The Italian meal plan is an introduction to a unique style of eating, following the general guidelines and foods commonly eaten in Italian diets. The balances of macronutrients help sustain energy and satisfaction levels throughout the day. Adequate fiber is provided through fresh fruits and vegetables and flavor is enhanced through the use of spices and herbs. Sweets are part of the traditional Italian diet, both breakfast and throughout the day, so healthy varieties are part of this plan. Plans provide approximately 50% carbohydrate, 20% protein, 30% of fat and are high in fiber. Calorie ranges: 1000, 1200, 1500, 1800, 2000, 2200, 2400, 2600, 2800 and 3200.
