There's an old saying I was taught whenever taking on something for the first time. KISS(Keep it simple stupid), now the STUPID part probably applies more to me than anyone in the newsletter, but regardless it should remain an objective not to overwhelm yourself when beginning a lifestyle change like this. My motto is to always make things as easy as possible. If you're like most Americans (maybe even the world) you probably have a George Foreman grill lying around somewhere. Use it! It's super simple and makes food preparation (not just chicken but beef, vegetables, etc.) extremely easy. Plug it in..heat it up...lay down what you want and close the lid. Wait...did I just explain how to use a George Foreman?

Combine this with Tupperware, protein shakes/bars, and lot's of water. Couldn't be any KISSier...?

Sticking with the theme of simplicity your meal plan for most of you is very simple. And if you plan on making popcorn, Pop your popcorn with just 1/4 tbsp of olive oil to prevent sticking (only 30 calories) and then mix with your spices or sweeteners!


If you're intimidated by the kitchen and how to cook your foods, don't be afraid to use the microwave. Most foods cook easily and still maintain taste!


I'll tell you about how beat up I got snowboarding and how it relates to you and your fitness goals. Yeah you read that right.
