Portion Control: DON’T eat nothing all day so you can eat everything at dinner. This will cause you to binge and WAY over eat. INSTEAD try eating healthy foods during the day, keep carbs low, but fill up on protein and veggies.
DON’T try and “burn” off these extra calories by doing endless cardio. INSTEAD incorporate 15 minutes of hit circuit training post workout and utilize these carbs to make some new PRs in the gym.
Breakfast: Eggs sautéed with spinach, peppers, garlic and onions
Lunch: Chicken salad with a homemade vinaigrette
