Sample Meal Plan

January 16 2011

I’ve received a few emails this new year asking me about diet and weight loss so I figured I’d post a couple sample meal plans that’ll give people some examples of healthy eating and smarter food choices. It’s recommended to eat 5-6 small meals a day or every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism going and help prevent binge eating. So try to eat your breakfast first thing in the morning and stop eating approximately 3 hours before bed.


We’re currently working on a brand new nutrition section that will be launched in a few months and I’ll be contributing to that regularly, posting meal plans, recipes, cooking tips and more! It’ll also include a calorie counter and food journal so you’ll be able to keep track of the foods you eat which will definitely help keep you more accountable to your goals!
