How to follow the eating plan
On Waking Up
After waking up and starting with our eating plan, eat one of our breakfast recipes. It boosts the energy needed throughout the day, as well as provide the body with enough nutrients and Protein for the muscles to start the day. For people that struggle to eat in the morning we recommend to drink one of our liquidized recipes. Consuming something in the morning is very important as it will help with the bodies metabolism, fat burning, muscle strength, energy, overall health and so much more. Breakfast is really the most important meal of the day. Drinking a glass of water with your breakfast will also help your body to absorb the nutrients better.
10 Am Snack
Choose one fruit and one protein at every snack time, which should always be eaten together. Never eat fruit without protein. Don’t over eat on fruit as it does contain sugar (luckily a natural source of sugar, but sugar still stays sugar). See our list fruits and protein that can be eaten together or choose one of our snack recipes.
12 – 1 pm Lunch
At lunch time, one of our Lunch Recipes. If time is an issue either prepare the lunch the previous day / night or eat a fruit with a protein. Eating the lunch recipe is healthier than the Fruit & Protein, but eating a fruit & Protein is healthier than eating nothing. This can be enjoyed by 10am or at lunch time daily.
3 – 4pm Mid Afternoon Healthy Snack
Enjoy another snack from our snack recipe list or a fruit & protein, to complete the last part of the day. Avoid consuming any caffeine after 4pm as it may cause you to be up all night.
Healthy Dinner (Before 6pm)
Another important part of our eating plan is dinner. Eating your dinner normally is important and you should include as much vegetables as you can. This can be grilled, cooked, steamed vegetables or a salad. If you go with a Chicken breast remember 200g are equal to 25g Protein. You can also try meat such as a palm size of Ostrich Steak with zero fat, which is equal to 27-30g protein.
You can also try a Tin of Tuna or Tuna salad which is about 28g of protein, 200g Salmon that is 25g protein or something else you are able to make. You can also go with an omelette of 3 egg whites and 1 yellow for 15g protein.
It is quite important to avoid overeating during dinner by remaining full and not blown up. This is because you are about to retire for the night, which means working out to burn the calories you have eaten will not be done again until tomorrow. Most importantly, avoid sleeping hungry as you manage your intake of food.
If you have no idea what to make have a look at our Dinner Recipes.
The Importance of protein powder
As much as you can, try to ensure Protein has found its way in you diet. This is because if you get the recommended intake of protein daily you will be burning a lot more calories than ever before. Protein helps in weight loss as well as muscle gain and ensures you have an overall good health throughout and lose of weight is done in a sustainable manner that does not erode the good results.
Remember you need 1-2 gram protein per kg of weight that you weigh per day for maximum and effective results.
Print the snack list
It is important to print our snack list and keep it close by where you can use it fast everyday such as on your fridge. Also make copies and take one to your desk at work to keep reminding yourself about the things you should eat and when to eat. Do not forget to organize yourself and have different snacks around to interchange from time to time. Nonetheless avoid cracker breads and provita’s.
It is of paramount importance to include fruit and protein in your snacks at the same time. Having a fruit is not enough; it can make you to start feeling very tired as the sugar levels dip. To stabilize, protein is very important and maintaining the Protein-Carbohydrates Ratio is of utmost importance.
Drinking enough water is also non negotiable. This is because water has a way of speeding up the weight loss process, flushing out toxins and suppressing hunger. In case enough water is not drunk the body begins recycling the colon water, affecting your body badly.
