Meal planning is not an easy task. From a perspective of someone who has not done it yet, it is just simply writing on blank boxes all the foods that one has to take on certain times of the day. On the other hand, if you have already tried eating as planned, nothing is ever easy. That is when meal planners enter the scenario.
A meal planner is a list of foods a person needs to prepare, eat and continue to keep track on for a certain period of time. It also includes the shedule on when to eat certain foods, and the time of the day where a certain meal plan has to be taken. A list of Sample Plans can help you along the way should you want to plan your meals ahead of time.

Planning your food intake per meal varies on your personal needs or the goals that you want to achieve. Commonly, you can see three meal planner formats that are as follows:
- Daily Meal Planner. This kind of meal planning totally works for people who need to take care of their calorie counts. Since it is on a daily basis, they can keep track of the number of calories per meal that they have already taken.
- Weekly Meal Planner. Planning for seven days a week can be tough as it needs consistency in terms of the budget to be used and the amount of food that is needed to be prepared. This works for families and groups who wanted to assure that the entire week is already planned and covered in terms of meals. If you think you need a weekly meal plan but does not know how to do it, you can look at Sample Weekly Meal Plans for references.
- Monthly Meal Planner. Creating a meal planner for one month is best for people who have long-term goals. As an example, athletes and a lot of body builders do this because they have to take care of their physique and stamina.
