WHAT I EAT TO LOSE WEIGHT – QUICK HEALTHY RECIPES!


WHAT I EAT TO LOSE WEIGHT

Healthy recipes for lazy days

Here in this video and blog post, I’m going to show you another example of what I eat in a day to lose weight – these are some of my healthy go-to recipes for when I’m having a lazy day (and don’t wanna spend all day cooking!).

Make sure that you check out my video below, and I’ve also typed up the full recipes for you below – these recipes just serve me (they just serve 1).


CALORIES PER DAY

This day of eating is based on roughly 1400 calories. I generally eat 1200-1400 calories a day to lose weight, and sometimes 1100 (if I was very inactive that day). I have a petite frame, but women with a taller frame (or women who are very active every day) may need to eat more to lose weight in a healthy way. I talk more about how to work out your personal calorie needs in my book.

You can also download my 3 day eating plan for weight-loss, if you want another example of what to eat in a day to lose weight. I’m currently giving it away for Free, so you can download it and check it out if you want to.

And you can also check out my other “What I eat in a day” videos for more weight-loss meal inspiration.

I hope that you find this helpful!
