About Chris Sloan

Chris Sloan, OPTAVIA Coach 75lbs weight loss

My name is Chris Sloan and I, like so many others struggled with my weight for years not realizing the toll being overweight was taking on my body. At the beginning of 2021 I began to take my weight loss efforts seriously and have lost 75 lbs so far on the OPTAVIA optimal weight 5 in 1 Plan! It's been amazing, and while my journey isn't over, I'm well on my way!

When I started I had a hard time finding the top OPTAVIA 5&1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best OPTAVIA recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those not familiar, OPTAVIA is not some fad diet but instead is a program designed to help those who are looking to lose weight make better choices with their health and wellness via better habits.

We've worked hard to make sure that all OPTAVIA 5 and 1 recipes listed are approved for the OPTAVIA optimal weight 5 and 1 plan.

Lean & Green Low-Carb Lobster Roll Instructions

  1. Preheat grill or oven broiler to 400.
  2. Slice romaine lettuce hearts in half lengthwise and remove a few of the inner leaves from each half to create a boat-like shape for the lobster filling.
  3. Lightly coat the insides and edges of each "boat" with butter and grill or broil to slightly char and bring out the flavors of the lettuce. (2-3 minutes max)
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, mix remaining ingredients except for the lobster mean. Once ingredients are well combined, fold in the lobster meat until completely coated.
  5. Divide lobster mixture evenly among the boats, garnish with a lemon wedge and serve immediately!

HI! I absolutely love the idea of the lobster roll but cannot get down past the taste of greek yogurt.  Is there a suitable substitute that wouldn't change the counts too much?


Thank you!
