Oops – I Went Off Plan

Oops – I Went Off Plan

Perhaps the biggest question we get from the Contact Us form has to do with making a mistake or making a poor food choice.  Here are the 2 most common:

1) I ate “bad stuff” or “the wrong things”

2) I went out drinking with friends. What can I do?

The answer is the same for both.  Get back on plan immediately, and don't look back.  Go forward “on plan” and eat correctly.

As long as you are “on plan” 90% of the time, you should do fine.

Thought I would share a little “secret recipe” that has really worked for me.

If I need to jump start myself back in gear after a “hiccup”, here is what I do.  This is just my personal method, but it has had great results.  I have a meal that is very high in fiber and nutrients.  I try to have something very colorful that has the freshest and best looking veggies and fruit.  Here is a meal I had a few days ago that follows this pattern.  Two fresh hard boiled jumbo eggs (still warm with fresh cracked pepper), steamed asparagus (natural diuretic), small amount of steamed broccoli, baby cukes, yellow pepper, orange cherry tomatoes.  Bowl of beautiful raspberries and blackberries (most fibrous fruit).  You can vary the fruits and veggies, and you can substitute with PLAIN grilled chicken or turkey.  I think you can see the pattern here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let us know if you try this and if it works for you.  Take a photo or describe what you had.

    What are the suggested serving sizes for fruits and complex carbs? I’ve seen the protein, veggies, and water portions given. Also what about eggs? Thanks!

    @ Glenda,
    Half a sweet potato can count as your complex carb.

    @ Tiffani,
    For best results, use water. You can add 2-4 Omegas with dinner.

    @ Brandee,
    No banana chips and no dried fruit. Use fresh fruit and vegetables. All snack should contain protein. Hard boiled egg and half an apple or some veggies is good. Or 100 calorie bag of raw almonds.

      You can skip a snack at any tie, but you don’t want to be so hungry that you overeat. In this case you should be fine.

      @ Macy,
      You need to use it for breakfast so that you start your day with protein.

    I cannot swallow the omegaplex gel caps. I tried on the first day and both my breakfast and fiber drink were tryin’ to come back up with all of my attempts to swallow the gel cap. Can I open the gel cap and put it in something? My coach doesn’t seem to know what to do. Are there any pills/vitamins/gel caps that absolutely cannot be broken up and put into something?

    I am on day one and messed up already. I forgot to take the fiber drink this morning. I had it on my calendar to take the pills tonight and just realized its the other way around. Can I still take the fiber drink tonight when I get home or should I wait until tomorrow?
