C.A.P.E is an acronym for ‘carbohydrate adjusted, protein enriched’. This means that the meal plan promotes the intake of healthy protein options, reduces the intake of complex carbohydrates and eliminates the intake of refined carbohydrates, while still offering a healthy and sustainable balanced diet. Free CAPE meal plan subscription

We conducted our own research at MNI during the development of the C.A.P.E meal plan. We found that a carbohydrate diminished, protein-enriched diet consistently delivers better weight-loss results, especially for metabolically-challenged patients who suffer from insulin resistance, a common medical condition that makes you more prone to weight-gain. Free CAPE meal plan subscription
