1 8-Week Guide to Healthy Eating

2 INTRODUCTION Welcome to your Guide to Healthy Eating We understand that life can get pretty hectic. Sometimes you barely have time to eat, let alone to eat balanced, healthy meals. We want to help, and in the Guide to Healthy Eating we ve planned and presented every detail of a simple meal plan that you can start now and see results fast. The Guide to Healthy Eating is quick and easy because we ve done all the work for you. We started with eight weeks of meal plans, designed by a team of registered dietitians and gourmet chefs so you know that your meals will be healthy and delicious. Every meal of the day, including snacks, has been carefully laid out; we ve even counted the calories so you don t have to. The recipes that you need are all included in the Guide, with directions that are clear and easy to follow. To top it off, we ve gone through each week of the plan and created a grocery list that makes shopping easy just follow the list and you ll always have exactly what you need at meal time. You ll notice that each week leaves one day open this is your day to choose your own meals, but don t use it as an excuse to binge. Remember your health, weight and fitness goals, and try to eat foods similar to those in the meal plan. Follow the Guide to Healthy Eating and you ll find balanced, healthy, delicious results in no time! Consult your physician before starting this or any other meal plan. If you are pregnant, diabetic, have a heart condition or have any other medical condition, do not undertake this or any dietary change without your physician s permission. 1

3 USING THE GROCERY LIST Portions Check this column to see at a glance how much of each item you ll need to prepare your meals throughout the day. Items marked with a m are for breakfasts, lunches, and snacks. The amounts shown are enough to SERVE ONE. Items marked with a q are for dinner. The dinner amounts will SERVE FOUR TO SIX comfortably. If you re cooking for one, it s easy to halve or quarter the recipe. If you end up with leftovers, you re welcome to eat them in place of one of your recommended meals, but remember to keep your portion sizes modest. If more than four are expected for dinner, the Grocery List makes it easy to decide which ingredients you ll need more of to alter your dinner recipes. Pantry Items to Check Before shopping each week, check to make sure you have enough of these essentials. They re common ingredients in many of the meals you ll be preparing, so if you re running short, you ll want to restock. Item Column This column lets you know conveniently and easily which foods you ll need during the upcoming week. You may substitute another food of choice at any time. Just take note of the calories allotted for a specific food or meal, and try to substitute within that calorie budget. Substitution also applies to fruits or vegetables, some of which may be out of season or simply unavailable.
