One week menu for JumpStartMD diet

Here’s a one-week menu plan for a client who is doing the JumpStartMD diet. She wants to lose weight, pronto, and this diet will keep her on tract, it’s varied veggies, low carb, healthy fats and protein.

  • This menu includes dinners for the weekdays (lunches will be at her company).
  • Includes snacks for at home and for on the road.
  • The weekend includes breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
  • Breakfast and lunches will be the strong meals of the day, with the dinners on the lite side.
  • Based on what we’ve discussed in the past I made a menu that is dairy free and mushroom free.
  • Some of the items repeat and or are re-purposed.
  • All reheating can be done on the stove top in a skillet with a bit of water, covered, cook for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Underlined items are links to similar food that I’ve made or that are favorites of mine from other food blogs.
  • I’ll note in parenthesis the items she will need to buy and make. I’ll make the rest, will leave it in her fridge, labeled w/directions.
  • I’ll send recipes to the client for things she will make.
