It is recommended to have 6 meals and snacks per day. You will see 7 on the sample menus. It is important that you don’t workout on an empty stomach. You should eat something 30-60 minutes before your workout. Everyone’s schedule and workout time is different; so, depending on your daily schedule and your workout time, feel free to combine these 7 meals/snacks into 5 or 6. Remember, it is IMPORTANT to have the protein shake and a carbohydrate (the banana on the sample menus) after your workout.

All proteins, fats and carbohydrates are measured in grams.
Throughout the Day
Start the day with a 64 ounce container of “Cran Water“. This is made by mixing 56 ounces of water with 8 ounces of 100% Cranberry Juice. You will NOT FIND 100% Cranberry Juice in the grocery store (read the ingredients!!!). Cranberry juice can be found at health food stores and it isn’t cheap; but, it does last a long time. Eight ounces of this mixture will go into your Breakfast Smoothie. Drink the other 56 ounces throughout the day. This “Cran Water” helps digest those fatty globules in the lymphatic system – your body’s fat disposal dump.
