Meal Plan: Week Two

As mentioned last week, Michelle has made changes in her eating habits, and has seen changes in her body. However, she still needs improvements in her behavior to make her transformation permanent. We’re working with her on balancing her nutrients in her meals. By getting protein in almost every meal she creates a feeling of satiety throughout the day, and never allows herself to get really, really hungry. This way of eating stokes her metabolic fire because blood-sugar levels stay more consistent, and more body fat is released.

Michelle has been struggling with two things: variety in meals and being too strict on herself. So we have started creating a categorized list of good food choices used for meal creation and to make grocery shopping easier. Now we need to work on behavioral changes that will make eating more fun and reward her for achievements. We added a category, that we call her ‘cheat list.’ This is her fun category of foods or meals that she can save for her one day of the week that she can cut loose and indulge in a meal that is not so healthy. There is a difference between eating for pleasure and eating for survival. Every once in a while, you need to eat for pleasure so that eating for survival is more rewarding. If Michelle can master this state of mind, she will achieve her desired transformation. Thanks for supporting Michelle and the other transformation contestants!
