Our weekly weight loss plans help busy vegetarians take back control over their food by saving time, money and being excited about their meals again.
Families, jobs, caring for others – it all takes time. Often you’re left with very little time for cooking. Then it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by food.
We know what we ‘should’ be eating, but when we’re under stress the thought of finding then cooking a healthy meal just compounds that stress on top of us.
But sticking with the same old habits might mean you keep relying on sub-par meals or restaurant take out. It can lead to health issues and weight gain.
They’re designed specifically for the goal of healthy eating and weight loss. Each recipe is tried and tested by us multiple times until it is perfect. There’s no risk that a recipe will turn out terribly.
The sooner you take back control of the question ‘but what do I eat next’, the sooner you’ll remove stress and gain back peace of mind, a key aspect of healthy eating and weight loss.
It can be hard to know what to actually cook. You might be sick of the same old recipes, or don’t know how to find healthy ones that give you everything you need.
If you’re not happy with the nutritional profile of your current recipes AND bored with them too, then you’re likely to fall back onto less healthy choices because you know you’ll enjoy them. Your diet becomes worse overall. Regaining weight is demotivating and frustrating.
We absolutely love creating recipes with exciting flavor combos from a wide variety of cuisines but we always make sure our recipes are affordable and use easy-to-find ingredients that stay fresh until you need them (or are suitable for home freezing) too.
New recipe inspiration is sometimes needed to break old habits.
The sooner we start to implement good habits into our lives and get used to them, the quicker we see health benefits and weight loss.
In turn these positives spur us on to keep going, helping to repeat the cycle week after week.
Enjoy tasty recipes, enjoy long term health 🙂
Our meal plans are made to reduce stress and save time. They are designed to promote weight loss at a safe and consistent rate of around 1-2 lbs (0.5-1kg) every week.
Here’s exactly how the weekly meal plans help.
Life is full of decisions and ‘what to eat?’ is one of the biggest, especially when trying to lose weight. It takes a surprising amount of mental energy and if we get it wrong it’s often followed by feelings of frustration or guilt.
We know how busy you already are. Meal plans are very useful, IF they don’t overwhelm you.
→ Skip tedious planning and calorie counting. Save time by jumping straight to shopping, cooking and eating! It’s all about peace of mind.
Ever tried a recipe that took ages, wasn’t really tasty and the kitchen looked like a mess afterwards? That is what we want to avoid at all costs.
Our recipes reduce stress and save time.
Our recipes are delicious AND weight loss suitable.
Why You Benefit from High Protein Recipes
Adding more protein to your meals helps you feel less hungry. But getting more protein as a vegetarian is not easy without overdoing carbs or fats.
This is where our recipe expertise comes in: vegetarian and tasty but high in protein, and optimized for weight loss.
→ Not only save time preparing recipes, but also save time finding recipes that are tasty and in line with sound vegetarian weight loss advice.
You can easily get support from Hauke, Dave and James, our registered nutritionist, by simply posting in our private Facebook group or via email.

Dave Bell, James Bell MSc & Hauke Fox
We designed our meal plans to help you lose weight at roughly 1lb (½ kg) every week. We planned the numbers of calories, fats, proteins and carbs needed to keep you feeling satisfied and full of energy.
The membership is $9.90/month after a 7-day trial period. You can cancel anytime, no questions asked.
No, but you can try it out for 7 days for free and see what you think. After that you can cancel monthly. It takes just a click in the dashboard! No emails or phone calls necessary.
We use dollars as it’s the most recognized universal currency. Don’t worry, everything will be converted to your local currency as you pay by your credit card or Paypal account.
No, we don’t deliver, nor do we provide the food! We’ll make your shopping lists but you’ll still have to buy/order your groceries yourself. That goes for the cooking, too.
Yes! Depending on which recipes you choose to make, and for how many people – everything is changed automatically. You don’t need to change a thing yourself.
Happily every single recipe can simply be toggled for as many servings as you like!
Yep, absolutely! We have metric and imperial measurements for all of our recipes – you can just toggle between them on each recipe.
Yes, they probably did! And did they gain it back again? We’ve found through speaking to thousands of ‘dieters’ that weight gain after keto or other ‘flavour of the month’ diets is real and severe. We want to avoid weight gain at all costs – we want to help you lose weight steadily, consistently and then help you to stay at a healthy weight after. We aim for consistency and a slower rate of weight loss is better for this.
You can change every meal and snack to your liking (and we have a huge list of non-dairy, non-nut recipes and snacks to choose from). Each of the ready-made meal plans we have does include dairy and quite often nuts, however.
Sugar/honey/maple syrup? No, it’s not forbidden, some recipes call for sugar or maple syrup, just in smaller amounts.
We look at overall calories, fat, protein and saturated fat when we create meal plans and recipes.
Everything from scratch? No, not necessary either. We don’t doom processed food per se. A tin of tomatoes is processed. And it’s absolutely fine to use. Same as store-bought pesto or hummus. Yes, bread bought at the store is absolutely fine!
In fact most of our members are around 40 – 75 years old. We get the occasional question about our meal planner. If that happens Hauke jumps right on to help you individually (and not just a generic tutorial video).
We wouldn’t advise you to lose weight while being pregnant, and would recommend speaking to your health professional about it.
