I did a post back in April about Faster Way To Fat Loss and my experience thus far (read it here ). But I have recently received more messages about what it’s like so I wanted to give you a look into the types of foods I eat during the program, which pretty much has just become a lifestyle now. I’m sharing a break down of foods to fit specific days (low carb & regular carb) and all my favorites in between.
HERE’S THE BREAKDOWN
Low Carb Days = A lot of Healthy Fats & Proteins + minimal Good Carbs
Regular Carb Days = Even amount of Healthy Fats, Proteins, & Good Carbs
Low Macro Days: Half of what you would eat on a Regular Carb Day
Okay here we go… a brief sample of what I would eat in a day for each meal + my favorite food products. Please note, before I was pregnant I wouldn’t break my fast until 12:00 pm to start my eating window and then would stop eating at 6:30 pm. Now with being pregnant, I begin eating at 10:00 am and end at 6:30/7:00 pm. I also cut out the low macro days while pregnant, so I just do the low carb days back to back, and then the regular carb days back to back because you want to make sure you’re getting all the nutrients & calories for baby to grow! FYI, I’m a creature of habit and have always eaten a lot of the same things each day because I tend to not get sick of lunch and breakfast items on repeat.
Pre-eating window: Iced coffee unsweetened with almond milk & then collagen peptides mixed into 12 ounces of water (could also be mixed in to our coffee or smoothie, but I like it in my water). I have both of these every single morning! They’re perfect drinks to get my morning going and give me nutrients without breaking my fast.
10:00 am– Breakfast: RX Bar (generally peanut butter, mixed berry, or blueberry) | Non-dairy yogurt (usually Silk brand) with blueberries, strawberries, and organic granola | Peanut Butter Banana Oat jars | If at a restaurant, I will get an acai bowl, avacado toast, or a veggie omelet |
12:00 pm– Lunch: Tuna or Chicken Salad with gluten free pretzel crips | Tuna, Chicken Salad, or Turkey Breast on english muffin or spinach wrap |Panera Greek Goddess Salad or Spicy Thai with Chicken |Starbucks Smoked Turkey & Swiss Protein Box | Pretty much any salad is a good and easy go-to lunch item for low carb days!
3:30 pm– Snacks: Banana, apple, almonds, celery with peanut butter, hard boiled eggs, pimento cheese/buffalo dip with carrots or celery, homemade pb2 peanut butter powder & banana smoothie, Panera green passion or super fruit smoothie | Homemade guacamole with olive oil, salt, pepper, lime juice, & red onion |
6:00 pm– Dinner: Mexican bowls with black beans, shredded lettuce, avacado, ground turkey or chicken in taco seasoning, diced tomatoes, & a drizzle of chipotle ranch (will add in brown rice if it’s a regular carb day, especially at Chipotle) | Shrimp with veggie noodles, olive oil, crushed red pepper, tomatoes, peas, olive oil, garlic powder, spinach, and parmesan cheese | Chicken Breast with roasted broccoli or cauliflower, brussel sprouts with siracha, carrots, zucchini, pretty much any vegetables | We eat a lot of fish in our house including salmon, lemon cod, and tilapia which are all great for proteins and good fats!
Treats: Dark Chocolate (Lily’s brand chips or Brookside Clusters), vanilla ice cream, or Smart Sweets Sour Candy! I’m a candy lover so the Smart Sweets brand is perfect with their options of swedish fish, sour gummies, sour buddies, and more!
I hope this post helps you get an idea of the foods that are good for Faster Way To Fat Loss! Seeing the items laid out in their categories & learning what is good for specific days really helped me when I was getting started. Now I feel way more educated on nutrition than I ever was before & it’s easier for me to make healthy choices when eating out or in a pinch.
