What I am loving about Nutrition to the Max ( the full nutrition guide that comes with the workout) is that it isn't a diet or a fad. It's based on the concept of portion eating which is a skill that, once learned, can be used all the time.
I also love that the foods in the guide are surprisingly simple BUT the guide also explains the concept of balance. Hey, we all need that glass of vino from time to time, right?
Setting yourself up for Nutritional Success
1. The first thing to do is determine which meal plan to follow. Plan A or Plan B.
Plan A < 150 lbs
Plan B > 150 lbs
2. Then using the meal plan you were given, you use the daily food chart to see what foods you are allowed to eat each day and how many servings.
3. Eat 5 meals a day! Breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks! Sometimes I sneak a little extra in there. Green tea is a great evening option and popcorn is also a great way to cut back on the cravings!
The Nutritional Guide provides a ton of examples to keep things spiced up- even your water will be kicked up a notch! And yay for not having to give up my morning cup of coffee! More recipes available here!
