The Best Part Of Following A Meal Plan


Vince Del Monte, WBFF Pro Fitness Model, Certified Fitness Trainer

This past we discussed that you need a nutritional template if you’re truly committed to having the healthiest and most attractive body possible.

A nutritional template just means, a meal plan.

A lot of people make the mistake of thinking they need a SPECIAL PLAN designed to meet their individual needs and that is a MISTAKE, at first.

Eventually you can incorporate some more advanced nutrition techniques but if you’re not flaunting a ripped six-pack, right now, or exasperating all-day energy, you are probably swimming in water too deep.

You’ve Been Lied To

We’ve both been conditioned to believe that you need a nutrition plan different than everyone else. You’re right, partly.

You’ve been told to worry about calories, macro-nutrient rations and other advanced details in the beginning, which in my opinion is wasted energy.

Focusing on these details is like working on your finishing sprint in the marathon when you’re not even in shape to run 1 mile yet.

The best meal plan is based on balance and variety which is exactly catered to your physiological make up. You can’t get more personalized than that!


At the start, EVERYONE’S nutritional quest should begin at the same starting line.

Plainly put:

You Need A SIMPLE Nutritional Plan You Can Implement IMMEDIATELY, COMPLETE With The CORRECT, Foundational Nutritional Principles.

That’s why I we sold 1,894 copies of the “Designed-For-You” Meal Plans last week.  You can still join the 1,894 others who have already joined and on board to following a nutritional template as a starting line.

Members love these meal plans because they are so easy to implement your very next meal and continue until you have developed the habits necessary to see results so that you stay motivated and finally perfect your body and health.

The Best Part Of Your Own Meal Plan

There are no rules to follow, complex formulas, expensive supplements, ridiculous macronutrient ratios that you need to concern yourself with.

Everything is already DONE-FOR-YOU and designed-for-you.

Don’t get me wrong, once you get to being a few percent away from “camera-ready” and “contest-ready” shape, you’re going to have to incorporate some more advanced tricks but for now, it’s best you accept the 3-phase meal plans as the best place to start.

Why I Don’t Always Answer Your Emails

As you know I’ve been a fitness author and professional for the past 6-years and I get hundreds of emails each week for specific fat loss nutrition

I enjoy you’re email and it’s a highlight of my day to chat with you but I also get EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED with many emails I receive.

Just yesterday I got an email from someone who asked if they should cut their carbs in order to lose more fat.

I didn’t answer, almost.

I usually DO NOT answer these emails and instead direct you to one of my comprehensive articles or videos or programs so you can answer the question yourself (which will also test how serious you are 🙂 )

No “One-Minute” Changes Will Make A Difference

To be honest, unless I know this person personally, I usually don’t answer these emails because unless you are measuring what you are doing nutritionally, there is NO ONE-MINUTE CHANGE THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

My advice would be useless because none of the other nutrition variables in your program are constant so you would have no way of measuring if this one-minute change actually worked or not.

Answering your question becomes a waste of time for me and asking your question becomes a waste of time for you.

As you know, I really do want want to see you build your best body so I do answer them but in a way that is more helpful because this person is asking the wrong question!

The Best Way I Can Answer Your Questions…

Unless you show me exactly what you have been eating every day for the past month and unless you have a way of controlling every variable for the next month or so (to a realistic compliancy) then we have no way to determine if “dropping carbs” actually made a difference or not.

Remember the famous quote I shared with you recently?healthy-meal-plans

“If it can not be measure then it can not be improved.”

Famous wise words.

Here’s Another Simple Truth…

Simple truth: you probably have no idea what you’re eating.

You’re not alone, 98% (or more) of the population is in the same boat.

That is only way 1-2% of the population actually have desirable, attractive and healthy physiques. I’m assuming you want to be one of them since you’re still with me?

You may be applying “nutrition health tips” found in magazines like eat more protein, eat more frequently, get more fiber, eat veggies with every meal and all those other great tips.

And if you’re getting the results you’re after and look and feel the way you want then you don’t have a problem.

Keep doing what you’re doing and rock on!

If you ARE NOT, however, this is a major problem we can solve TODAY.

Here’s Why The Meal Plans WORK

Let’s say you follow the meal plan 80% of the time. So if there are 5 meals per day, 7 days a week, you have 35 meals to adhere to. You follow it 80% of the time meaning you eat 28 of the 35 meals. Not bad at all.

But what do you do if step on the scale after one week and nothing changed?

Maybe you need a new diet plan? Maybe you need to drop the calories? Maybe there is something wrong with our plans? Surely, this must be the case.


The solution is simple.

***Follow the meal plans better than you did last week.***

Aim for 85% compliancy.

Just like you try to lift an extra 5 pounds with your weights or do an extra rep, you should be applying the same principle of progression to your nutrition. When you start getting closer to 90% compliancy, I promise you’ll be standing out in EVERY crowd.

Without following the plan and knowing what you are eating you have no way of making improvements and are a victim of winging your nutrition and hoping the fat might magically come off.

Following A Healthy Meal Plan Is NOT For Everyone

There is no shame in admitting if this sounds too intense for you. Not everyone is meant to have a perfect body and not everyone is as committed to their health and fitness as others.

I’m the last one to point the finger 🙂

The only shame is believing that you’re doing “everything right” when you’re clearly not even coming close.

The reality is that if you are not following any sort of meal plan right now and were to FOLLOW to the Empowered Nutrition meal plans just 20% of the time and gradually complied more and more, you would easily and quickly start losing that next 10, 20 and 30 pounds of stubborn fat.

Your body will be in better hormonal balance which will boost the fat burning hormones within your body so you can get into the best shape of your life – inside and out.

I think you know what you need to do now.

P.S.  Many of you have already downloaded the plans and I would love for you to share how the plans have been working for you?  Be completely honest and share how much weight you have already lost too.

  1. @Karen – Karen, did you get on the first coaching call last night?

    Don’t worry about calories. Our media has failed us and led us to believe that calories are the be all and end all and getting fixated on calories is what we’re trying to get you AWAY from.

    If you have used the calculator and it told you to follow 1200, trust it and make changes based on how you feel, how you look and how you perform. Not what the media says is “low calories” and “high calories.”

    Your body is smarter than the media.

    you can make any food changes you need.

    Start planning out your game plan of adhering to the meals while you travel. This is an obstacle everyone must overcome and deal with. You can do it.

  2. The meal plans are OK, but I had a few questions and cannot find a way to ask them. Specifically, I first want to find out the best way to handle the “Fast Fat Loss” 1200 calorie a day plan while I am on vacation. 1200 calories a day is pretty small amount of calories, for starters, and traveling makes this SO much more of a challenge…which I am willing to take on, since I’m SO tired of being overweight and out of shape. Second, I wanted to know if I could substitute ricotta for cottage cheese or protein powder in my post-workout smoothie recipes.
