The Petite Advantage Diet | Day 20

weight loss

Hello savages!

Day 20 of the Petite Advantage Diet.

As you all know, I have been doing Jim Kara’s Petite Advantage Diet my way. I am eating 1,100 calories for 2 days straight followed by a day of 1,600 calories day and repeat. 

I started the diet on January 2nd. I went from 169.6 to 162.6 I lost 7 lbs in 3 weeks which is not bad at all. I also had a breast augmentation done on Monday so my weight will be a little different due to swelling and surgery. I weighed myself today and I was at 165 lbs. I don’t think it’s accurate because my body is still trying to recover from this surgery. I will keep you guys updated on this!

Also today is the 2nd to last day! AHHH!

Calories and meals

A lot of my food has been take out because I am not able to cook just yet. It looks like I really need to bump up my protein because that is what I am lacking. Also I got my days confused since I’ve been out of work for a few days so I just decided to combine Friday through Sunday.

I went vegan for 2 weeks

Hey everyone! So my fiancé and I have decided to go vegan for 2 weeks. I chose 2 weeks because it seemed like it only 2 weeks based on a documentary I watched on Netflix called “What the Health” to show any benefits. 2 weeks is actually a short amount of time too. I see that there may be additional benefits without consuming animal products or dairy. Some benefits include:

  1. Reduces the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  2. Lowers cholesterol
  3. Lowers blood pressure
  4. May reverse prostrate cancer if in early stages
  5. Reduced saturated fats since you’re not eating any meat
  6. Lower BMI
  7. More energy
  8. Weight loss

I’ll post my journey on this blog. I purchased Silk nut milk that comes with 10 grams of protein and I also bought Musclepharm’s new like products which includes organic plant based protein and even a vegan pre-work out. Stay tuned!

May Product Spotlight

1558474_10153994658935626_4813142429739092778_nMay Product Spotlight- Advocare Slim currently selling for $29.95 for 12 bottles(originally $39.95)

Order here

Slim contains two proven ingredients Svetol and Super Citrimax for weight management.*

So let’s talk about Svetol; Svetol is natural plant extract of decaffeinated green coffee rich in active components. There have been many studies conducted that show Svetol helps better weight management, in other words if you use Svetol supplementation 2 to 3 times a year you will notice a body fat decrease. In a human study over 60 days, subjects taking 400 mg of Svetol daily saw more weight loss, greater reduction in BMI, and more improved muscle/fat ratio when compared to placebo subjects.

To learn more visit svetol.com

Super Citrimax patented, natural fruit extract. It is extracted from the South Asian fruit Garcinia cambogia. Super Citrimax works by inhibiting enzymes that convert carbohydrates into fat and promotes an increase in the stored formation of stored energy as glycogen. If carbohydrates are not utilized for energy they are then converted into fat and stored in the body.

This is just May Product spotlight. By the way I am huge advocate of eating healthy and staying active, by no means do I condone supplementation replacing your life. Supplementation is what it means, it supplements what you already have going on in your life naturally. It’s that little extra push that keeps you going on the those days where you can’t anymore. Stay active and eat healthy people!

Late Post and Flexible Dieting

Sorry I have been crazy busy with school and work but I’m back!!!

ruth face 2014

So I decided to give flexible dieting a go. I am currently cutting. 170g of carbs, 145g of protein and 55g of fat. Anyone out there currently doing flexible dieting and could lend me a helping hand  or their thoughts? I really want to compete but I’m not sure if I should get a coach. I feel like I motivate myself enough. It’s been about 3 weeks that I’ve been cutting and I’ve lost 3 pounds. Does that sound right? Should I cut more?? I really want to lower my body fat percentage and want to look more defined. Any suggestions or thoughts would help.ruth april 2014

Fooducate

Hello there! Fooducate is an application I absolutely love that my boyfriend told me about. It is on Android and iphone. This app tells you anything you have to know about a food product you are purchasing. I highly recommend it if you are very serious about eating the good stuff. It let’s you know whether a food is full or sugar, or highly processed etc. All you have to do is scan the barcode and it will tell you everything you need to know about the food product. You wouldn’t believe how foods labeled fat free or no sugar etc are worse than the regular version of that food. I highly recommend this app. It’s so informative and easy to use. It even gives the food product a grade! So if you have an iphone or android phone make sure to download it!

What I ate today

image

This morning before I did my first Turbo Fire class I had a pre workout of a sandwich slim with a bit of peanut butter and half a banana. I found these sandwich slims on accident when I was looking for wheat bread. Basically it’s bread sliced a lot thinner and you can use it for sandwiches or burgers. They’re whole wheat and are ONLY 90 calories for 2 slices. I count calories only because I want to know exactly what I put in my body and how much I’m burning. I would recommend getting these sandwich slims. When I first got them there was only one brand but last time I want I saw they are making more. These are good carbs, no white bread!

This was my post workout/breakfast I had 2 eggs with a slice of singles cheese and a whole grain tortilla. It is okay to eat an egg a day but if you have high cholesterol you might want to start with eggs whites only. I love eggs and they’re also a good source of protein. I ran out of egg whites so I just had regular eggs. On the side I also had some oatmeal with half a banana and a cup of unsweeted almond milk blended. I would say my breakfast was under 400 calories. You don’t have to count calories but if you’re looking to lose weight you have to eat a certain amount of calories a day. I don’t weigh myself because I’m not trying to lose weight I am trying to be healthy.

For lunch I had tilapia with a tiny bit of light soy sauce and Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning. Note you don’t want to season your meat with too many ingredients. I use Mrs. Dash because it’s salt free and comes in different flavors. I had a side of cheesy brown rice I made. The brown rice I get  comes in boxes and it only takes 10 minutes to cook. I added a little bit of fat free cheese for flavoring.

For dinner I made Spanish brown rice with black beans and a turkey patty. I am still debating on working out a 2nd time tonight. Note these are all small portions. Make sure you don’t overfeed yourself. I will post the Spanish brown rice recipe soon. Keep reading!
