The Healthy Food Plan

I recently ordered the Bodyism Clean & Lean book for some advice on the best things to eat, and I’ve found it really helpful. Sadly, we’re not all millionaires who have a chef following us around all day to cook fresh seabass at lunchtime, but other than that the book has some really great tips, especially the Bad, Better, Best sections. These show you alternatives for all of the foods you eat on a daily basis. Just one small substitution can go a long way in helping you get the body you desire.

The Bodyism system focuses on gaining a long, lean, healthy body. The creator of Bodyism, James Duigan, is a globally respected health & wellbeing expert, who trains the likes of Elle Macpherson and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The full Bodyism programme is for those who can afford a rather large sum of money, but the book is amazing value for just £12.99 – it’s become my new bible.

With regards to my food plan, I sadly don’t eat fish (haven’t done for about 10 years), but I think I will have to change this soon, as my food plan relies on a lot of chicken, therefore the lack of variety can bore me sometimes. I make sure I have one cheat day a week, partly so that I have something to look forward to on a Sunday and partly because when your body has sugar after 6 days without it, your metabolism gets a workout trying to break it down, which is good.

Here’s my plan, so you can get an idea of the kind of thing you can do yourself:

One of my favourite lunches is marinated chicken with salad and homemade guacamole. Looks good, right?!


But then oh how I love a piece of cake on my cheat day! I made this by the way.
