30-Day Low-Carb Meal Plan: 1,200 Calories

Low-carb diets are holding steady in the weight-loss world as the top diet for losing weight. And while some research suggests that a combination of a low-calorie and low-carb diet can be effective for weight loss, if you end up going too low in carbs, you can actually make weight loss harder for yourself. There are some strong arguments regarding how many carbs in a low-carb diet actually make it effective for weight loss, but the truth is you don't have to go as low as the keto and Whole30 diets suggest to get weight-loss benefits. In this 30-day low-carb diet plan, we show you what a healthy low-carb diet for weight loss looks like, with a full month of delicious low-carb breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack ideas.

Don't miss our Healthy Low-Carb RecipesHigh-Protein Low-Carb Recipes.

When you cut carbs from your diet (like whole grains, legumes, certain fruits and starchy vegetables), you also end up cutting fiber, as those carb-containing foods provide the majority of fiber in the diet. Since fiber helps keep you feeling full and satisfied after meals, we want to be sure you're still getting enough each day. Plus, carbohydrates themselves provide a lot of important nutrients, some of which are really difficult to get from other foods (like vitamin D and calcium found in dairy products). With that in mind, we kept this meal plan low in carbs but not so low that you'd miss out on these important nutrients. You'll still see healthy carb-containing foods in this plan (like fruit, Greek yogurt and beans) along with healthy low-carb foods (like lean protein and healthy fats) that combine to create an easy-to-to follow 30-day low-carb meal plan for weight loss. Whether you follow this meal plan exactly as it's laid out or simply use it as an inspirational guide for following a healthy low-carb diet, we're sure you'll find it helpful. Couple this healthy meal plan with regular exercise and you're on track to lose a healthy 1 to 2 pounds per week.
