So often we are told that in order to lose weight, fat and get that six pack, you have to give up everything that you love in life to eat. That is farthest from the truth. Yes, watching how much you eat can make a difference but it is not necessary to eat out of a card board box. Here are some suggestions to get you started.
On Monday have a smoothie for breakfast made with 1 cup of 1% milk, 2 tbls low fat vanilla yogurt, Â¾ cup of instant oatmeal microwaved in warm water, 2 tsp of peanut butter, 2 tsp choc whey powder and 6 ice cubes crushed. This will make 2 8 oz servings so you can have one for later.
Have a snack of all the raw veggie you can handle with 2 tsp of peanut butter. Then it is time for lunch. Grab a sandwich on whole grain bread of turkey or roast beef wash it down with 1 cup of 1% milk and an apple for dessert.
Time for snack #2. Enjoy 1 oz of almonds with 1 [email protected] cups of berries. For dinner, enjoy Mas Macho Meatballs made from 1 lb of extra lean ground beef, Â½ cup crushed saltine crackers, 1 lg onion diced, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 tbls of flaxseed or whey powder, 1 16 oz jar of tomato sauce, 4 shoel wheat hoagie rolls and Â½ cup of mozz cheese. Mix all ingredients together except for sauce and brown over med heat. Drain and add tom sauce, scoop onto rolls and add cheese.
Snack number 3 is that extra smoothie.
This is a typical day. As you can see, the food is great, fresh and not out of a box. You are getting a well balanced diet from all of the food groups and still staying within your means.
