I wasn't on the ignite plan when I wrote that comment. Now I stay away from dairy and pack Hummus, carrots/celery, baked tortilla chips (gluten free) with salsa, Apples, oranges, and almonds.
I too wanted to reintroduce bananas to my diet after the ignite phase, but I was concerned about the sugar content. My solution? I cut my bananas in half and freeze them. Then when I make my morning smoothie, I add just one half a banana to the mix. I still get the flavor and the great creamy texture, but cut the sugar by half.
I have been working out with Daily Burn for 3 months. In that time, I have definitely seen changes in my weight and strength (for the better). I can now do 30 push ups on my knees in the 1 minute challenge, but I still cannot do push ups on my toes. How do I work up to that?
My husband and I are just starting ignite, and we wants to be able to make chocolate banana shakes. I do not see bananas on the approved grocery list and I am wondering if they have too much natural sugar for this phase. Would half a banana be okay for a shake?
Is there a way to order refills of the Fuel in a bag form? My husband and I love the DB Fuel, but the containers take up a lot of space. A refill bag would be not only better for the environment, but could also cut down on shipping costs.
I love both unsweetened Almond and unsweetened coconut, but i have been a vegetarian for some time. My husband LOVES the unsweetened vanilla almond. He is a newbie, so I might suggest that as a first step.
I crave all things salty! Especially potato chips, cheese, and pickles. I know that once I take all this out of my diet, I will internally scream for them. Hopefully, the cravings won't last long. Any ideas for a healthy alternative?
That depends on what you like to eat. For me, I don't eat meat. I will eat dairy, eggs, and seafood. So a typical day for me is:
Breakfast - protein shake with almond milk and 2 servings of fruit
Lunch - normally a spinach salad with Tuna or Salmon. In the winter, I like to bring homemade soups (so I know what is in them) in a thermos.
Snack - 21 raw almonds and 1 apple.
This combination gives me the protein and good carbs I need to get through my hectic work day.
Other things I like to pack for work:
2% cottage cheese
skim milk string cheese
raw peanut butter and celery
raisins (in case I am having a sweet tooth)
Goat cheese with multi-grain flat crisps
All these help me stay on track and keep me from succumbing to the dreaded office snack machine.
