When you’re looking for ideas on how to structure your meals to reach a certain goal (lose weight, gain muscle, or even just maintain where you are) many articles often give you guidelines and lost of options on how to get there, but lack solid insights on how to do what’s recommended with factual numbers and realistic recommendations around them.

This is why I was pleased to see Women’s Health Magazine’s New Years Meal Plan that maps out realistic options for eating plans that have meals and snack for 1500 calories a day.

What meal plans, posts, or tools have you found helpful in visualizing and planning for the caloric intake you aim to have each day? Share your ideas in the comments below.

Thanks for posting this, it’s very helpful to see what 1500 calories looks like, along with actual food choices that seems easy to implement. Although I must say, I still can’t do plain yogurt, so I’ll have to substitute a flavored one.

I agree that the food choices is super helpful and it’s one of the few I’ve seen that outlines so many options.

As for plain yogurt, adding some cinnamon and a low-sugar cereal into the mix usually helps take the edge off.
