1450 Calorie Meal Plan For Weight Loss

Meal plans for weight loss don’t have to suck. This 1450-calorie meal plan includes French toast, salads, and even ice cream! 

I am Noah, a dietitian and weight loss coach. I created this meal plan for my significant other, who is the average height and weight of a mid-twenties female looking to lose about 30 pounds. 

This meal plan includes four meals: one pre-workout snack and a high-protein ice cream before bed. 

This is week two of our couple’s weight loss plan. You can follow along weekly for the next 12-20 weeks. 

If you tried this 1450-calorie meal plan for weight loss, I want to hear how it went. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you liked and what could be improved upon. 

Meal Plan Outline:

  • Meal One: Whey Protein Shake With Water
  • Meal Two: High Volume, High Protein, Low Calorie French Toast 
  • Meal Three: Mediterranean Chicken Salad With Rice 
  • Meal Four: Fish (Tilapia, Salmon.) with potatoes, broccoli, and asparagus. 
  • Before Bed: Chocolate Casein Protein Ice Cream
  • Pre-workout: Mandarin Oranges

How to Meal Prep: 

To prepare this meal plan, cook the High Volume, High Protein, Low-Calorie French and make the Mediterranean Chicken Salad With Rice. I also prepped the baked potatoes, which left me with only having to cook my proteins and vegetables each night.

Who Is This Meal Plan For?

This 1450-calorie meal plan was made for an average-height 25- 35-year-old female who started at about 165 to 175 pounds and aimed to lose about 30 pounds.

Seeing that this plan is high in protein, it is made for a female who is lifting weights 3-6 times per week in addition to working and living.

Summary

Overall, this 1450-calorie meal plan was perfect. According to Sydni, it was tasty and filling. 

Compared to the week one meal plan, the portion sizes were bigger, and we felt satisfied. I would add that the prep work for this meal plan was more than the previous week.
