The Hormone and Metabolic Reboot (HMR) meal plan is everything a woman needs in a meal plan to successfully lose weight, help balance hormone’s and avoid the dreaded weight loss plateaus!
Fasting, calorie counting, low carb, high carb, vegan, paleo, keto? There is so much information out there on how to lose weight it can be very overwhelming! Unfortunately most women are doing it WRONG and are often harming themselves rather then helping themselves.
Did you know that too much fasting and calorie restriction will slow down your metabolism and make you GAIN weight? That’s right but if you don’t have some sort of caloric restriction your body won’t lose weight. Confusing I know!
That is why I developed the HMR meal plan to help you avoid those pitfalls while still reaping the benefits of calorie restriction for weight loss. The HMR plan takes all of the guess work out of what to eat, how much to eat and when to eat it!
Here is how we get you the best results possible for weight loss and hormone balancing through FOOD!
*Each week we vary the amount of carbs you will be eating. It will range from 5 grams up to 125 grams.
1-2 Moderate to High Carb Days a Week
Eating enough carbohydrates at the right time resets metabolism and signals the body to produce enough hormones, such as thyroid and leptin, which help keep you at a healthy weight. It also helps protect you against unnecessary stressors that can be caused by too much fasting and eating too low carb.
5-6 Low Carb Days a Week
Eating a low carb diet may help prevent or improve serious health conditions, such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. It is one of the best ways to lose weight, reduce your appetite and lower inflammation.
When you eat every few hours you never give your body’s insulin a chance to drop. When insulin drops you can burn your fat stores! YOUR BODY CAN NOT BURN YOUR FAT STORES WHEN INSULIN IS PRESENT! In the HMR plans you will get one optional snack a day in order to help drop insulin levels and activate lypolisis (the breakdown of fats and other lipids by hydrolysis to release fatty acids.)
Each week the amount of calories you eat day to day will vary widely. We will utilize the weight loss benefits of very low calorie and balance those days with a regular caloric intake in order to prevent your metabolism from slowing down.
Chronically reducing your calories is scientifically proven to slow your metabolism. However the body will lose weight initially on a calorie restricted diet. Caloric restriction diets only work in the short-term, before basal metabolism falls in response. Daily calorie restriction fails because it puts you into metabolic slowdown. You must utilize it in short bursts the best and safest way to do that is via fasting.
Each week will have different lengths and days of intermittent fasting.
Changing the length of the fasting window each week will help avoid the dreaded weight loss plateaus. Our bodies are very adaptive which means what works at first for weight loss will stop working over time because your body will adjust and adapt to what you are doing. Keeping the body guessing is one of the best tools to use to avoid weight loss plateaus.
Fasting has the following benefits:
The foods in the HMR plan are all primal based foods. It will rotate between keto and paleo based recipes. There will be an emphasis on hormone balancing foods like good fats, fiber and plenty of vegetables!
Research shows that diets that emphasize whole foods are better for weight loss and overall health. They are more filling, have fewer calories and reduce the intake of processed foods, which are linked to many diseases.
Meal plan: Breakfast, lunch and snack is for one serving and dinner is for four.
Each week you will get a new meal plan with a new protocol for the week that implements different fasting times and carb cycling. See below for details.
