FASTBLAST MEAL PLAN
One of the great things about the FastBlast plan is that you only lower your calories for two days per week and you don’t have any particular food restrictions the rest of the time. We find that oftentimes our clients are ready for big changes to their health and they want to make better choices during the other five days as well. That’s where our meal plan comes in. The FastBlast meal plan is based on the nutritional guidelines and recommendations derived from studying the diets of the world’s healthiest people. By incorporating this meal plan, you will enhance the results you achieve from your fasting plan.
How to Adjust for Low Carb, Vegetarian, and Vegan Diets
To what some people may believe, the healthiest people on earth consume a diet fairly high in carbohydrates. That’s said, these carbohydrates are not derived from highly processed foods like cookies, cakes, candy or breads found in most grocery stores. The carbs consumed by super healthy people are derived from whole foods, mainly vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and some whole grain bread. These types of carbohydrates are filled with high-quality nutrition including vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and more. That said, if you prefer to consume a lower carbohydrate diet, you can easily do so. We have many clients who have great success by combining their fasting plan with a low carb diet.
VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN
The majority of foods recommended on this plan are plant-based but we do include some animal protein. If you are vegan or vegetarian, replace the recommended animal products with your choice of vegan or vegetarian foods. If you prefer meat, replace a few of the plant-based dishes with your choice of animal protein.
When incorporating fasting into your lifestyle, it’s important to consume high-quality nutrient-rich foods. This will help you feel energized and suppress appetite while fasting. It’s also beneficial to include an Organic, Whole Food supplement like FastBlast Daily Essentials.

For this sample week, Tuesday and Wednesday are the Periodic Fasting days. Remember, during the Periodic Fasting days, you consume 25% of your normal calories. So, if you normally consume around 2000 calories, on your Periodic Fasting days you will want to consume approximately 500 calories. This DOES NOT have to be exact, but you do want to be close to your target calories on your Periodic Fasting days. You don’t have to focus very much on counting calories on any other day, only on your Periodic Fasting days.
