I have some immediate homework for you. In order to properly work through this 28 day program you need to be able to use and understand My Fitness Pal to the best of your abilities. This will be the system you will be using to track and calculate your nutrient in- take. Head over to the website, (www.myfitnesspal.com) create an account, (you can also do it through a phone app) and become familiar with the entire program.
I would also highly recommend purchasing a good quality food scale for your counter top. If you are a frequent traveler, you may also want to purchase a small “travel food scale”. Both can be found in common stores such as Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, or online through Amazon.
It is SO much easier to find inspiration to move your body when you fuel and nourish it correctly! Eating nutrient-poor foods (processed junk, high-fat animal foods, and too much sweet, refined sugary snacks) makes you feel yucky and sluggish.
Just beginning to incorporate more fresh fruits, vegetables (green smoothies are the easiest way to do this) and reducing your consumption of processed foods will make you immediately feel so much better.
Now, onto the good stuff! I am sharing with you a suggested meal plan guide that you can tweak to your tastes. This is no deprivation diet: You'll eat three meals and two snacks daily. What you choose to eat during each meal is completely up to you!
I am also sharing a basic list of healthy protein, starch and fat sources that you can begin adding into your diet.
Lastly here are a few tips to get you started on your health journey:
•Drink at least 1-1.5 gallons of water/day
•Limit the intake of added sugar – (even in your coffee). Read the labels! Even “sugar free” options are still sugar. You body processes them the same way
•In general, try to practice “clean eating” basically, if you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t eat it.
•Choose one day of the week to prepare your meals/snacks ahead of time! Grill chicken/cut veg- gies/hard boil eggs, etc. and put them in Baggies or Tupperware so that you don't put yourself in a bind with no healthy options!
It is you vs. yourself and we are here for you in every possible way to help you succeed. Ask questions, be open and honest and give it your ALL!
