Starting Template


Some Things To Help

Good template to use as an idea how to stay on task  All vitamins and minerals are in a proper diet. 

the key is meal prepping so you aren't figuring out what to do every day   

Also soy or almond milk, decaf teas, and juice NOT FROM CONCENTRATE are fine for beverages with meals 

If trying to lose or gain weight and /or having time constraints there are decent meal replacement shakes that you can substitute a meal with or include with a meal if trying to gain weight. Just ensure it is a meal replacement shake vs protein shake. Extra protein is only needed for those injured or trying to bulk up with muscles. If drinking a protein shake you still need to eat and cannot replace a meal with a protein shake, it has to specifically be a meal replacement shake that has a well balanced amount of nutrients.
