Here’s how it works:
Choose one breakfast, lunch, and dinner option each day, plus one to two snacks to help keep your appetite in check. You can mix and match any of the breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. Feel free to repeat meals and snacks as often as you’d like.
Indulge in non-starchy vegetables in unlimited quantities at any time throughout the day, particularly when you get hungry between designated meal and snack times. And of course, drink plenty of water during meals and throughout the day.
If you’re keeping track of calories, the meal plan provides between 1,400 to 1,600 calories per day. Men and very active women can increase their protein portions at meals.
Each breakfast option provides no more than 300 calories, incorporates health-boosting produce and follows a “10/4” winning combination, meaning these meals consist of at least 10 grams of satiating protein and at least 4 grams of filling fiber to help jump start your day and keep you energized until lunchtime.
In addition to a tasty meal, sip on a “beverage booster” for an extra shot of morning energy. Choose between a cup (or two) of coffee or tea (black or green). Skip the sugar and enjoy a splash of optional milk (cow’s milk, almond, coconut or soy).
