Here’s a low-carb 7 day meal plan from celebrity trainer Chris Powell (Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition) that focuses on reducing our normal carb intake which also reduces our crashing highs from the sugar in most foods. Supposedly lower-carb diets help maintain a consistent amount of energy and helps burns more calories and you actually lose pounds.

Hmm…we will see.

So every day, the meals are the same. But below will be a detailed list of when, what, what’s in it, and how to make it.

I’m going to try to follow this as closely as I can. It’ll help me save time on figuring out what to eat each day and just plan for the week. I will report at the end of the week.

      It’s a great meal plan but you need to count calories and exercise. I did lose weight, about 8 lbs but I learned how to portion my food, choose the right foods for me as long as I watched my calories and exercised. But this is a lifestyle change not a quick weight loss thing. Good luck!
