Krechelle Carter’s day on a plate
BREAKFAST: Oat smoothie
MORNING SNACK: Carrot sticks
LUNCH: Ham salad
AFTERNOON SNACK: Protein ball and latte
DINNER: Grilled tenderloins, broccoli and baby spinach
For breakfast, she starts off with an oat smoothie, which includes oats, blueberries, honey and coconut water.
She snacks on carrot sticks before having a lean ham salad with onion, spinach and capsicum for lunch.
In the afternoon, she would snack on a protein ball and enjoy a cup of latte. For dinner, she has grilled tenderloins, two large handfuls of broccoli and baby spinach.
‘Don’t get me wrong, most of my food is pleasant and I love a good fresh smoothie and a bit of coriander or chilli to spice up food and make it flavoursome,’ she said.
And despite following a strict healthy meal plan, Krechelle – who blogs under Eight At Home – admitted she has been happily treating herself to a ‘cheat meal’ once a week.
‘I had a cheat meal last night and wanted to make sure I burnt it off,’ she said.
‘Now I won’t have weight loss for a day or two due to that meal – that’s just how my body works… but where will I be in a week…. in a month?
‘Who cares about the next 48 hours, I ate my cheat meal and enjoyed it and I’ll work it off again. You should do what works for you.
‘I look at food to nourish not to taste great and then I’ll have a wonderful cheat meal once a week with all the flavour.’

Not only is she working up a sweat but the young mother has been leading a healthier diet
Her meal plan comes just days after she shared the secrets to her weight loss in a heartfelt blog post.
The reality is eat less, move more,’ she said.
She advised her followers who are keen to lose weight to ‘listen to your body’.
‘I’m always listening to my body and taking cues from it,’ she said.
‘This morning I had eggs and sourdough and avocado because my body was craving fuel from last nights work out.
‘I don’t listen to my body when it tells me I need a vodka and Yiros (okay sometimes I do.’
Her second tip was eating smaller portions and snacking on healthy food to curb cravings throughout the day.
‘I’m not hungry at all but I’ll continue to have small snacks, carrot stick, handful of spinach, a pear, a protein shake; keeping my system fuelled but not bloated or full,’ she said.
‘Your body will get used to this you won’t always feel like fries the first week or so.’

Her third tip was drinking plenty of water.
‘Hydration hydration hrydration,’ she said.
‘I drink a minimum of 2L of water a day; I drink herbal tea and coffee; I try and have only one milky coffee and stick to long blacks.
‘Have you tried and iced long black on a hot day or after a workout; life changing.’
She suggested adding all things green to your diet such as baby spinach, pears, apples, celery, broccoli, and kale.
‘They keep my fueled and going,’ she said.
‘They also are easily digested and aid in lowering inflammation and our full of all your essential vitamins and minerals.’
Krechelle said she aims to include two proteins into her meals everyday.
‘I eat eggs, lean chicken, lean beef (when my body craves it) and tofu,’ she said.
‘I try to have two servings of protein a day because I was to be beast mode.
And her final tip no eating after 6pm.
‘The other night I trained late and I felt sick so I got home and had a boiled egg… no biggie but if you’re having bowls of ice cream at 8pm it’s not gonna be good for anyone,’ she said.
‘It’s good for the body to fast. You won’t die. Even if you feel like it.’
