After falling off the wagon over the ANZAC long weekend, I decided I needed to get myself back on track, quick smart! I don’t know about everyone else, but when I’m not eating as good as I should, that’s when my bad food cravings are at their worst… ? The better I eat, the less I feel like eating crap!
Using this theory as a guide, I decided to come up with a short, three-day detox meal plan to help get me started & feeling good again!
The meal plan I came up with focuses on lots of good lean protein, green veggies for vitamins & eating lots of it! Because there aren’t any solid carbs in this plan, I’d be mindful of your level of training (your body needs carbs after a really hard training session) and the length of time you stick with it, don’t stick with it for too long.
I’ve planned everything out for just three days, but feel free to extend it to a week if you feel the need. I find that just a few really strict days allows me to get back on track so I can comfortably move on to eating a more balance diet tailored to my body’s needs afterwards.
The main rules;
Eat every three hours while awake – You have to stick by this!
Every meal is comprised of a 40/20 ratio of protein and good fats.
- Bok choy (or other varieties of Asian cabbage)
- Radish (I know, they aren’t green….)
To keep things a little interesting, you can have either horseradish or wholegrain mustard as condiments to go with your meals.
Below is my meal plan & shopping list for 3 days: Enjoy!
