Yep, its insane! Literally, these people are losing 2-6 lbs per week and they are eating more than ever and enjoying what they eat. And that is the whole point. You should enjoy what you eat and not feel deprived so that you can be CONSISTENT. Because its consistency that will bring about good and lasting results.
You may know what you have to eat, you just don’t have the time to sit down every single week and make a meal plan and shopping list for the week. I get it. That is why I did all the work for you in my BeFit Moms Meal Plan. It’s like having your own personal trainer/chef but way cheaper LOL.
Or, maybe you have tried to eat clean before but you are still not sure what are the best foods for losing weight…. When you should eat them, how you should cook them. Maybe you still feel like you are on a “diet” and that is why you haven’t been able to be consistent. I’m telling you, after a few months following the BeFit Moms Meal Plan, you will totally get it, and my hope is that it will become your lifestyle. Because when it does, that is when you will get amazing results.
I want to give you some real “diet recipes” and when I say “diet”, I mean MY KIND OF DIET, which doesn’t feel like diet at all and that is the point.
Try them and connect with me on Facebook, and let me know what you think. Or if you want me to HEALTHILY a recipe, just let me know right there.
