Anvanca Diet – Day 3: Total Calories 1250
Breakfast: The goal of a good low carb breakfast is the balance between saturated fat and protein. Protein and fat can help you feel satisfied, and protein can help you be more alert in morning. The challenge is to keep the saturated fat content as low as possible while still provide some variety.
Simple Quiche (serves 8)
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped (white parts only)
4 eggs, beaten
1 (16 ounce) package cottage cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup crushed croutons
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie or quiche pan. Place spinach in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until soft. Drain off any remaining liquid. Stir in green onions, eggs, cottage cheese and cheddar cheese. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with crushed croutons. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, until eggs are set.
Lunch The goal of a good lunch is the balance between protein, fiber, and fat. Given the low number of carbs, we can see an insulin spike. We provide for a mid-day snack so that you can keep your blood sugar stable.
The Simple Salad: Prepare 2 cups of tossed salad. This can include lettuce and any other veggies that you like. Only veggies – no croutons, bacon bits, etc.. To the salad, add a single serve can, which is ⅓- ½ cup of tuna packed in water. Drizzle 2 tbsp. of Lite Italian Dressing (or another Lite variety).Add about a ½ cup of cooked kidney beans. Sprinkle ⅛ cup of sliced almonds to add some texture.
Snack: Pistachios (0.5 oz), which is approximately 25 nuts.

Ricotta Cheesecake (Serves 8)
2 pounds ricotta cheese
2/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons orange zest
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Set rack in the middle of the oven. Butter and flour a 9 1/2 inch spring form pan, and tap out excess flour. Place the ricotta in a large mixing bowl, and stir it as smooth as possible with a rubber spatula. Stir the sugar and flour together thoroughly into the ricotta. Stir in the eggs 1 at a time. Blend in the vanilla, cinnamon, orange zest, and salt. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the center of the oven for about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, until a light golden color. Make sure the center is fairly firm- when the point of a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. It will sink slightly as it cools. Cover, and chill till serving time.

Anvanca is the only program that combines an effective weight loss supplement with free personalized coaching to help you lose weight and keep it off. We believe a structured meal plan is important in the first month as you learn new behaviors. Each 28 day meal plans is a different, and each has a version for men and women. The theory behind the low-carb diet is that carbohydrates raise insulin levels, and insulin causes the body to store fat rather than burn it. The average women requires 1,800 calories a day to maintain their weight. Given a goal weight reduction of a pound per week, daily calories consumption in the plan will range between 1,100 and 1,300 per day.
