My Eating Plan:

  • Breakfast: oatmeal 2/3 cup, 2 scoops protein powder, 1 tablespoon pure cocoa powder, lots of cinnamon, skim milk 8 oz, tablespoon dried cherries or raisins
  • Lunch and Dinner: nuked green veggies (lots ~1 lb) w/ teaspoon olive oil , balsamic vinegar, and spices (no salt); fish/chicken/meat spiced and nuked/steamed without oil; 2 sweet potatoes nuked with cinnamon, or 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup brown rice.
  • Hot sauce, green tea (5 cups/d), cinnamon, ginger and garlic are my friends.
  • If I get hungry between meals, apples and other fruit (no juice!) are my #1 picks.
