Women's fitness meal plans

When I started P90X, I had no idea what I should be eating. I kept googling Women's fitness meal plans and tried to craft my own. Frustrating to say the least. Now that I have some experience, it's easier but I still have to make sure I plan out my week...otherwise...watch out! I can't be held responsible for how I think when I'm hungry! 


The Basics: I try and keep my diet clean all year round and free of any soft drinks and alcohol, processed meats, processed anything really. Your food should come from NATURE. If your great grandparents wouldn't recognize it as food, it probably isn't lol

Start reading your labels- they should have ONE to 5 ingredients. (Example: Frozen broccoli should ONLY list broccoli on the label)

And remember the rule of 6! If it has more than 6 grams of FAT or 6 grams of sugar, avoid it. Exceptions to this would from natural sources (think: Fruit or something like Shakeology that is naturally sweetened or Avocado that has HEALTHY fat)

Start eating every 2-3 hours. This will provide you with the nutrients you need to feel energized throughout the day, maintain your sexy muscle tone, AND fire up your metabolism. With your metabolism in high gear, your body will be primed to burn fat for fuel, not store it as stuffing. Instead of the typical 3 meals daily, you'll be eating every 2-3 hours, having 5-6 quality meals throughout the day.

This keeps your body burning fat and utilizing calories for energy-a key to staying lean and toning your muscles. Eating this often will help keep hunger under control, keep your metabolism high, and reduce those pesky cravings.






Now since I'm extremely boring, I eat the same thing pretty much everyday. I do switch it up here and there but if you want to get great results...combine this with a workout like P90X, Insanity, Body Beast

Daily Diet:
Meal 1: 6 Egg Whites & 1/3 C Plain Old Fashioned Oats (add cinnamon & a packet of Stevia) You can also add in veggies with your eggs if you'd like

Meal 2: Shakeology

Meal 3: 6 oz Chicken or Fish and 3/4 C Brown Rice, Unlimited Spinach and 5 slices Avocado.

Meal 4: 5 oz Chicken with Sweet Potato and Steamed Mixed Veggies

Meal 5: Fish/Chicken and unlimited veggies OR Chicken Salad (6 oz chicken,spinach & romaine lettuce, black beans)

Meal 6: Casein shake



I also HIGHLY recommend you check out the meal plans on Body Building. Go here for a fat loss plan for women. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/find-a-plan-fat-loss-2039-female.html
There are tons of customizable meal plans and options. I personally can eat the same thing day in and day out but some people like variety.

Let me know if this helps you and if you need clarification. Knowing what to eat can be confusing!
