Summer Intermittent Fasting Bariatric Edition

 
I have a gift for you. I am so excited to share this. I love simplicity in the summer months. The days are long and the weather is hot and nobody wants to be chained to a hot kitchen. Salads, smoothies, and quick recipes are where it’s at for me during these months.
 
Introducing my “Summer Intermittent Fasting Bariatric Program. This program includes a 7-day meal plan, itemized grocery list, recipes, recipe picture, and a prep guide. The focus is on simple meals that use summer produce. Each recipe takes less than 30 minutes to minimize the time in the kitchen and maximize time enjoying the great outdoors. 
 
I’ve designed this plan so that there are three small meals each day. Some of the meals are repeated for your convenience.
 
I’ve also included the nutritional breakdown in each meal. You can see how many calories/ carbs/ protein and fat are in each meal.
 
This bariatric intermittent program provides balanced nutrition without frequent meals and snacks. I’ve prepared it with the “tinier tummy” in mind. The recipes are for 1 person but you can easily double them or triple them. I personally make a bit more for my family and I am sure to have leftovers so I don’t need to be constantly cooking.
 
It doesn’t matter the hours you choose to do your intermittent fast. I personally eat from noon until 7 pm and the rest of the time I am fasting which means I am drinking water and tea.
 
If you choose to eat from 9 am until 5 pm, that’s fine. This is your personal preference and your personal plan. Do what works best for you and your lifestyle. 
 
The calories are between 750 and 950 each day. If you are hungry, add a bit more food – I’ve left you some space to do that.
 
If you don’t like a recipe, swap it out for another one. If you are not into “fish”, change the protein to chicken. Don’t get too caught up in the details and follow one of my main rules for all my clients, “don’t eat anything you don’t like” – and I mean that. I don’t like onions, so I don’t eat them. 
 
This plan I put together for you provides balanced nutrition without frequent meals and snacks. Calories are distributed between three meals per day, which are intended to be consumed within a restricted eating window of approximately 6 to 8 hours.

I hope you enjoy the plan and meals.
