Meal plans to lose weight & keep it off

A meal plan is a helpful tool for weight loss as it helps you plan your week of eating.

WW gives your the full picture of your weight loss and wellness

In theory, losing weight is really simple. All you have to do is eat less and move more, right? But, as we all know, in practice it’s not that easy.

To get the weight loss results you want, you need to see how all aspects of your life—the quality of the sleep you’re getting, the amount of activity you’re fitting in, and how you think about yourself and this journey—affect the choices you make, including what you eat.

Our myWW+ program takes a look at your overall lifestyle and goals and builds a complete wellness plan, featuring our award-winning weight-management system. When you’ve got a plan in place, everything, including losing weight, is easier.

The myWW+ program matches you with the food plan that’s right for you, where all foods are on the menu and you can eat what you love! Plus, you’ll get a list of ZeroPoint™ foods that you don’t need to worry about weighing or tracking.

SmartPoints make healthy eating simple. SmartPoints® values are numbers we assign to foods to help make deciding what to eat simpler. You have a personalised SmartPoints budget and you get to decide how you want to spend it. Plus, each week, we have weeklies, extra SmartPoints you can spend when you want them. As long as you stay within your budget, you’ll be on the right track!

Meal planning tips

Planning our meals and snacks in advance is an effective strategy to help you on your weight loss journey because it reduces our need for in-the-moment decision making.

Spending 15 minutes to plan out your meals for the week, will not only help you stay inspired and focused on your eating habits, but it also minimises the challenge of thinking about what to have for lunch or dinner each day.

Weekends are ideal for meal prepping and planning – with the extra time, you can prep, shop and cook in one go. Writing your plan down can help cement your intention and stay on track. Place your plan somewhere easily accessible. The fridge door is a good spot because it’s around eye-level and usually in a prominent position in the kitchen.

Don't forget to keep things flexible! We all know sometimes things change and you may not get the chance to eat what you had planned but that's ok too! Meal plans whether for weight loss or not don't have to the be fixed and ridged.
