This healthy take on a low-carb diet does double duty, thanks to all the anti-inflammatory foods and recipes included. Whether you follow this meal plan for the whole 30 days or just choose one recipe to try, it's guaranteed you'll love it.

In this 30-day meal plan, we incorporated the principles of an anti-inflammatory diet while cutting down on carbohydrates to help you meet your health goals. While carbohydrates are not the enemy, reducing the carbohydrate intake allows us to include a higher proportion of healthy fats from nuts, seeds, olive oil and avocados—staples of the anti-inflammatory diet—while still staying within the calorie goal.

We kept the carbohydrates between 30-35% of the days total calories (for reference, the average diet is typically 50% carbohydrates or more), so it's not so low that you'll miss out on important nutrients, like fiber. You'll still see healthy carbs in this plan, like whole grains, fruits (especially berries) and plenty of vegetables vegetables, plus nuts and seeds to help your nutrient goals.

Because carrying extra weight may increase inflammation, we capped the calories at 1,500 calories a day, which is a calorie level most people will lose weight following. We also included modifications for 1,200 and 2,000 calories a day, depending on your needs. It's important to note that healthy weight loss is gradual weight loss (about 1 to 2 pounds per week), so if you're feeling hungry at 1,500 calories, bump it up until you feel satisfied and slowly taper down to fewer calories over the next few months. If you're struggling with inflammation and don't desire weight loss, this plan can certainly still work for you.
