These plans will come in the form of different menus and recipes for dishes that you can follow on a week to week basis. You will also get information sheets with guidelines showing which foods are healthy and how much of each food group to take each day.

Many people also join a support group or food club in their local neighborhood. The groups will host a weekly meeting where information can be shared and specialist advice given by experts in nutrition.
