How to Create a Successful Meal Plan

Are you trying to lose weight or simply become more fit? No matter your goals, investing in personal training and a nutrition coach can have enormous benefits. 

Staying in good health and shape requires that you engage in a regular workout routine, but that’s not all. Talk to any fitness expert or nutrition coach and they will tell you that meal planning is an essential part of weight loss success.

At Jensen Fitness, we offer a wide range of health and wellness services to our clients across Calgary and other cities including: 

  • Online personal training
  • Nutrition coach
  • Tailored weight loss and fitness diet plans

Whatever your fitness and weight loss goals, our team of personal trainers can help you achieve them in a realistic and safe way that yields long-term, incredible results.


How to Develop a Customized Meal Plan

Though following low-calorie diets may result in rapid weight loss in the short term, slow and steady wins the weight loss race. A healthy weight is all about balancing food intake with physical activity and making small changes in your fitness diet as well as your personal training regimen.

Talking to a registered nutrition coach is a great first step to developing a customized meal plan or fitness diet that incorporates all your unique needs. Working with such a professional can help you:

1. Identify Problem Areas

Every client’s situation is unique and so the approach to weight loss and personal training depends heavily on the individual. The first step in developing a successful fitness diet is to identify what’s going on.

Are you doing something that’s making weight gain more likely?

Some of these behaviors include:

  • Emotional eating
  • Eating a lot of meals away from home
  • Skipping meals
  • Taking big portions
  • Eating too many foods/beverages with added sugars and solid fats
  • Munching all day on high-calories
  • Consuming too much alcohol
  • Frequently drinking high-calorie coffee drinks, sodas or fruit juice
  • Eating in front of the TV or your mobile device

2. Make Changes

Ultimately, the best way to lose weight is to change the habits that are causing the extra weight. For the best weight loss results, pick one habit at a time.

FOR EXAMPLE: Try limiting sweets and treats or cutting out fried foods completely. Replace those old habits with new, better ones including trying fruit or veggie snacks or a new exercise class.

Investing in personal training is a great way to keep yourself accountable to your weight loss and fitness goals.  At Jensen Fitness, our nutrition coaches can not only create customized meal plans but so help you monitor your meals to ensure you follow the necessary lifestyle changes to see long-lasting, dramatic results.


3. Stay on Track

If you want to achieve your weight loss goals, enlisting the help of a nutrition coach to track your food intake and conduct regular weigh-ins are key to achieving your goals.
