I discovered the perfect meal plan to melt away stubborn belly fat.
It’s so freakin good and anyone can do it.
I’ve never shared this before so buckle up.
Here’s how it works …
Your first meal needs to be 1 hour after you wake up.
You can have some water and coffee before then.
Meal 1 – 2 eggs, 100g of egg whites, 1 cup of oats, 100g of berries, and any veggies you like
The reason this works well is because we front load our carbs which gives us more of an opportunity to burn them off throughout the day.
After your meal, go for a 10 minute walk.
Meal 2 – 4-6oz of wild caught salmon, 1 cup jasmine white rice, and 1 cup of greens
We have to get our omega 3’s in and this will also be the last meal with carbs.
Meal 3 (snack) – 1 cheese stick and 1 oz of nuts
Meal 4 – big ass salad with grilled chicken, olive oil, and loads of veggies
Incorporate a variety of different colors into your salad.
Meal 5 – lean protein and veggies
Make sure your last meal is 2-3 hours before bed.
This meal plan will help your body tap into stubborn body fat and melt it right off.
Ok, ready to implement?
Go get it.
Alright, not so fast.
Do you see the problem with this ‘perfect’ meal plan?
There’s nothing devastatingly wrong with those meals. Aside from my slight sarcasm about needing to eat carbs early to burn them off and making sure you eat a few hours before bed.
In fact, it probably could work for a decent amount of people.
BUT … can anyone actually follow through with that for any considerable length of time??
Because you’re not a freakin robot. You’re a human.
What about when you go out to dinner with your family? What about when you want a drink or two? How about when you get tired of those foods and want something different? What about when you’re feeling extra hungry one day?
The perfect meal plan doesn’t exist because it doesn’t teach you anything.
And it’s not sustainable.
Now imagine taking that same concept above … only reduce the calories to 800-1000, replace the whole, quality food sources with soy-based, processed crap, and remove all exercise from your life …
And you’ve got Optavia lol.
It should be abundantly clear why that will never work for anyone long term in the history of ever.
The good news is … you don’t need to waste time or money on meal plans or fad diets that don’t work.
You don’t need anyone telling you exactly what to eat on a daily basis.
It’s way simpler than that.
You can gradually improve the quality of your food choices over time (less processed, more whole).
You can prioritize protein and veggies at each meal and incorporate carbs and fats to your preference and needs.
You can drink more water than anything else.
You can move your body in ways you enjoy.
You can pick up some weights 2-5x/week.
You can find ways to recharge your batteries and prioritize sleep.
And, most importantly, you can do all of that without needing to be perfect.
Consistency is the number 1 reason why most people struggle. But it’s not because they can’t be consistent …
It’s because they don’t know how to fail.
Learning how to fail is the single greatest skill you can acquire.
How quickly do you turn the page? What is the internal dialogue that happens when you make a poor decision? How soon do you exit the negative feedback loop?
Those answers will determine your success.
Everyone wants to look for the perfect meal plan or the perfect way of eating.
It doesn’t exist.
Trying to find it often leads to more binges, more self sabotage, and more frustration.
Gradually upgrade your choices over time in a way that’s sustainable AND enjoyable.
You can actually fall in love with this process.
Correction: you SHOULD fall in love with this process.
If you’re not, let’s fix that.
