A few weeks back my mom asked me to come up with a diet for her.
Diet?! That's a word that I refuse to use.
I don't do diets. I don't believe in diets. I hate diets.
I trust in healthy eating. Portion control. Listening to your body.
Through my journey here, I've come to realize that words like... diet and healthy vary from one person to another, and often with dramatic differences. So, let me tell you what to expect!
The 'Get Forking Skinny Meal Plan' will last for six weeks and will include three meals a day (each at 300-500 calories) and three snack options (each at 100 calories.) I will be providing weekly recipes, a shopping list, and of course the weeks 'meal plan'.
The breakfasts and lunches on the plan and shopping list will be portioned to serve one adult. Where as each dinner will be to accommodate a family of four. So, if you have more or less people involved then you will need to adjust things accordingly from what I provide.
The plan will be somewhat loose and will leave wiggle room for those that want/need more or less calories. So feel free to adjust it accordingly. As I said, I don't believe in diets. This isn't a diet. It's a meal plan.
This meal plan is intended for those that want to take a step in the right direction. Whether you're trying to lose weight, maintain your current weight, or just looking to eat more healthy.
I will be posting the weekly meal plan here with links to the printable recipes, shopping list, and meal plan, but you can also sign up for the newsletter to stay up to date with the latest on the plan!
My mom is going to be following the 'Get Forking Skinny Meal Plan' at 1200 calories a day, with the hopes that she will be able to shed some excess weight. For my mom, 1200 calories a day is what she needs in order to lose weight given her current weight, height, age and level of activity.
She will be checking in once a week to let us all know how she's feeling, if she's lost weight (if so how much), what she liked, what she didn't like, etc. Feel free to support her, support each other and share helpful words of confidence!
As I told my mom, I can't and won't guarantee to anyone that you'll lose weight by following the meal plan. And anyone intending to change their diet should always be sure and consult their doctor first!
