Key Points

MEAL FREQUENCY

Eating 4-6 small meals spread about 2 ½-4 hours apart is important to your success in building muscle or losing fat. This doesn’t mean that you have to sit down at the table and eat a meal. You simply have to take in the proper amount of nutrients. Plan ahead. If you’re going to be in meetings or running errands all day, make a couple of shakes the night before or put a scoop or two of your favorite Beverly protein powder in a shaker bottle and add water when you’re ready to drink.

MEAL ORDER

The order of the meals isn’t as important as the content. There is a benefit to keeping your starchy carbs in the first half of your day for fat loss, but other than that, alter the meal order so it fits your schedule best and is easiest for you to adhere to.

Our diet plans normally designate meal #2 as a shake, but if you don’t have time to eat food for breakfast and prefer to eat on the go, drink a shake for your breakfast. If you like to eat food after training instead of a shake, eat your food. Again, the crucial factor is eating the right food types and the proper amount of calories and nutrients within the day.

FOOD PORTIONS

If you have a scale and can weigh your food, that’s fine, but it’s not essential. Don’t get overly caught up in weighing your food. What’s most important is consuming the right foods at each meal.

There are many food options out there now that make dieting and portioning a lot easier. Tyson Chicken Tenderloins make getting the right amount of chicken without a scale super easy. They’re about 2oz. per strip. If you need 6 oz., just grab 3 cooked tenders.

If you like lean beef, buy a 2 lbs. package of meat. When you are ready to cook it, score the meat into 4 equal parts with your hand and pull off your 8 oz. burgers. Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice bags are a lifesaving invention for dieters. With about 2 cups per bag, all you have to do is eat half of a bag for 1 cup. If you like to have potatoes instead of rice, get some baby red potatoes. Each small potato is about 3 oz. a piece. Cook up a small bag. Grab 2 potatoes for a 6 oz. serving.

Don’t be afraid of canned veggies if you don’t have access to fresh. Yes, they are generally higher in sodium, but you don’t have to worry about that (if you are concerned about the sodium, buy low sodium). Good old canned green beans are a staple for many dieters. Eat about one half can with each meal to up your veggie count for the day. These are just a few examples of how easy dieting can be. Why make it tougher on yourself than it needs to be?

DIET LENGTH

This is plain and simple... you should follow a diet as long as it’s working. This may be 6 weeks, or it may be 12 weeks or longer. One of the worst mistakes people make is wanting to change a diet while it is still working. Give the diet and your body time to work. Don’t give up on it too soon.

If you’re following your diet, taking your supplements and training hard, you will see results! If a diet is working and you don’t have a strict deadline, try adding calories. The goal is always to keep your calories as high as possible while still reaching your desired results. Only cut calories when it’s necessary to continue losing fat.

Supplement Recommendations

Specific supplement recommendations are listed for each nutrition plan. Here’s how you can select the best supplements to meet your goals and stay within your budget.

  1. ESSENTIAL – If you are new to Beverly International start with one or two of the supplements listed in the ESSENTIAL section of your nutrition plan. You will achieve noticeable results within the first week or two just by incorporating the essentials into your nutrition plan.
  2. ADVANCED – The next step in your supplement pyramid are the supplements in the advanced category of your nutrition plan. These supplements will accelerate your progress, and help you break through any plateaus (strength, size, or fat loss).
  3. COMPREHENSIVE – Adding the comprehensive supplements to the essentials and advanced will give you a top tier supplement regimen. (You may not be able to continue such a regimen year in and year out, but include those listed as comprehensive only when working toward a specific goal with a deadline.
  4. MAXIMUM – If getting ready for a show or other specific event, you might have to take all of the listed supplements to achieve your desired results.
  5. EVERYDAY GENERAL HEALTH – Super Pak, Fit Tabs and EFA Gold are recommended for any one desiring general health, hair, and skin benefits.
