I know most people see mega results after following this meal plan… but you know me… I had to take my fair share of cheat days. And with multiple birthday sushi dinners thrown in there and other friend/family celebrations, I’m SUPER pumped to be down ten pounds.

Lunch is always veggie-heavy with some protein. And then dinner is a more of a free-for-all situation. If we’re cooking at home, we’re making food light on carbs. If we’re eating out, it’s obviously harder to plan. No matter what, I try to track as much as possible. Here’s my system (pic taken yesterday):
