15 Things Under 50 Calories … To Save You on Prep

Please don’t interpret this post as me encouraging you to start snacking and eating more than what’s listed on your plan. Always try your best to follow your coach’s meal plan – it was designed just for you with a specific goal and purpose in mind. Think of this list as more of a “in case of emergency, eat this” type of thing.

Let’s be real for a minute. None of us are perfect. I know you don’t all follow your meal plans 100% all the time. We all have moments of weakness where we let the hunger cravings get the best of us and dictate our actions. In those rare moments, the items on this list would generally be considered your safest bet to temporarily silence the hunger demons so you can go back to your regularly scheduled prep, without causing any measurable damage.
