Please tell us the same suggested routine for eating.
"Six months out, I would suggest eliminating things like sugar, bread, pasta, and large portion sizes. Basically, you need to make sure you are eating lean protein and vegetables at every meal with some healthy fats mixed in (i.e. nuts, avocado, olive oil). Get used to eating about six times a day. Just think of it as breakfast, lunch, and dinner… with snacks in between.
Also, try to eat out less. In New York, it's normal to eat out most nights and there is also usually alcohol involved. This pattern will never work if you are trying to get in shape. I see people spend hours in the gym with little to no results and this is usually because of their poor diet. A good eating plan does not have to be expensive food from a specialty store — just eat real food.
Three months out, I would start getting more serious with the diet. At this point, stick to just water and green tea for hydration. Eat plenty of grilled chicken, fish, and turkey with lots of green vegetables for your main meals, and eat things like unsalted nuts as snacks. The only trouble you can encounter at this point would be salad dressings and butter. If you don't like eating plain spinach with grilled chicken, I suggest balsamic vinegar, olive oil, or fresh squeezed lemon or lime.
With one month left, you should only have to fine tune your diet. If you are eating perfect and still have weight to lose, try eliminating fruits and dairy. Also, make sure you are not ingesting hidden sodium. Just because you eat out and ask for grilled chicken or fish doesn't mean the chef isn't adding salt — or worse — butter! A week before the event, the main thing to watch out for is salt; You don't want to work hard for months and show up looking bloated. The final week, it would probably be a good idea to prepare and cook all your meals yourself so that you know exactly what you're putting into your body."
"There is a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to nutrition. I believe in getting to know what works best for your body. What causes you to bloat, which foods give you energy, and plan accordingly. I have a Nutrient Boost week of recipes in my Metamorphosis
DVD packages that is a great cleanse to do for one week. After the cleanse, you can reintroduce foods and you will easily be able to see which foods cause you to gain weight as well as where you store fat on your body."
