I'm delighted that I am finished with my very first Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Cycle.  It was a wonderful learning experience.  I saw 1 lb of new weight loss (that came back with the E days but should go away.)

Though I have already shared these meals here, I decided to put the entire fuel cycle all in one blog post so anyone looking for fuel cycle ideas could just go to one post.  I hope it is helpful to someone.

*** Remember, fuel cycles are not for beginners. :)
