1500-1800 Calorie Meal Plan (21 Day Fix Meal Plan)
1500-1800 Calorie Meal Plan: The complete 21 day fix eating plan between 1500 and 1800 calories for 2 people and 6 days. This weight loss meal plan is designed for a simple meal prep and budget friendly grocery shopping.
Do you still think healthy eating is expensive and losing weight is hard?
Let me show you how to make your life easier right now!
Today I have a complete 1500-1800 Calorie Meal Plan for you. This weight loss eating plan is based on the 21 day fix. It is high in protein and low in carbs and filled with a lot of fruits and vegetables.
When I did THIS 21 day fix meal plan (Plan A 1200-1500 Calories) I lost 3 lbs. in 1 week (and 4 lbs. in 10 days)! And I was cheating 3 times (there was a pizza, taco bell, and sweet frog…haha) So I think you can easily lose 3-5 lbs a week actually sticking to the plan.
Now today’s 1500-1800 Calorie Meal Plan is the plan B of the 21 day fix, which means it contains more calories, and you will lose between 1-3 lbs. a week. If you are just starting with the meal plan and you are not in a rush to lose weight, you can start with this one to get used to it and not be overwhelmed with the new daily nutrition.
If you want to lose weight fast, because you need to get beach ready quick, or you have other motivations that drive you to lose weight quickly, head over to the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan A
I recommend adding a workout routine to your diet plan to get the best results. Not only will you lose weight quicker, you will also get stronger, healthier and feel more energized during the day. My favorite workouts are the dance workouts like this one and the 21 day fix workouts.

1 cup of fruits +2 eggs (1 purple, 1 red)
I like to boil a big pot of eggs for about 11 minutes. Rinse them off with cold water and store them in the fridge. Now I can take 2 eggs out every day without any additional work, or simply pack them for on the go.
2 cup veggies (1 cup spinach 1 cup tomatoes and/or cucumber) + 2 T Dressing + 1 Whole Wheat Toast with 6 slices of Deli Turkey/Ham
(2 green, 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 red)
2 cups of fruit
Either eat the fruit as is or blend it into a smoothie. I use this blender to make all my smoothies. Simply add some water for your desired consistency.
1/3 cup hummus (or yogurt dip) + 1 cup Veggies
Dip the Veggies in 1/3 cup hummus or Greek yogurt mixed with seasoning. You can eat this snack whenever you feel hungry in between.
(1 red, 1 green)
Every dinner contains 1 red, 1 green, 2 yellow, and the teaspoon containers. I use the teaspoon amount to cook the dinners (to make the veggies for example). Each recipe serves 4 so 2 people can have one dinner twice. This will save money on groceries and time cooking.
Dinner #1 Ricotta Pasta
2 1/3 cup uncooked penne paste
4 cups spinach
2 cups ricotta cheese (1 pack)
1 t salt
1 clove garlic
1 t. Italian herbs
1 cup water from noodles
1 Cook the penne according to the package and drain. Save 1 cup of the noodle water.
2 mix the rest of the ingredients with the penne in a pot and stir until the ricotta is smooth and the spinach is wilted.
Dinner #2 Meatloaf with Green Beans and Potatoes
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
4 cups potatoes
4 cups green beans
Mix the eggs, meat, salt (1t), pepper, onion powder (1t) and form to a loaf. Put the loaf in the meat loaf pan and bake 45-60 minutes on 400F.
In the meantime cook the potatoes until soft. Roast the green beans in olive oil, pressed garlic until soft and season with salt and pepper.
Dinner #3 Fish with Zucchini and Potato Wedges
4 cups potato wedges
4 fish fillets
4 cups diced vegetables (zucchini)
8 t olive oil
2 t Italian herbs
2 t fish seasoning
fries seasoning or old bay
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Slice the Potatoes into wedges, cover with 4 t olive oil and season with salt, pepper and paprika powder (or fries seasoning, or old bay).
Place the potato wedges on a baking sheet and bake until soft (20-30 minutes)
Dice the zucchini and cover in 4 t olive oil. Add 2 t Italian herbs and mix.
Add the zucchini to the pan and cook until soft (15 minutes). Add salt to taste.
Bake the fish in a pan according to the package and add fish seasoning.
This list shows how many cups of each product you need to buy. This can be a little tricky, because you might not know how many cups are in one box. As a little help I can tell you that one pineapple equals 4-5 cups so you would need the amount of fruit for 5 pineapples.
24 cups fruit
16 cups spinach (probably 3 bags)
24 cups veggies for salad and snack
12 slices toast
72 slices deli meat (probably 2 family sized boxes)
8 cups yogurt to dip the veggies
1 box Penne pasta
1 pack ricotta cheese (2 cups)
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
8 cups potaotes (1 bag)
4 cups green beans (or other vegetable as a side)
4 fish filets
4 cups diced zucchini (or other veggie as a side)
Seasoning: ranch seasoning for the veggie dip, salt, pepper, italian herbs, onion powder, olive oil, fish seasoning, fries seasoning
