Kick-start your WEIGHT LOSS immediately – 5-day meal plan


Healthy eating 5

Want to lose weight but don’t know where to start? Here’s a 5-day meal plan to get you going on the right track.

Note: this plan assumes that you are not allergic to anything, and also that you are hydrating properly (three litres per day) and taking regular exercise (at least three times per week).

This is a three meal per day plan. Snacking is not necessary, only do so if you feel desperate!

Day 1:

On day 1 we will take a 24-hour fast to get your body in gear for the week.

Intermittent fasting is all the rage in the weight-loss world right now, and for good reason. It makes you leaner, healthier and may help you live longer.

So skip breakfast and lunch and only eat dinner on this day.

Make sure it’s a normal dinner, not one that’s big enough to “make up” for the two meals you skipped!


Water, unsweetened black coffee, or unsweetened black tea (any variety) as you please all day.

When you feel hungry, drink something. When you feel like you can’t make it to dinner, remember all the people throughout history who have gone weeks without food.

For dinner, eat this:

  • 4 x cups of roasted, seasoned vegetables (DON’T cover them in cheese sauce, or mayo! A sprinkling of seasoned salt, and some garlic is enough)
  • 1 x grilled chicken breast fillet seasoned with your favourite spices
