Here are my TOP 5 NUTRITION TIPS from my Best selling book Bikini Body Mommy Blueprint to help you get started. Implement just ONE of these new nutrition habits for 1 FULL WEEK before implementing the next tip.
#1: Take a Multivitamin & Liquid Fish Oil supplement DOSE: Multivitamin – 1 daily like Genuine Health (multi+)
Fish oil supplement *LIQUID FORM* like Carlson Labs VERY FINEST Fish Oil – 1 gram per 1% body fat, but NO more than 30grams per day for the first 2 weeks, then cut the dosage in 1/2.
REASON #1: The multivitamin is an insurance policy against nutrient deficiencies — Most clients who come to me are deficient in a ton of vitamins, minerals, and omega 3’s… and if we fix that right out of the gate, we can really hit the ground running!
REASON #2: The fish oil has plenty of data behind it that suggests that it has positive effects on the motivational centers of your brain (when taken in the dose I recommend), as well as increases FAT LOSS, and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.
**To make things extra easy and save you the headache of trying to find them… here are links to buy the exact same brand of Multi-Vitamin and Fish Oil Supplement I used this past year to lose 100 POUNDS:
MULTI-VITAMIN: Genuine Health (multi+)
FISH OIL: Carlson Labs VERY FINEST FISH OIL
Why start here? It’s EASY — we can build up a positive momentum! And If we can actually make an impact the motivation centers in your brain to increase your motivation, in addition to fixing your nutrient deficiencies, increase your fat loss, and help you to be less sore from your new BIKINI BODY MOMMY CHALLENGE workout regime … you are going to have a better chance of success!
#2 Eat Breakfast within 20 minutes of waking up (This means– BEFORE YOUR COFFEE!) Turn your metabolism into a fired up fat-burning furnace FIRST THING! Keep it small and protein rich.
#3 Consume Protein-rich foods with EVERY MEAL Get at least 20 grams in per meal! Great sources include: eggs, greek yogurt, chicken, fish, bison, quinoa, black beans, lentils, and chickpeas.
#4 BEWARE of WHITE This includes rice, pastas, potatoes, cereal, bread, fried food with breading, and milk.
#5 Drink COPIOUS AMOUNTS of H2O AMOUNT: Consume at least half your body weight in ounces, upwards of 1 gallon every day — NO EXCEPTIONS! 1/2 your Body weight Example: 150lb woman would drink 75 ounces DAILY — a little over 6 traditional 12oz water bottles. 1 Gallon Example: 10 traditional 12oz water bottles DAILY.
Yes, it IS A LOT of water. YES, you’ll likely be going to the bathroom every 10 minutes until your body adjusts. If you really want to lose the fat and ditch the belly pooch that making you feel so awful about yourself — Deal with it! I cant emphasize enough how important hydration is when it comes to fat loss.
