  2. Ok I have a silly question - when you say 8 protein servings - is that the number of total servings?

    1. Haylie's Metabolism Revolution plan has 3 meal maps that have different number of protein portions , depending on your meal map. If your meal requires 1 protein portion, then yes, this makes 8 servings. If your meal requires 2 protein portions, it would make 4 servings.

  4. There is almost 16 cups of vegetables so not many more would be needed depending on your meal map.

    1. At the time of posting, celery wasn't counted as a veggie since its a free food. That's been updated so you're correct
