Please check with your doctor/dietician before starting a new fitness regimen/diet. ~Amanda
*Suggested Meal Plan: Replace foods that you don't like with similar foods you do like. This is a guide.
Also, an EXCELLENT meal replacement shake that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND: Shakeology. I drink one everyday!! Check it out - recipes too on my site: www.tinyurl.com/Shakeology2011 NOTE: If you are doing a specific fitness program like P90X or Turbo Fire, etc - follow their routine guidelines and food suggestions! =)
