Joshua’s Weight Loss Eating Plan!

Bowl of Wheaties, or couple of granola bars. If I have time I eat eggs, gravy, biscuits.

Some non-greasy food like grilled chicken with water and vegetables. If it’s a workout day, then I load up on carbs for energy.

If it’s after a workout, I have carbs again with a protein shake. Regularly, I have vegetables with fruit and chicken or some other meat.

Snacks or Mini Meals:
Usually a granola bar or some fruit like an apple or banana.
