What You’ll Eat
Along with making certain that your meals include a variety of micronutrients and antioxidants, this complete diet plan also focuses on adding lean protein, healthy fats, fiber, and carbohydrates that can give you the energy you need to finish your day strong. Let’s take a look at what you’ll eat when you start our recommended 14-day diet plan.
All fats are not created the same. When losing weight the goal is to lose the unhealthy fatty deposits stored in your body. To help you do this you’ll consume healthy fats on the plan. Healthy fats include plant-based fats and Omega-3 fatty acids. This is done by adding food items like seafood, dairy, lean meats, olive and coconut oil, nuts and seeds, and avocados to your diet.
Your body needs high quality lean protein to function without feeling extreme fatigue. Along with essential B-vitamins, fish and seafood also contain Omega-3 fatty acids. Fish can be cooked in a variety of ways – sautéed in the pan, baked, steamed, and broiled. However, it is important to ensure that you cook the fish in a healthy way. That is, without using breadcrumbs, creamy sauces, or excessive oil for frying.
The plan will recommend a simple dash of olive oil, herbs for seasoning, and lemon juice to add flavor to your meal without loading up the calories. Lean meats like organically-raised or wild Cornish Game hens, duck, chicken, turkey, partridge, goose, lean cuts of pork, beef, and game meat are all great options.
With this diet plan, you can enjoy organic low-fat Greek yogurt, mozzarella and Neufchatel cheeses, milk, and cottage cheese.
Vegetables and Fruits
Fresh vegetables and fruits are the best sources of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Other than starchy white potatoes and corn, you can load up on all vegetables and dark leafy greens. Choose low-glycemic fruits like apples, berries, pears, and melons. While you can eat high-sugar fruits on our 14-day plan, we recommend that you eat them earlier in the day so the absorption of sugar is slow and gradual.
Did you know that most of the nutrients you need can be easily obtained from vegetables, legumes, dried beans, lean meat, and seafood? The plan recommends that you eat grains such as brown rice, barley, bulgur, steel-cut oats, sugar-free cereals, and quinoa.
Nuts and Seeds
Nuts and seeds are chockful of healthy saturated and mono-saturated fats, fiber, and iron. This fat loss diet plan adds almonds, chia seeds, pumpkin and squash seeds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios, sunflower and flax seeds to your meals to keep your flavors fresh and fun. However, keep in mind that you’ll need to steer clear from nuts and seeds that are high in fats such as peanuts, macadamias, and cashews.
Beverages and Desserts
When it comes to drinks and desserts – our 14-day fat burn diet plan has the following strict guidelines:
- Use maple syrup and honey to sweeten tea, coffee, and breakfast cereals.
- Avoid white or brown sugar and any artificial sweeteners.
- Drink only purified water.
