Meal Plans Q & A

What is involved in meal plans? 

Because many people lead busy lives, it becomes easier and more convenient to order out or visit the local fast-food drive-thru. 

However, if you’re looking to lose excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight, it’s important that you know exactly how many calories you’re putting into your body throughout the day. To accomplish this, the team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss works with you on meal plans that you prepare in advance.

Based on your needs, your provider recommends one day a week where you prepare all of your meals for the days ahead. For instance, you take time on a Sunday to make and package the meals you plan to eat for the rest of the week.


How do I plan my meals?

Your NuvidaRx Weight Loss provider focuses on three key areas to help you create nutritious meals to help you lose excess weight and maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI): hydration, micronutrients, and macronutrients.


The chemical reactions that occur when your body burns fat require water. When you aren’t drinking enough water throughout the day, you may find it increasingly difficult to lose weight effectively.

The NuvidaRx Weight Loss team recommends filling up your refrigerator with small bottles of water and taking one with you wherever you go.

Micronutrients (micros)

Micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals your body needs to break down fat for energy, such as vitamins B1, B6, B12, and C.

If you’re not getting enough micronutrients in your daily diet, your provider may recommend over-the-counter supplements or lipotropic injections that contain substances that promote effective fat burning.

Macronutrients (macros)

Macronutrients are the three primary components of food: fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Each macronutrient contains a certain number of calories per gram.

Based on your health and weight-loss goals, your provider can help you calculate your needed macros for proper meal planning. 

You may also benefit from local meal preparation services that help you create weekly meals for a fee. Many people have found weight-loss success using these services. However, if cost is a concern, the team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss can recommend meals to make according to your budget.


What are the benefits of meal plans?

By planning your meals ahead of time, you always know how many calories you’re eating at each meal, which helps keep your weight loss on track.

You also have the added convenience of having a healthy meal readily available when you need to eat. This reduces the need to order takeout or eat unhealthy foods when you’re hungry or on the go.

The team at NuvidaRx Weight Loss works closely with you to develop meals based on your health needs and your own personal tastes. By incorporating regular meal preparation into your usual schedule, you’re more likely to stick to your healthy diet and achieve your desired results.
