Types of meal plans
Our meal plans are designed around a selection of popular categories to help you design a strategy around your goals and lifestyle
Meal Plan Types Definitions
Our high nutrition plans focus on minimally processed and nutrient dense meals that are rich in vitamins and minerals whilst avoiding saturated fat, added sugars and sodium. We're talking fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, fish and lean meat.
Quick & Easy
These plans consist of uncomplicated meals that require little planning, are quick to prepare, will hit your macro targets and are really tasty.
These meal plans restrict your fats whilst dialing up lean meats, beans, grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy. Lowering your fat intake can help with reducing the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol levels in your diet, which in turn can help decrease heart disease risk.
Performance (Slow Burn Carbs)
These plans are designed for anyone who wants to maintain or lose weight while optimizing their energy. Meals are centered around high fiber, nutritious and complex carbs that help slow digestion, sustain energy and stabilize blood sugar levels.
Our flexitarian plans follow a semi-vegetarian diet that are centered on plant foods with limited or occasional inclusion of meat and animal products. Meals with meat are only included on a couple of days in the plan.
Our ketogenic meal plans are high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diets that forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. The meals focus on high fat, low carb foods like eggs, meats, dairy, and low carb vegetables whilst limiting highly processed foods and trans fats.
Our Mediterranean meal plans focus on plant-based foods and healthy fats. Research shows that diets that focus mostly on veggies, fruits, whole grains and olive oil can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions.
Our carb conscious plans focus on proteins and fats whilst limiting the proportion of daily calories you get from carbs. They prioritize low glycemic index (GI) carbs that are slowly absorbed and avoid rapid increases in blood sugar levels.
Build (High Protein)
The goal of these meal plans is to eat more protein-packed foods, which is critical for muscle growth and tissue repair as well as a range of other organ and hormone functions. Eating sufficient levels of protein is also necessary for avoiding muscle atrophy as we age.
There are many types of vegetarian diets that exclude animal and meat products to varying degrees. Our meal plans focus on plant based food and include egg and diary products to ensure you get sufficient nutrients such as protein, iron, calcium, zinc and vitamin B12.
Our paleo meal plans center on the idea that we should eat like our ancestors to promote good health and avoid chronic disease. The meals in this plan are limited to foods that could be hunted, fished, or gathered in prehistoric times such as meats, fish, and vegetables and avoids foods that stem from modern production such as grains, legumes and dairy.
These meal plans follow the Whole 30 elimination diet that encourages you to cut out alcohol, sugar, grains, legumes, dairy, and additives from your diet which can cause inflammation and food allergies.
Definitions for Food Sensitivities
It can often be difficult to determine whether you have a food allergy or food intolerance because the signs and symptoms overlap. And to make matters worse, some people are sensitive to more than one food type which makes it harder to isolate the triggers. If you suspect you are experiencing food sensitivities then you can have a test (blood, hair or skin test) or try an elimination diet which is the easiest and cheapest way. In Part Two we will look at how to implement an elimination diet to identify which foods you might be sensitive to.
