Spring Break Slender Down Swaps + Freebies

If you’re reading today’s post then you must’ve it through yesterday’s shocking announcement: spring break is less than two weeks away! Fortunately, there’s the Spring Break Slender Down meal plan, a no nonsense set of meal suggestions that will help you become the lean, mean, poolside-laying, (slender) margarita-sipping machine that I know you are.

Today’s post should give you a better idea of how to make the meal plan your own.
Spring Break Slender Down meal plan swaps! | The Slender Student The swaps can be used to change up the meals I suggested yesterday. Just make sure you check the nutrition information per serving before switching things around, as everything will have different calorie and nutrient content. Of course this list isn’t all-encompassing so if there’s something you have a question about incorporating into the Slender Down, let me know!

Spring Break Slender Down meal plan freebies! | The Slender Student Freebies should get you through the day by either adding some spice to your meals or giving you something free to snack on between designated meals. Keep in mind that not every meal plan can work for everyone, so if you’re absolutely starving while on the Slender Down, you should think about adding 100-200 calories to the plan.

Spring Break Slender Down Meal Plan

So, uh, spring break is really soon. That means bikini pictures plastered all over Facebook is really soon.

If that thought has sent you running into the back of your closet, looking for the nearest maxi dress, chill. I’m here to help. Today’s post is a meal plan that will have you treating your body well during these dire times. It’s nothing extreme, because that’s not what I’m about. But, depending on your goals and your starting point, it could help ya trim down a bit before it’s time to tie the knot in your bathing suit top.

Now, as a warning, these meal plans have calorie counts on them and they get pretty specific regarding their source. If that totally freaks you out, ignore it and follow my meal suggestions in terms of portions and ingredients, making appropriate swaps as needed. The calorie count is just there for those that are interested. If you’re in that pool, I’d suggest downloading either the MyFitnessPal or Calorie King apps to your phone so you can keep track on the go.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see how I’m following the meal plan. I’ll be posting Spring Break Slender Down suggestions in case you need further inspiration from the list below. Those are just jumping off points for you to get creative.

Sound good? Let’s continue.

Spring Break Slender Down Rest Day Meal Plan | The Slender Student

Here’s the meal plan to follow on days when you don’t hit the gym. Those freebie calories can be used for a post-dinner snack like a Deep Chocolate VitaTop, or throughout the day for the little things you can’t live without– a sprinkle of grated cheese, a spoonful of salad dressing on your green salad.

*Non-starchy vegetables include things like broccoli, green beans, lettuce, tomatoes, asparagus, cucumber, eggplant, onions, mushrooms, etc. Basically not potatoes, corn, beans, winter squash, pumpkin, etc.

Spring Break Slender Down Sweat Day Meal Plan | The Slender Student This is the plan to follow on days when you hit the gym, which should happen 3-5 days a week for about an hour of combined cardio and strength training. Aim to burn at least 300-400 calories. Freebie calories can be used the same way you did on your rest days.

*Have your pre-workout snack 30-60 minutes before you start sweating, whether it’s before breakfast or between your lunch and afternoon snack.

*Non-starchy vegetables include things like broccoli, green beans, lettuce, tomatoes, asparagus, cucumber, eggplant, onions, mushrooms, etc. Basically not potatoes, corn, beans, winter squash, pumpkin, etc.
