Ultimate Meal Planning Guide

Jane, a metaboic balancer in Alamo, CA, wanted to share her method of meal planning that makes the metabolic lifestyle work.

Jane has a demanding schedule and often felt frustrated at meal times when she discovered that the fish went bad, the chicken was still frozen, or there was not enough lettuce. With a busy job and long commute, she often doesn’t have time or energy to dash to the store.


Determined to succeed, Jane discovered a way to stay organized and always have what she needed.

  1. Create a weekly planner template on a spreadsheet.
  2. Every Saturday inventory what foods are there. Knowing what she has helps keep food from going bad.
  3. Make a meal plan for the week according to personalized metabolic balance® plan.
  4. Print plan and keep it with you.
  5. Use the white space on the right hand side for a shopping list. Jane says, “Fish is tough. Calculating when to buy and cook fresh fish can be a challenge.”
  6. Keep it all together. Add other unrelated tasks in the shopping list area, such as buying a greeting card for a relative.
  7. After dinner, review what prep is needed for the next day. Take something out of the freezer, boil eggs, wash lettuce and vegetables, etc.
  8. Planner is handy if your coach asks for a food diary. How To Keep A Food Diary.


Keep it simple. Don’t overthink. Sometimes a meal can be as easy as egg-drop soup (eggs, vegetables, water). Soup is soothing and lasts longer.

    Thank you, Jane, you are a smart balancer indeed!


  2. Excellent! I’m not so good with planning meals ahead but I totally love the idea. I need to look up more slow cooker recipes now that winter is upon us. It has been in storage all summer.
