By no means should you feel hungry on this diet, you should NEVER starve yourself! For optimal results, once you complete this 7-day meal plan, you can go back to eating a balanced and healthy diet with a little more calories and a few cheat meals here and there before repeating this 7-day shredding meal plan. I know that this diet is pretty limited, but I’m sure that you can pull it off for such a short period of time. It’s not hard because we are hungry, it’s hard because we are used to eating for pure pleasure, out of boredom, for fun, etc.
“When going out for fast food, I used to get the large-size value meal. Now, I satisfy a craving by ordering just one item: a small order of fries or a six-piece box of chicken nuggets. So far, I’ve shaved off 16 pounds in seven weeks, and I’m on track to being thinner than my high school self for my 10-year reunion later this year.” —Miranda Jarrell, Birmingham, AL
“When you tell yourself you ‘have to’ do or what you ‘can’t’ do, the deprivation language makes you rebel. But if you say, ‘I’m not going to have that—I won’t’ it’s a choice and you’re in control.”
I think dieting has a negative connotation to it, because the first thing people think of is restriction, when the truth is you can eat healthily & enjoy otherwise “off-limits” food. It’s just a matter of learning what moderation means — I like to remind myself I can have the items I really “want”, but I can’t have them all at once.

Hi Haley, glad to hear you loved it! 🙂 Yes, just continue on to the more difficult exercise plan from where you left off. There’s no need to start from the beginning. To make things more difficult, you can also start changing the upper, lower and total body workout routines to make them more challenging. So instead of increasing how long you’re exercising to make it more difficult, just make the workouts more difficult. Plus, your body will get used to the workout routine after about 12 weeks. So even just changing the exercises you’re doing would be new and unusual for your body, making the new exercises more challenging. This will help you avoid a fitness or weight loss plateau, and help you to keep getting great results in terms of calorie burning, muscle strength and fitness, for a toned, strong body!
“Each time I needed to lose the baby weight, I stopped eating after 6:30 p.m. five nights a week. The other two evenings were reserved for nights out. Most of what I’d eat at night was junk food anyway, so it took only two months to get my pre-baby body back.” —Deborah Gilboa, Pittsburgh, PA
Your muscle-building phase should be followed by a two-week fat-loss phase. During this week you want to cut out any processed foods from your nutrition program. This includes all shakes and protein bars. The focus here is on low-sodium natural foods like chicken breast, lean steak, white fish, egg whites, dark green leafy vegetables, oatmeal, yam and brown rice.
Do it better: The best way to know if you’re eating too much is to write it down. “Even if you note it on a napkin and then throw it away, that’s okay. Just the act of writing makes you more aware,” says Taub-Dix. Portion control cues help too: A baseball-size serving for chopped veggies and fruits; a golf ball for nuts and shredded cheese; a fist for rice and pasta; and a deck of cards for lean meats.
When you plan a diet, consider your normal activity level and the exercise regimen you’ll implement as part of a weight-loss plan. Carbs are important sources of energy, especially for muscles, so performance suffers when you eat less than 130 grams daily, notes Iowa State University. To support your energy needs while encouraging fat loss, you may want to consider a moderate-carb diet, which means getting 26 to 45 percent of your daily calories from carbs, which is 130 to 225 grams of carbs per day on a 2,000-calorie diet.
In order to allow stored body fat to be used as the primary fuel source, you will need to reduce your caloric intake below maintenance level. The thing is, that deficit can be classified as small, moderate, or large based on how far below maintenance you go and how much you reduce your daily calorie intake by.
In Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the surgeon creates a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is the only part of the stomach that receives food. This greatly limits the amount that you can comfortably eat and drink at one time.
Dietary fat is essential to support a reduction in subcutaneous body fat. Not only is it the most energy dense nutrient at 9 calories per gram, it is useful in supporting absorption of vitamins and minerals. Fat is necessary to build cell membranes, prevent nerve damage, enable muscle movement, and support blood clotting.
On the plan where would you put the fruit where the apple is or where it says when you have a carb listed and canyou switch up the veggies and meats as long as you stick to your amounts I’m trying to lose my last ten pounds its over a month and I’m hitting a plateau should I use a fat burner if yes can you suggest one and your plan is great everything you have on their i eat but my breakfast I do egg whites oatmeal mix together and two tsp of almond butter I can’t eat bananas thank you
By using nonstick cookware, you’ll cut down on calories and prep time, says Clark. If you leave out oil or butter when cooking lean meats and veggies you’ll save fat and calories–extra-virgin olive oil contains 120 calories and 14 g of fat per tablespoon, and unsalted butter has 102 calories and 12 g of fat per tablespoon. Skipping oil or butter means you don’t have to spend time digging out one more ingredient from the cabinet or fridge. Plus, it can be time-consuming to wash greasy pans once they hit the sink.

One recent study found that we burn 50% more calories metabolizing whole foods than processed foods. So not only are you likely to decrease your calorie intake when prepping your own meals, your body will thank you with a metabolism boost.
“Sweet potatoes are a great post-workout snack. They’re low on the glycemic index and rich in fiber which helps tame that out-of-control appetite many people have after they exercise.” — Shaun T, celebrity fitness trainer and creator of Insanity, Max:30 and Hip Hop Abs

When it comes to weight loss and 7 day plan’s, most plan’s can be difficult to follow for a vegetarian. The example plan above has a mixture of different meats for all the meals, but what can a vegetarian do to achieve the same balance of meals and manage weight loss?

Gastric bypass surgery is a procedure that creates a small stomach pouch to restrict food intake and constructs bypasses of the duodenum and parts of the small intestine to decrease one’s ability to absorb nutrients from food. There are two types of gastric bypass operations: Roux-en-Y and extensive gastric bypass. Patients who undergo gastric bypass surgery will need to take nutrition supplements due to limited absorption of certain vitamins and minerals.
