30-Day Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan: 1,200 Calories

Enjoy the delicious flavors of the Mediterranean while losing weight with this healthy meal plan.

The Mediterranean diet continues to prove itself as one of the healthiest ways to eat. In 2020, it was voted the best diet for the third year in a row by U.S News & World Report. The Mediterranean diet is more of a healthy-eating lifestyle than a restrictive diet. It emphasizes a wide variety of fruits and vegetables as well regularly eating fish, nuts and other foods with healthy fats while limiting processed foods, red meats in excess and refined grains, like white bread.

Plus, it recognizes the often undervalued health benefit of eating more mindfully. Although our schedules can often be busy, taking time to cook a meal at home and sit down to enjoy it rather than eating on the move or in front of the television can have hidden benefits. When we eat without distractions and make the meal more of an event, we tend to be more in tune with our hunger cues and take in fewer calories than when we eat while distracted.

In this 30-day meal plan, we incorporate the principles of the Mediterranean diet with plenty of meal-prep recipes and no-cook breakfast options to make eating healthy and losing weight realistic for busy schedules. At 1,200 calories, this plan should help you lose a healthy 1 to 2 pounds per week.
