I am often asked about my daily non-vegetarian meals that I eat when I'm not on the vegetarian diet but also doing a cut or a weight loss journey. Here is one of my staple dinners that I am eating right now at the end of my intermittent fasting window:
1. Baked Chicken (4.4oz, 210 cal)
2. Steamed Broccoli (1 -2 cup[s], 31-62 cal)
3. Steamed Brown Rice (1 - 2 cup[s], 216-432 cal)
As you can see, this meal tops out at 457 - 704 calories. Therefore, even if you splurge for the higher serving amounts you still remain in a responsible calorie window for weight loss. Because you only drink water, black coffee or black tea on the Big Strong U plan; there are no additional calories added from a beverage, so this meal also leaves a little room for responsible snacking should you choose.
In addition to being a calorie responsible meal, both the broccoli and baked chicken breast are great sources of protein. So whether you're trying to build muscle, lose weight, or both; this is an extremely responsible dinner option to add to your weekly routine.
