This week I want to talk all about the food because the Revolt plan isn’t just about the workouts and incredible videos that go along with them.
The program includes the meal plans with calorie ranges from 1400-2400 calories. There is also a detox week which is about 200 calories less than the normal Revolt diet and meant to help with all the sugar you’ve eaten and will help you lose the bloat associated with high simple sugar consumption.
Each plan has 5 – 6 meals each day and will list exactly what to eat for each meal and how much based on the plan you’ve selected (they help you figure out which one to follow). The meals are well balanced and include lean protein, lots of fresh veggies, whole grains like brown rice, fruits and healthy fats and the best part is that if there is something in the meal plan that you don’t like or are allergic to there is a list of over 100 approved items that you can pick from.
One of the things that I worried about was having to make a separate dinner for the rest of my family because to me that seemed like a lot of extra work that I didn’t want to do. But what I’ve found is that a lot of the dinners are family friendly and I can make mine right along side of theirs and we can all eat together.
Here’s a perfect example. Last night’s dinner was a chicken stir fry bowl and when I told the kids when they asked what’s for dinner (like they do a million times a day each week) they said that sounds good. Win! The only difference between mine and theirs was that I pulled out some of the stir fry sauces, soy sauce, and sriracha for them to use on theirs while I seasoned mine with lemon pepper seasoning (minus the salt).
Of course their favorite so far has been the coconut curry chicken. My daughter who loves food like this even said she doubted that it would be good and then she tried it and changed her mind. Another win!
Once in a while I do get tired of grilled/baked chicken and like to find ways to mix it up but for the most part I do try to stick with the meal plan. There is lots of grilled chicken, fish, lean sirloin, sweet potatoes (which I love), steamed veggies, smoothies, and eggs… I’m not so fond of hard boiled eggs anymore.
OH.. I almost forgot about the best part! Cheat day! One day a week you get a cheat day where there is nothing planned as far as the meal plan goes and you can eat whatever you want. It can be any day of the week that you want just make sure that it’s only once. I use Saturday as my cheat day and even though I still try to be good I end up eating something that is so far from the healthy list it isn’t even funny! Usually some dessert… good thing cheat day is only once a week.
Okay, so here’s where I get honest. Do I follow the plan 100% to the T? Nope. There are days that I find it really hard to stick to the plan exactly but I do try to eat good and stick with fresh foods, avoiding the processed stuff as much as possible.
What kind of meal plan do you follow?
