2500 Calories Paleo Diet Plan

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Looking for calorie specific meal plans or new recipes, check out the 7 day meal plan I created using Eat This Much Planner. The aim for each day was 2500 calories, each meal is not more than 100 calories over or under 2500 calories. The meal plans offer delicious recipes that are fairly easy to make and a variety of food so you don’t get bored eating the same thing. Feel free to use it as-is, or import it into your ETM account to get a grocery list, edit the meals, and track your intake.
