Losing weight can be difficult during high stress levels or depression. Its essential to bring one’s conscious into a deep relaxed state. The aim of this booster is to ignite the passion to exercise and become healthier and stronger long term. Please do not try this for more than 7 days and please consult a doctor if you have any concerns. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have a prior condition please use caution and seek professional guidance.
The key to this week long program is the diet and nutrition.
Drink Senna tea (less than a teaspoonful of loose leaves in a big cup) ~ the key to senna tea, is to not only infuse the tea in hot water but to reheat the tea in the microwave for a maximum of 2 minutes. The maximum amount of senna passes through the water this way. Add some honey and drink. Within 6-8 hours there maybe a strong bowel movement.
Drink one cup of green tea or black coffee, alittle sugar or honey is fine.
exercise steadily – this could be a 30 minute walk on the spot, or step ups on the stairs. and lots of stretching.

Beef burger in a burger bun. one condiment. Perhaps some salad on the side, but no french fries.
One cup of juice, water, tea, or coffee with something sweet, like one cookie. Instead of having a cheat day, we incorporate small treats throughout the week, here we need to be careful not to be indulgent, so instead of having 5 small cookies have a maximum of 2.
Bolognese, make bolognese the usual way, but once its cooled, divide into 5 containers and freeze, these can be used throughout the week, some of it can be added to taco mix, and some of it can be used in soup.

Mix it all together, and simmer for 15-20 minutes till the breast has become tender.
Again let this cool down and divide it into containers. and store in the coldest part of your fridge, have it within 48 hours. (Day 2 and day 3)
Boil rice or pasta and this can be added to either the bolognese or the chicken during dinner or lunch times.
Day 2 involves having flavourful dishes, such as tacos, bolognese or chicken tikka curry, its okay to have carbs such as rice, or pasta, but the key to each meal is, portion size.
