What I Eat in a Day


So here’s an example of a normal day for me (not currently because I am on my pre-holiday diet).

Pre-Holiday Diet and Exercise Routine

  
‘No carbs before Marbs’ or rather ‘No carbs before Barbs’ as that’s where I’m off to (Barbados).

I’m a very goal orientated and motivated person and prefer to work under pressure. If I gave myself a goal that was in 6 months time I might not work as hard during the first few months because 6 months is just too far away for me.

I also like to push myself and, whilst I strive to have a healthy bod all year round I don’t think there’s anything wrong with becoming a little stricter and working harder for a special event or holiday- I want to look my best.

So with just under 4 weeks before my holiday (25 days- not that I’m counting or anything) I thought I’d up the exercise and cut the crap in my diet to really see what my body is capable of.

14 Things Every Girl Needs to Remember About Losing Weight

1. It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint-

Weight-loss takes time.
Let me tell you right now and save you years of trying shit, fad diets like I have, THEY DON’T WORK. Juice cleanses, detox teas, diet pills, wraps and ridiculous bone crushing corsets might work in the short term, but you can’t keep that shit up. It’s simply not sustainable (and not good for your body). So learn from mine and millions of others women’s mistake that the only way to lose weight is to eat healthy food you enjoy and move your body on the daily.

Poached Eggs with Mashed Avocado and Garlic Tomatoes

I created this little bad boy today and this particular creation is actually inspired/dedicated to my brother’s because they love a good poached egg.

It’s the kind of thing I’d probably have at the weekend when I don’t have to gulp it down and rush off to work but it only takes about 15 mins to prepare so you might fancy it during the week.

This is also a super healthy meal; high protein (21g), good fats and slow burning carbs (including 19th of dietary fibre) and some veg too!

So, how’d ya make it?

7 Day Healthy Eating Meal Plan with Recipes

I have created this great meal plan to help you reach your health and weight loss goals easily, whilst enjoying what you eat. Healthy food isn’t and shouldn’t be boring! Wherever possible I have tried to make it easier and cheaper for you by turning evening meals into different lunch time meals the next day. I have also made sure each lunch time meal can be eaten cold (incase you work somewhere that you cannot cook or reheat your food) I know, I’m really thoughtful like that.

For each morning snack have some fruit, I would suggest some berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries) or perhaps an apple. I would also suggest having your fruit with some natural, low fat yoghurt and a little cinnamon (boosts metabolism).

For each afternoon snack I would suggest some veggie sticks (carrot, cucumber, celery) with a healthy dip such as my Red Pepper Houmous

If your STILL hungry in between meals (leave 2-3 hours between meals- including snacks), have a glass of water and wait 30 mins. If after that you’re still hungry, have some more fruit or veggies.

If you’re still hungry in the evenings after your dinner, I’d recommend trying one of my sweet treats such as Peach Froyo or Vegan Ice cream

Sunday evening is your cheat meal- I think it’s better to have it at the end of the week as a treat. Have whatever you fancy- it can be as naughty as you like! Cheat meals work because many people try and eat only healthy foods and they end up binge eating for days because it’s just too hard. Having a cheat meal allows you to enjoy some unhealthy food without the guilt. Then, when Monday comes around, you get back on track with your healthy eating. One bad meal won’t make you fat! However it is a MEAL, not a whole DAY of eating bad foods.
