Here is the pattern that I am following if you want to implement it in your own menu Plan.
I try to stay close to the 3 hours and keep it doable for our daily schedules
I try to Stay away from Heavy S (Cream , cheese etc.. ) for this 8 weeks , but I do eat Deep S In my meals and snacks, just not for every meal.
Early AM – 5-530
I have collagen coffee an an apple or BAM Muffin or other fruit Usually an E
Breakfast is usually a FP or an S or Deep S but not a Heavy S
I rotate fuels here depending on what I had for breakfast if it was an S I usually have a FP or another S I do not typically have E for lunch but, I o have it for an afternoon Snack or dinner
I Usually have an E or a FP here
If I had an S lunch I make this a FP or a deep s like peanut candy or skinny Chocolate
If I had a FP lunch I usually make it an E
Dinner is any Fuel Source I just try to steer clear of Heavy S for this 8 week period for our challenge.
Any fuel if I have a snack but I try to keep it lighter and usually a Fp
Like homemade Jello, Marshmallows, gluccie Pudding , Cake in a mug that is FP.
This is my idea from reading the plan book, it is not officially endorsed my the authors, although the plan is an this is according to the plan.
Keep in mind that while we are utilizing Fuel pulls on this challenge, eating only fuel pulls is NOT a part of the trim Healthy mama Plan or lifestyle.
Read chapter 1 in the plan book and get a little insight into the reasons why, if you have forgotten.
Anyway… Here we go ..
I am excited and Happy for you as we start this challenge! I hope that your journey with me these 8 weeks brings you weight loss and health you Desire!
It is going to work, commitment and dedication to follow the plan the whole 8 weeks special occasions and all and step out and get some exercise 30 minutes a day 5 days a week.
My plan is to incorporate weights 3 days a week to keep my bones healthy and strong I am using Jillians Ripped in 30 Ripped in 30,
but there are alot of free videos on youtube if you want to follow along

- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 (15oz) can black beans rinsed

- 1 tsp. mct oil
- 1⁄2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1⁄2 tsp. ground coriander
- 2 Tbsp. non-fat sour cream or fat free greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
- Wash and dry potatoes. Put in the microwave bag, and microwave on high for 5-6 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes. Alternately, can bake at 425 degrees for about an hour or microwave without the bag for 12-15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine beans, tomato, oil, cumin, coriander, and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high until just heated through, about 2-3 minutes.
- When cool enough to handle, slash each sweet potato lengthwise, press open to make a well in the center, and spoon the bean mixture into the well. Top each with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of parsley.
