Noeleen Bridle, Durban's top fitness and lifestyle coach, shares the secrets of losing that excess weight and keeping it off.
Below is my Level 3 Eating Plan which I recommend as a one week kick-start to your new eating programme. This high form of control will give you results which will motivate you to continue on this path. Remember to measure your hip area and across the widest part of your buttocks before you start.
Eliminate all tea, coffee, alcohol, junk food, sweets and eating out. This is only for 7 days so if you really want to make a change then you must commit to the plan.
Your fridge should contain two potions of cooked quinoa, legumes and four cooked egg whites prepared and ready to add to low dense carbs everyday.
Also cook a large batch of tasty onion and tomato mix with peppers, mushrooms, herbs and spices (oil-free) to keep in your fridge for a few days and add to your food.
||2 fruits and 1 fat-free yoghurt
|Salad (e.g. lettuce, spinach, tomato, cucumber, pepperdews etc)
and two cooked egg whites with balsamic or Tabasco)
||3 Tbsp cooked quinoa, flavoured to your tastes (e.g. lemon juice
garlic, curry, chilli) with 1 cup assorted green and white veggies.
||Stuff half a gem squash with 1 Tbsp legumes (flavoured lentils,
baked beans, chickpeas, etc) and cooked onion and tomato mix.
||60g Tofu or 3 Tbsp cooked quinoa with tasty vegetable stir fry -
using Pepperdew juice instead of oil.
Drink lemon/lime-flavoured water and herbal teas.
Go for it! Watch out for next month's follow-up programme which will show you how to cheat 20% of the time on this programme and still keep the weight off.
