Healthy Meals

Every living cell in your body is made from the food that you eat so eat like your life depends on it because it does!

 

If you consistently eat junk food then you will have junk cells and a junk body. This does not mean that you will be fat or overweight but it means you will have poor quality cells and you will be at higher risk of illness and disease. Eat good quality organic, real whole foods from the earth and lean cuts of meat & organic dairy with no antibiotics or hormones to give your cells the best quality nutrients to build a strong healthy body.

 

Here is a meal plan with a lot of variety so you have options. This meal plan does include meat, dairy and eggs so if you are a vegetarian then you will have to make substitutions to satisfy your needs.

 

If you have a favorite meal or snack you can have that for 3-4 days you do not have to change your meals every day.  You also have to adjust for your own personal likes, dislikes and food allergies. I recommend using all organic foods, farm raised, grass fed and local farmers with no antibiotics, hormones, pesticides or chemicals. To have healthy cells and a healthy body you must eat quality food.

 

Meal Plan based on 1500-2000 calories a day.

Adjust portion sizes so your calorie total fits within your personal daily caloric intake.

Optimal Health Supplement Recommendations

 

1) Multivitamin- I recommend an all natural wholefood multivitamin.  Your vitamins should come from Whole Foods.  If the label does not say that it is coming from whole foods then it may be synthetic which is chemically made in a lab and the nutrients do not come from food. Your Vitamins should be ISO9000 certified and NSF Certified. Your Multivitamin should be free of any additives. 

 

All vitamins come from fresh whole, raw foods so the closest to the original form is the best quality for your body. I recommend to juice green vegetables or take a green supplement like Macrogreens.

 

Macrogreens & other green supplements often have the nutritional value of 3-5 servings of fruits and vegetables. They are simply dehydrated fruits & vegetables but read the labels to make sure there are no additional ingredients.

 

2) Probiotics- are healthy bacteria that help protect the stomach, help you with digestion of food and help you strengthen your immune system.  Probiotics are live healthy bacteria that naturally occur in milk and other foods but are destroyed through pasteurization. The healthy bacteria in your stomach gets destroyed when you take antibiotics and you must replace it to strengthen your immune system. (I recommend Bio-K or Udo’s  Probiotics or Kombucha but there are also other great sources)

 

3) Enzymes – enzymes come from plants and are used to help you digest your food and absorb nutrients. (I recommend Udo’s Enzymes or Wholesome Fast Food)

 

4) Omega-3 Fatty Acid – Essential Fat 80% of American’s are deficient. Necessary for proper brain function, building block to many hormones, oxygen transport system to the muscle cell.  (Carlson’s Brand Fish Oil or Udo’s Oil 3.6.9 Blend)

 

 

5 Nutrition Tips

 

1) Prepare Your Meals at Home: Prepare your meals at home and bring them with you. You will be less stressed out and you will save time and money if you plan your meals in advance and bring them with you.

 

2) 3 Servings of Green Vegetables a Day: Have 3 servings of green vegetables a day. Greens help alkalinize the body which means they help strengthen your immune system & decrease your risk of illness and disease. They are also loaded with fiber to help you with digestion and elimination. Greens are also loaded with minerals, vitamins, nutrients and phytonutrients to help all of your cells function at their best.  Green Smoothies and Green Juices can help you increase your green vegetable intake.

 

3) Water: Half your body weight and drink that number in ounces of water a day. If you weight 150lbs you should be drinking 75oz which is about 4-5 small 16oz bottles. Your body weight is 60% water and every living cell in your body requires water to function. Chronic dehydration can lead to acid reflux, heart burn, constipation, poor digestion, headaches, migraines, arthritis, joint pain and much more.

 

4) Green Tea: Have 2-3 Cups of Green Tea a day.  There are antioxidants in Green tea called Catechins that slow down and stop the growth of cancer cells. Many research studies have shown that 2-3 cups of green tea a day can decrease your risk of all cancers. Green Tea also helps alkalinize the body and strengthen the immune system.

 

5) Listen To Your Body: We are all biogenetically unique which means one meal plan does not serve all. One man’s food can be another man’s poison. If you eat a particular type of food and you feel fatigued, bloated, break out in a rash or have indigestion then listen to your body and adjust your meals. Healthy eating is also a journey to find what foods work best with your body chemistry so you can function at your best.  

 

Healthy Living is a choice you make every day and it’s a way of life!

 

 

You can do it!

  1. This is the best opportunity for me to get fit and look good in my dresses in which I never wear.
    I would love to be in the Tyler Perry new movie. If I reach my gold and get healthy I may get the
    opportunity to cast while on the Cruz with TJMS.

  2. Jenny Im a former basketball referee for 20 yes, thought I was in great shape 6’3 and 210. Wow reading your 7 day meal plan shows me I’ve been eating unhealthy for years. I’

  3. After reviewing the 7 days meal plan Im still concern with substitution. If I can’t have a certain food or I don’t like a certain food there is no provision for substitute. Also portion size.

    Thanks

  4. Hi there, firstly thank you for the information above. I would love to have been a part of the 6 week challenge with Queen Latifah but I live in New Zealand. I am therefore doing a challenge of my own as I hope to lose 10 Kg by the end of October. I am 44 years old, is this too ambitious? I started taking my body and my health seriously in October 2009. Since then I have lost about 20 kgs which works out to about 4 kgs a year. I am happy that it has stayed off because thats what I want but am getting anxious to lose quicker now and then keeping it off. As per your suggestion, I have recognised what foods are not good for my body but need advice on economical ways of toning, sculpting and remaining fit. As much as I would love gym membership, it can be costly. Look forward to hearing from you. Ps. Regards to QF, she is great encouragement to us big gals!
