Want to eat like a Biggest Loser trainer? Fitness expert Bob Harper is sharing his typical daily menu, and revealing nine rules he follows to make sure he eats well every day.
Breakfast: Zucchini, Eggs and Salsa
Snack 1: Apple with Almond Butter, or Lara Bar
Lunch: Roasted Eggplant and Tomatoes with Quinoa Pasta
Snack 2: Protein Shake
Dinner: A Huge Salad with Chicken
Rule 1: Eat protein, fat and carbs every time you eat.
Rule 2: Roast your vegetables for added flavor.
Rule 3: Quinoa pasta, with a delicious nutty flavor, is a great alternative to wheat pasta for those who are sensitive to wheat or other grains.
Rule 4: Eat the whole egg to get the protein and the fat.
Rule 5: Bring protein powder in a drink shaker when you head out for the day, so that you can add water and have an instant protein shake.
Rule 6: Add extra egg whites to scrambled eggs for more volume – it will fill you up more!
Rule 7: Use store-cooked rotisserie chicken to make a quick, healthy dinner that is sure to fill you up.
Rule 8: Carry healthy snacks with you everywhere you go. Fruit with nut butter is a good combination.
Rule 9: Don’t be afraid to use a serving bowl to make your salad. As long as you’re filling up on a lot of veggies, it’s okay to eat a bigger portion.
