If you are new to Trim Healthy Mama all the fuel types and ‘rules’ can seem overwhelming. I’m here to say that while it looks like a lot, once you start to work through it, you will realize it makes sense.
S stands for Satisfying. These are often the most common meals people make when they start because they are closer to what they are used to eating. This is because S meals focus on fats. Yup fats are something us THMs eat regularly. Fats are good for your body because they are a main fuel for your body. It is just better and easier for your body to burn excess fat if you don’t eat them with carbs.
Each meal is based on protein then you will add your source of fat with it. There is no limit to the amount of fat you can have at one setting in an S meal. Once you have your protein and fat feel free to add in non-starchy veggies or some berries.

What to Avoid
When making an S meal there are things that you do need to avoid. There should be very little to no carbs with your fats.
- Starchy Veggies- like sweet potatoes, corn, turnips.
- Fruits- unless it is a berry avoid it,
- Grains and Beans- if you want beans you can have up to a 1/4 cup in a meal but try not to do it often.
- Sugar- Sugar is never on plan 🙂
