WHAT ARE FLEX DAYS?
- Flex Days are a modified eating plan to provide you an option for balancing your lifestyle and weight loss while in Phase 1.
- Flex Days are a set of guidelines, not rules, so there is no such thing as cheating on Flex Days.
- The closer you stay to the Flex Days guidelines, the more fat your body will burn. The more you stray from the guidelines, the less you will lose.
Build your meals in the order and proportion of this food pyramid.
Flex Day details below.
Flex Days Food Guidelines:
- Hours for eating 12pm – 8pm.
When eating past 8pm, allow at least 2 hours before bedtime.
- Around 12pm have a Granny Smith apple or 1/2 grapefruit. The chemistry helps reduce the impact of incorporating Flex Days.
- Start your meals with a salad or vegetable. Then enjoy your proteins and carbohydrates.
- Unlimited vegetables.
- 2 cups fruit.
- Light proteins e.g., poultry, fish, eggs, edamame, chickpeas, lentils, etc.
Limit red meat to 1x per week; it takes 3-5 days to digest.
- Remember, carbs such as bread, pasta and desserts are for tasting, not feasting. Enjoy them as side dishes rather than as your main course.
- Oil in moderation, no frying.
- NO vinegar.
