Erika’s Diet Plan
As mentioned before, Erika has a well-planned diet plan that she follows on a daily basis. She doesn’t leave one day out. For breakfast, Thomas has her own special smoothie with the name “Break-My-Fast Smoothie”. Here is the recipe for her special smoothie:
- 1) 2 frozen bananas,
- 2) 1 cup of frozen spinach,
- 3) 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk,
- 4) 1 cup frozen fruit of choice,
- 5) 1 scoop vanilla Body Fortress whey protein powder,
- 6) 1 tbsp of cinnamon powder, and
- 7) 2 cups of nonfat plain Greek yogurt.
Blend up and then freeze it for some time depending upon how much thicker you would like it. This smoothie only contains 385 calories. So, it is quite safe to substitute it with tea or coffee. For lunch and dinner, Thomas likes to have either salad with chicken breasts or salad with fried salmon.
She eats 1500 calories a day. In this way, Thomas succeeded not only in losing weight but also in maintaining it.
