Healthy Diet Plan for Women: Lunch

Ok we’re well on our way in Phase 3, and you should have had some pretty healthy breakfasts this week (if not please read Healthy Diet Plan for Women).

Today we’re going to look at some super healthy and yummy lunch ideas. Some of you may ask about calories but I want to get you out of that head state because I think it leads to too much stress when eating and leads you down a wrong path. A much better idea is to try these ideas and see how your body specifically changes.

In other words, increase or decrease your portion size according to how your body feels. If you’re not fully satisfied after eating then add some more veggies and make sure to drink lots of water so you get more minerals and nutrients and allow the water to also satisfy any dehydration (which may be disguised as hunger).

If you are wondering if you should have had a snack between breakfast and lunch, the answer is a definite YES! But let’s take everything a step at a time and first focus on your staple meals. Of course, I will be including an article dedicated specifically for healthy snacks, but in the meantime I would suggest ordering yourself some Whey Protein powder. The benefits are completely overwhelming and I even have my mom enjoying the benefits from including it in her diet. I highly recommend Optimum Nutrition Complete Protein Diet as it includes riboflavin and folic acid which has extra benefits for women.

Have any questions or feedback about any of this? Please leave a comment below, I would love to get more feedback from you ladies, don’t be shy!
