Week one of stripping my diet

Week one of stripping my diet
So I started T25 and I'm three weeks into it and any time starting a new workout program your weight can change or stay the same in the first week until your body adjust.  Well that happened to me and after week three coming to an end and the scale not moving its time to make changes.  So yes some people may think that's it, I can't loss any more weight I hit a "plateau" but they are wrong.  This is the time when everything that enters your mouth matters, this is when it time to really strip down your diet.  Here are a few of the guide lines that I will be following in the next 28 days of stripping down my diet:
-No dairy
-Eating in the first hour of waking up
-Not eating three hours before bed
-WATER!! WATER!! WATER!! I will be drinking 2 cups of water before every meal then entire day.
-Set the timer on my phone so I would stay on track eating every 2.5 hours
-Dinner is usually the biggest meal of the day for North American families, but it doesn't make sense to fill yourself up with energy you won't burn off after dinner.  More of your daily nutrition should be consumed at the beginning of the day when you are more likely to be busy burning the energy away.
-continuing to eat 5-6 small meals a day.
-Really focusing in on how much protein and fiber I'm consuming NO counting calories!
-getting 8 hours of sleep a night
-Stripping my diet DOES NOT mean starving myself!!  More focusing on what foods to eat together and what times of the day.  Starving your body does not do anyone any good.
-I will not be cooking with olive oil

So yes I decided to start on Monday August 26 and yes this means I will make the choice to stay on track going into a Holiday weekend and also my sons second birthday.  It's not about the food we eat at these gathering rather its the time spent with family.  When you look back on past holidays you don't tend to remember what you ate it was the memories created with the people you love.  So live every day to its fullest and let food only be a source of fuel to your body.  If you would like more help creating a life style of healthy eating and not a crash diet contract me and we can chat and get a game plan in place.

Here is my meal plan for the week and I will stick to it.
