This momma is officially half way to #BikiniAfterBaby! When I've done weight loss programs in the past, they could sometimes leave me feeling irritable and unsatisfied. That's because I was literally depriving myself of key nutrients that keep my blood sugar and energy where they needed to be.
Just as a little recap of what these nutrients are, here is Kelly's Fab Four that I've been eating to get myself bikini ready before summer. I loved it because I knew what I was eating and easy to prepare ahead of time:
Protein (4-6 oz or 20g): small burger, chicken breast, petite filet, fish or 4 eggs (mix of yolks and white is preferred)
Fat (1-2 tbsp or 10g): coconut oil, avocado, almond butter, olive oil,
Fiber & Greens: 2-3 cup vegetables, raw or cooked.
Carbs: In one serving size (less than 25 grams) 1/2 cup of berries, one corn tortilla or 1/2 cup rice. Potatoes, corn and peas are considered carbs not vegetables. Beans are 50% carbohydrate, so hummus with turkey and a barley wrap would be a double carb.
Scroll below for a new Fab Four Bikini Recipe that I'm OBSESSED with. It's a sweet rice bowl that's satisfying without being too heavy!
