This is a simple quick snack that is guaranteed to be the hit of the party! Or great for an every day snack.
Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs
6 hard boiled eggs, peeled 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled nice and small 1 avocado, diced 3 Tbsp Paleo Mayo 2 tsp lemon juice 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper or paprika 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro (optional garnish) Sea Salt to taste
Cut eggs in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out yolks. Mash yolks with a fork. Stir in diced avocados, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, bacon and salt to taste. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with cayenne lightly, or sprinkle with the fresh chopped cilantro. Is fat loss your goal for the Whole Life Challenge? Here's the prescription- follow it as closely as possible for maximum results. This program is designed to manipulate the hormones in your body responsible for fat deposits.
For the first 9 days, keep your net carbs to 30g or less per day. Net carbs = total carbs - fiber when you are reading the label. Stick to meats, veggies, nuts.
On the tenth day, everything is the same until you get to dinner, which should happen at a normal dinner time. You MUST eat a sizeable amount of carbs for this meal- fruit, pasta, breads, cookies, chips, cheesecake, basically anything you have been craving. (You're going to eat cheat meals anyway - this is the way to do it in a way that maximizes fat loss). You can pig out on carbs for the rest of the evening all the way to bedtime. Maybe even a midnite snack! Keep the first meal of this carb festival pretty low fat- like a bag of cookies.
On day 11, back to 30g net carbs per day for another 5 days, same as the first 9 days. Then, on the sixth day, eat low carb until dinner and then have your Night of Carbs.
Post workout- whey protein is recommended. A fiber supplement may help - I recommend psyllium seed. There should be a solid serving of fats in every meal - a handful of nuts, some sliced avocado, etc.
You may feel sluggish on the 3rd or 4th day of your initial low carb period- this is due to your body adapting to burning fat for fuel. It's normal and it passes. Don't give in to carb cravings- it's important to get those first 9 days done correctly.
Repeat this cycle throughout the challenge and I guarantee substantial fat loss.
Fire away with questions! This WILL work, if you work it. So work it, until it works.
