Anvanca Diet – Day 4: Total Calories 1225
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.
Bacon, Egg & Cheese Puffs (12 Servings)
1/2 pound turkey bacon
5 eggs, beaten
1/2 (16 ounce) container cottage cheese
1/2 pound reduced fat Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 (7 ounce) can diced green chile peppers, drained
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cottage cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, chili peppers and bacon. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove cheese mixture from refrigerator; stir in flour, butter, baking powder and salt. Spoon batter into 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until puffs are slightly golden on top.
Have one bacon, egg, and cheese puff with your protein boost.
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.
Have a serving of the classic chicken salad from Day 1. Round out the meal with a ½ cup of cooked green beans and ½ cup of 1% fat cottage cheese.

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.
