Commando Boot Camp & Cellulite Reduction
Try for 1 week. NO TREATS or whole proteins (fish, meat) except 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites. Eat only soups, shakes, and puddings.
EX: Breakfast: shake and coffee/tea w/1 oz. milk (if desired).
Lunch: soup w/veggies (see note) and salad (suggest lemon juice and olive oil w/spices (oregano, garlic, basil, thyme, etc.) in lieu of Walden Farms.
Dinner: IP omelet w/veggies (lightly saute mushrooms, peppers, zucchini, asparagus, broccoli) OR use 1 whole egg w/3 egg whites. Have this w/another shake or pudding (double protein here).
Snack: pudding or shake
NOTE; You can have the omelet (or eggs) for lunch instead of soup. Then have soup w/pudding or shake for dinner.
Super Soup: In a basket steamer, lightly steam broccoli, asparagus, spinach, kale, cauliflower, or a combo of these. Mix the chicken soup in a shaker and put the veggies and soup in a blender. Puree. while blending add spices: suggest curry powder, coriander, cayenne pepper, cumin and/or sea salt. Heat in a sauce pan.
This is a great idea with taking out the meats for a week to lose more weight for a special event like a wedding, the only thing I worry about it taking in 2 servings of protein at a time. I was told by a GNC guy that the body can only process about 20 g of protein at a time and that the best way to go is to space it out about an hour or two between each protein. Maybe a mid afternoon snack of pudding or drink would be more beneficial?
Not trying to nag
I was just told that if you take in more than 20g or so at a time, you're body will bloat and the protein can sometimes get turned to insulin.
I may try the no meat thing next week though! I LOVE EGG WHITES!!
