Grocery List (Approved Foods)

Lean Sources of Protein

Remember portion control for protein: the size of your palm (about 4 ounces.)

Whole eggs
Hard boiled eggs
100% Egg whites in a container
Skinless chicken breast or grilled chicken breast strips (for salads)
Turkey breast
Salmon (fresh or frozen but preferably wild if you can find it)
Canned tuna in water drained (personal fav and easy)

Haddock
Tilapia
Shrimp

Low sodium ham (cold cuts)

Extra Sources of protein for vegetarians:

Tofu, lentils, beans, tempeh, veggie bacon, veggie sausages, veggie burgers, veggie chicken nuggets, veggie protein shakes, bars or protein powder by a company called VEGA or ORGAIN.

Smart Carbs

Remember portion control for carbs: the size of your cupped hand.


Steel Cut Oats
100% Natural oatmeal

Brown rice (note: other forms of rice are “ok” as long as you observe portion control but try to avoid white rice)

Ezekiel bread
Low calorie or “light” bread
Small sweet potato or yam
Squash
Quinoa
Flax Meal
Cauliflower rice (frozen section)
Low carb tortillas or whole wheat wraps

Fruits (also under the carb family)

Note: Don’t eat fruit alone. Eat it with a friend LOL - jk but seriously…

Try to have fruit along with a source of protein and try to have fruit only at breakfast or AFTER your workout.

Why? These are the two times your blood sugar is lowest so this is the most beneficial time to have fructose.

Mix fruit in with your favorite protein shake, have along with your favorite “ready-to-go” protein shake, have it along with your breakfast egg whites, along with a protein bar, on top of 0-2% Greek yogurt or 0-2% Cottage cheese or at minimum along with a handful of nuts.

Mixed berries
Strawberries
Blueberries
Raspberries

Grapefruit 

Apples or Oranges

Bananas (limit to eating 1/3 to 1/2 and useful in protein shakes)

Veggies

Remember portion control for veggies: the size of your clenched fist.

Fresh or frozen is fine. Steamfresh found in the frozen section makes things really easy to “green up” your plate!

Spinach

Broccoli
Cauliflower

Green Peppers
Red Peppers
Hot peppers

Cucumber

Red onion
White onion
Lettuce 

Mushrooms

Franks hot sauce or Avocado hot sauce
Sugar-free low calorie breakfast maple syrup

Alcohol

Note: Alcohol will take away from the amount of calories you can eat. I would strongly consider limiting alcohol consumption to 3 alcoholic beverages per week if you want to see faster fat loss.

If you are going to have alcohol like margaritas or mixed drinks please purchase “sugar free margarita” mixes from Amazon which will save you tons of extra sugar and calories.  Baja bobs and Skinny mixes are 2 good options to buy.

1 shot = 1.5 ounces of alcohol = about 100 calories

1 glass of wine is 5 ounces = about 120-150 calories
