Snack: 1 cup of soy or skim milk, and 1 stone fruit like a plum or peach.
Lunch: 1 cup SOUPer Slimming Soup and 3 ounces of water packed tuna mixed with 1 T of your favorite fat free mayonnaise served on ½ whole grain bun or roll.
Snack: 1 cup of SOUPer Slim Soup and ¼ cup of low-fat cottage cheese or a slice of lean, oven roasted turkey.
Dinner: 1 cup of SOUPer Slim Soup first to fill you up, then, 6 ounce serving of salmon burger or broiled/grilled fish served over 1 cup of mixed baby greens dressed with 1 T of your favorite low-fat salad dressing, and ½ cup of whole grain brown rice. For dessert, ½ cup seasonal, fresh (or frozen) dark colored berries topped with 2 T of low-fat whipping cream flavored with 1 to 2 drops of real vanilla.
Drinks: Water, decaf coffee, or herbal tea—especially green tea as that contains ECEG. If you like your drink sweet, you may flavor with your favorite substitute.
Note: This sample day menu is approximately 1500 Calories/Day. Try to eat this amount of Calories for the first couple weeks to jump-start your weight loss. For men add another 200 to 300 for a total daily Caloric intake of approximately 1800 Calories/Day. *Fella’s, you can do this by increasing your protein at lunch to 6 ounces, and adding a P.M. snack.
