Meal Plan Monday – “The Wendie Plan”: Low-carb Style

I have heard before of “The Wendie Plan“, and over the weekend it was brought up again on a message board I frequent. Basically, based on Weight Watchers, the “Wendie Plan” addresses the issue of weight loss stalling by “tricking” your body to not get into a pattern. This occurs by varying the number of calories so that some days you have many more than you should, other days having many less, and still other days having just the right amount — but in doing such, still keeping with the number of calories per week in the “what you should have” range. I don’t know if this method has the means of working successfully on a low-carb plan, but I’m going to give it a shot this week, as my weight loss, for the most part, has stalled again.

The menu I came up with ends up giving me about 9800 calories this week (or about 1400 per day), and 170.5 net carbohydrate grams per week (or about 24 per day). We shall see if it works!

*Disclaimer – I personally do not advocate the use of low-carb diets or artificial sweeteners for an extended period of time. I am strictly going the low-carb route temporarily to burn fat quickly. I will then go back to my typically healthy vegetarian/no chemical diet to maintain my weight.

This menu is only for me; not the children, and the numbers after the meals = calories/net carbohydrate grams.

    I’ve lost some weight by cutting calories, and I’ve found this “tricking” your body works, although I don’t go over my daily calorie limit if I can help it. But if I get stuck, going a day or two with a couple hundred less calories gets it back on track, and even when I go back to regular intake, I still keep losing. I didn’t know there was a name for it and all that!
