As the weather cools down, fall is the perfect time for taking brisk walks outdoors and experimenting with seasonal whole foods like apples, squash, sweet potatoes and more. This sample menu shows how to pair peak produce, lean proteinsbeans and whole grains.

Keep in mind that 1,200 calories is the lowest calorie range suggested for weight loss and isn’t right for everyone, so make sure to consult with a professional if you are unsure. You can easily bump up the calories in this meal plan by adding a morning snack or a whole-grain side at lunch or dinner.
