Let’s get down to basics now. What can you eat if you skip the meat?

It’s very easy to go meatless on Monday. Instead of having chicken, beef or pork,
just get your protein (2 to 3 servings) from beans, legumes, eggs, nuts and seeds instead.

Naturally, you’ll want to eat ample vegetables (5 to 5 servings) and fruits (2 to 3 servings), as well as, whole grains (if you choose) and small portions of quality fats (2 to 3 tablespoons).

Plus, I’m excited to learn, the Meatless Monday folks encourage you to limit sweets, sweetened beverages, fried foods, salty snacks and foods with hydrogenated oils. Of course, as readers of this Sugar Shock Blog and my book SUGAR SHOCK! know,  I highly recommend cutting out or at least cutting back on sugary foods and drinks for the sake of your health, moods and relationships.

"I blew my diet! Now what?" Does that sound like you? After your divorce, the death of a loved one or another trying time, did your eating get out of control for weeks, months or even years? Most of us have been there. Now I'm here to help you Rebound After Relapse™. Best of all, I totally "get" what it feels like to "lose" your willpower. That's because after my Mom died, I blew my diet bigtime for months, overate carbs and packed on 21 pounds -- this after eating cleanly for 14 years and even becoming the bestselling author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House). Stay tuned for my new, "I Blew My Diet! Now What?" Podcast and book.
