Sheri’s January 10 Day Bariatric Fat Blast Reset! Bring it on, 2020!!

Sheri’s January 10 Day Bariatric Fat Blast Reset!  Bring it on, 2020!!
It’s finally here!!  It’s time to get mentally, emotionally and physically prepped for what is to come in 2020!!  I like this time of the year. I look at it as a fresh start and a time to get my eating habits back-in-check.
I mean, who doesn’t indulge during the holidays? If you are a newly operated post-op, then maybe you were able to make it through the holidays without touching the alcohol or the chocolate mousse.  
I personally ate everything!  I didn’t go too crazy but I certainly didn’t deprive myself.  I also slept in later than normal, went to bed later than normal and skipped a few workouts.  
My pants are ever so slightly tighter ….
I am also going away mid-January for two weeks where the weather is hot and where I need to put on a bathing suit for two weeks.  This means that I need to take some drastic measures so that I drop a few lbs, and clean up my diet.  
When I remove the processed and refined foods and sugars from my diet, I start to feel happier in general.  I feel more energetic, I sleep better and I am a nicer person to be around HA.
So this is my personal nutrition plan that I am sharing with those of you who read my blogs, watch my videos and are a part of my closed support groups.  
I call it “Sheri’s January 10 Day Fat Blast”.  It is the exact nutrition plan that I am going to follow from January 2nd to January 12th.  I welcome you to join me.  
We are going to ditch the sugar, alcohol and refined carbs.  We are eating REAL food for 10 days.  This eating plan is built on a moderate protein and fat intake while being low in carbohydrates and high in fibre.
This is a plan that I made for myself so if you are not a fan of one of the foods that I enjoy, then swap it out for something that you enjoy more.
If you don’t like eggs, eat chicken.  If you don’t like avocados, use nut butter instead.  If you don’t like broccoli, eat carrots.  If you don’t like greek yogurt, substitute it for cottage cheese.  You get the point right?  
No snacking, please.  We should not be grazing all day long.  We should eat until the pouch is full and then stop.  If you never fill the pouch, then you are not using your tool as it is intended to be used.  
This plan contains 3 meals per day.
If you would like to incorporate IF (intermittent fasting), that’s terrific.  You can eat your 3 meals in a smaller window or just eat two meals.  I leave this option up to you.
  • Make sure to drink 8 glasses of water per day.
  • Make sure to walk 30 minutes per day.  If you work out more extensively, perfect.
  • Aim to get 8 hours of sleep per night.
  • We are going to weigh on day 1, day 5 and day 10 
Share your results with us!!
I like to keep my meal plans simple.  Instead of beating myself up and creating 10 days of different menus, I prefer to have two eating days in a row that are the same. This also makes my food prep easier and it cuts down on food waste.
This means that we have 5 different menus spread out over 10 days.
Day 1 and 2 are the same
Day 3 and 4 are the same
Day 5 and 6 are the same
Day 7 and 8 are the same
Day 9 and 10 are the same
