    Mix and match to get variety of proteins, fruits,and veggies!!

    Water upon rising is key (I add lemon to mine – optional)8oz.

    BREAKFAST: 1 bowl of sugar free cereal with low fat milk(fiber cereal) and add fresh fruit (berries or some banana) any kind.

    Lunch: Lettuce salad with all your favorite fixings and a low fat dressing.

    I add one of these: a can of tuna or a can of chicken or a large egg for protein to my salad.
    If you need to have more to fill yourself with the salad you can eat along with it either a baked potato or yam or substitute a cup of soup
    on the side. Sometimes the salad will be enough. Whatever you need.

    Do the same thing for dinner

    Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.

    Snack in between with fresh fruit as needed.. don’t exceed 5 in a day

    You will have variety and lose weight the good way.

    I also take a good multiple vitamin/mineral.

    You will lose on an average 2-4 pounds a week.


    If you have any health conditions, check with your doctor.
