Still going strong with the 4 Week Gut Protocol! Check out this week’s meal plan and learn more about the different between Red & Yellow A’s & B’s.
Gut Protocol A’s & B’s
If you’ve followed Portion Fix, you’re familiar with the colorful portion control containers.
- Red = Protein
- Yellow = Carbs
- Green = Veggies
- Purple = Fruit
- Blue = Healthy Fats
- Orange = Seeds & Dressings
- Teaspoon = Oils & Nut Butters
The 4 Week Gut Protocol uses the same colorful containers but with a little twist. Instead of just Red & Yellow containers, proteins and carbs are broken into A’s & B’s.
The Red A container list is your animal protein. The Red B container list is your plant based protein. 4 Week Gut Protocol is more plant based but still allows animal protein. Breaking down the proteins into animal & plant helps you get enough of both types.
The Yellow A list is made up of whole grains that are a great source of fiber. It’s a short list. I’ve found there are really only two foods on the list I eat: rice & oatmeal. So I’ve been alternating the two throughout the week.
The Yellow B list contains other healthy, whole-food carbs. Breaking down the carbs into A & B ensures you’re getting whole grains in on a daily basis.
