Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Pull recipes can seem challenging at first. But a THM FP can be your secret weight loss weapon. Low in both carbs and fat, a FP is both filling and delicious with one of these amazing recipes.
When you’re just starting out with THM, a FP can be daunting as you wonder what exactly you should eat, and how to make it something that won’t leave you starving in an hour. After you’ve been on THM for a while, it’s easy to get stuck making just one or two tried and true FP recipes.
Don’t get me wrong– Cottage Berry Whip is amazing (my default FP choice)! But it’s fun to try new, delicious things.
This list of THM FP recipes is especially great for those two FP days on a Fuel Cycle if you’re working on revving your metabolism or breaking through a weight loss stall.
This is Part Three of my Favorite Foods From Fantastic THM Bloggers series. I asked my THM blogging buddies to share the most popular recipes from their blogs, and you’re going to love these amazing THM FP meals.
Join tons of Trim Healthy Mamas who are feasting their way to slim with these delicious THM FP Meals. You can find the rest of the series here:

What is a Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Pull?
The Trim Healthy Mama Plan books explain it best. “FP” stands for fuel pull, and it’s a meal where you enjoy some lighter fare to change things up for your metabolism.
To really understand THM FP meals, look into:
- The original THM book — this classic book has tons of amazing, no-special-ingredients recipes that I still go to all the time!
- The whole THM Plan is clearly laid out in the Trim Healthy Mama Plan Book (the Kindle version has been on sale lately!)
- The easy, quick start version in the first three chapters of the Trim Healthy Table cookbook
You’ll need to read the book for all the details, but we start a FP meal with about 3-4 ounces of lean protein.
You can add to that up to 5 grams of fat and 10 grams of net carbs.
Is triple zero yogurt a fuel pull?
Yes! You’re welcome. 🙂
What is a THM fuel cycle?
A Fuel Cycle can help to break through a weight loss stall or maybe jump start weight loss if it’s taking your body a while to shed the weight.
A fuel cycle is a special one week plan (two at the very most) where you are much stricter with your THM fuels. You’ll have to read the THM books for all the details, but it’s a certain number of days of all deep S, all E, and all FP meals.
Why You Need Some THM FP BFFs
A THM FP snack or recipe can be a super tool to help you along your THM journey.
The lighter calorie load can be the perfect thing to balance heavier meals to rev up your metabolism.
My favorite way to use a THM FP is to avoid a crossover. For example, if I have an E lunch at 1pm and an S dinner at 6pm, but I want a snack at 3:30pm. To avoid a crossover (which too many of these may lead to weight gain), a Fuel Pull can be just what you need.
FP condiments are also great to have on hand to dress up either your THM S or E meals! They’re prefect for E’s because they won’t push you over your guidelines for fats, and they’re great to lighten up an S.
FP drinks are perfect for all day sippers or adding a flavorful beverage to complement your well-planned E or S meal or snack.
Most of these recipes have no special ingredients. But if you’re looking to save on special ingredients, I often use Amazon gift cards earned free from Swagbucks to purchase a few of the specialty items.
