What Can I Drink on the Fire Starter Plan?

What drinks are allowed in this meal plan?

Rule #1,  ALWAYS stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses or 64 oz of water every day. If it’s hot outside, multiply that by two. You can also drink 1 C of coffee or tea per day, since they contain no calories when you drink them plain. But no double lattes and super-caffeinated, sugar-charged beverages from the local coffee shop. When drinking coffee or tea, remember to keep the sugar, milk, or creamer to a minimum. Also, try to replace sugar and artificial sweeteners with stevia, and cream or half-and-half with skim or low-fat milk.

Shakeology Shakes make good snacks and meals. With its 70+ powerful superfoods and ingredients, Shakeology is the healthiest meal of the day. Just one shake can boost your energy levels naturally. To keep the calorie count low during these next 5 days, stick to one shake per day.

Results and Recovery Formula is a great for recovering from an intense workout and keeping your energy levels high. During the 5-Day Challenge, limit your daily intake to one serving only after an intense workout. Don’t forget to add those calories to your daily total.

Drinks to avoid during the fire starter plan?

As mentioned before, stay away from those super-caffeinated, “energy” drinks. You’ll also need to say goodbye to alcohol, juices, soft drinks and sports drinks. While some of these drinks aren’t necessarily bad for you, they contain empty calories that are not welcome during these 5 days. Calorie-rich and sugar-filled soft drinks, in particular, add no value to your diet. Diet soft drinks aren’t any better, so get rid of them. You want to see results, and you don’t need these calories and chemicals to keep you from reaching your goals.
