You can lose weight naturally using 6/1 Meal Plan.
6/1 Meal Plan is not a diet but a delicious lifestyle. A simple, easy-to follow, lifestyle that everyone can be successful with and that doesn’t leave anyone feeling deprived. Best of all, no matter what plan you are currently following; Keto, Paleo, Atkins, Weight Watchers, etc. - the 6/1 Meal Plan works seamlessly with all existing plans or you can adopt it as your new favorite plan and lifestyle.
Six days a week you will ‘mix & match’ your meals from our easy to follow 6/1 Meal Plan chart. You will select one food choice from either the fruits, starches, or proteins category and then combine it with unlimited amounts of food choices in category 4, non-starchy vegetables.
It’s easy meal planning at its best and you are never deprived of a specific food type because you choose if you are going to enjoy a protein or a starch and then fill your plate with unlimited amounts of vegetables.
When designing the Go Clean & Lean 6/1 Meal Plan we focused on foods that taste great, are known to reduce inflammation, and combine well in the digestive tract for optimal nutrient absorption and pH balance. While you’ll lose weight, you’ll also experience increased energy, better focus, improved sleep, less pain, and a radiant natural beauty because although it’s cliché, you truly are what you eat.
Though food combining principles can get very complicated, depending on which expert you ask, at Go Clean & Lean, we prefer to keep them straightforward. Simply pick whichever food from Category 1, 2, or 3 you are craving the most at that moment, and then fill the rest of your plate with raw and/or cooked no starchy vegetables from Category 4. You can also add up to 1 tablespoon of foods from Category 5. Easy!
Choose a protein or starch for each meal, but not both.
Eat proteins first with cooked or raw non-starchy vegetables. Do not eat protein with fruit, grains, and other starchy foods.
Although we’re pretty used to digging in the bread basket before our steaks (or legumes, nuts, seeds, etc.) it’s best to eat protein foods first as they require the most digestive enzymes compared to those required for plants and starches. When you eat protein-rich foods after starches or other food, your stomach acids will not be sufficient for their digestion.
Rice and beans? No. Rice and stir fried vegetables? YES!
Steak and potatoes? No. Steak and oven roasted vegetables? YES! Eggs on toast? No.Vegetable omelet? YES!

NUTS, SEEDS &

• If you get hungry between meals, snack on your favorite non-starchy vegetables.
• Wait at least 3 hours before changing categories.
