Summer Diet Plan

Give your muffin top and flabby thighs rest this summer and flaunt your newly discovered toned figure by following this summer slim diet plan.


BREAKFAST


Your breakfast should contain only 270 calories. Here are three breakfast options for you to choose from:

OMELETTE


Ingredients


Three eggs

Chopped veggies (e.g., onion, mushroom, tomato)

1 slice of whole-wheat toast 1 deal

1 cup fruit salad

Why Eat Omelette and Fruit Salad?


Overweight and obese women can, with a protein-packed breakfast,  successfully reduce 65 percent more weight than women who consume bagel-only breakfast containing equivalent number of calories. According to Louisiana State University, these women can also have 83 percent greater waist reduction.

 

SMART SMOOTHIE


Ingredients


3/4 cup (175 mL)low-fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup (125 mL) skimmed milk
1 banana
1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh or frozen berries

Why Have Smart Smoothie?


Your Smart smoothie is a good source of vitamin D, which curbs the risk of endometrial, colorectal and breast cancer, as well as autoimmune diseases. Smoothie will keep you hydrated and cool.

 

MIX IT ALL


Ingredients


1/2 small whole-wheat bagel 1 deal
1 hard-boiled omega-3 egg 1 deal
1 medium fruit, such as an apple or pear 1 deal

Why Eat Whole Grains?


Consume whole-grain breakfast to keep your blood sugar levels on track.

 

LUNCH


This meal should be inclusive of only 360-calories. Choose from the two options.

TOMATO & TUNA MELT
