Belly Busters Week 1 & 2

Alrighty! For those of you who said they would be my diet buddies this is week 1 and week 2 of le diet plan. Remember, whoever stays closest to their calorie/day goal and works out the most each week wins bragging rights for the following week!

Rules

  1. Follow this saying “if you aren’t hungry enough to eat an apple you aren’t hungry you are just bored”. I cant tell you how many times this has stopped me from eating crap.
  2. Drink 67% of your weight in water every day. ex. I weigh 134lbs x 67%= 89.78, or 90 oz of water a day.
  3. Always workout on Monday
  4. Work out 3x or more a week for at least 20 minutes
  5. Only drink 1c of coffee a day. If you need caffeine drink tea without sugar or chia fresca. (recipe here)
  6. Drink max 3 alcoholic beverages a week. Really you should drink none, but I love wine so I say 3 is the max haha
  7. Try and avoid sugars, processed foods, junk food, carbonated beverages etc.
  8. If you eat out, pick the healthiest option available.

 

*note* I have found that by cutting out gluten I have cut some pounds. So these meals are designed to limit gluten. Also eat the proportion that corresponds to your calorie intake on the My Fitness Pal app. If you need to add a protein to dinner stick with chicken, fish, or turkey. Avoid meats high in fat. Oh, and it’s kind of a pain in the butt to enter these recipes into the app, but once you do, you can save them. So I will try to recycle the same general meals.

Week 1

There are two versions of week 1. One that starts with a 3 day detox, one that doesnt. If you want to do the detox, just eliminate the first 3 days of the meal plan.
