“Hello” to all my “Curvy Fit” ladies! Many of you have or will purchase the “Full Body Curve Down” Workout DVD. In the DVD, I mentioned the best way to acheive a shapely “Powerhouse Physique” is maintaining a healthy diet. The diet regimen that I have recommended to my clients for many years has given them great success. I hope this regimen works for you and of course, if you have any questions feel free to reply to the post. In short, I wanted to give a very “BASIC” nutritional regimen that is easy for many people to follow. I also use this nutritional guide and it has given me much successs. Check it out below:
Prior to your workout, please make sure you have something to eat. Give your body at least an hour and 30 minutes to digest the food. If you are planning to eat something small try a banana, yogurt or nutri-grain bar.
Your day should consist of 1 big HEALTHY breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner (4) meals a day. You should eat every 3-4 hours.
Breakfast:Your breakfast should consist of a protein (eggs, turkey bacon/sausage) and a complex carbohydrate (fruit, whole grains & wheat, or oatmeal), if you do not have time to make a big breakfast then opt for cereal, try Fiber One, Kashi, or Special K and a fruit preferably a banana or a fruit
Lunch: Your lunch should consist of a whole wheat wrap, salad or soup, ( stay away from a ton of salt, sugar, and no mayo or cheese)
Snack: Whole grain bar, a FIST FULL of unsalted almonds, or yogurt ( a healthy snack)
Dinner: Opt for a protein (Chicken, Fish, etc and vegetables( carrots, corn, etc.) also add a green (spinach, peas, legumes, asparagus, etc)
- No white bleached or starched (Anything) Pasta, Bread, or Rice, instead incorporate Whole Grain and %100 Whole Wheat
- No heavy complex carbohydrates (pasta, rice, bread, potato) after 6pm because they take the longest to digest and tend to make losing weight a LONGER PROCESS.
- No FRIED FOODS PERIOD, instead opt for baked, sauteed, or steamed.
- No Sweets or Candy
- No Sugary drinks or soda opt for (8-12 glasses of water a day, vitamin/seltzer/sparkling water, all natural juice drinks) Artificial drinks have TONS of refined sugar.
