Motivational Mondays: Diet Plan for the Ladies

            Do you ever need just a little more motivation or advice on your diet to kickstart the new you? Well, today I’m going to write up a generic diet plan for women that is easy to follow and give you some tips as well.  If you are looking for little things to cut out of your diet but you’re not exactly sure what, the first place to start looking is if you’re eating fast food and then next is how much breads and pasta’s are you eating each day?  Your body can handle almost anything you throw its way as long as it’s in moderation and you are working out on a consistent basis.  The following diet plan does not need to be followed to the T everyday without a cheat day here and there.  You should follow the diet for at least three days in a row before a cheat day, the longer you go without cheat days the faster you will get results.

 Meal 1: should be eaten between 7:00-8:00 AM

4-5 (20-25g protein) egg whites scrambled with veggies or plain, no cheese OR 1 scoop of Protein Powder. 1 Cup (27g carbs.) of Oatmeal, use water instead of milk and 1 tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter can be added for flavor.

Meal 2: 10:00-11:00 AM

3 ounces (23-25g protein) of lean Steak or lean Chicken Breast.  1 Cup of Asparagus.  ½ Cup (22.5g carbs.) of Brown or White Rice.

Meal 3:  1:00-2:00 PM

3 ounces (23-25g protein) of lean Chicken Breast.  1 Cup of Broccoli.  ½ Cup (13-14g carbs.) of Sweet or Regular Potatoes.

Meal 4:  4:00-5:00 PM

3 ounces (23-25g protein) of lean Chicken Breast. 1 Cup of Corn.  ½ Cup (22.5g carbs.) of Brown or White Rice.

Meal 5:  7:00-8:00 PM

4 ounces (22.77g protein) of vacuum sealed low sodium Tilapia or Salmon.  1 cup Spinach Leaves.  ½ cup (13-14g carbs.) of Sweet or Regular Potatoes.

Meal 6:  10:00-11:00 PM

4-5 (20-25g protein) egg whites scrambled or 1 Scoop of Protein Powder.

1 Tablespoon of natural peanut butter can be eaten 2-3 times a day to help hold off cravings or if you are going to cheat, a good healthy snack is rice cakes.  I like the flavored rice cake minis the best, try to only eat 1 serving at a time.  Remember most foods are not too bad for your body in moderation if you give in to bad foods.  This diet plan may seem like a lot of meals to cook and that is why New Vision Nutrition is here for all your meal preparation needs!  The more consistent you are in your diet the more consistent you will start being in all aspects of your life!
