Set the goal for the diet plan
Build muscle, lose weight, maintain weight or gain weight?
Before you start creating your diet plan, you should be clear about your goal. For example, do you want to build muscle, lose weight, maintain your weight, or gain weight? Each of these goals requires a different type of diet and a different amount of food. If you want to build muscle, you need more protein and also more calories to provide your body with enough energy and nutrients. On the other hand, if you want to lose weight, you should eat fewer calories and focus on foods that contain less fat and sugar. It is important that you clearly define your goal before you start creating your diet plan, so that you know which foods should be included in your plan and in what amounts.
