The Brazil Butt Lift Diet Plan Demystified

There is so much on the Internet about the Brazil Butt Lift diet plan that it is often difficult to discern what is accurate and what is not, which is why I felt it necessary to write about what to really expect from the Brazil Butt Lift workout meal plan when you order the Brazil Butt Lift workout program.

These are just a few of my favorite recipes from the BBL Fat-Burning Foods guide.

Before I bought the program, I did my own research on what to expect with the Brazil Butt Lift diet plan. Suffice to say, much of it was wrong. First of all to put one repeatedly seen myth to rest, it is NOT all fish and legumes.  So if you’re a fish-phobe like many people are, don’t worry. I actually was expecting some terrific new spins on grilled fish, and then was pleasantly surprised to find such recipes as black bean soup and salad or turkey meatballs.

There are only a few fish recipes in the entire Fat Burning Foods guide that you can easily substitute with another lean protein if you absolutely can’t stand fish. However, with the recipes and seasonings, you might just enjoy it more than you thought you ever would. The only time I would not recommend doing substitutions is if you choose to do the 6-day Supermodel Slimdown Plan, since the recipes were purposely chosen for their synergistic qualities and their calorie restrictions.

Brazil Butt Lift Diet Review

One great thing is you don’t have to go to a specialty health food store to find any of the ingredients, which I am thrilled about. Healthy food can get very expensive, and I don’t happen to have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s in the area. I have found everything at my local supermarket and enjoy the health food section of Stop-n-Shop.

Honestly, so far so good. I am a very picky eater, and I have to say, there has not been a recipe I tried that I did not enjoy. This meal plan has me trying new combos like chicken with spreadable goat cheese and avocado, although I am  not fond of mangoes which is something I still need to find a nutritional replacement for. Mangoes are a oft-found ingredient in everything from breakfast ideas to desserts.

Say Yes to Dessert

Yes, you read it correctly. You are allowed to eat desserts on the Brazil Butt Lift diet. While I would definitely stick with the options they give you, you can easily substitute in one flavor of sorbet for another or swap out one fruit for one you prefer. There is a dessert to accompany each meal. They’re healthy, tasty options that will curb any ice cream or sweet craving you might get during your time on the program.

Thus far I have not craved anything sweet. I still have a cashew brag on my counter that I am going to need to give away. I just haven’t even wanted it – especially with all the healthy, well-balanced whole food meals I’ve been eating.

It’s also great for other reasons though, because it gives you snack options, in addition to healthy options while you’re eating out or just on the go. I knew I had made the right choice in exercise program when I saw a recommendation for a convenience store snack – baked potato chips! That just made me feel like if I ever do really need chips during the diet due to a severe craving, I can have it without feeling guilty.

It’s hard to believe that so much useful info and wholesome tasty recipes could fit into one book.

How the Fat-Burning Foods Guide Works

Before beginning the program, you need to calculate how many calories you can eat each day, which means you will need to weigh yourself – something you will need to do as soon as you get your Brazil Butt Lift workout program in the mail.

It’s extremely  simple, so don’t worry about having to figure any complex equation. All you need to do is times your current weight by 10, then round up to the calorie level closest to your number: 1200, 1400, 1600, and so on. The diet is based around 1200 calories daily, so if you’re like most women, you will probably need an extra few hundred calories. This is where the Savvy Skinny Snack List comes into play.

Just make sure you do not go below the 1200 calorie level – this is unhealthy and will not provide you with the energy you will need to finish the workouts with energy, leaving you without zest, anxious, and irritable. And do not go above 2000 calories.

The Foods

There are so many different foods and food recipes in the Brazil Butt Lift Fat-Burning Food Guide that I can’t tell you all about it without writing a book. I can tell you that there are a ton of regular foods from onion and peppers with turkey sausage to chicken fajitas. And yes, you can eat carbs.

The Brazil Butt Lift meal plan is not one that omits carbs. In fact, there are a terrific variety of carbs that you get with every meal from whole wheat english muffins to baked potatoes. And you do not have to eat an insane amount of protein or cut out your fat. This is a healthy, well-balanced diet meant to help you maximize fat loss, getting you in the best shape of your life.

While there are fancier options for meals, there are always ways to make any of the recipes into your own by replacing some of the veges or fruits with ones you like more – the book includes an entire substitution list. I must say though, in the beginning, I really looked into the substitution list, but now, I find myself more willing to try new foods in new combinations. Most often, I am loving them. I won’t say always, but mostly.

You Can Snack on the Brazil Butt Lift Diet

If you’re over 130 pounds, then you will need to add the snacks to your diet to get your recommended daily amount calories. Of course, they are all very healthy options. They are also very interesting options that are sure to please even the most discriminating tastes – like mine!

I have enjoyed several options from the 100 calorie and 200 calorie snack lists so far, but just a few of my favorites are the Coco Loco (Chocolate Shakeology with peanut butter, water, and ice – blended…yummy!), nonfat plain yogurt topped with fruit (I like frozen fruit for this to give it a frozen yogurt texture – but it is summer right now, so that may change in the winter), dark chocolate (yes, that’s right ladies and gents…you can enjoy chocolate!), coconut water, apple with peanut butter, sorbet with blueberries, and many, many more.

The choices are many, and up to this date, I have tried almost all of them. I’m not a huge fan of hummus, but I will eat the red pepper kind, so that is what I use when a recipe calls for it. I’ve heard garlic hummus is fairly tasty too, but I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet.

Don’t Forget Your Water

One major requirement of the Brazil Butt Lift diet is that you consume plenty of water each day. While we should all already be drinking lots of water, it is a must for getting the booty you’ve always wanted. And if you don’t like drinking plain water, then fear not…there are even some terrific ideas for adding some zest to your water like lime, grapefruit juice, or frozen grapes.

Cocktails, Anyone?

And for those who need their cocktail every now and then, it does allow for it as long as you don’t forget to keep track of how much you’re consuming and keeping it very limited. Keep in mind that 1.5 oz. of vodka, rum, or whiskey has 95 calories straight. So, remember that when you add it to your favorite mixer.

A glass of wine is also okay to drink. I, personally, am holding off on any alcohol until I’m finished, I don’t want to sabotage the program in any way. It’s a lot of hard work, so I just don’t want to waste any calories I could use consuming highly nutritious food that makes my skin glow.

My Complexion’s Improved

Not sure if it’s the diet, the Shakeology, or a combination of both, but did I mention that my skin is glowing , and I have not had one zit in the past two weeks? Apparently my diet was so crappy before that I had no vitamins and minerals to give my complexion any color and control the flare-ups. I went from sallow yellow to golden in just over a week, and I have not been out in the sun yet. When I do go outside, and even when I’m just in my home, I am always wearing SPF30-SPF70.

Try the Diet You’ll Enjoy It

The Brazil Butt Lift diet is none to get anxious over. I realize that what you hear mostly is about the Brazilian-inspired dishes, but there is nothing too exotic in there. There are a few areas where cinnamon is added to some things that I never would’ve thought of adding it, and there are some shrimp, tilapia, and mango, but there has been nothing where I’ve been overwhelmed by the exotic flavor.

Anyone will love the Brazil Butt Lift meal plan. It has enough delicious, healthy regular foods that you should feel satiated all the time and not want to binge on chocolate chip cookies or potato chips. From my experience with Zone diets, Atkins diets, P90X diets and so on, I have to say that this is the ONLY diet plan I have ever tried that I have boasted of, given recipes to friends and family, and truly enjoyed. It’s so good, it’s almost worth ordering the workout program just for this.

It is a way to eat healthy and clean meals that are tasty and easy to prepare.
