5.approved fruit (mid afternoon)
6.approved protein with 2 cups of veggies
7.before dinner drops(water, green tea)
For a total around 500 calories I take my drops approx 15 mins prior to eating.
I also try to get in 1 8 oz glass of warm water with 3T of ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) with a packet or 2 of Stevia. You can also make a vinaigrette and use over salads this is a MUCH easier method. I am not always great at getting in both my fruits but do fine on the rest. Sometimes I get busy and forget to eat because I am not hungry.
Ideally you should get in 5-6 mini meals a day to keep blood sugars up and also keeps hunger at bay. I believe you can have black coffee...I am not a fan so skip it altogether! However I did just read about putting flavored stevia in coffee helps with those of us that are non black coffee drinkers. So I might give that a shot I don't know.
Hope this might be of some help to anyone in need:0)
