One-Week Quick Start Plan

Struggling to stick to that new diet? Need some more inspiration? Here’s my New Year present to you: a quick-start weight-loss plan from my Belly Fat ebook . Enjoy. And remember these are BOGOF at the moment too – see here.

Note this plan is not calorie-counted or measured in any way so you can mix and match meals or swop anything you like; it’s simply here to give you a place to start if you need one. All the meals are taken from the ‘Meals To Enjoy’ section of the book and I have tried to make the meal plan realistic to fit in with daily life. It’s probably not perfect, but it’s good enough – and that’s how your attitude should be. You don’t have to let it take over your life – and you should enjoy your food.

I have assumed you are like me and work Mon-Fri, don’t have much time in the morning, are too tired to cook on Friday night after a long week and have a family roast on Sundays. I have also assumed it’s easier to take leftovers to work for lunch the next day.
