fat loss meal plan - 3 salad recipes

Nutrition and exercise are both important parts of achieving your body transformation goals. So whether you’re looking for a way to reclaim your shape or overcome your weight loss plateau, you need to make sure you’re eating the right food to support your exercise.

When it comes to healthy eating, vegetables are our best friend. They’re a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, healthy fats and fibre that our body needs. They are even more essential when you’re trying to burn fat and manage your weight.

One of the easiest and delicious ways to increase your vegetable intake is by eating salads. It gives you a healthy nutrition boost especially low carb options on your HYPOXI days.

However, some people tend to think that salads are dull and flavourless. But they don’t have to be this way. Preparing salads is like painting on a blank canvas where you can let your creativity go wild. You can make it sweet, spicy or savoury, add texture and use various colourful ingredients.

If you’re having a hard time finding the right salad recipes to include in your fat loss meal plan, we’ve got you covered. Check out these yummy salad recipes included in our HYPOXI cookbook that you can easily prepare at home.
