How to Create a Successful Weight Loss Diet Plan for Men

By: Dr. Anthony Balduzzi, NMD - Men's Health Doctor & Founder, The Fit Father Project & Fit Mother Project,

weight loss diet plan for men
How important is the right weight loss diet plan for men? Believe it or not, but a it's almost certainly more important than a workout routine.

When I first began my weight loss struggle, I thought I could still eat Burger King so long as I took a jog every day.

When that didn't work, I switched to broccoli and chicken. When I got tired of that, I started a diet one of my friends gave me.

None of these methods worked for me.

After each failed attempt, I became less motivated and committed to try to lose weight again.

Why? Because NO ONE likes to fail. Especially when you're trying to get fit!

However, after the dozens of fad diets, and countless hours of research, I have discovered what makes a successful weight loss plan for men.

And here's the big secret: it's not magic, and it's not rocket science.

The best weight loss plan for men doesn't assume that you have multiple hours each day to spend at the gym, or still have the metabolism of a 25-year-old.

Instead, the program is specifically designed for aging men who are incredibly busy.

I personally swear by this program because it's a healthy, realistic balance of motivation, nutrition, and exercise.

If you fully commit to the program I've outlined below, this can be the last time you “try” to get fit.

This is your opportunity to claim your health back once and for all!

The Best Mindset for Weight Loss

There is a specific mindset that you must have to commit to a weight loss diet plan for men.

To understand this mindset, let's first recognize that there are many different situations that can cause or encourage us to be overweight.

Sickness or injury, the stress of your job or just life in general, can lead to unwanted weight gain.

While some of these scenarios — like illness or injury — can be unexpected, we MUST have a positive, determined mindset that can guide us back to health.

Here's where the top 5 reasons men lose motivation to lose weight comes in.

Our detailed account of the key motivators that men need to succeed at weight loss is detailed in the link above.

They include creating proper goals, defining your reason to lose weight, and developing good habits.

Overall, the mindset you need, to conquer a weight loss diet plan for men, is one of dedication, commitment, and positivity.

Before you work out, try saying the following things to yourself:

  • I WILL succeed if I work hard at this
  • My body WILL respond to training if I eat healthily
  • I WILL be satisfied with my body again if I fully commit to this program

Notice that in order for you to succeed, you must put in work.

Luckily, we have outlined below the best methods for you to put in this work to see the most success!

The Best Nutrition for Weight Loss

Any good weight loss diet plan for men includes a nutritional aspect.

But usually, these diets sound something like this:

  • Egg whites and oatmeal every morning — no exceptions.
  • Chicken, rice, and broccoli every noon and night — no exceptions.

Not only are these low-carb, repetitive diets boring, but they're hard to commit to, especially in the long-term.

Why on earth would you say yes to eating the same damn thing every day?

That's why we created the Fit Father 1-day meal plan, especially for guys like you.

In this free meal plan, you will see that our nutritional advice is practical and not time-consuming.

Even better, our recipes are delicious.

The thing is, weight-loss diets don't have to be monotonous and boring for them to work.

What they DO need to do is follow a principle we call “Perfect Plates.”

Here's the simple formula:

  • 1/2 of your plate should be any kind of vegetable
  • 1/4 of your plate should be lean protein
  • 1/4 of your plate should be healthy carbs

The best part? There are HUNDREDS of food combinations that you can create with this framework.

It's essential that you follow the guidelines in our 1-day meal plan because proper nutrition is the first step to losing weight.

As we say at the Fit Father Project: “You can't out-exercise a bad diet.”
