Here’s where it gets fun! We’re going to put everything together you’ve learned so far and start creating Plate It! meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time.
Check out the Plate It! images in your Go-To Guide and in your tracker for easy reference. And check out the images below for examples on what your plates should look like. Keep in mind the food types don’t always have to be arranged in perfect sections, but you should always try to be a good “food investigator” and divide your plates in the right ratios (whether you do it on your actual plate or just in your mind’s eye!).
Although a snack is shown in the daily tracker, it is optional, aka “snack(tional).” You’ll likely find that your meals are so filling you probably won’t need a snack. And if you do, I encourage you to start with some veggies and then a Shakeology—which if you haven’t already had it as part of your healthy breakfast, makes a great snack option!
Don’t be scared to try this. The truth is you can eat a lot more food than you think and still lose weight. So eat it, track it, and be sure to weigh in tomorrow to see for yourself!
