Body Transformation: Sarah's Nutrition Program
My overall approach to nutrition is to make sure I eat every few hours! I do my best to always include protein and a source of fibrous veggies in each meal. Depending on what time of day it is, I will try to have a complex carb as well. I usually include a carb source for breakfast and lunch. I tend to stick to one menu and repeat my meals almost every day.
Every now and then, I will substitute different veggies and sometimes my protein source. I find that while change is definitely more interesting, keeping my meals relatively the same makes meal prep much easier. Given my hectic schedule, being able to pack my meals on a moment's notice truly helped my overall success.
I must add that my menus varied a bit as time progressed. When I first started the transformation, my trainer had me eating 400-500 more calories than what I ended up with. Also, consistent clean eating is truly the only way you are going to have major results! I agree with those who say it's 80 percent what you eat and 20 percent training.
I really had no idea how important nutrition was until I actually committed to a clean diet. It was ONLY when I did that that I was able to see results like I had never seen before.

My trainer supplemented 1-2 meals in my diet with protein powder. That was key in helping me ingest enough protein, and its amazing portability and easy prep were pivotal to my diet success!
