Our meal plan program

Elizabeth

We do not offer a diet but a rational meal plan, which should not be considered a temporary measure but a way of life.

Our meal plan is based on the classic Mediterranean diet (recognized as the healthiest in the world as it extends life expectancy and fights obesity, heart, and vascular diseases), as well as the latest “MyPyramid” nutrition pyramid, developed by the Harvard School of Health (it emphasizes the importance of physical activity, a healthy lifestyle, and balanced eating).

The meal plan is based on 3 core principles:

  1. It contains lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, and nuts. They are fibre-rich, keep you full longer, and nourish your body.
  2. We replace heavy fats with some that are easier to digest: fish, olive oil, and avocado.
  3. Our meal plans suggest fish and poultry at least twice a week. We also customize meal plans for vegans, vegetarians, and people with allergies. 

Main foods 

  • The basis of the Mediterranean diet is plant-based products: vegetables, fruits, beans, and grains.
  • Olive oil is the primary source of fats: It is used both for seasoning salads and deep-frying.
  • As the Mediterranean Sea is generous for gifts, people living in the nearby countries eat a lot of fish and seafood.
  • Fragrance-rich coloured and flavoured spices and herbs are widely used: Saffron, garlic, marjoram, rosemary, and basil in Italy or cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, chillies, and paprika in Morocco.

Products consumed in moderation 

  • You won’t see red meat and poultry that often in the meal plan.
  • Fat cheese, eggs, and yoghurt are consumed in moderation.
  • The Mediterranean diet allows you to enjoy your wine regularly but no more than 1-2 glasses per day.

Products you should minimize

  • Overly processed foods: candies, sausages, manufactured sauces, prepacked foods. The more you cook by yourself, the better.
  • Soft drinks. Drink clear water instead, or have a glass of dry red wine occasionally.
  • Added sugar. You should choose fresh fruits and berries as your source of sweetness if you want to lose weight faster.

    Hi, I have paid for a meal plan, but the app keeps saying that the meal plan expired and to update start date, but it won't change. How can I update the start date for the meal plan and get it to show me the plan?
