What type of Foods to Enjoy and What type of Foods you should avoid:

Wake Up

YES– Drink a tall glass of water and take Omega-3 Fish Oil.

NO– Fruit Juices- extremely high in sugar and calories.  Avoid sugary drinks.

 Breakfast (carb heavy)

Yes– Quaker Oatmeal with eggs and fresh fruits.  This combination is high in fiber and protein.

No- Granola.  Although it may seem healthy, most brands are loaded in sugar and fat.  Also avoid fast food or microwavable breakfast sandwiches.


Yes– Salad with Chicken and light balsamic vinaigrette.  Load your plate with 3-4 cups of veggies and 4-5oz of a lean protein.  No one has gained weight by eating vegetables!!

No- Chicken Salad (or tuna) Sandwich with Chips. Be careful when eating premade sandwiches, as they are usually made with high fat mayo. 


Yes: Spaghetti Squash with Veggie Sauce.  Spaghetti squash is an amazing no-carb alternative to pastas.  Serve with lean proteins and veggie-packed sauce.

No: Spaghetti.  Try to avoid carbs at night!
