You saw her Transformation here and we know how nutrition plays such an important role in making changes to the body composition. Let’s dive into the details.

Manisha was at 217 lbs when she decided to see a dietitian close to her home who could also create a personalized meal plan because she was borderline diabetic at that point. Her 2 visits to the dietitian were covered by insurance because this was to prevent disease.

Here’s a sample meal plan that she followed. Remember, everyone’s responds differently to different macros, so its important to follow a guided plan by a specialist based on your needs and body type. A generic meal plan fits for most people which is on this website but the specialists exist for a reason. Please talk to your Dietitian, Physician and/or your Nutritionist before starting any New Fitness Program or a Diet Plan. 

Here’s what Manisha told me over the phone this morning

“Breakfast (8AM)

  • 2 Whole Eggs (OR 1 Whole egg and 2-3 egg whites) cooked in little bit oil
  • 2 Slices Whole Wheat Toast
  • 1 Cup Indian Tea

10 AM 

Treadmill walk for 40 minutes. Because of the weight I carried, I could sometimes not do workouts from the Alpha Phase of Focus T25 so I went for the treadmill. Something is always better than nothing.

Snack (11 AM)

  • 1 whole apple w/1 tbsp Cashew Butter

Lunch (2 PM)

  • 1 Cup Daal cooked in Desi Ghee
  • 2 Whole Wheat Chapatis
  • 1/3 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • Salad
  • Vegetables
  • Little bit chicken

Around 4-5 PM

  • 2 Slices Whole Wheat Toast 
  • 2-3 slices lean turkey
  • Little bit of cheese
  • Green Pudina Chutney
  • English Tea (dip-dip with water)

Dinner (8 PM)

  • 3-4 oz of Lean Chicken Breast 
  • White potato
  • Vegetables
  • Dash of Olive Oil

After 6 months or so, I introduced Shakeology to my post-workout recovery meal 

I kept it simple and did not diet. I changed my lifestyle. I did not starve myself. I did not go super-low carbs, but I did count my carbs. But not crazy super low. I kept balance in my food, no low fat, no low carb, no high protein, none of that and just focused on healthy fats and complex carbs. If I finished my quota on carbs, I would get some protein to fill me.”
