Lose Weight With Our Four-Week Diet Plan:  Week 3, Day 1

Sweet chocolate snacks, plus a hearty sandwich!

Each weekday this month, check out BettyConfidential’s exclusive tip from top trainers and nutritionists, and take a look at the daily three-meal menu from NutriFit, a health-conscious food delivery program that works with A-list stars like Angelina Jolie.

Tip of the day

Have a sweet Saturday. Instead of trying to ban everything unhealthy in your life all at once, New York-based nutritionist Keri Glassman, author of The O2 Diet, says setting realistic goals will reduce the chance of diet disaster. “Most of us have a dieting history,” says Glassman. “Get to know it and learn from it. Will swearing off sweets all together end up sabotaging you later on?” She suggests building conscious indulgences into your diet so that you can satisfy your sweet tooth without falling off the wagon. You can even turn it into a reward program: If you’re smart all week treat yourself with a handful of Hershey Kisses on Saturday (nine equals just 230 calories).

Today’s Menu

Pepper Omelet:

½ cup egg substitute
