8 Weeks to Your New Beach Body – Week 2

imgresThis week we will focus on what we need to start eating more of. We are not going to take anything out of your diet…for now, but focus on eating more of the following:

– Leafy Greens and Cruciferous Veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, radish and arugula): full of phytochemicals, fiber, vitamins and nutrients.

– Berries: the antioxidants in berries fight free radicals and oxidative stress.

– Coconut Oil and Cocount Milk: increases metabolism, reduces hunger and used as a quick fuel source from the liver.

– Apple Cider vinegar: helps to detox the body and increase energy

– Lemon Water: helps clease and detox the body, increase energy, aids digestion and reduces hunger cravings

– Cold Water Fish (tuna, salmon, mackeral, sardines): good source of vitamin D and Omega 3 fatty acids, helps to build stronger bones and fight hunger

– Plant Based Protein (nuts and legumes): helps build and sustain muscle, alkaline-forming and rich in antioxidants

– Chicken (free-range, organic and antibiotic free): a good source of protein

– Teas (green, peppermint, white, yerba mate and oolong): Increases metabolism and satiety, reducing hunger and reving the fuel burning engine.
