1,500 Calorie Meal Plan

In theory, weight loss is easy. If you consume fewer calories than you burn, your body taps into its stored energy supply and you lose weight. It sounds simple, but in practice it’s a lot more complicated. Calories hide in places you don’t expect them. Processed foods are packed with empty calories that add flavor with no nutritional value. We end up consuming too much added sugar, too many trans fats, and not enough essential vitamins and minerals.

Learning how to eat right takes time. In order to meet your personal nutritional needs, you need to eat clean, include superfoods in your diet, and eliminate processed ingredients like refined sugar and flour.

SkinnyMs. has assembled a three-day meal plan to help you kick-start this learning process. This 1500 Calorie Meal Plan includes rich, healthy foods that keep you full. You’ll see that clean eating isn’t just good for you – it’s also tasty and satisfying.
