On any consistent weight loss journey there is a high likelihood you will plateau after a while. Unfortunately, my body seems to be prone to plateaus. The Trim Healthy Mama plan has a cycle for just that. It’s called a “Fuel Cycle”.
I’ve been a Trim Healthy Mama for almost two years now. I’ve done three fuel cycles. I always learn something about my body during a fuel cycle. Pay close attention during a fuel cycle and you will become more attuned to your body. For example, I’ve learned my body loses weight quicker with healthy fats. I am a carbaholic, and unfortunately I gain weight quicker with carbohydrates. This includes fruit, which makes sense because carbs turn to sugar. So I’ve learned to limit my carb intake. I don’t eliminate them, because they play an important role in our nutrition and God wouldn’t have given them to us if we weren’t to eat them.
Fuel cycles seem intimidating and daunting, but they really aren’t. Look at them as a way to detox your body of chemicals and toxins from any cheat meals. Use them to learn about how your body reacts to certain foods.
Today I thought I’d encourage you by sharing a sample Trim Healthy Mama fuel cycle menu I have used. This will give you an idea of what you can eat during each phase of the cycle. I hope this helps you on your journey. Let me know how I can help!
