This sample 3000 calorie meal plan will have you eating six meals per day. If you can't eat six times per day, it is not a problem if you need to stuff these into 3 or 4 meals. Also, if you're currently eating somewhere around 2000 calories, you may want to gradually increase your caloric intake to prevent fat gain.

You can also feel free to substitute approved fruits and veggies in place of the whole wheat bread.
