Day 7 and it’s on to lunch!!!
Lunchtime for some people is short and sweet, before the rest of your busy workday continues. For others, it is relaxing and you can take time to enjoy good food and good company. And some simply do not get to it, whether because of business, forgetfulness, or neglect.
While breakfast jump starts your body, and snacks sustain us through the day, lunch time is a chance for us to ﬁt in some extra calories our bodies need and some added protein to sustain us for the afternoon before dinner. While it may seem trivial, make it a point to eat a nutrient dense lunch each day.
[note title=”Remember!” align=”left”] Skipping lunch will starve your body of the needed calories, and then you will tend to eat more at dinner to satisfy this need. Lunch is CRUCIAL!! [/note]
A good tip is to make one of our delicious recipes for dinner, and take some of the leftovers for lunch the next day. You will know who prepared your food, where it came from, that there weren’t any additional additives or preservatives, and you will be saving money, to boot!!

Rest. Your body needs rest. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go golfing, or take a walk with your kids, or even go mountain biking. It just means, take a day of rest from the normal routine of this plan.
And, enjoy, because tomorrow, the gloves come off!!!
- Take your measurements
It is important to look at the big picture when doing a weight-loss plan. Both objective and subjective data need to be evaluated. It is important to be mindful of your energy level, how you are sleeping, how your clothes are ﬁtting, and how your mental attitude changes. Likewise, make sure you are paying attention to your strength, your weight, your body fat percentage, and body measurements.
Scale weight is an important measurement in weight loss. It is crucial to remember that our scale weight does not tell us what we are made up of, simply how much our lean and fat mass weighs altogether. However, having goal weights and benchmarks along the way can help to keep us moving forward, and seeing measurable progress.
