STEP 3 The Diet
REMEMBER YOUR WHY!!!!!! Keep
it in front of you daily.
1. REPLACE 2 MEALS WITH A
I replaced 2 meals-a-day with a
delicious smoothee...flavors include chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and
others. Usually I substitute for breakfast and lunch....but if I
go out for lunch...I just substitute for supper.
For the first couple weeks I mixed
with 8 oz. of whole milk. Then I started using skim milk. I
didn't notice the difference and I had extra calories available for the
rest of the day.
2. NUTRITIOUS &
DELICIOUS SNACKS AM & PM
Snacks I have used are:
- cheese stick
- 1/2 or whole apple
- 1/2 or whole grapefruit
- oatmeal with fresh strawberries
- fresh baby carrots
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- cereal or fiber bar
- 4 oz. fresh strawberries
- frozen natural fruit bars
- AND the list goes
3. HEALTHY EVENING MEAL
Depending on how many snacks and
how I have mixed my smoothees, I usually have 500-700 calories
available for a good, filling supper.
We have often eaten out at restaurants
that offer low calorie or heart healthy meals. You will be surprised
at how full you can be with some of these heart healthy meals.
You can also
prepare foods you like at home...moderate portions...go easy on fats,
butter, dressings, etc. Try to include vegetables, lean protein
and go easy on the carbs and refined sugars.
