Kick Start Eating Plan
As I have said Skinny Loves Food is not a quick fix. It will not help you to drop a couple of pounds by the weekend.
This is not a diet – I repeat – THIS IS NOT A DIET!!!!!
These are ideas to slowly and consistently help you re adjust your diet to an all over healthier way of life.
Here are some healthy, low fat, high fibre meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Use these suggestions to get you started and feel free to ask me any queries aboout ideas and suggestions you may have.
The basic concept these options follow is lots of high fibre, wholegrain carbs, lean protein, low saturated fat, reduced sugar and salt, lots of fruit and vegetables and drinking lots of water.
