How are you feeling? It’s day three if you are following along, time for protein. According to Haylie, Phase 2 is designed to unlock your fat stores. It’s 2 days of low carbohydrate, high protein foods. During these two days you will eat 3 high-protein, low-carb, low-fat meals plus 2 protein snacks.

Refer to the complete food list in the book.

The vegetables should be low-glycemic ones like leafy greens, which are also alkalizing. After the carbohydrate rich days which came before, this shakes things up a bit.

Expect to visit the bathroom more frequently if you are keeping up with your water.

  3. Saute until the mushrooms soften
  4. Add the handful of baby kale or spinach with the optional pepper flakes and keep stirring until wilted.

Note: if you are not on the diet, a couple of eggs scrambled in before the kale would be yummy!
