Everyone of my weight loss clients who are having incredible weight loss, all have this in common…they meal plan.
They know what they are going to eat 24 hours in advance.

how to write a meal plan

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”

This is one of my favourite quotes by a Canadian hockey player (and heartthrob) Wayne Gretzky.

And it applies to weight loss too!

Everyone of my weight loss clients who are having incredible weight loss, all have this in common…they meal plan.

They know what they are going to eat 24 hours in advance.

It’s like inputting an address into your car GPS …it saves you time and energy driving around aimlessly trying to find it on your own.

1. There are no rules! You get to decide what your meal plan looks like. This is not a celebrity or famous person’s ‘plan’ – it is YOURS! You get to choose the food that will nourish your body AND help you lose weight. What if you believed you were doing it right? I bet that would make you feel more successful and more likely to continue doing it!

2. Decide you CAN have fun creating your meal plan! Inside Joy Club, we have created Saturday mornings as a FUN environment for women to jump on a Zoom call (in our ball caps and sweats) and write our meal plans for the week, together. Throughout the call, we swap recipes and learn other menu ideas and best practises from a professional chef who has lost her goal weight using the Joy Club tools. Meal planning does not need to be dreary or hard. IT CAN BE FUN…if you let it!

3. Use your plan FOR you rather than against you. Watch that you don’t get caught in the world of “all or nothing”. Creating and following a meal plan once a week is better than zero. Watch if your brain tells you it’s not perfect (7/7 being such). What if you got really good at following your meal plan one day a week and then added a second and then a third? Where would you be in one month or two? Much further ahead than if you thought you needed to do it ALL perfectly right now… which makes you feel overwhelmed and do nothing.

4. Meet yourself where you are at. If you are a woman who eats lunch out 5 days aweek…what if you brought your lunch one day a week instead? Making small, incremental changes is the foundation of making lifetime changes.

5. Sustainable habit changes are key to creating a new relationship with food. Make your meal plan attainable and ‘doable’. There is no sense creating a plan that you know, as you write it, that you are not going to follow.

Become a woman who sets herself up for success!

You can do this…I know you can!
