Meal Preparation Guide

Rapid Start

The old mantra – “Don’t lose weight too fast – or you’ll just gain it all back” simply doesn’t hold up in the evidence on successful weight loss. In fact, it is exactly the opposite.

Studies have shown that once you have made up your mind to make changes to lose weight, the sooner you see measurable results, the better. Why? It’s simple. It keeps you motivated. Most people find that they don’t mind making a few sacrifices, as long as they are getting results.

Meal Replacements

There are numerous studies that support the evidence that people simply lose more weight and have better long term results when, for a period of time, they simply eat someone else’s food. That is the premise behind ‘meal replacements’.

The concept is this: First, you pick a day that you are going to start your diet. On that day, you begin eating pre-packaged – portion controlled meals, and essentially stop or significantly reduce eating grocery store bought food for a few weeks. The idea here is that you are giving your body just exactly what it needs for nutrients and nothing else. Just the basics. If the program is designed properly, you’ll be comfortable, without hunger or cravings and will enjoy rapid weight loss. Then, after a few weeks, you’ve broken some bad habits, started eating healthier and on your way to a new, healthier lifestyle.

The next step then, is to gradually begin to reintroduce “normal food” in a more controlled way. As you wean off the meal replacements, and start eating healthy grocery items, you can more easily monitor the effect that certain foods have on your body. You’ll quickly figure out if certain items trigger more cravings or begin to sabotage your weight.

Accountability

A person needs to have an accountability partner when working on making life-style changes. Some studies have shown that up to 85% of people who have lost weight will regain it, but that is if they don’t have support. Those who have support, be it coaching or just someone to report your progress to, will typically have a much better chance of maintaining their weight loss.

Our team at Low Carb Express is experienced in offering you the tips, suggestions and encouragement we all need when trying to make lifestyle changes.

* Generally accepted guidelines for the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of protein is 0.8 grams/kilogram/day. To calculate your specific protein requirements, use the following formula: (Wt in lbs / 2.2) x 0.8 = ____ g of protein required per day. Your suggested plan above, should be adjusted accordingly.

** The Low Carb Express weight management plan suggests that many people have better success with short-term weight loss, while following a low carb or ketogenic diet. However, the Institutes of Medicine's Food and Nutrition Board recommends a minimum of 130 g of carbohydrates per day with a RDA of 300 g/day. You should consult with a healthcare provider to determine whether this low carb approach is safe for you, especially if you have diabetes or are on any medication for blood pressure or thyroid treatment or on blood thinners.

You should consult your health care provider before beginning any diet or exercise program. You are encouraged to review the terms of service.
