    What are the benefits of this plan?

    Whether you’re aiming to lose weight, increase your energy levels or just glow with health, our Healthy Diet Plans are here to help. We’ve combined new recipes with expert tips from our nutritionist, Kerry Torrens (MBANT), to bring you a seven-day menu that will help you to look and feel fantastic.

    At BBC Good Food, we believe that the healthiest eating is focused around whole, natural foods – and our diet plans follow these principles. All the recipes are packed with healthy fats, lean protein and slow-release carbs, as well as minimising processed products. We've also included a variety of meat and vegetarian options throughout the week.

    The results? You can expect to...

    • Cut down on added sugar
    • Increase your energy levels
    • Improve your digestion
    • Lose excess weight
    • Support your immune system

    Our Healthy Diet Plan recipes are bursting with protective antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients to lift your mood and keep you fuller for longer, helping you feel your very best. We’ve also ensured that each day provides a balance of protein, fats and carbs to help keep blood sugar levels in check while curbing cravings.

    About the recipes

    When you sign up to the plan, you can access an at-a-glance chart to see your weekly menu. Eaten in the recommended order, each day will deliver an optimal balance of macronutrients. You'll also achieve all five of your five-a-day (or more!) and keep within the recommended Reference Intakes (RI) for fats, protein, sugar, salt and kcals while following the latest guidance on your intake of 'free' sugars.

    Our plans provide no more than 1,500 kcals per day and include room to pick and choose from our healthy snack recipes if you like, or if your lifestyle requires a higher calorie intake. For those who want to lose weight, our plan is likely to create a moderate shortfall of daily calories, allowing for steady and controlled weight loss. However, as with any lifestyle or diet change, if you have any concerns or health issues we would encourage you to check with your GP before embarking on our plans. While we recommend following the plan in order, if you want to swap or repeat days, you'll still reap all the benefits of eating whole, nourishing foods.

    The recipes make enough for two people for seven days, and have been written by food writer Sara Buenfeld and analysed by nutritionist (MBANT) Kerry Torrens. You can read more about the nutritional benefits of each recipe, along with Kerry's top tips for achieving your goals, when you sign up.

    We understand that diet plans can be time-consuming, so we've given tips for getting ahead and attempted to keep preparation and cooking times to a minimum. We've aimed to keep ingredient costs down and reduce waste, although there may be the odd occasion where you can enjoy leftovers for another meal. If you have questions or comments about any of the recipes, our cookery team are keen to hear them – please send an email to goodfoodwebsite@immediate.co.uk.

    I’m a pescatarian also. Maybe a range for those who are would be really helpful.

    It would be nice if you could customise your options more, rather than just meat or veggie option. I don't eat meat but do eat fish.

    I agree! and it would be nice to be able to combine the two - my husband's a true carnivore and I, although not vegetarian, do love my veggies and fish.

    How would you suggest going about preparing the meals for one person instead of two.

    Thanks for your question. Some of the recipes are freezable (you will find a blue star above the nutritional info on these recipes), others can be halved. Unfortunately we are unable to tailor our plans specifically for different numbers at the moment.

    I want to go on a vegan ketone diet to deal with cancer, so do you have any diets that would meet this need? Thanks.

    Thank you for contacting BBC Good Food. We have numerous vegan recipes on our site, which we welcome you to try: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/vegan However, we do not have a collection of vegan recipes which are suitable for a Ketone diet and we are unable to provide specific advice in this area.
    Be the first to suggest a tip for this recipe...Got your own twist on this recipe? Or do you have suggestions for possible swaps and additions? We’d love to hear your ideas.
