PLF Daily Tip: I
believe in eating 5-6 mini meals a day. I feel as though I am
constantly snacking, but I have a lot more energy and my body continues
to tone up. The secret is that you must keep your meals small.
Everything in moderation is fine, as long as the majority of your diet
is protein, healthy fats, and vegetables. If you are trying to lose a
few pounds a week, then I would avoid: bread, dairy, sugar, anything
that is diet, juice and spreads like mayo, butter etc. Here's a weeks worth of meals to help you get started. xo
