Fit Food Fantasy: 2 Days Of Flawless Eating With Nicole Moneer Guerrero

The fantasy isn't just how good and healthy these meals are for your body; it's how your body will look after you start eating this way!

Okay, here's the challenge: I want you to engage in two full days of flawless eating. Stick with my menu, and I guarantee you'll feel better than you've ever felt before. What's more, you won't experience any sudden cravings that you'll regret later, after caving in to temptation.

That's because my meals taste better than all that junk that's calling your name.

You're already on fitness journey, and 80 percent of your success will be determined in the kitchen. Follow my two-day fit food fantasy, and you'll reach a new level of nutrition, where you eat wisely but also enjoy the taste of life!

Tantalize Your Taste Buds, Build Your Body

The strain of dieting for long periods can easily derail motivation. I'm no different; I love eating and crave sweet and savory foods like anyone else. But as an IFBB Pro Bikini Athlete, and the 2009 Ms. Bikini Classic Universe champion, I have to watch what I eat.

The bikinis I wear for shoots and on stage during competitions don't leave much to the imagination, so I have to look my best at all times. So I started compiling recipes that are not only healthy, but taste good too. No more plain chicken, rice, and broccoli for me!

My fit food fantasy came true, and now I'm going to show you how yours can too. I'm not a gourmet chef, but being in the fitness industry for more than a decade has forced me to learn a thing or two about food. My recipes will tantalize your taste buds and leave them begging for more!

Your fit food fantasy, should you choose to accept it, begins here and now:
