Melt Your Belly and Ignite Your Body | Project 8 – Phase 2

KICK YOUR BODY INTO HIGH GEAR!

Congratulations! You have taken an important step toward continuing the progress you made in the DETOX Phase. ZEN Shape® can help you jumpstart this phase. In the IGNITE Phase, you will continue to eat “PFC Every 3”— a balanced combination of proteins, fats and carbs every 3 hours. Exercise will also play an important role. We recommend 2-3 days of strength training combined with 2 days of high-intensity cardio. Here’s to the next 7 weeks!

GUIDELINES TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PORTION SIZES

• Let go of the calorie mindset. Simply follow the portion sizes and the meal plan designed for your gender.

• You can measure your portion sizes by weight or with your hands (palm, fist, and thumb). Do whatever is easiest and most convenient.

• Make sure you’re hungry (ready to eat but never starving) before each meal and satisfied (never full) after. If you’re hungry before 3 hours, simply eat a balanced meal before the 3-hour mark.

• If you measure food with a scale, always measure it precooked since the weight will be lost during cooking. If you measure portion sizes with your hands, always measure after it’s cooked (only applies to cooked food).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

• Repeat the DETOX Phase if you ever feel your body is in need of a cleanse or reset.

• If you want to burn more fat at the end of the IGNITE Phase, continue the IGNITE Phase for another 4 weeks.

GUIDELINES TO OPTIMIZE YOUR RESULTS

• You will be eating in threes: eating every 3 hours with a balance of protein, fat, and carbs.

• Eat your first meal within an hour of waking and your last meal within an hour of bedtime.

• If you fall off your IGNITE or THRIVE plan for more than 3 days, you can reboot your plan by simply repeating the 7-day DETOX Phase.

• If you prefer a shake for breakfast, simply switch your breakfast and midmorning meals.

• Add a sixth meal if you’re still hungry after dinner: have a shake or a meal with protein + carb + fat.
