The dishes are easy to prepare, the ingredients are easy to get, they are tasty, you will feel better after a short amount of time, and most of all you will see the effects in the mirror. This is a general nutrition plan which is independent of your age, weight, and your physical condition.

Please don´t forget that in combination with a healthy nutrition you need to follow also a workout plan and do sports a few times a week in order to achieve your goals of getting in shape and lose fat. You need to do both if you want to change your lifestyle permanently.
The following is a sample meal plan, depending on your age, weight, height, and physical condition it changes.
Fat Burning Meal Plan for Women
After waking up try to drink about 0.5 Liter of water, wait for 20 min and start having your breakfast which is:
After more or less two hours and two hours and a half eat your second breakfast which is:
Between one and two slices of whole wheat bread with omelet (2 egg whites and half a yolk)
Before midday you should eat fruit and nuts, that helps your digestion before lunch
2-3 pieces of fruit + a hand full of nuts (not toasted and without salt) + one or two spoons of protein powder!
For lunch, you can eat carbohydrates and if you have the option to choose whole grain or gluten free rice and pasta, much better.
Rice/Pasta/Potato with vegetables or a mixed salad + lean meat or grilled fish (i.e. salmon)
We need to make sure to eat enough proteins, as they help us to build our muscles and speed up our metabolism. I take on a tablet of Omega 3 in the afternoon to ensure that my body is supplied with it during the whole day. In this case, it would be like this….
One nonfat yogurt + 1 Omega 3 tablet
After working out.
We should eat some fruit after working out, in order to increase our insulin levels. Our body has used a lot of his energy and our muscles need to recover. During the first 30 minutes after our workout is the best time as our body absorbs better the nutrients. If you don´t feel hungry, just skip it and wait for your dinner.
A banana (optional)
For dinner, you can have….
Boiled or cooked vegetables (brocolí, kale, cabbage, spinach), with grilled fish or lean white meat (chicken, turkey)
The fibers in the vegetables will help you digesting faster and supplies you with a lot of vital minerals. Fish has proteins and Omega 3, fatty fish like salmon has the highest levels of it. White meat like chicken and turkey is very low in fat and very high in proteins. If you can don´t eat the skin of it as it is pure fat. Don´t use so much fat when you grill, and use high-quality olive oil (cold pressed if possible). Use a paper towel so it absorbs the excess oil in the pan.
Drink a relaxing infusion or tea
Before going to bed drink a glass of skimmed milk together with a spoon of the Sunwarrior protein shake. Click here to see my review about it! This means more proteins for your body before going to sleep. Whilst sleeping your muscles can use them very well after a hard day of working out.
What you should also take care of is that you don´t eat any deep fried food, it has too many calories and could destroy all your hard work. If you can´t avoid it, overcome it and stick again to your plan. Keep drinking water and tea during the whole day. Take care of not using so much sugar, also in your coffee. You can use a sweetener like Stevia but also in moderation.
Maybe you have seen that there are no carbohydrates in your dinner.
The reason for this is that our body converts the carbohydrates into sugar. The first thing that our body burns is sugar and after that the fat. It needs about eight hours to burn one meal with carbohydrates. If you eat them for dinner and go to bed afterward, during the eight hours of sleep our organism is burning the sugar. If you have dinner with vegetables and proteins our body can burn the fat cells whilst you are sleeping. Many women told me that at night they are most hungry and that it is very difficult to let the carbohydrates out. They are giving you the feeling of being full faster than proteins.
The key is to accustom yourself to this new form of nutrition.
If you have a closer look, till dinner you have enough carbohydrates in your plan. For dinner, you won´t be so hungry and you won´t have the need to eat them because you already had them. It is a matter of change the timing. You can eat more in the morning and lunch, and eat less for dinner. The good thing about it is when you already are used to it you won´t have any cravings during the day. This is no diet, but it is a nutrition plan. You don´t need to relinquish anything.
The compromise with yourself is to follow this plan from Monday till Friday and on Saturday and Sunday, you can eat whatever you want in moderation. Chocolate, Pizza, Burgers, and Pasta are ok. Obviously, if you stick to the plan on the weekend also, the effect of losing weight will be faster. At more advanced levels it is even necessary to have cheat meals once a week, but this is not the case now.
