    I bought this meal plan mainly to get some new recipes and to give a little back to fitnessblender by actually purchasing something; Kelly and Dan rock my world with their free workouts :) I think this meal plan offers lots of guidance for people with little knowledge about nutrition and great recipe ideas for anyone already eating healthy. Because the meals and snacks consist of a combination of macro-nutrients they are really filling and satisfying, and tasty too!

    I love all the information in the beginning that helps understand how food works. That's the part I needed most, and the rest is just putting those ideas into practice to learn what a 300 calorie meal looks like, for example. I just wish the practice part were written better, as that's the core of a meal plan. I'm on the 1400 calorie plan with this and I cheat probably way too much and don't work out enough for it to be effective though I have stopped gaining weight, which is a nice start. I'll start working out once I've got eating right figured out. I understand I'm clearly the cause of it not being very effective, so I'm not giving it a lower rating for that. It only gets 2 stars because it's a massive hassle to do purely because it doesn't seem to have been actually tested by someone for each of the calorie plans (or perhaps any of them?) The shopping list desperately needs amounts listed! I go shopping on sundays, but usually run out of a few critical ingredients and have to go... More > again twice more during the week and have to throw other foods away because I only use .5 but I bought 6 of them. I really don't have 4 hrs each week to calculate exactly how much of each item the plan calls for before I go shopping. It could also be organized a little better by grouping by section of the supermarket you're likely to find each group of ingredients by(produce, spices, ect.) Also those wasa crackers in week 1 have to go. It's the only brand name item on there, and there's a reason there aren't others. It's also distinctly missing a few ingredients. If you're not there yet, make sure you buy .25 - .66 oz Dark Chocolate for week 2 even though it isn't listed. you'll want it on day 11.2 (the numbering is all wrong too, it should be "week 2 day 4") The lunches are mostly a disaster. Salads and "sandwiches" are the primary lunches- The "sandwiches" usually amount to about 3 cups of random ingredients and a single piece of bread which you're somehow supposed to "assemble into a sandwich". really? they clearly didn't understand how sandwiches work when writing this. they aren't even "open face sandwich" type sandwiches, they're just lots of failure and not enough bread. The salads are MASSIVE! (for the 1400 calorie plan anyway). While most other meals leave me either *slightly* hungry or exactly full I can't even finish most of the salads. They also tend to contain a random fruit that totally wrecks the flavor of the whole thing, usually apples.< Less

    I love, love, love the idea of these two putting together a mean/nutrition plan. I'm drawn to their workouts because I don't have to fuss around figuring out what to do each morning. I hoped the meal plan would be the same. Here's the best analogy I can give (especially for those of you who have been doing their workouts for a bit). You know how you can tell which exercise videos were from the very beginning (no explanations, no timers, no warmups, etc.), and which are more recent? Well, that's about it with this meal plan. It's definitely the 1.0 version with room to grow. Honestly, it has it's pros and cons... Pros: -Tons of "up front" information about to think about and use food. - Plan includes shopping lists so you don't have to figure it all out. - Love that there is a wide variety of items in the vegetarian version. The sequencing is well done, and they don't shy away from "vegy-ish" items such as tofu. Cons: - The shopping lists are simply that - a list.... More > Without analyzing each meal item for the month, it's nearly impossible to determine how much to purchase of each item. For example, "potatoes"...do I need 3? Do I need a ten-pound bag? - Also, each meal has an ingredient list and directions, but no "names" for items, no "prep time" vs. "cook time", etc. It's very difficult to figure out if you are preparing a casserole, a salad, a pasta sauce, etc. Reading all the way thru, I've written in on mine what it is I'm making so I know ahead of time. Also, wish I knew HOW MUCH each recipe will make (will it cover me? Family of 4? Hard to tell. This will definitely get better as it goes thru various versions, just as the exercise videos have!!! -< Less

    As a fitnessblender follower on youtube and previous customer of the 8 week exercise plan, I knew this meal plan was going to be good, but I didn't know how good! I've completed all 4 weeks of the vegetarian meal plan and it was super easy to follow and actually quite enjoyable. Not only did I slim down from following the plan, I also reset my brain to stomach connection. What I mean by that is realizing what and how much makes me full and when to stop eating. This plan is so full of nutritious, tasty, clean eating food. I felt more healthy after the first 3 days! The beginning of the book sets you up with all the information you need to complete the plan successfully. They include FAQ's at the end, and if that's not enough (which it was for me) you can even contact them for help. These guys do a great job to help people lose, maintain, or gain weight at a low cost. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love Fitness Blender! Thanks Daniel & Kelli

    My husband and I are vegetarians and it is definitely difficult to find meal plans that suit our lifestyle. I was already going to Fitness blender for exercise routines when I saw that they had a meal plan for veggies coming soon. As soon as I saw it available, I bought it. It was easy to download and easy to follow. I am only on week one and it definitely provides more information then I needed, but I would highly recommend it to a vegetarian who wanted a good healthy meal plan. My only suggestion would be to include more spices. I made the chickpea guacamole with cumin and chili powder and it was delish. It definitely is a great starting point. Thanks so much for creating this!
