Mother's Day Fat Loss Diet Recipe

I'm reading: Mother's Day Fat Loss Diet RecipeTweet this!
Happy Mother's Day to all of the great and wonderful mother's out there!! I hope everyone had a great day!

I was lucky enough that my parents and my little sister drove down for a long weekend from NJ. I was able to get a round of golf in with my father on Friday and Saturday (it was his b-day) and took some time off from the gym since I'm starting the Turbulence Training Transformation Contest 5 tomorrow and wanted to be fresh!

Since it was Mother's Day today and my mother was here and my wife is 37 weeks into her pregnancy, my father and I decided to cook a healthy dinner for everyone. My father cooked Filet Mignon and I made my sweet chili shrimp on cucumbers. It was delicious and very healthy. With a 6 oz filet and 20 shrimp I consumed only 535 calories, 14 g of fat, 3 g of carbs and 80g of protein!!

That is a great fat burning meal! Although it's a bit pricey, it shows you can treat yourself and still eat healthy. I will post the recipe for my sweet chili shrimp at the bottom of this post.

As I stated above, I'm starting the Turbulence Training Transformation Contest 5 tomorrow and I'd love some company!! Not only do you have the chance to win $1,000, but you have the chance to finally lose some of that extra body weight in time for bathing-suit season!! My #1 goal for this competition is to get below 10% body fat. If I can get my body fat fat down that low I will have achieved my goal of 6 pack abs. I will post my entry essay and all of my measurements and weights tomorrow night or Tuesday.

If you'd like more information about the contest please check out the TT Transformation Rules here. You must use a Turbulence Training workout to compete, but I've been using these workouts for almost 5 months now and love it!

If you are wondering how you'll keep motivated during the 12 weeks, there's Its a great place to share your successes and bumps in the road with other contestants. This really isn't a competition between members as everyone considers one another family. The best part of is that you get 3 months free for signing up for Turbulence Training and the Turbulence Training Transformation Contest 5.

My Sweet Chili Shrimp Recipe:


1 cucumber, peeled, cut into thin, long strips like traditional tagliatelle pasta
1 Tbsp. olive oil, virgin
1 Lb. Large Shrimp, peeled
1 Tbsp. ginger, peeled, chopped fine
2 Tbsp. Margarine
1/4 c. dry white wine
4 Tbsp. sweet chili sauce

Peel the cucumber and slice it in a food slicer or shredder so that the cucumber is in thin, long strips. Just before service, toss with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Sweat the jumbo shrimp with the butter and ginger over medium heat in a large saute pan. Add the wine and chili sauce and swirl until the sauce is combined. Remove from heat. Plate the cucumber "pasta" and place warm shrimp on each one.

This should take 20 minutes, max!!
