If you want to keep a fit and healthy body, then you need a strict regimen and that starts with your consumption with high fiber food (makanan berserat tinggi). Keep in mind that not all foods are right for everyone - some may have a reaction with some food types. What may work or react on one person may not work on the other. Eat the types of food that is right for your blood type. You can find more details online about this.
So, let's continue with our main topic, which focuses on getting fit in just a week with the high fiber meal plan. But before we dig in, let's have a good meal planning must-haves, shall we?
Now, according to Naughty Nutrition, the most important aspect of any meal plan is that it should be simple, realistic, and enjoyable. Don’t force yourself to eat foods that you don’t like simply because you saw an article claiming that they’re the next miracle food. Also, figure out what works for you and what foods make you smile, so that you know you are going to enjoy the meals you have lined up in the weeks ahead.
In addition, a balanced high fiber meal plan is generally made up of:
- Whole foods containing all your macronutrients: slow release carbohydrates like beans that contain plenty of fiber, healthy fats and good quality protein.
- Breakfast that is rich in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. We also like to have our fruits in the morning.
- Lunches and dinners containing a ton of veggies (we aim for 1/2 plate of veggies, 1/4 plant or animal based protein and 1/4 slow release carbs).
- Snacks containing protein + fiber + healthy fats to keep blood sugars stable.
- Minimally processed foods, free from artificial ingredients and preservatives.
- Minimal sugar, dairy and animal protein.
- Permission to allow yourself to enjoy foods and meals you like in moderation and with balance.
Set Up a Food Diary or Journal
One of the best tools we’ve found that works with our clients is a Food and Mood Diary. It can not only track your intake of food but using this diary and assessing how you’re feeling throughout the day both mentally and physically, allows you to see if there are any trends in the foods you are eating, your symptoms and your mood.
Using a Food & Mood Diary also helps creates a visual guide into your life beyond just the food you’re putting in your body. This is one of the best tools nutritionists use to gather insight into potential food intolerances, blood sugar issues, hormonal imbalances, emotional eating, and other dietary issues that could affect weight loss and weight gain.
