MEN's HEALTH: Meal Plan

Hi, Next Post for today. Something Worthy to be share to all the bloggers. How to loose your belly by just taking guided meal plan?? Hate to count your calories everyday?? and also thinking about your loss weight program. Well, here some tips i taken from Men's health: "The Belly OFF;Meal Plan" which is guaranteed to loose your weight.

Belly Off! Snacks

At 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., pick one of these snacks:
- Stonyfield fruit-flavored yogurt
- 2 sticks low-fat string cheese


Bowl of oatmeal: 1 cup instant oatmeal, unsweetened, with 20 blueberries

Piece of fruit: A medium apple, banana, or orange

Breakfast beverage: An 8 oz. glass of unsweetened orange juice, 1 percent milk, or a pint of coffee (that's a grande) with 1 sugar and 1 individual packet of cream. (Save yourself 27 calories by substituting calorie-free sweetener and a drop of skim milk.)

Turkey sandwich: 3 deli slices of turkey breast on whole-wheat bread with lettuce, tomato, and 1 tsp. Dijon mustard

Tuna sandwich: 1 can tuna, drained, mixed with 3 tsp. Dijon mustard on whole-wheat bread

PB&J sandwich: Peanut butter and easy-on-the-jelly on whole-wheat bread

Handful of almonds: 24-28 nuts

Heaping portion of green vegetable: An individual frozen package or normal-sized can of peas, green beans, or spinach

1 glass wine or beer: A 6 oz. glass of wine or a bottle of beer. Don't go nuts, here: Extra calories from alcohol can ruin your weight-loss plans

Seared steak: 1 medium New York strip steak, seared

Chicken breast: Boneless, skinless chicken breast, grilled (George Foreman or otherwise) with 1 tsp. BBQ sauce


Eaten your share of Belly Off! meals for the day, but hankering for more food? Don’t fall of the wagon, and don’t lose hope. Here are some strategies that can help you stick to the plan, as well as a few extra foods you can grab, guilt-free:

Go crazy with carrots:Learn to love carrot sticks—celery, too. Eat about as many you want. The high fiber content will help you feel full before you eat enough to ruin your daily diet.

Add a snack: If you’re of a certain size, our plan is actually a few calories too few. Add ONE extra snack—another yogurt or a pair of string cheeses—to pump it up.

Soak up your hunger: 15 to 20 minutes before dinner, soak up 2 teaspoons of olive oil with half a slice of bread and eat it to control your appetite. Olive oil stimulates the release of cholecystokinin, a gut hormone that signals the brain to stop eating.

Nuts before lunch: The almonds in your Belly Off! lunch have a similar effect. Grab half your handful 30 minutes before you eat the full meal. You’ll feel fuller, faster.

Very easy and simple to understand but the question here; Can We keep up with this healthy diet plan??. For me, I'm still in doubt whether i can cope for 2 @ 3 weeks BUT it's worthy to "make a try". Why say "no" for Your Health purpose. Thinking Forward!!! :p
