5 Day Diet FOCUS Plan

Hey Gang!  So I have a confession to make…

I have been eating TERRIBLY for the past 2 weeks.  Not sure what my problem is, but I’ve developed some nasty habits (i.e. adding croutons to salads, snacking on candy, too many simple carbs for breakfast – sticky buns anyone?)  The fact of the matter is, I’ve been making a lot of excuses to eat crappy food, and the excuses have got to stop – today!

While getting ready for my work week,  I put together this 5 day diet FOCUS plan.  Keep in mind that I’m a vegetarian, so if you are trying the plan for yourself and want to add some lean meat to one of the meals, by all means go for it!

Here’s my game plan for the next 5 days (Monday – Friday).  Each day, my diet will look like this:

  • Breakfast – 1 cup black coffee, 2 cups water, fresh fruit w/Greek yogurt OR w/ all natural peanut butter
  • Min morning snack – 1 serving of nuts or trail mix, 1 large glass of water
  • Lunch – Large veggie salad with oil/vinegar dressing (NO croutons, cheese, or meat), 1 large glass of water
  • Afternoon Snack – fresh fruit, 1-2 cups hot green tea
  • Dinner – 1 serving vegetarian protein (black beans, humus, lentils, etc.), 2 servings of veggies

I’ll be tweeting my progress all week, so follow me @GRITbyBrit – wish me luck and have wonderful week!

  2. dude i started something similar about 10 days ago, after letting stress-eating and then vacation-eating get out of hand. i’m really trying to drink a ton of water each day now that i’m in the ICU and it’s so dry, and also trying to eat as many fruits and veggies a day as i can. i find that if i am actually getting in the 5-6 servings that i’m supposed to have, i don’t feel like i have room for the other stuff that’s bad for me. who would’ve thought it? already losing weight and feeling better. you are an inspiration brit! and you look fabulous! 😉

  3. Ugh, I need to get on this too. I have a few business dinners this week that won’t allow me 100% compliance with your plan, but I’ll modify and follow at least something similar 🙂

  4. Sometimes when my routine switches up it takes a while for me to get back on track. It’s great that you’ve got a plan to get back on track……Healthy Journey!
