I recently finished creating a meal plan for a body builder client of mine simply looking to make sure they're eating enough from day-to-day. This client normally doesn't eat as much as they're supposed to, so a structured meal plan was in order, along with a list of substitutes, just in case they're not in the mood for whatever's listed on the plan that day.
In any case, I myself don't follow a meal plan. I simply eat when I'm hungry, stop when I'm full. So for some people, meal plans are too restrictive. For others, however, they're necessary, especially for those who don't know how to eat well, are eating too much, or are not eating enough.
I'm going to give you some tips on how to structure your own meal plan if you're the type who needs one. Keep in mind that it is outside of my scope of practice to create a meal plan for treatment purposes, such as someone needing a plan for diabetes. My meal planning services are simply for lifestyle purposes.
