eats & treats
Thank you for all of your comments on yesterday’s post!! I love all of the motivation and positivity I am getting from all of you regarding my new training plan! I think it’s going to be great. I have seen a lot of “results” pictures on Jamie Eason’s Facebook page and they are incredible. I can’t wait to see what happens. I may even post some photos of my progress…or maybe just make you wait until the end to see my before and after shots! ;)
For those of you curious about the diet, you can read about it here. A day basically consists of 5-6 meals that are high in protein and non-starchy vegetables and low in carbohydrates. One of my typical days will look something like this (for Phase 1):
- Breakfast: oats with protein powder
- Snack: homemade protein bar/pancake, Greek yogurt with fruit, or a protein shake
today's snack: protein pancake + Greek yogurt + pomegranate
- Lunch: a protein (tofu/tempeh/fish) with a starch (brown rice/sweet potato/quinoa) and veggies
- Snack: same as above
- Dinner: same concept as lunch
grilled cod + steamed veggies + 1/2 sweet potato
It really isn’t much of a diet, but more like clean eating. Veggies are unlimited throughout the day, starches aren’t consumed after 7:00pm and fruit is limited to twice a day. I’ve done something similar in the past after reading Tosca Reno’s book, The Eat Clean Diet
. I remember feeling great so I don’t think this will be hard to follow at all! I am going to try my best not to cheat, but I do love my stuffing and it might be making an appearance on Christmas! I don’t think eating extra starches for one day will kill the plan though so I’m not going to stress about it!!
This is going to be a great way for Dean and I to “clean out” or bodies. We have had one too many pizza dates and have been starting to feel run down and gross despite our efforts in the gym. I think diet plays a huge role in how we feel and I am feeling the positive effects already!
There is an awesome giveaway

How many meals do you eat in a day?
What’s your favourite vegetable?? Would you choose it over stuffing?
I like a lot of veggies…but stuffing always wins. I would dive head first into a pool of bready goodness!
