(Body) Fat Loss Recipes
Steak & Eggs & Clean Avo Salsa
After going through a body transformation, achieving significant weight loss and some muscle gain, I’ve had a lot of questions, specifically on what I’m eating.
Because I love you all so much, below is exactly what I ate to lose body fat and increase muscle mass. These recipes are pretty simple, very easy, relatively quick, and definitely boring. You can add more spices, veggies, or whatever else you’d like to make them your own. I encourage you to get creative with these or just follow them exactly. Either is fine, of course.
Note: If you are going to embark on a body fat loss program or way of eating, I encourage you to make a large quantity of meals or recipes at a time. If you’re going to be doing a fat loss program you will want to EAT and eat often. I recommend 4-6 oz of chicken or lean protein EVERY 2.5-3 hours. That’s a LOT of chicken a day so you’ll want to make large amounts of chicken every time you cook so you’re not living (literally) in the kitchen. Make enough for at least 2 days!
Note 2: Don’t give up!!!!!! Change WILL happen if you give it time! This is imperative. If you are TRULY wanting to change your body you have to give it time. I don’t mean a week. I mean a MONTH at least, of eating lean, clean, and often. You will NOT see results overnight unless you give it time- only then will you wake up one morning and look in the mirror to a changed body! Try these recipes and ways of eating for at least 30 days!
Basic Fat Loss Chicken Recipe
Easy to prepare, super lean, and fat loss fighter of a recipe.
- 2 lbs chicken breast
- 1-2 lemons, oranges, persimmon or other citrus fruit, cut into 1/2 inch slices
- Spices: cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic powder, dried basil, pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place chicken breasts onto a large glass Pyrex dish. Sprinkle with whatever salt-free spices you’d like. Place lemon or orange slices on top of each chicken breast.
Optional to cover the dish with tin foil or to leave uncovered, place dish in the oven for 45 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Remove chicken from oven and measure into containers, 4-6 oz of chicken each.
Super easy, absolutely delicious, fat burning and muscle builder of a recipe.
- 1 lb thinly cut steak, such as flank or flat iron steak
- 1 lb calamari steak
- Garlic powder, paprika, pepper
- 1 tsp olive oil
Season your proteins on both sides. Steak, I use pepper. Calamari steak I use garlic powder, paprika, and pepper.
Preheat a non-stick skillet on high heat for 1-2 minutes. Add olive oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add steak to the heated oil and pan. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for about 4 minutes per side.
Remove from pan, set aside on a plate or cutting board. Do not cut into the steak! Let it “rest.”
In the same pan, add a little more olive oil, heating for 30 seconds then add the calamari steaks. Cook these at medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. The calamari should cook fairly quickly.
When calamari is done, remove from heat and set aside.
Slice your flat iron steak thinly against the grain of the meat.
On a plate, add 3-4 oz of steak and 3-4 oz of whole calamari steak.
Add a side of salad and you’re ready to eat!
Flank Steak & Eggs (with Cilantro & Kale)
- 1/2 lb flank steak (or flat iron steak)
- 3 eggs or 5-6 egg whites
- 1/4 cup cilantro, washed and roughly chopped
- 1-2 green onions, sliced thinly into rounds
- 1-2 cups kale, roughly chopped
In a skillet, heat 1 tsp olive oil for about 45 seconds or until hot. Add the steak (seasoned with pepper on both sides) and cook on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes per side, depending on how thick your steak is – might need to cook for up to 8 minutes per side.
Once steak is cooked to your liking, remove from heat and place on cutting board, setting aside, NOT cutting into steak yet.
In the same pan, add eggs and scramble until cooked. Add chopped kale and toss with eggs to wilt the kale. Optional to cook for an additional few minutes to further soften the kale.
When eggs are done, slice steak against the grain, into thin strips. In a medium bowl or plate, place eggs, kale, and sliced steak, and top with cilantro and green onions.
Better Body Sweet Potato Egg Scramble (with Fatty Coffee- recipe post coming!)
- Eggs or egg whites, (4-5 egg whites or 3 whole eggs) (or use some yummy Muscle Eggs Egg Whites!)
- ½ avocado (or 1-2 tbsp almond butter, peanut butter)
- Sweet potato, 4-6 oz
- Essential Oil of choice (Cinnamon Bark, Cassia, Wild Orange)
Scramble eggs in a non-stick pan.
In a bowl, add sliced avocado, sweet potato, sprinkle with cinnamon and Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil or Wild Orange (delicious!!). Top with eggs.
Mix and enjoy!
Sounds super weird but trust me, it’s delicious!

Along with these recipes, eat lots and LOTS of veggies. Salads and other raw or steamed veggies will help fill you up so you (hopefully!) never feel deprived. It’s not about giving up foods, it’s about adding in lots of healthy, filling, nutrient-dense foods.
