Today is a calorie deficit day, meaning you should be consuming less calories than you do on a maintenance day. We outlined three options in your welcome packet; you can aim for any three that you wish. The goal is to keep your calories lower than you do on maintenance days in order to ensure weight loss success!

Eat protein and fiber in every meal and snack. It will help you feel fuller longer and maintain a more stable blood sugar level, which translates to less fatigue and fewer food cravings.
Today you are off the hook! No scheduled workout for today. So why does it say 'Active Recovery' instead of 'Rest Day'. Well, technically there are no days off when it comes to chasing our dreams - in this case, our health and happiness. So though we haven't provided you with a structured workout today, we are not inviting you to spend an extra hour on the couch this evening. Rest and recovery are just as important as the workout themselves but the best way to optimize our weight loss success is by keeping our body loose and moving. Before you reach for the remote today, take 30 minutes and go for a walk with the dog or put on some Mozart and enjoy 30 minutes of gentle yoga or static and dynamic stretches. Now is also a great time to treat your body to some ice and heat therapy if you so choose. Be ready for tomorrow, we will be getting back to our workout routine.
