As I mentioned in a previous post, I hired a nutrition coach.
When I first saw the meal plan, I was worried I was going to be hungry as it was a bit less calories then I was used too. But on day one, I struggled so hard to get every meal in. My new macros have me eating a ton of protein – which helps you stay more satiated.
I also had very minimal processed foods in my meal plan. She wanted me to reset my body and once I learn to get all the right macros in, then I can bring back other foods like cereal and protein bars.
While I won’t disclose what my macros are, I’m going to share with me what my current eats look like!
But first, coffee!Once I started measuring things out, I realized I was using almost three tablespoons of creamer per coffee. Typically I have three cups, so that was a shock to me. I thought I was using about 1-2. She wanted me to cut down my creamer intake, so right now I’m only having 1 to 1.5 tablespoons per cup.
Meal #1: Berries, Egg Whites, Oats & Hemp Seeds + MORE Coffee.I’ll be honest, I wasn’t too thrilled about having oatmeal again after not having it for over a year for breakfasts. But of course, I trusted my coach. Now I actually look forward to them and it fills me up quite well!
Meal #2: Lean Ground Turkey, Jasmine Rice & Avocado.I’ve never had ground turkey and avocado mixed together so it honestly sounded weird to me. But this meal is literally my favorite! I look forward to it everyday and it’s super filling. For the ground turkey, I just use the garlic and herb blend Mrs. Dash seasoning.
Meal #3: Dave’s Killer Bread w/ Eggs Whites & Avocado.I mean who doesn’t love avocado toast?
Since high cholesterol runs in my genes, I need to watch my whole egg intake. Hence why you’ll notice more egg whites in my diet. Plus it feels easier on my stomach with all my IBS issues. This meal is my second favorite and sometimes I’ll save it for dinner versus lunch.
Last cup of java for the day.Meal #4: Turkey Sausage, Potatoes & Green Beans. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know this is one of my favorite meals. I’m so glad that I am able to fit it in. If I can’t have some of my favorite foods on a meal plan, then it’s a no go for me.
Meal #5: Salad w/ Quinoa, Chickpeas, Egg, Hemp Seeds, Lettuce & Tomatoes. This meal is tough as I’m not always craving salad. I try to save it for when I’m most hungry. I asked her to keep the meal but I may have her switch it next week.
Meal #6: Greek Yogurt w/ Berries, Pumpkin & Hemps Seeds.Y’all know I typically do my Greek yogurt for breakfast.
Lately it’s become dessert. I’ve been enjoying it a lot and if I’m craving chocolate, I add a little cocoa powder.
And there you have it, my current “what I eat in a day.”
While weight loss is not my goal (but I know it’s inevitable), I’ve lost about 5lbs in 1.5 weeks on the meal plan. I am still doing my HIIT + Strength E-Guide in conjunction with this meal plan for optimal results.
It’s one of the best workout programs I’ve ever put together (in my opinion of, course;).
Definitely give it a look if you’re looking to change up your exercise routine. The workouts are all modifiable and you’ll never workout for more than 36 minutes!
