7- a kickstart plan
Want to start getting real about healthy? Dive into our Eat Real 7-day Kickstart Plan. Created by nutritionist Chrissy Freer, it’s balanced to meet all of your daily nutrient requirements. It’s also budget-saving, family-friendly and calorie-controlled to
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.
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.
