What is meal planning?
Meal planning involves going to the grocery store and actively selecting natural, healthy ingredients to create meals and dishes. It can have a huge impact on sticking with dietary changes and achieving weight loss.* If you prepare meals for your family, involve your kids in the planning as well. This will help them to get excited about the healthy foods you are cooking, and they will be more willing to try them. At MediMax Obesity Institute, we recommend a diet with moderate protein. Cutting out refined carbohydrates is also an essential strategy for weight loss. Refined carbs consist of sugars and starches that don’t exist in nature. Some of the foods that are high in refined carbohydrates include bread, cookies, corn chips, pizza, pastas and chocolate. Meal planning is important, but using the healthiest ingredients is essential.
Meal planning at MediMax Obesity Institute
We provide dietician-mapped meal planning, so you can benefit from expert advice. Personal trainers and others offer meal planning advice, but they don’t have the full expertise of licensed dietitian. We also plug our patients in with online support tools, including the smartphone apps Baritastic and MyFitnessPal. Both apps will help you monitor your health and fitness. And when you get a custom weight loss program from MediMax, we don’t send you off to lose weight on your own. We have plenty of support systems set up to help you along the way. We have local resources for group support, including group classes. These classes are meant to educate you on weight loss and provide you with the support you need. These programs are community-based, so you won’t have to travel far and you’ll get help from people near you.
