You should always seek the advice of your doctor before changing your diet significantly like our meal plans. If you want to lose weight fewer calories is better to a point. You don’t want to be hungry either. Our plans utilize snacks to make sure you are not hungry throughout the day. We recommend starting with a 3 meal and 2 snack plan for your first program. If you find you are hungry, add a snack, too much food, drop a snack on your next program.
