Write yourself a note
Before you start the protocol, either the night before or that same morning, write yourself a little letter explaining the reason why you are taking this life changing decision. What would you like to accomplish? Why are you trying to lose the weight and what have you tried so far that did not help you? And refer to this letter whenever you are feeling discouraged during your diet.
Drink the water
Water will hydrate your muscles, keep you constantly satisfied and help you burn the fat that you want to lose.
Make it interesting:
Search for recipes and try new flavors. Following the Ideal Protein Protocol will help you discover new flavor combinations for your vegetables and meat by just adding spices or herbs.
Don’t forget the vegetables!
Eating 4 cups of vegetables is VERY IMPORTANT because it will help your bowel movements and keep you full after the big meals (lunch and dinner). If you ever experience slower bowel movements, opt for a full cup of greens every day or talk to your coach about our Novi Lax.
Weight your meat!
A lot of people tend to deviate from the protocol by not measuring the meat. It is very important that measure the meat RAW not cooked. And always remember to check your Phase 1 sheet for the options of meat you have available.
