I have a few friends at work who are following this guide and have seen GREAT results!! One of my friends said she thinks of it as a game to try to incorporate all of these foods into her diet daily. It does take a lot of planning and may seem challenging at first, but the goal is to ultimately make this type of eating a lifestyle.
Here’s how it works…you can eat any food on this list (according to the listed serving size)….But in the following serving amounts:
Proteins- 3x day
Starches- 3x day
Veggies- 4x day
Fruits (before 3 p,m)- 3x day (one must be an orange)
**Sugar-free Jello 3x a week at night
I like this plan because it incorporates REAL, healthy foods and gives your body the vitamins and nutrients it needs. The high fiber foods keep you feeling full and promote healthy digestion.
I remind myself when I am making a healthy choice (and everyone else around me is eating JUNK!) that I may be helping my body fight off future illnesses or diseases. Food is fuel and can be the best medicine (and prevention) if we use it correctly, as intended.
