Our culture consumes WAAAAAAY too many carbohydrates and so we are seeing the effects of that at our waist lines. We need more protein, less carbs and more healthy fats. Remember that fruit and vegetables are carbs too just like bread, rice, pasta and potatoes. However, eating the RIGHT carbs together with lean protein and healthy fats yields great results. Here is an example of how I recommend you to eat. You will add in your other AdvoCare supplements if you are on the Cleanse Phase or Max Phase around this schedule.
7:00 Spark and 3 Catalyst
8:00 Meal Replacement Shake
10:00 1 boiled egg, 1/2 apple, 6 almonds
12:00 Salad with 3-4 ounces of chicken and 1 boiled egg (if you prefer not to eat the yolk, eat 2 egg whites instead) and balsamic vinaigrette with olive oil.
3:00 3 Catalyst (Spark as needed)
3:30 2 ounces of tuna, 1/2 tsp mayo, other half of apple (or celery sticks with raw no sugar peanut or almond butter)
6:30 3-4 ounces of lean protein (chicken, turkey, fish, steak etc.) 1-2 cups steamed, grilled or sautéed veggies. NO fruit after 3:30pm. Be sure to have some kind of healthy fat for dinner too (olive oil, olives, avocado, raw nuts, seeds)
9:30-10:00pm 1 ounce of lean protein (such as 1 boiled egg, 1 ounce deli meat, 1 ounce left over chicken) 1/2 cup of cucumber slices and 1 tsp slivered almonds.
At EVERY meal and EVERY snack you MUST have a lean protein and healthy fat. You will not lose weight unless you are eating more protein and fueling your lean muscle mass which is your engine for burning body fat.
MEN: You may add 1-2 ounces of protein at each meal and each snack based on your size and muscle mass.
