Phase 1 is broken down hourly, so there’s never a moment in the day you’re unsure of what to do. In the morning, wake up with the sun after eight hours of sleep. About an hour after waking up, it’s time for breakfast—overnight oats, avocado toast, or Greek yogurt with granola are all great options. (You can get even more healthy meal ideas in WH‘s The Body Clock Diet.) You’ll be logging all your meals throughout these two weeks, so don’t forget to record your hunger level, what you ate, and how satisfied you were. An hour after breakfast, you can go for that coffee. Then, at 10 a.m. you’re ready for your mid-morning snack which could be an orange and nuts or an apple with hummus.
Remember, you’re eating every two hours so when the clock strikes noon, it’s lunchtime. Options include spinach salad and veggie bowls. 3:30 p.m. is time to fight temptation with a small afternoon snack. Three hours later, it’s dinnertime. Ideally, you’ll have consumed the majority of your calories earlier in the day, so dinner can be light turkey chili or spaghetti squash and meatballs. Between 8 and 10 p.m., it’s time to practice a bit of self-care that doesn’t revolve around eating. Use this time to practice a new hobby or watch your favorite show. Before bed, try a mini-meditation to ready yourself for the next day.
