How to Create a Custom Meal Plan

Though it is good to go online and get an already made diet plan, in fact, I get requests from readers and friends to help them make a meal plan and I love the feeling that I can be of help to so many people. However, it is not always easy to develop a diet plan for you when there is no way I can ascertain how you feel today and what you are in the mood of eating.

In three simple steps, I will try to give you a basic overview of how to come up with a simple meal plan that will meet your need. Here are the basics:

  1. Get to know what you are supposed to eat at every meal

Every meal has a combination of different food substances and you need to identify what each one of them brings contains. You have proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fruits, protein snacks, whole grains, leafy greens and enhancers.

  1. Get the details of each portion and their calories

Proteins: You should go for protein foods that have low fat contents and controlled calories.

Protein snacks: It is important to boost your energy levels and keep hunger at bay in between meals. Protein snacks are not as heavy as whole protein meals.

Whole grains: Apart from being a very rich source of carbohydrates, whole grains also contains fiber and mineral salts that are also really needed by the body.

Fruits: Apart from providing the much needed calories, you need fruits to keep up with the need of vitamins and vital minerals. It is also vital that you go for fresh fruits and that you find a way to incorporate them as much as possible into main meals.

Free food: There are some foods that are have negligible calories and you can use them in your meal.

Enhancers: These are sweets and fats that add taste and flavor to food. Though some of them are fruits and vegetables, their calories come from their fats.

Vegetables: I love them because they are so low in calories that you can almost eat as much as possible. Avoid starchy vegetables and check caloric contents if you have to get eat them.

  1. Go for the plan

Now that you have an overview of meals, it is time to jump right into it and develop your own meal plans based on your needs and preferences.

Many people in life entertain many possibilities but not really committed to making any of them a reality. They want the best outcome, but they don’t want to do the work that is needed to achieve this. Most people won't fully commit and therefore achieve poor results and wonder why. The difference between people who achieve great success in the main areas of their lives compared to the people who don’t is the degree to how much they commit to themselves and their dreams.

So many people think they aren't where they want to be, because they don't have the talent to do so, they aren't as "lucky" as others. In all honesty it takes about 10% talent to achieve something great, the other 90% is based on how much heart you have. How much you are willing to work when no one else is watching. Putting all you have into your ambitions, and never cashing out early. This is what separates you from the rest.

Failure is a word that can easily be taken so many different ways. It is a word that can transition from context to content, and in reality; it holds a different meaning to all of us. In many cases and in many instances the word “failure” is perceived with a negative characterization.
