GLP-1 Meal Plans

Casa de Sante GLP-1 meal plans were developed to work alongside GLP-1 medications. The plans were designed by a dietitian involved in the GLP1 clinical trials to help users balance their nutrition and mitigate many documented side effects of GLP-1 (Semaglutide & Tirzepatide) use based on clinical trial research.

Key components of the Casa de Sante GLP-1 meal plans are:

Smaller, Frequent Meals:

Instead of three large meals, we designed the meal plan utilizing smaller, more frequent daily meals. This approach helps alleviate GI discomfort by reducing the volume of food consumed at once and easing the workload on the gut.

Our GLP-1 meal plans are higher in protein at 40% of total calories. Protein plays a critical role in a GLP-1 meal plan for several reasons:

  • GLP-1 Secretion: Protein-rich foods stimulate the secretion of GLP-1, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels and promote feelings of fullness. This hormonal response contributes to better glucose control and appetite regulation.

  • Satiety: Including protein in meals and snacks enhances satiety and helps prevent overeating by slowing digestion and prolonging the release of hunger-suppressing hormones like GLP-1.

  • Muscle Maintenance: Adequate protein intake supports muscle maintenance and repair, essential for individuals with diabetes or obesity who may be at risk of muscle loss due to rapid weight loss or inactivity.

  • Blood Sugar Control: Protein helps mitigate blood sugar spikes by slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates and promoting a more gradual release of glucose into the bloodstream. Therefore, incorporating protein-rich foods into each meal and snack is essential for optimizing the benefits of a GLP-1 meal plan and supporting overall metabolic health.

We recommend Casa de Sante low FODMAP certified protein powders for protein shakes because they are low in fermentable carbohydrates which helps minimize digestive side effects on GLP-1 medications.

Low-Fat and Heart Healthy fat Options:

We have chosen to use lower-fat foods, as high-fat meals can exacerbate GI symptoms in some individuals. We opted for lean protein sources like chicken breast, turkey, fish, tofu, and legumes. We incorporated heart-healthy fat sources such as avocado, nuts, seeds, and olive oil for added fat.

Easy-to-Digest Foods:

The GLP-1 meal plans emphasize easily digestible foods such as cooked vegetables, well-cooked grains (such as rice or quinoa), and steamed or baked lean proteins. These options are gentler on the digestive system and may help alleviate GI discomfort.

Constipation can be a side effect of Semaglutide use, often resulting in sluggish bowel movements. Incorporating fiber into the diet serves as an effective measure to prevent constipation for various reasons:


  • Increased Bulk: Fiber adds bulk to the stool, which helps it move more smoothly through the digestive tract. This bulkiness stimulates the muscles in the intestines, promoting regular bowel movements.

  • Improved Bowel Movement: Soluble fiber absorbs water in the digestive tract, forming a gel-like substance that softens the stool and makes it easier to pass. This can alleviate constipation by making bowel movements more regular and comfortable.

  • Stimulation of Gut Motility: Fiber can stimulate peristalsis, the wave-like contractions of the intestines that propel food and waste through the digestive system. This helps prevent stool from becoming stagnant in the colon, reducing the likelihood of constipation. Incorporating fiber-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, can help maintain bowel regularity and prevent constipation. Each meal plan incorporates natural sources clinically proven to alleviate constipation that may occur as a side effect of GLP-1 use. One such source is the kiwi fruit. If kiwi is not readily available or desirable, it can be exchanged for any fresh fruit. We stress the importance of increasing fiber intake gradually and drinking plenty of water to avoid potential digestive discomfort.

Limited Spicy and Acidic Foods:

Spicy and acidic foods can irritate the gastrointestinal tract, so we have avoided their use in the GLP-1 meal plans.


While adequate hydration can help prevent constipation (a common side effect of some GLP-1 medications), we limit fluids with meals to avoid fullness from fluid.

The GLP-1 meal plan focuses on nutrition education and portion control to promote healthy changes. It emphasizes smaller, frequent meals rich in protein to stimulate GLP-1 secretion, enhance satiety, and support muscle maintenance. Lean protein sources and easily digestible foods are prioritized to alleviate GI discomfort, while soluble fiber options are included for GI health. The plan aims to support overall metabolic health while educating users on portion control for sustainable dietary habits.
