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

Find a friend. Celebrity trainer Valerie Waters says you’re more likely to stay committed to your diet and exercise program if you have someone you have to be accountable to. (That’s partly why personal trainers are so popular.) If you can’t afford one, get a workout buddy. You’re likelier to stick with it if you have someone counting on you, and vice versa. And don’t hesitate to use the support you can find in online communities and forums, including Valerie’s Red Carpet Ready Club.

Today’s Menu:

Breakfast
1 scrambled egg, cooked with nonfat canola oil spray
1 slice bran bread with raisins
1 teaspoon reduced-fat margarine
1 cup nonfat or low-fat milk

Snack
1 ounce low-fat string cheese
1 apple

Lunch
Veggie burger:
1 slice low-fat Swiss or Cheddar cheese
1 small whole-wheat bun
½ cup steamed veggies (kale, broccoli, zucchini, green beans)

Snack
2 cups watermelon cubes
6 ounces low-fat yogurt

  1. Ok, yeah right, follow this s### if you want to starve yourself and end up gaining more weight than what you lost and had before you went on this “diet”.

    How about in the morning, you eat what you want as long as it is within the bounds of one plate not two or three plates.

    How about in the afternoon for lunch you eat what you want.

    How about for snack you eat what you want as long as its not a snack looking like a full course.

    How about you exercise or take 30-40 minutes to walk and if you have kids , take them with you.

    How about a late night snack , like fish a vegetable or cereal with non-fat milk.
    Hows about them apples!!!!!!!!!
