Weeks 3 to 12

Balance carbs and protein, get fats down

Guidelines:
Try to get equal amounts of grams of carbs and protein in each meal. Extra protein is ok, but don't have more than double the amount if carbs to protein in any meal. Shoot for overall balance of carbs and protein in the day and keep fats below 10g in a meal, and at 20% of your total calories.

Weeks 5 to 12

Reduce Sodium

Guidelines:
Don't go over 2800 mg sodium in a day, and keep your per meal cap at 400 mg. High sodium leads to water retention which increases blood pressure, makes you tired and leads to hardening of the arteries. You need 1400 mg per day, but you are safe up to 2800mg.
