Eat this for dinner

Here's what I'm eating right now... I sit in my hotel room in downtown Toronto. I just returned from the Lakers-Raptors basketball game and there's no healthy food there, so I grabbed Chipotle for dinner while I watch football (and answer emails).
The Ballantyne Chipotle Burrito Bowl: Carnitas, extra vegetables, black beans, salsa, lettuce, and a side of guacamole.
I like eating BIG dinners every night. And you can too, while you watch TV or if you have a sit-down meal with the family. The secret is in these recipes from Dani Woodrum, Certified Turbulence Trainer. He shows you how to eat amazing home cooked meals for fat loss here:

PS - I hope you didn't miss these 10 diet tips...
...that I sent you this morning.
They will help you avoid BAD eating that comes with watching TV.
You know that mindless, late-night snacking that we all do...I even did it last night while writing out this list! 
I felt like such a failure (I'm definitely not perfect with my diet)...but I got over it quick. No need to beat yourself up about your diet mistakes. There's nothing you can do about it. Just move on and use these tips to transform:
1) Have a protein shake BEFORE dinner to keep you full. Worst case, have the shake after dinner rather than ice cream. Blend it with ice cubes and unsweetened almond milk.

2) Eat more vegetables at dinner. The more greens, the better. Learn to love spices, garlic, and olive oil.

3) Stay out of the kitchen/dining area after you are done eating. Removing yourself from the eating area helps.

4) Eat an apple, pear, or orange rather than a sugar-laden dessert.

5) Eat dinner later or go to bed earlier. The longer you are up, the harder it is to fight the cravings.

6) Buy pistachios (IN the shell). 49 pistachios equals 160 calories and 6g protein. Compare that to 14 chips at 160 cals and 1g protein. But only eat the pistachios if necessary.
7) Drink a club soda. Have a decaf Green Tea. Drink flavored water.

8) Keep the junk out of the house.

9) Brush your teeth or chew gum after dinner.

10) Stay busy talking with your wife or playing with your boy, not eating.

Those 10 tips will save the day!
Stay strong.
And remember...

What you are doing now is 10x's better than what you were doing last week, so keep going, and know that I am proud of you.
