Despite the high caloric intake on this plan, it can still represent a portion control approach to dieting for those who have a high level of lean mass in their bodies and need to eat up to six times each day. Options are selected out of clean food options and distributed over the meals of the day. This may still translate to 0.5 pounds of weight loss per week for a muscular/overweight woman and one or more pounds for a muscular/overweight man.
The meal plan you are about to begin could be considered as a "lifestyle" diet for the big-boned as it supplies recipes for every day eating in everyday circumstances. For that reason, you will find a reasonable balance of fresh, whole foods, including meats, healthy fats, fish, dairy, fruits, vegetables, and even bread, as your choices are not restricted here but only the volume of food is limited to your 2200 cal. daily budget.
If you are sensitive to gluten, have vegetarian or vegan preferences, or have some other food allergy or aversion, check with your health coach about substitutions. But we've made it easy for you to make substitutions using the More Meals tab (available in a full desktop view). You can substitute meals from the More Meals tab for any meal you see on a particular day, that you don't care for.
If you do not experience any weight loss on that many calories, you can always check with your coach and you will be switched to a more appropriate short term diet or longer-term lifestyle plan, committing to healthy eating and regular physical activity.
