This was on Margi Faze's myspace page - a sample menu of what she ate during her challenge (she was the 2007 grand master champion)

I think it's interesting because she doesn't follow the diet by the book, but as we all know she had great results!

 

Re-post...Most popular question I get.

The most popular question I've been asked over the past couple of months is "What did you eat during your 12-week challenge? So I've decided to post it here. Please keep in mind that this is the meal schedule that worked for me and for my weight-loss goals. You may want to consult with a personal trainer and/or healthcare professional to decide what meal plan is best for you and your weigh-loss goals.

With my meal-plan you'll notice that I always bake or grill extra in order have enough for lunch the following day and sometimes even for the third day.
