July Week 4 - Weight Loss


SATURDAY

Food preparation for the week is key! Today, cook up a good ol' batch of black beans in the crock pot. Beans are a good, balanced source of protein and carbohydrate. If you are afraid to eat beans because of the toots, check out these digestive enzymes!

If you are trying to go really low carb so you can shed pounds as quickly as possible, you can replace the beans in the meals below with sauteed veggies instead. But remember, you do need some carbohydrates for energy! It is all about balancing your blood sugar levels, eating beans with protein in the morning is a great way to start your day.

I always try to cook extra meat and veggies when I cook dinner so that I have left overs for lunches the next day!
