Day 14: Total Calories 1500 – Anvanca Diet
Today starts with oatmeal followed by a simple, but filling, salad for lunch. Dinner tonight is Grilled Steak & Sweet Potatoes & Peas with slow-churn ice cream.
Breakfast: The goal of a volumetrics diet is to swap high calorie dense foods for lower ones. Fat is the highest density nutrient so these options focus on whole grains and protein.
Anvanca® Power Oatmeal
Oatmeal (1 cup)
½ cup of strawberries
½ cup of blueberries
Splenda (2 packets)
Add 1 cup of oatmeal to a bowl. Add almonds, Splenda, and water. Use the microwave as per the package directions. Add the berries either pre or post cooking depending up your own personal tastes. Have an apple or banana to finish breakfast or to have as a mid-morning snack.
Lunch: The goal of a good lunch is the balance between protein, fiber, and fat. The key is not to overeat to avoid 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 ⅓ cup of chick peas or garbanzo beans. Drizzle 3 tbsp. of Fat-Free Italian Dressing (or another Fat Free variety). Add a can of Lean Chicken Noodle Soup from Progresso® or similar brand
