This monthly meal planner has saved my diet! Each day has a relatively balanced meal plan for Supper including portion size and nutritional information. On the same page there are shopping lists divided out per week and even per section of the grocery store which makes for SUPER SUPPER shopping! All of the recipes are based on a busy lifestyle and so normally take less than an hour to prepare and cook.
Because it's based on a busy lifestyle, sometimes the quick approach can lead to some not so healthy side dishes. I just substitute somethign healthier like a salad or some steamed veg on those days. Also, if you're cooking for just 2, it makes 4 servings so we have a home cooked lunch the next day!
Something as simple as bringing your lunch to work really helps in cutting out unnecessary calories daily as well as saving you money. Fast food and quick take out meals tend to have a lot of calories in them and it is very easy to overindulge. Pack a well balanced meal...a sandwich and fruit, last night's leftovers, soup and a salad etc. I am sure you won't miss eating out daily after you see the pounds start to drop off.9
