5 Menu Ideas to Maintain Your Ideal Weight

The most effective way to stay in shape is to follow a specific diet accompanied by regular physical exercise. And because health is paramount, a varied diet is recommended.

Here are 5 proposals for protein-rich menus: healthy and balanced meals that cover your nutritional needs while reducing your calorie intake. You won’t risk feeling hungry during the day or subjecting yourself to a restrictive diet that causes deficiencies. The principle is to maintain your weight through a reasonable amount of “foods you love” and to eliminate non-nutritious foods.

Menu Idea 1:

Start the day with a savory breakfast: 2 slices of chicken breast and a portion of goat cheese, accompanied by a cup of unsweetened green tea;
For a snack at 10 a.m.: one or two low-fat yogurts, plain or soy-based;
At lunch: a salad of hard-boiled eggs and tomatoes with a little dressing, a portion (150 g) of fish fillet, and steamed vegetables (green beans or carrots with herbs and garlic);
Snack at 4 p.m.: a handful of nuts or dried fruits and a hot beverage (tea, herbal tea);
For dinner: indulge in a seafood salad, rabbit/turkey or chicken in parchment paper, and herbal tea for a good night’s sleep.

Menu Idea 2:

A vitamin-rich breakfast: make a smoothie with soy yogurt, ½ glass of almond milk, and two fruits of your choice (for example, a banana and 3 strawberries);
To curb mid-morning hunger, eat three squares of dark chocolate or a fruit compote;
At lunch: a salad of radishes with cottage cheese and chives (tzatziki) and a few slices of roast pork (150 g) accompanied by steamed vegetables or rice;
For a snack: a fresh fruit (apple, avocado, slice of watermelon, etc.);
For dinner: assorted vegetable soup and a slice of whole grain bread. A calming herbal tea to finish.

Menu Idea 3:

For breakfast: a soft-boiled egg, low-fat cottage cheese, plain yogurt, and pineapple juice;
Healthy snack at 10 a.m.: cut half a cucumber into small pieces;
At noon: a green salad (with olive oil) and pasta with tuna sauce (150 g), a fruit for dessert (apple, peach, etc.), then unsweetened green tea;
Snack at 4 p.m.: three scoops of strawberry sorbet, mango, or according to your preferences;
For dinner: lamb’s lettuce and crouton salad, rabbit or turkey in parchment paper, and herbal tea for restful sleep.

Menu Idea 4:

Start the day with a complete breakfast consisting of muesli with fresh fruit and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice;
Have a healthy snack mid-morning: 3 or 4 strawberries;
At noon: a whole avocado in salad (with herbs and lemon juice) and a grilled salmon steak accompanied by steamed vegetables/rice and unsweetened green tea;
Snack at 4 p.m.: a slice of watermelon or a wedge of melon;
For dinner: broccoli salad as an appetizer followed by a delicious pork tenderloin and onion casserole (about 150 g, flavored with thyme). Don’t forget the herbal tea to promote sleep and/or digestion.

Menu Idea 5:

In the morning: a serving of cottage cheese and a fruit juice;
Healthy snack at 10 a.m.: two soft-boiled eggs or steamed vegetables (coriander, lemon);
At noon: grilled shrimp with a quinoa salad (or sauced according to your taste);
For a 4 p.m. craving: replenish your energy with a fruit salad and low-fat yogurt;
In the evening: gazpacho with diced vegetables (cucumber, tomato, bell pepper) and a rabbit/pork stew or liver with mushrooms. A final touch of well-being: a fragrant, unsweetened infusion. At any time: drink plenty of water!
