Kitty Finklea, dietician and nutritionist for Florence’s Biggest Loser, encouraged contestants Tuesday night at the kick-off event to take control of their food. She offered them a sample meal plan (included here) to give them an idea of what types of food would help them on their weight loss journey. Here are a few other suggestions.
Breakfast: Eat something two hours after your feet hit the floor. Eating breakfast will help jumpstart your metabolism for the rest of the day.
Lunch: Soup, salads and sandwiches. Eat whole wheat bread and control the condiments.
Dinner: Eat lean meats and stock up on your vegetables.
Snacks: Two big snacks, two small snacks or one of each throughout the day. Do what works for you. Fruits make great snacks as do popcorn, yogurt and peanut butter.
