THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU START THIS PROGRAM
Have you ever asked yourself why weight loss is always on the resolution lists of most people every year? There is a reason why weight loss is everyone’s resolution and there is also a reason why it’s on the list every year. Truth be told, losing weight is tough and not easy to maintain. For several years, fitness professionals, dietitians, and nutritionists have been trying every means possible to make weight loss doable for their clients. There are tons of weight loss programs, diet programs and exercises all over the place. Is it that they are not effective at weight loss or they do not keep weight loss off for longer periods? Why are you still struggling with weight loss? Perhaps you are struggling with weight loss because you are missing a vital component of weight loss. To lose weight and maintain it, mental preparation is key. You have got to prepare yourself internally to make a change on the outside.
Now before you start this 7 Day diet program, consider carrying out the outlined tasks below first.
What are your goals? Know and define them.
What is your dream body like? Will you feel fulfilled when you finally achieve your weight loss goals? What parts of your body require the most work? Grab a jotter and pen and write down your goals.
Here are some things to write down.
The areas that needs the most work which could be your arms, hips, stomach, legs and others.
• How many pounds do you need to lose?
• How many inches do you project to lose in your arms, chest, thighs, hips, shoulders, and stomach?

Once you have your goals on paper, keep it where you can see it every day. You can have a copy on the wall in your office or have one on the door of the refrigerator.
If you have a picture of your ideal body type in your head, search for it on the Internet, print it and paste it beside your goals. Spare five minutes every day to look at the picture and visualize the picture on your body.

Always remind yourself of the fulfilment you will feel when you achieve your weight loss goals.

FOOD LISTS FOR THE PROGRAM
To achieve the best results with the program, you must restrict your diet to the foods listed below.
You have three lists of food groups to choose from
This week, you will be required to restrict which are list of fats (F), list of vegetables (V) and list of proteins (P). Refrain from eating food items that are not provided on the list.
Make sure to get food scales to weigh your foods before consumption as it helps ensure that you do not eat more portion than you should. Cook your food in large quantities and then divide it in food coolers. That’s a great way to stay organized, save money and reduce time spent in the kitchen.
HEALTHY FATS (F)
The fats provided on this list are rich in Omega 3 and will not only satisfy your appetite but also activate fats that convert fat to energy. Carbs are known as the main source of energy for the body but during this energy program, you will replace the primary source with the secondary source which is fat. Once you do that, your body will get accustomed to burning fat for energy. To achieve long term results, you can’t go back to your old eating habits after the program. Instead, eat healthy.
1tbsp Flax Oil
1tbsp Coconut Oil (for frying)
1tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (for salads)
1.5oz Goat Cheese
1tbsp. Hemp Seed Oil
VEGETABLE LIST (V)
Aside from minerals, vitamins and fiber, vegetables are composed of carbohydrates such as sugar and starch. Though vegetables are good for the body and provide awesome benefits for the body, your objective during the program is to consume no less than 20 grams of carbs daily. Thus, this list only contain the vegetables with the lowest amounts of starch and sugars. Beside each vegetable, you will find the amounts of carbs contained. Ensure you keep track of the food items you eat so you don’t consume more than the required carbohydrates.
Cucumber 2 cups
Lettuce 1 cup
Mushrooms 1 cup
Asparagus – 2 cups
Broccoli 2 cups
Cabbage 1 cup
Celery 1 cup
Radishes 1 cup
Spinach 2 cups
Radicchio 1 cup PROTEIN LIST (P)
4oz Chicken Breast
4oz Turkey Breast
1 can Tuna Fish (canned in water)
5oz Fish (flounder, shark, salmon, tuna etc.)
1 scoop Protein Powder Isolate. Go for high quality protein powders such as New Zealand Whey.
4oz Lean Beef
2 Whole Eggs
5 Egg Whites
Full fat Cottage Cheese. Take only ½C daily.
CONDIMENTS You are free to use any condiments you want but double check to be sure that they do not have any carbohydrates. Consider using hot sauces that are free of calories and lemon juice/vinegar on your meat and vegetables. Use dry spices sparingly. Avoid the use of ranch sauces, sweet and spicy Asian sauces, ketchups and condiments with high calories.
The foods we eat today have high amounts of taste enhancers such as trans-fat and sugar which do not only have high calories but also wreak havoc on the body. It’s no news that many packaged food producers and restaurants sell you taste enhancer enriched foods in the name of healthy foods. For instance, you may buy a healthy salad at a restaurant not knowing that it contains fried bacon bits with trans fats and sugar in its dressing. Now, these additions may not provide more calories but the taste enhancers will provide more calories than the salad itself. Thus, it becomes important to assemble your food thereby getting rid of harmful ingredients and eating the healthy ones. You can achieve this with major macro nutrients such as carbohydrates, protein and fats. For example, if a salad is made up of 5oz of chicken breast, 1 tbsp. of extra virgin olive and 1 cup of spinach and lettuce leaves, you can say for a fact that the sale is made of 1 serving of protein (1P), 1 serving of healthy fat (1F) and serving of vegetables (1V). Therefore, the composition of your salad is 1P+1V+1F. It’s safe and healthy to eat different mix of macro nutrients with your meal. Throughout the diet program, assemble your meals with the formulas given below. These formulas must be adopted for the 7 Day Detox plan to get optimal results.
The formulas are as follows: Meal 1 (Breakfast) 1P + 1F + 1V Meal 2 (Snack) 1P + 1F Meal 3 (Lunch) 1P + 1F + 1V Meal 4 (Snack) 1P + 1F Meal 5 (Dinner) 1P + 1F + 1V Meal 6 (Snack, if you are still hungry) 1P
