Cheating Recovery Meal Plan 


Last Mother's Day, I cheated badly and ate everything sugary and sweet that I could get my hands on. This year for Mother's Day, my sweet kids made breakfast for me…and I've spent the last few weeks in a tailspin, eating whatever I wanted and feeling yucky because of it. Instead of doing MORE of that, I was reminded that last year I posted a Cheating Recovery Meal Plan, and I thought…why not use it again this year? LOL, I completely forgot that I had made a plan for myself to get back on track with Deep S meals, like Trim Healthy Mama suggests. 🙂 

SO along with last year's cheating recovery meal plan, I made another one! This is what I'm eating today. I'm also looking back at my Top Tips for Starting (or re-committing to) THM to help me get back on track. One of my favorite things about Trim Healthy Mama is that you can start over after just a few hours (you can use my affiliate link here to purchase and read the specifics in the Trim Healthy Mama book!), but sometimes, when the cravings won't quit, I need a full day of committed, healthy meals to help me out (not that the meals are committed. I am committed. Meals don't have feelings). 

What's awesome about THM is that it's not like it's one-size-fits-all. THM is adaptable to YOU! So, while Deep S is a great way to get back on track, you don't have to keep doing Deep S, or do as many S meals as I do, or as many E meals, etc. Just do what your body tells you! And if that doesn't make any sense to you, read the book. 😉

Cheating Recovery Meal Plan (Part 2):

Breakfast: Fried eggs and spinach – I like to melt a little butter in a pan, saute spinach with a pinch of salt and pepper until it's not mushy but still somewhat firm and warm, then fry two eggs (with more salt and pepper)  in the same pan and eat it all together.  

Drink 2 glasses of water

Lunch: Salad with baked salmon – I'm having spinach (it's what I've got in the fridge), cucumbers, a few green beans (cooked and chopped), baked salmon (I put a filet in at 400 for 20 minutes). I made this Greek dressing , and it was SO YUMMY!

Snack: Bacon. Because I can. And Good Girl Moonshine. Because I want to. 

Dinner: Chicken thighs, Brussels Sprouts, and Salad

Chicken thighs – I put bone-in chicken thighs on a parchment-lined baking sheet, sprinkled with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and baked at 375 for 15 minutes each side, or until juices run clear. 

Buttered Green Beans with salt as a side dish.

Salad – Just a handful of lettuce, cucumber, and leftover dressing from lunch. 

2 more glasses of water. 

Dessert – Skinny chocolate (from the Trim Healthy Mama book) and coffee. YUMMY! 

This meal plan is VERY simple, easy, and delicious. I am a super busy working at home homeschooling mama so I can't spend too much time cooking on some days! Plus, this would work well for a Deep S day of a fuel cycle. Have you cheated lately? What are you doing to get back on track?

  1. I have just been thinking to myself that I should recommit to THM. Then I saw your post. Thanks for the encouragement to begin again. I hope your THM days go as planned!!!!

  2. Hello Jenn
    Thank you for sharing this blog again. It helps to not give up. As far as I know I am following the plan and after a year have only lost 9 pounds and now am back to only 3 pounds. I am obviously doing something wrong. At first I thought it was because I started at age 57 and a lower weight, 171 pounds. I am currently at 168 pounds. I thought because I didn’t have to lose a lot of water weight as some do that was the reason why? The plan has been successful in that I don’t crave sugar and have been able to make better choices. I am disappointed though that I only wanted to lose 20 pounds and didn’t. I know we are all different and have to eat what works for best for us. I am not giving up. I appreciate all of the advice and am thrilled for those who have been successfully changed. I reread the plan book this year and it has made more sense to me. Thank you for what you do to help others.

    1. Hi Liz! I’ve been right there with you – I know what it feels like to have stubborn weight that just will not go away!

      Have you tried a fuel cycle? Or testing your hormone levels with your doctor? I wasn’t losing any weight (even with THM) and discovered I had some hormonal imbalances keeping the weight on. I’m not going to tell you to stick with it because I can’t guarantee that you will lose weight with ANY way of eating. But I CAN say that if you are eating healthy, clean foods like THM suggests, your health should be improving to the point that if you are able to figure out what the problem is with your doctor (or boosting your metabolism with a fuel cycle), you should be able to see even greater results from a healthier body.

      Hang in there, Liz, I’ll be praying for you!
