elevated cortisol (the stress hormone). Belly fat is even thought to be “toxic” to your system as it releases chemicals into your body that wreak havoc on your appetite and the way your body metabolizes food. That’s why anti-inflammatory foods are thought to be effective in fighting belly fat and breaking the vicious cycle.

As part of the Flat Belly Plan, have an anti-inflammatory snack in the afternoon. Snacks should be rich in flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants that help curb inflammation. They’re the natural compounds that give berries and other fruits their vibrant color. Try a sliced yellow bell pepper with hummus or a bowl of mixed berries drizzled with dark chocolate.

4. Beat Bloat
Drink ginger iced tea with mint and lemon to reduce bloat! Ginger naturally aids digestion, mint helps to reduce gas, and lemon juice is rich in antioxidants. Follow the recipe below and sip on this Flat Belly Tea all day long:

Ingredients

3 bags of ginger tea

1 cup fresh mint, chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

2 cups of water

2 cups of ice

Directions

In a large pitcher (about 24 ounces), steep the ginger bags and chopped mint for 5-10 minutes. Strain mixture to remove bags and leaves. Add lemon juice. Stir and serve. Store in refrigerator, serve chilled and sip.

Controlling stress is also an important part of dieting and rebooting your body. Taming your stress results in reduced levels of cortisol, which has been linked to belly fat. Prevent your nerves from fraying with these tips and your body and your belly will thank you for it.

Mornings: Relora
Start the day off right. High cortisol levels in the morning makes breakfast more likely to be stored as belly fat and result in cravings for junk food throughout the day. Studies have shown that relora, a blend of two herbs called magnolo and phellodendron, can help reduce cortisol. It’s also calming, not drowsy, making it perfect for mornings.

Afternoons: Aromatherapy Inhaler
Sometimes you need a stress-reducing shortcut. You can trick your body into relaxing with an aromatherapy inhaler, which you can use the second you feel stressed. The brain quickly processes smells, which hit the amygdala, the area of your brain responsible for anxiety. Scents like eucalyptus, lavender and bergamot can help shut down stress.

Evenings: Tart Cherry Juice

A natural source of melatonin, which helps lower cortisol, tart cherry juice can help you achieve a good night’s sleep. Getting only 6 hours of sleep versus the recommended 8 hours means that you can have up to 50% more cortisol exposure – and that can lead to more sweet-tooth cravings and belly fat. Elevated cortisol also keeps you restless and alert when you don’t need to be, making it hard to fall asleep. Drink an 8-ounce glass in the morning and 2 hours before bed for sweet dreams. To get the full benefit, drink this juice at a scheduled time every day.

Dr. Oz is promoting a thirty-day flat belly diet. “In only 30 days, you can have the flat belly you’ve always dreamed of! That’s the promise made by Brett Hoebel, a weight-loss guru who’s designed a miracle formula for flat abs.”

Doesn’t it sound like every infomercial you’ve ever heard? With before and after photos of ex-models who’ve gained a few pounds and worked them off in thirty days? So now it works for everyone! You, yes you mr. oxygen dependent emphysema patient, can get a flat belly in thirty days! And you, lady who now weighs a thousand pounds because she’s trying to win some personal record, drop all that weight in thirty days! Not gonna happen.

So let’s change it to “healthy people being slightly healthier in thirty days.” Less catchy, but attainable.

Next we have the shopping list, which looks like the shopping list for every New York model. If you eat only these foods, you will definitely be dropping weight.

Shopping List

Protein

  1. Chicken
  2. Turkey
  3. Eggs

Complex Carbs

  1. Sweet Potato
  2. Brown Rice Cakes
  3. Oatmeal
  4. Leafy Greens (broccoli, spinach, asparagus, lettuce, kale, chard etc.)

Simple Carbs

  1. Apples
  2. Berries

Fat

  1. Raw Nuts & Nut Butter (almonds, cashews, walnuts, almond butter, peanut butter)

Bonus Food: Beans. Legumes are a great source of protein, carbs, good fats and fiber.

Then we start the day with an anti-bloat smoothie. But look at the ingredients. My shopping list didn’t include my fresh mint garnish! And my probiotic straws, where are my probiotic straws! (Oh, for crying out loud. Dip a regular straw in yogurt and call it probiotic.)

The meals are all from the “starve-u-R-us” recipe book. Try adding a bit of cinnamon to your one sweet potato. You might just forget you’re starving. But what is this? I need ten grams of glutamine and not just CLA but Tonalin CLA? Doggone it, now I’ve got to hit the all-night GNC to get my fat burning supplements.

And exercise? Where’s that component? Oh, I can do the five-minute fat burning workout three times a week and that will cover me. Of course, if that’s all I do, I’ll end up tearing something or hurting something by week two, but never mind that. Jump and dance.

The only way this plan will give you a flat belly in thirty days is to heat it up, with my new Hot Coals Oompa Loompa! (patent pending). Do all of the above, but add a ten-by ten foot bed of hot coals (recycled food logs from fair marketed renewable crops). Every day, twice a day, spend ten minutes on a bed of hot coals. There’s no instructional tape. You just do what comes naturally on a bed of hot coals, and watch those pounds literally melt away!

But one quick trip is less stressful and time-consuming than attempting to navigate the produce section and express lane multiple weeknights after work. And if you go with an organized grocery list and meal plan, you never have to stare into your fridge wondering, “What’s for dinner?” or resort to take-out.

To see just how easy-and delicious and healthy-it can be, use the grocery list and meal plan below. No crazy ingredients or complicated recipes here! And if you make the recipes when you have time on Sunday, you can toss together the rest of the week’s meals in minutes by combining staples you have on hand with leftovers.

The Secret To Weight-Loss Success

It’s not how much you eat that matters. It’s what you eat. This is an incredibly important concept taught by the doctors and dietitians at the Pritikin health resort.

For long-lasting weight-loss success, what guests at Pritikin eat are foods that deliver the most hunger-curbing satisfaction for every calorie consumed.

For the most part, foods with a lot of satisfaction per calorie are:

  • Naturally rich in fiber
  • Naturally high in water
  • Naturally low in calorie density (which means that your calorie intake, per bite, is low).

Foods That Shed Weight

Pritikin’s Shopping List For Weight Loss is full of these high-fiber, high-water, low-calorie-dense foods.

Unfortunately, U.S. marketers often sell us the exact opposite. A Sausage McMuffin, for example, has about 95 calories per bite (470 calories in total). As we all know, that one McMcMuffin rarely quells hunger. We could easily order another, and another. That’s what happens when your food is dense with calories. And we’re sadly aware of what happens to our waistlines as a result.

Delish!

It’s nice when food that is good for you also tastes good. The award-winning chefs at Pritikin make sure that’s always the case. Not only do they cook all meals at Pritikin, from breakfast to four-course dinners, they teach guests how to prepare these very same foods in their home kitchens.

And, oh, what they and other Pritikin foodies can create! A can of beans becomes Black Bean & Tomatillo Soup. Oatmeal gets transformed into Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal. Salmon becomes Slow-Roasted Salmon With Fennel and Citrus.

So go ahead! Give this Pritikin Shopping List For Weight Loss a try. And check out the many, many other tantalizing recipes on Pritikin’s website.

Health Vacation

Better yet, make your next vacation a health and weight-loss vacation at Pritikin. Discover for yourself how easy and delicious healthy living can be. And have a lot of fun doing it.

Most importantly, discover a new you. The Pritikin Program isn’t just about losing weight. It’s about losing everything else that may be weighing you down, like high blood pressure, high blood sugar, diabetes, and heart problems. It’s about becoming your best and happiest self.

The Truth About Counting Calories

There is a biological truth: When you eat fewer calories than your body burns, you lose weight. However, counting calories often leads to overeating! Lose Weight Without Counting Calories

More than 100 studies published over the past three decades in peer-reviewed journals have found that the Pritikin Program improves virtually every modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease, including hypertension, pre-diabetes, diabetes, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, chronic inflammation, and excess weight.

“Our primary mission is leading our guests back to health and vitality,” sums up Danine Fruge, MD, ABFP, Medical Director at the Pritikin Longevity Center.

“Give us two weeks, and we’ll give you new life.”
