Day 2 Strong Core Workout

Today we’re going to step things up a notch and really challenge that core. No equipment required. Ready, set, go…


Day 2 Nutrition Challenge: The Dinner Veggie Swap

One of the most important factors to consider when working towards fat loss is: nutrient timing.

You should be mindful of not only the type of nutrition you’re feeding your body but also what activities you’re going to use it for.

Take a look at this example of the average American worker.

Breakfast: Starbucks latte + muffin = 750 calories
Activity: sitting in car and sitting at desk

Lunch: Large sandwich + soda = 800-900 calories
Activity: sitting at desk

Dinner: Pasta + Chicken + Alcoholic beverage = 1200+ calories 😮
Activity: watching TV and sleeping

Have you gotten that ugh feeling yet?

If your day looks similar to the example above, don’t panic and don’t try to revamp your entire eating habits all at once.

Today, you’re only going to focus on the last meal of your day = your dinner.

When you reduce the calories and especially avoid carb loading for dinner, you allow your body to tap into your fat storages for any additional energy it might need.

The best part is that most of this process happens while you’re sleeping.

So you get to take advantage of extra fat burning while you snooze. Pretty cool right?

Today’s assignment is going to be the Veggie Dinner Swap and it works like this:

For dinner, replace every carb/starch with a veggie of your choice.

Your vegetable choices must be fresh (no canned or fried). Frozen is ok if you don’t have access to fresh ones. Oh, and they must also be real vegetables – potatoes and corn do not count.

When in doubt, GO GREEN!

You can almost never go wrong by eating a green vegetable.

So if you would typically eat a protein and a side of rice or potatoes – you’re now going to swap them with a salad or other veggies like broccoli, green beans, tomatoes, etc…

A couple things to be aware of:

1) When you first do the Dinner Veggie Swap, you may still feel hungry after you eat. Simply add an additional vegetable or have a bigger serving of protein. You could also drizzle a little olive oil or grass-fed butter for some healthy, filling fats…we’ll talk more about how fats help you lose more fat in just a few days.

2) If you find yourself being an impulse eater; eat slowly and wait 20 minutes after you eat to allow your hunger drive to switch off – give yourself some


That wraps up Day 2!

If you successfully completed yesterday’s assignments, you’re on a roll and all you need to do is keep the momentum going!

Are you ready to accelerate your results and feel more confident in your clothes?
