do it your way

Choose your own ap­proach to this meal plan – for full ben­e­fits go all the way, fol­low­ing the plan to the let­ter or just pick ’n’ mix to suit your day.

FAST RE­SULTS

Chrissy’s in­ge­nious meal plan is 1200 calo­ries a day – the ideal num­ber for safe weight loss. And don’t skip the snacks, be­cause they help you meet your daily nu­tri­ent re­quire­ments and keep you sat­is­fied be­tween meals.

MIX AND MATCH

Like the look of the meal plan but want to mix it up? Go ahead, as long as you swap like for like, ie din­ner for din­ner, brekky for brekky and so on. Be aware there may be a slight vari­ance in over­all daily calo­rie counts (around 100 or so calo­ries).

5 DAYS ON, 2 DAYS OFF

If you find it hard to stay on track over the week­end, try do­ing five days on and two days off. Even though the short-term weight loss re­sults won’t be as dra­matic, this can help you keep the meal plan go­ing for longer.

GET FAM­ILY IN­VOLVED

Chrissy’s tasty fam­ily-friendly recipes mean it’s easy to get the whole tribe on­board with the meal plan. Visit taste.com.au/7day­kick­start, print out the meal plan­ner and then get ev­ery­one in your fam­ily to cir­cle the meals they’re most keen to try.

BUDDY UP

Get sup­port – in­vite a friend to do the meal plan with you.

STAY HY­DRATED

Aim for eight glasses of wa­ter per day. For flavour, add fresh lemon, lime, mint leaves or slices of gin­ger. Herbal teas also count.

SKIP

the sug­ary drinks and al­co­hol, as they’ll add ex­tra calo­ries. Or, swap your sweet treat for a small glass of wine.

LIMIT

caf­feinated drinks to just one cof­fee or tea per day with a dash of milk, and skip the sugar.

RE­LAX!

If you slip up, don’t give up. Just get back on
