Diet Plan

Diet plans are subject to the individual’s specific needs. You should always consult with your doctor before beginning any significant dietary change. That being said, there are some simple ground rules that make for a quality weight-loss-related diet plan. If your goal is to just lose weight (meaning you’re not focused on gaining muscle right now), then you’ll want to eat in a calorie deficit (burn off more than you eat). If your goal is to lose weight and gain muscle, you’ll actually want to do the opposite. You’ll want to eat more, not less because your muscles need the extra nutrients to grow and develop.
Some foods to avoid are:
  • Alcohol
  • Processed sugar
  • High fat/high cholesterol foods like burgers/steaks
  • Fast food
Some foods to increase in your diet include:
  • Protein sources (fish, eggs, chicken, beans, lentils)
  • Healthy fats (avocado, olive oil)
  • Fresh fruits and vegetable


Similar to the diet section, the exercises you do will depend on your personal goals for your weight loss journey. The ideal exercise combination includes a mix of cardio, stretching, and weightlifting.
However, not everyone wants to do such exercises so you’ll have to test out different programs to see what you enjoy, can stick with, and works best for your body. Some options to try out include:
  • Pilates
  • Weightlifting
  • Yoga
  • HIIT or CrossFit

Tips to Lose

Losing weight comes down to a few key factors, but before we get to those, we want to tell you a few things that you should keep in the back of your mind on your journey:
  • Everyone’s journey is different
  • You don’t have to do the workout programs your friends are doing
  • Diet pills don’t work
  • Don’t push yourself to the point of injury
  • The number on the scale doesn’t matter
  • Muscle weighs more than fat
That being said, here are a few tips to keep you on the right track throughout your journey!
  • Track your progress using a measuring tape. Wrap the tape around each arm, your chest, waist, hips, and thighs. This is a much more efficient way to track your progress than watching the scale.
  • Speaking of the scale, don’t use it more than once/month. At most. It’ll only get in your way.
  • Have someone to hold you accountable for your choices. We don’t mean someone to bully you along the way, but someone to check in on you and ensure you’re staying on track.
  • Don’t limit yourself. Eat what you enjoy but eat it in moderation and swap for healthier alternatives when you can!
Weight loss is not as intimidating as it seems. It’s important to be sure you’re doing it for the right reasons and in the correct way. You want long-term results for all of your hard work!
