So many diets come out in spring or summer as that is when most people start to think of the beach, and losing that layer of winter cover, that I have underneath the DIETS SUCK heading, “don’t get ready for summer, get ready for LIFE”. Its simply a way of eating that you need to do for a period of 8 weeks (as this is the period that fat loss is seen at) thus motivating you by result instead of hope. It provides the education allowing you to have a better idea of how your body works and how that food (or fuel) impacts on the perceived result that you are after ie: (fat loss / performance)Can you give us an example of what you would suggest a person to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner with grazing tips as well?
Breakfast – cereal (low sugar content) / egg white omelette / protein energy shake / baked beans on toast
Lunch – chicken and salad / miso soup / Wrap with salad and some lean meat / fish and salad / sushi
Dinner – Lean protein source (fish/chicken/steak/veal etc) with vegetables or salad (1-2 nights per week – rice or pasta dishes)
Snacks – Tuna sachet and low fat cottage cheese / handful of cashews or almonds / low sugar protein bars / low sugar protein shakes
- Learn how to read nutrition labels

- Use energy bars sparingly as they are normally loaded up with sugar
