LET'S TONE UP AND NOT STARVE IN THE PROCESS

I wanted to share with you a days worth of my meals. Obviously I'm not a fitness expert or a vegan BUT I have found this meal plan to help me. This "diet" will be great for you if you are always rushing around and don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. 




At first this felt like I was constantly eating so maybe I would get a pot belly... but it has actually has kicked my metabolism up and has helped me to get more toned. I'd love for you to try it and tell me what you think.



The Sarita Diet*

 8:00 AM / Right when you wake up drink this:

 Shot glass full of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
(chase with water)
*Make sure it's raw and unfiltered, otherwise it won't work!


8:05AM BREAKFAST:

The Oatmeal Recipe:
1/2 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup water
(Microwave for 2 Min)
Then add:
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed 


1 sliced banana



Drizzle of agave nectar or honey



11:00 AM SNACK:   

Think Thin Bar (Sprouts, Whole Foods) I usually grab one and stick it in my bag so when I'm not home I can snack on something. It has 10 grams of protein and low sugar. I literally sat down in the aisle at the grocery store comparing nutritional facts and this one is by far the best protein bar for you that doesn't taste like weird chemicals.
 

1:00PM LUNCH:
Chicken Breast (Grab a large Ziplock bag and put several pieces of chicken inside, so that way it will last you a couple days worth. Pour olive oil;about 1 teaspoon per piece of chicken. Add lemon pepper, rosemary, garlic; if you have it and a few squeezes of lemon. Now, let it sit in your refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Then, heat up a pan on Medium heat and cook for about 5 min on each side) 
Spinach Salad with 2 Hard Boiled Eggs
TON

If you want dessert Sliced Apple with Cinnamon

4:00 PM SNACK:
Greek Yogurt with Granola and Blackberries

7PM DINNER: 

Half of a Sliced avocado with Baby Greens 


Side of  steamed Asparagus (dash of sea salt, pepper, and olive oil)

and a piece of dark chocolate for my sweet tooth

  11. Hi Sarah!

    I recently discovered you on instagram (the gym pictures are the epiome of fitspiration!) I am quickly becoming a big fan! You are the most beautiful model, with a gorgeous face and a stunning body. As a I do some modelling work in Ireland you are a true inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing your diet with readers, I will certainly be taking a lot from it! Nice to see it is balanced and full off fresh natural foods.

  14. Hi Sarah/ dolls,

    I have just stumbled across Sarah's instagram and im so happily surprised to see that a blog has been set up.

    As someone who is very self conscious about my shape fitness and overall look im always on the look for ways in keeping fit and healthy and most importantly motivated.
    So until sarah's next post i have a few ideas on food and exercise.

    Food
    morning - porridge plain, nuts and dried fruit.
    Snacks - fruit, nuts, plain yogurt with cinnamon & berries.
    Lunch - grilled chicken breast, salad and or why not have it with left overs from the night before such as couscous (Veg stock, mint leaves, seasoning, chilie flakes, grilled onions, courgettes finely chopped)

    remember: fruit can be very sugary so only eat small amounts.
    Try to drink a 1.5 ltr of water a day

    exercise
    3 x a week
    start with a 5-10 min warm up on x-trainer.
    interval training is best i find on any cardio machine.
    Circuit training with weights including lunges, squats, crunches, arms. (20mins max)
    Rope training
    Mix it up so it keeps it interesting and different. A lot of training can be done in and around your home so don't worry if u don't have access to a gym.

  16. What protein and supplements brand/flavor do u use?

    ReplyDelete
  17. agree- brand of supplements used and routine please!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You should up your protein since you are working out. My diet is very similar to yours except I have more protein (esp. in the morning - since that should be your biggest meal). I would rec eating Clif's Builder's Bars -- 20 grams of protein and they are actually really delish! :)

  19. Hey Sarah!

    Do you use any dressings on your salads?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A good, healthy, simple and tasty dressing i tend to use a lot is: olive oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar (optional) with seasoning. x
