My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day

Today I’ve started my healthy eating diet with Juice Plus. It means a lot more to me than just losing weight. It’s about my health. For a very long time I’ve been eating around ten or more biscuits each day and the meals I eat have been easy-to-cook options like pizza or ready meals. It’s become a habit and if I continue like this I’m going to be very unhealthy.

The Juice Plus Complete Shakes contain just the right amount of calories and goodness to be able to replace a meal. I’ll be getting more vitamins than I normally get by dropping meals believe it or not. But of course it’s also about me losing weight, I’m not exactly obese I know that, but I’m certainly not happy with my body the way it is. The rules of the diet are simple and are as follows:

Weeks 0-8 = 2 shakes + 1 healthy meal + 2 snacks per day

Weeks 8-14= 1 shake + 2 healthy meals + 2 snacks per day

Weeks 14-16 (and onwards) = 3 healthy meals + 2 snacks per day

I’ve chosen a mix of chocolate and vanilla shakes to shake things up a little bit. With regards to what foods I should and shouldn’t be eating, I’ve got a huge list. 20% of my daily food should be meat and 80% fruit & veg.

I have to have 1-2 potions of fruit per day so will be having some grapes and a small banana for my snacks. Ivd emptied a 1litre Lucozade bottle to help monitor the 2litres of water per day I have to drink. I have to exercise 3 times a week high intensity to burn fat.

I’m not allowed to eat wheat, dairy (which means the shakes are mixed up with either soya, rice, almond or coconut milk – I’ve chosen Almond although I didn’t like it very much this morning), processed food, alcohol and sugar.
