Almost as important as the exercises are the nutritional guidelines of the Bikini Body Guide. The Guide offers some basic guidelines based on the perfect macro and micro nutrient breakdown to keep you fueled for the level of exercise. If you are not yet familiar with your energy demand (how many calories you need to maintain, lose or gain weight) and the perfect macro nutrient breakdown (carbs, protein, fat and fibers) I advise you to also purchase the H.E.L.P nutrition e-book Kayla offers on her website. This also features a full week meal plan to keep you on track.
And no, this meal plan doesn’t only consists of rice, steamed veggies and lean beef and endless amounts of canned tuna ;). You will be focussing on eating wholesome, nutrient dense foods and as little “cheats” as possible. The menu the meal plan suggests didn’t differ too much from what I was eating before I started the Bikini Body Guide. The only difference is the level of carbs which is much higher than I was used to eating and the level of protein lower. I advise everyone to follow the plan and see how your body responds.
I have the advantage that I respond very well to all kinds of food, I have no allergies, no intolerances and I’m not a vegetarian or any type of nutritional extremist. On sunday I buy all my groceries for the week, stock up in the fridge and freezer and prep some parts of my meals so I don’t have to do that in the mornings. I am currently eating more than what the guide suggests, but I am 180 cm and also incorporate some weight training every once in a while because I want to make sure I am maintaining my muscle strength and not losing it due to the high amount of cardio incorporated in the Bikini Body Guide.
