A glimpse at Jeff Halevy's 24-hour diet shows how occasional indulgences can easily fit into a healthy lifestyle. In between his three nutrient-rich meals, Halevy snacks on treats like fat-free pudding and good-in-moderation guac. The behavioral health and fitness expert and CEO of Halevy Life in New York also understands the importance of simple, nutritious meals for busy nine-to-fivers; he prepares low-fat dinners like grilled chicken and broccoli to accommodate his own schedule.

Breakfast: Omelet with Turkey, Feta, and Spinach

"For breakfast I had an omelet with turkey, feta, and spinach on rye bread. Combining multiple food groups gives your body the adequate nutrition and vitamins to start your day and will keep you fuller longer."

Lunch: Mediterranean Salad

About 250 calories, 16 grams fat, 2 grams sugar

"A Mediterranean salad with chickpeas, hummus, tomatoes, cabbage, feta cheese, and tomatoes. For the weight-conscious, feta cheese is one of the lowest in fat, and cabbage is full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber."

Snack: Chocolate Pudding

80 calories, 20 grams carbs, 2 grams protein

"Fat-free chocolate pudding curbs your sweet tooth and holds you over until your next meal, while still remaining low in calories."

Snack: Guacamole

92 calories, 8 grams fat, 4.3 grams carbs

"Admit it, everyone cheats a couple times a week! Since you're going to do it, replace those Cheez-Its and Doritos with fiber-heavy chips and fresh guacamole dip. Other substitutions could be fresh salsa, hummus, and low-fat cottage cheese."

Dinner: Grilled Chicken with Broccoli

300 calories, 8 grams fat, 6.3 grams carbs

"Grilled chicken with a side of roasted broccoli. When you get home from a busy day, the last thing most people want to do is slave over the stove. Pre-made grilled chicken and fresh broccoli can be made in under 20 minutes. With the right seasoning and portions, it will be enough to last you into the next morning."

I tried every diet in the book in an effort to lose weight. My life consisted of lots of cardio and eating like a bird. Soon, I was totally burned out. I felt like a failure. When I finally put the puzzle together, within a short amount of time I was losing stubborn fat while building lean muscle. A new, improved version of me was emerging. Now in my mid-thirties, I’m in the best shape of my life. My story is here ==> https://bit.ly/mydietstory

Adipisci non dolores voluptate enim perferendis dolorem odit deserunt. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
