Did you have a chance to check out yesterday’s post? All of the details on starting your Slow Carb week are included.
One of the biggest challenges to doing the slow carb plan is dealing with carb cravings at the beginning. If you currently crave things like breads, baked goods, chocolate, alcohol and sweets, then I suggest taking a look at doing the 5-day Reset program before you start on the plan. It will help you to curb the cravings and allow you to kick off your healthy eating and weight loss program more easily! Please note: the Reset program is not suitable for pregnant or nursing moms.
Here’s what I ate on Monday (see Sunday’s post for all the prep):
Breakfast (8 am) – scrambled eggs (1 whole egg, 2-3 egg whites) with spices, black bean mix (see Sunday prep) and organic salsa.
Morning vitamins: 2 Multi-mineral, 2 Mega Anti-oxidant, 2 Omega-3, 2 Joint Formula, 2 Vitamin D (1000 mg each) and 1 Proflavanol C100 (grapeseed oil and vitamin C)
Lunch (noon) – Arugula & spinach, quinoa salad (see Sunday prep), grape tomatoes, goat cheese (not feta), ½ avocado, Renee’s Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Afternoon (4 pm) – 1 hard-boiled egg, Fontaine Santé Bean Salad (contains all natural ingredients and no preservatives), 3 slices of old cheddar, mini Diet Coke.
Dinner (8 pm) – Canned tuna or chicken breast for protein. Suggestion, cook 5 chicken breasts and store in the fridge for easy prep for the rest of the week. Stir fry veggies (Green Giant frozen) with red kidney beans. 1 glass of red wine.
Evening vitamins: 2 Multi-mineral, 2 Mega Anti-oxidant, 2 Joint Formula, and 1 Proflavanol C100 (grapeseed oil and vitamin C), 2 Active Calcium Plus
