Anvanca is the only program that combines an effective weight loss supplement with free personalized coaching to help you lose weight and keep it off. We believe a structured meal plan is very useful in first month as you learn new behaviors. This is why we developed 28 days meal plans based upon individual diet preferences, and each plan has a male and female version. The vegetarian diet plan follows an ovo/lacto model, which allows for egg and milk products. The vegetarian diet is full of fiber and healthy vitamins and minerals, and it is a good choice for losing weight. Women need approximately 1,800 calories a day to maintain their weight. Given weight reduction goal of a pound per week, daily calories will range between 1,100 and 1,300 per day. We even have a few days where we add in a “cheat” for a little treat.
