Planning a Fuel Cycle – Meal Plan


      With the New Year fast approaching I decided that I am going to do a Fuel Cycle.

      Fuel Cycles are part of the Time Healthy Mama lifestyle, they are not recommended for people just starting the plan and are used to remove what is referred to in the book as "donkey weight" (you know the weight that is just stubborn as a mule). 

      Being that I am older and my lifestyle is more sedentary than I'd like my weight loss has stalled a bit (yeah ok, I have had a few too many cross over meals). 

     Out with the old and in with the new… I'm also doing a "No Cheat Challenge" sponsored by one of the administrators of the Facebook groups (she has a really cool blog).

       One of the most important parts of a Fuel cycle is to plan your meals and snacks. This regiment is really strict about the foods that you can and cannot have and follows the guidelines in Chapter 28 of the Trim Healthy Mama Book.

     I made a batch of Chocolate Cherry Candies (skinny chocolate with a twist) for the Deep S days... I'll post that recipe soon. 

But here's a picture... 

 
      And here's my menu beginning January 2, 2015. (Some of the recipes are linked and it is printable for your convenience)
