I am often asked how I was able to get such fantastic results with Brazil Butt Lift. It’s really quite simple: diet. If you do the BBL workouts but don’t care about what you are putting into your body, you will only get half the results than if you followed a sound nutrition plan while doing the workout.
The Brazil Butt Lift Fat-Burning Foods diet plan offers a wide range of healthy, lean proteins, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains – something every healthy diet should consist of. It puts you in the right caloric range to lose weight fast, but not too few calories to put you in starvation mode where you actually retain fat instead of burning it.
Trying out almost every meal offered in the book and utilizing the key foods listed on the “allowed” substitute list, I put together my own diet for the Brazil Butt Lift – a healthy, realistic diet where I wasn’t spending a ton of money on exotic ingredients I wasn’t going to enjoy, or I would use once and never touch again. If I was going to push myself through sixty days of a diet plan, I wanted it as enjoyable as possible. Let’s just say that a little bag of Lay’s Baked potato chips was a real life saver every now and then.
What Nutritional Supplements I Used:
- Shakeology: I credit Shakeology as being the game changer on how I was successful with BBL. I tried the Brazil Butt Lift workout two times before I was able to stick with it. What was different? I drank Shakeology every day, something I did not do in my first two attempts. It made it easier to get ready in the morning and maintain a healthy diet without too much extra effort. It also kept me in my right range of calories.
What Was On My Grocery List:
- Lean Protein: I ate at least 4 ounces of lean protein at every meal, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. This included one egg white and one egg scrambled with a little bit of skim milk almost every morning or having Shakeology.
Lean Proteins: chicken, fish/seafood, turkey (white meat), lean beef, egg whites, beans, protein powder
- Complex Carbohydrates: BBL is intense and consuming a variety of complex carbohydrates I was allowed, gave me the energy to put my all into each workout. Try for 2-3 servings of complex carbohydrates each day.
Complex Carbohydrates: oatmeal, whole wheats, quinoa, barley, brown/wild rice, black beans, kidney beans, chick peas, sweet potatoes, potatoes, squash
- Healthy Fats: Eating 2-3 servings of healthy fats is proven to support healthy body function and even helps you burn fat. My favorite way to add healthy fats into my diet was almonds or walnuts as a snack, and I switched to using olive oil.
Healthy Fats: walnuts, almonds, pistachios, hazel nuts, cashews, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seed oil, olive oil, coconut oil, salmon, sardines, eggs
For those of you want more details, below is a two- day sample of what I ate. Remember when following a similar diet to adjust the calories to meet your goals.

The above is just a reference of how I ate during my first time through Brazil Butt Lift. I created it as an example of how you should also be eating, but do not be afraid to mix it up. because the more variety in your diet, the better.
One Last BBL Diet Tip
The last nine pages of the Brazil Butt Lift Fat-Burning Foods guide are very valuable. It contains a substitution list of foods for the recipes in the book, so if you don’t like an ingredient, don’t worry about it – replace it (simple!). It also includes skinny snack lists, a guide to beverages, and a guide to eating out – everything you’ll need to survive the diet plan without trouble.
What I did and encourage you to do is photocopy and print the last 9-pages of the BBL diet guide to carry with you. This way when you get stuck in a situation where you don’t know what to eat, you can refer to the print outs for guidance.
