4 Proven Meal Plans For Weight Loss
Considering making a health change? Want to find a proven meal plan for weight loss? There’s no time like the present!
As a healthy meal delivery service here in St. Louis, the success of our business is measured only by the success of our customers. It’s in our best interest, then, to specialize in meals that are proven to help our customers lose weight and reach their health goals...and that’s exactly what we do.
In this blog, we’ll look at four of the main diet plans in which we specialize: the Keto Diet, the Diabetic Diet, the 5 Day Diet, and the 30 Day Diet. You’ll get an overview of each one so that you walk away with a better understanding of some powerful options and how they can help you meet your goals.
Meal Plans for Weight Loss: The Keto Diet
At this point in the diet’s popularity, you’ve probably heard of the Ketogenic (Keto) diet. Maybe you’ve even heard of the popular Keto diet treat, ‘fat bombs’ ? What, exactly, is the Keto diet? While we’ve written many articles about it on this blog (‘How to to Understand the Keto Diet’ would be a great place to start), this is the Keto Diet in a nutshell: it’s a specific diet, initially created to control the symptoms of epilepsy, that enacts a specific metabolic process (Ketosis) in the body that helps weight loss.
The Keto Diet isn’t as simple as eating only certain food groups, however: to switch on the metabolic process that leads to weight loss, it’s important to closely follow the diet. Because it can be a bit complex to follow (and time-consuming), Pure Plates here in St. Louis offers a variety of different delicious Keto meals that make following the Ketogenic path to weight loss a breeze. Nutritious but delicious options we offer include Cashew Butter Logs, Beef Tenderloin Steak, a variety of tasty chicken dishes, Cherry Cacao Bars, and much more.
The Keto Diet has made a major difference in the lives of so many of our customers — and we truly love to hear all the positive feedback, like this review:
“I was overweight, had never been in a gym and overall very unhealthy. it was time to do something about it. I heard about pure plates through a google search. When i started pure plates in early may i weighed 300 pounds. My goal was to lose 75 pounds by Halloween and 100 by Christmas. today, 9/6 I weigh 217 pounds.”
Meal Plans for Weight Loss: The Diabetic Diet
Do you have diabetes? If you do, you may be looking into the well-evidenced method of changing your diet to manage diabetes. While it’s good news that changing your diet can help your health improve, there’s another silver lining here: diabetic diets can actually help you lose weight. How?
Diabetic diets are well-balanced: typically, they consist of lots of fresh veggies, whole-food carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein. Diabetic diets help you lose weight in two major ways: they cut the calories (that’s a given) and they are full of fiber. Fiber can be hugely beneficial in helping you to lose weight. How? Fiber is, often, significantly lower in calories — which means you can eat more with less impact on your weight. Even better? Fiber slows down the way in which those calories are processed — which helps you avoid sugar crashes and keeps you feeling full longer. You can read more about how diabetic diets help you lose weight and better manage your condition here.
Though diabetic diets can be very helpful for those who are managing diabetes, they can also add stress to an already full plate. At Pure Plates, we offer diabetic-friendly meal plans that help you ensure you have easy access to the nutrient-rich (and delicious) meals you need. Yummy meal options for Diabetic diets that we offer here in St. Louis include Street Pork Tacos, Steak and Eggs Breakfast, Sweet Chili Chicken Bowl, and much more.
Our customers tell us, time and time again, just how big of an impact Diabetic meal plans are not just on Diabetes but on overall weight and health as well:
“I started at 260 pounds 6 months ago. today i'm 198 lbs and i'm losing 3-5 lbs a week. not only that but my diabetes is completely under control. last summer my a1c was 11.4 and now it's normal. thank you pure plates you have given me a whole new life!”
Meal Plans for Weight Loss: The 5 Day Diet
If you want to get a jumpstart into changing your health for the better, we offer 5 day diets that help give you the nudge you need to finally make the change. You can order for one week, or every week. Our 5 day diets offer two tiers of calories: 1300 and 1500 meal plans. By lowering your caloric intake, and increasing your nutrient intake, you can hit the ‘reset’ button and make big strides toward sustained weight loss and improved health (you can read more about 5 Day Diet Plans and weight loss here).
Prepping calorie-reduced meals that you actually enjoy eating can mean considerable work - and this leads many folks to just stop trying. If you’re trying to change your diet and exercise at once, you may simply lack the time to do both effectively. Our 5 Day diet plans are designed to give you the boost you need to make sustained changes to your health a reality. Delicious options that we offer at Pure Plates include Carolina Gold Chicken, Breakfast Quesadilla, Rosemary Chicken Salad, and much more.
Reviews from our 5 day diet plans demonstrate just how these plans can help people save time and focus on other areas of life:
“It gives us more free time to do things, we don't have to think about it, we know we've got quality food which we want to feed to our kids as well and teach them how to eat healthy.”
Following a steady and nutrient-rich diet for a sustained amount of time can be transformative — and also incredibly difficult if you’re the one doing all the planning, prepping, cooking, and cleanup! Our 30 Day Diets are designed to take the stress out and make weight loss easy. By choosing a 30 Day diet, you have a plan in place, you have a measurable period of time to follow, and you can see the progress you make in that time.
These diet plans come in two tiers of calories (as with our 5 day diets) and you get to choose from a delicious array of healthy options that are planned specifically to support your weight loss and health goals. Some examples of meal choices from our 30 day meal plan are similar to options from our 5 day meal plans and include Asian Chicken Salads, Blueberry Flax Muffins, Egg Frittata Bites, Coconut Fudge Bars, and much more.

“I lost 22.9 lbs in 30 days with pure plates! The meals kept my energy up and that really let me focus on my fitness goals!”
