“Take one day at a time.

Before I we get started let me just say: I am not a nutritionist and I am not a health expert. I know that some people are going to look at this list and let out an audible “hell no”, but I’m just letting you know what worked FOR ME and if you want to do it let me know how it went for you. And with that being said, dunn dunn dunn dunnnn

So there you have it. Now before you just exit out and say “nope, never going to do that” let me just give you a couple of tips.

1: Make a smoothie every day for your first meal. Instead of using regular yogurt, use the light yogurts to save yourself 50+ calories a day. Also, while making your smoothie use cashew milk instead of any other type. Cashew milk is only 25 calories a cup. Also, always add a lot of ice to make it feel like you’re eating more than you actually are.

2: Buy lots of Progresso Light soups. They have SO MANY. You’ll never get sick of them and the highest calorie soup they have is only 250 calories for a whole can.

3: Get your carry out salad, girl! But, if you are getting one just count it as 600-800 (or more) calories or more depending on what you have in there and what type of dressing you’re using. I always add chicken, have some type of cheese in there and I am most likely getting it with ranch.

For the takeaway from this post, just make sure you are eating 1,200 calories a day. Eat what you want, for me it was obviously a lot of smoothies, soups and salads but stay in your calorie goal. To lose weight you MUST be in a calorie deficit.

There’s only 120 days till summer people, so let’s get to work!
