It can be hard to know where to begin when you've decided you want to shed some weight. To put it simply, you probably already know you should eat what you know to be healthy foods, which is totally true, but there are many other things to consider when preparing yourself for a diet that will help you lose weight.
A weight-loss plan is very personal to you, so while we've put together an example of a week of meals that help you lose some pounds, it should serve as inspiration. Your first step should be to figure out what works for you and your body, and the best way to do that is to speak with a nutritionist, who can take a look at your current weight and lifestyle and craft a plan that is best suited for your goals.
What's important to remember if you're starting a new diet is to make sure you're eating enough food every day so that you're losing weight at a healthy rate. Keep reading for seven days' worth of healthy meals, and if you're on a special diet like vegan or WW, we've got meal plans for you as well.
