So if your serious about this diet, want to lose weight and feel fantastic and have read my previous blogs I assume that you have done your shopping and are ready to start . Congratulations! Let’s get going.
I have showed you my shopping list , yes and no foods ,and proportion sizes. Again prep is key . My prep day is usually Sunday or Monday because I am off and have the time to prepare my food which makes the week so much easier and keeps you on track. If you don’t have a plan in mind it is too easy to fall off the wagon!
O.K. so you have your fruits washed , proportioned and in snack baggies. (I make a berry mix because berries such as strawberries and blueberries are high in antioxidants ,therefore making your skin glow!) You will need one bag per person for each day . I make 14 snack bags for Brandon and myself. You will need the “Fruit “ in the morning with your breakfast.
I also proportion out a nut mixture (cashews, brazil nuts, almonds ) easy to grab for a Fat portion of any meal.
Now lets talk about your protein portion. Today I am making Dr.Kellyannes Turkey Chile recipe . Its super easy and I modify it a little bit . Its hearty and will make about 3 meals per person. I look forward to eating this after a long day at work and hours of traffic on the 405! You Californian’s can relate ,I’m sure!
