For the month of January, all of my Monday WOW’s will give you behind-the-scenes tips, tricks & secrets from the show. Here’s the 2nd edition:
Snacks = Produce + Protein
Jasmin used 3-compartment plates at mealtime to help get her ratios right. Not seen on the show: Jasmin followed my snacking rules. Snack 0-2 times per day only if/when hungry & the best snacks (~150 cals each) are a combo of produce + protein. This dynamic duo works to bridge one meal to the next because produce gets you full + protein keeps you full. Get a sample SNACK CARD HERE.
Excitement is MAGIC
A big secret to Jasmin’s success is that she gets EXCITED about trying new things. Instead of seeing exercise as a difficult challenge, she reframes it as a fun adventure. Not seen on the show: Jasmin worked on her breathing technique for running using THESE pilates moves, followed a structured running training schedule similar to THIS, and did <10 minute, full-body workouts & 12.5-minute sprint routines as explained HERE.
Have FUN w/ Fruits & Veggies
There’s just no reason to choke down boring & bland veggies. Come on, let’s have fun! You’ve already seen on the show cauliflower mac & cheese and spinach popsicles! Not seen on the show: More ways to eat veggies like green bean & carrot fries and 3-ingredient banana bread cookies. Watch THIS television segment for more veggie ideas and click HERE for more fruit-based dessert ideas.
