How to start a Day Off Diet

How to start a Day Off Diet

A Story by Kay/Hayden
"

I myself have been on this diet for 2 years and adore it! I will help give you tips, recipes, etc.

"
The Day off diet could possibly be right for you! Once a week you can eat whatever you want (WIthout going overboard)  while the rest of the week you eat healthy! Its easy to transition to and you won't have to lose those cravings you love. 


                                                           What your meals should look like
1: Start your day off with lemon water. If you do not like lemons, I reccomend oranges, pineapples, or blueberries. By drinking this it prepares your body for digestion.

2: Go big for breakfast! I'm talking scrambled eggs, fruits, yogurts. Avoid those sugary cereals and bacon. Eating big for breakfast makes you less hun gry throughout the day and you have more time to burn those calories!

3: Make a small healthy snack for lunch. Aim for those proteins, such as nuts, beans, etc.

4: Make a healthy dinner! One of the best things to use on your dinner is spinach. If you dread eating spinach, try cooking it with olive oil and garlic. 

5: If you love dessert like me, try replacing those sugary snacks with more healthy things. Try my favorite, Pineapple Cheesecake skinny bars! So sweet and tangy and only 130 calories! 
 

                                                           Tips for your eating habits
1: Drink a glass of water right before all your meals! This helps you lose weight and store all those healthy nutritions!

2: Eat your comfort foods. Just replace those unhealthy ingredients with healthy!

3:  Reward yourself! Just because the scale says you didn't lose weight doesnt mean your body isn't changing! Be happy those pants are fitting looser!

DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 300°. Fill the bottom and sides of an 9-x-9 baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment, leaving  overhang on all sides to easily move the bars out of the pan before cutting. Set aside.
  2. Make crust: Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter in a  bowl until combined, then pour mixture evenly into prepared baking pan. Bake for 8 minutes, set aside
  3. Make filling: In a  bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk , beat the cream cheese on high speed until  smooth, about 1 minute. On medium-high speed, beat in yogurt until combined, then beat in eggs until combined. Finally, beat in sugar, pineapple juice, and vanilla until everything is combined and no lumps are present.
  4. Pour filling onto the crust and bake for 30 minutes or until the center of the bars no longer moves (remove from the oven and gently wiggle the pan to check). Cool bars for 30 minutes, then refrigerate 4 hours, or up to overnight.
  5. Once chilled, lift the paper out of the pan using the overhang on the sides and cut into squares. Garnish with pineapple and store in the refrigirator. Add cherries before serving. (Optioal
