Create a weekly food plan for a diet by generating one through websites such as Eat This Much, using or customizing premade plans through sites such as Whole Food Markets, or creating your own. Creating your own requires researching healthy meal plans and taking stock of available food at home.
The Eat This Much website simplifies creating a diet plan by prompting users to input how many meals they wish to eat per day and how many calories they wish to consume. Users can also input preferred or specialized diets. After inputting all information, click the Generate button to create a daily diet. Users can click the arrows by each meal name to have it generate a new food for that meal, and users can register for a free account to have it generate weekly diet plans.
Websites such as Whole Foods Market have themed, premade weekly diet plans such as "Great Grains" and "Healthy Comfort Food favorites." Users can abide by this completely or customize the premade plans as desired.
Users can also create their own meal plans by taking stock of existing foods in pantry, refrigerator, and freezer and researching healthy meals to create a custom weekly food plan. It is important for users to include representations from all food groups in their plan and to also honestly account for snacks and planned meals from restaurants. Users should also account for calories in all beverages so they do not underestimate their caloric intake.
