Your 12 Week Challenge - Week

Week 1: 12 Week Challenge

Are your nutrients balanced?
Ensuring you have the right balance of carbohydrates, protein and good fat in your diet for each of your meals and mid meals is the most important thing you can do to support your fat loss goals.

Common mistakes are:
· Eating too much carbohydrate and not enough protein for breakfast
· Not eating enough salad and vegetables at lunch and dinner
· Not eating a protein rich snack such as a Go Natural Nut Bar OR cheese and crackers late in the afternoon
· Drinking too much coffee and tea throughout the morning

This week, to make sure your nutrients are balanced:
1) Choose eggs or baked beans with grain toast for breakfast or a small cup of wholegrain cereal with low fat milk + 1 teaspoon LSA mix.
2) Make sure you have a balanced snack of yoghurt and fruit, cheese and crackers, a skim Latte or a nut bar for morning and afternoon tea.
3) Add a vegetable soup or salad to your lunch sandwich or leftovers.
4) Snack on a carrot or apple on the way home.
5) Stick to plain meat and vegetables for dinner Monday – Thursday.
