Using the famous hasselback technique (cutting crosswise slits every half-inch along the chicken breast) cooks the chicken faster and ensures you get a burst of flavorful gooey filling with each bite. This quick one-pan high-protein and veggie-packed slimmer dinner is easy to make and the whole family will love it. With only 355 calories it makes a perfect 400-600 calorie meal.
Here we take basic lasagna ingredients—ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes—and skip the layering and long baking time to make a super-quick and satisfying slimmer dinner meal for the whole family.

Prep time only 25 minutes and ready to eat in 25 minutes!!!!! Serve with: Steamed broccoli and whole-grain baguette for a perfect 400-600 calorie meal!
I love the combo of sweet potato and spicy Salsa Verde in this healthy version of an appetizer classic for a great game day snack or even a savory side dish. Mash up the leftover scooped-out sweet potatoes and add them to a cheese quesadilla or regular twice-baked potatoes for a nice visual marbled effect.
This is my very favorite power breakfast packed with 44 grams of protein. With healthy fat, you can enjoy this dish anytime during the day as an elegant lean lunch or slimmer dinner without paying the calorie police. And guys, if you want to impress your lady this one will do the trick especially with a side of fresh fruit! Fits perfectly into our 400-600 calorie meal plan if you are using the Metabolic Jump Start Program!
This mixed Valencian paella – it’s what’s for dinner. I love this Spanish easy-to-make, savory dish. It’s comforting, rich in protein, and serves up a hearty dose of carbohydrates to replenish your glycogen stores post-workout. This is a clean, flavorful seafood dish. It’s easy to prepare, freezes well, and can be used to refuel after a hard workout. As usual it fits perfectly into our 400 – 600 calorie meals category and is a must try in the Metabolic Jump Start Program.
I just wanted to say thank you! LOOK MY ENTIRE BODY FITS INTO 1 LEG OF MY OLD JEANS!
Your Metabolic Jump Start Program has truly transformed my entire life! When I started 11 months ago I took a HUGE LEAP of faith I was at the end of my rope. I like so many others had struggled to lose weight. I expected to drop a few pounds but definitely not CHANGE MY LIFE!! Not only have I dropped 75lbs, 100+ inches overall, and 6 pants sizes, which is life changing on its own. I now have more self confidence and have a peaceful calm feeling inside. My anxiety that I use to struggle with is now under control and no longer consuming my life, funny what happens when your body is working the way it was meant to. Thank you for all your support!
