When holiday parties and festivities come around, it’s hard to stay on track with clean-eating intentions. It is possible, though, to reach your weight-loss goals this holiday season! All you need is a holiday low-calorie meal plan to eat in between work parties and family gatherings.

This 1-week holiday meal plan allows you to enjoy your favorite holiday foods without packing on the pounds. We’ve kept the calories between 1,400 to 1,600 a day. For the average healthy adult, this is the correct range of calories to eat for weight loss. Check out our guide to determine how many calories you should be eating for weight loss.

Keep in mind that most of these recipes make more than one serving, so we’ve planned to use the leftovers to make sure you don’t waste any food! If you’re cooking for more than one person, you may want to double up the recipes.
