When it comes to following a diet plan, some people do better following a very specific plan – like the one we posted up a few days ago:
On the other hand, some folks do better with guidelines – which they can create their own meals around, etc.
That’s why we give you BOTH options in our Rapid Fat Loss Challenge.
FVT Rules of Lean Eating
Eat lean protein at every meal
Include a lean protein source at every meal. This could be poultry, fish, egg(s), protein powder, etc.
Eat veggies and/or fruits at every meal
Your primary carbohydrate source should be veggies and/or fruits. Your goal is to include one of these at every meal as well.
Eat a “good” fat at every meal
Finish off each meal with a “dash” of good fat like nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocado, etc.
Minimize your starches and processed carbohydrates
Keep your intake of things like bread, pasta, crackers, etc. to a minimum.
REALLY minimize your sugar intake
Rarely, if ever, eat sugar. Period.
Drink about half of your body weight in oz. of water per day
So if you weigh 150 pounds, you should shoot for about 75 oz. of water per day (nine or ten eight ounce glasses).
Follow the “90%” rule
This rule says that you need to be “on” with the seven rules 90% of the time to see progress.
For example, if you eat three times per day, seven days per week … no more than two of your meals can break these rules.
You CAN go off the plan everyone once in a while … it’s just what you do on a regular and consistent basis that will determine your ultimate results.
But if you just follow these seven rules 90% of the time, you’re almost guaranteed to get to your ideal weight in a short amount of time.
