Some of you heard, but for those that didn’t, my partner and I are looking to lose weight and we’ve tried a few ways, but they don’t seem to stick. Howver, one night I was watching a Doctoroz episode on losing weight and still being able to drink wine, which is my favorite:) So, I continued to listen. In case you didn’t see it, here’s the link. The woman’s name is Lyn-Genet Recitas and she wrote a book called “The Plan. Eliminate the Surprising “Heahtly” foods that are making you Fat – and Lose Weight Fast”.
The reason we are trying this one is because we wanted to do a detox, but there was no way I was going to do another 14 day one. NO THANKS! Sure I lost weight, but again, you go back to eating what you loave. With The Plan, you learn about what is causing you to gain weight from the foods you eat and the beverages you consume.
There are 3 main things you must do everyday.
1. Make sure you have a scale as you will need to weigh yourself each morning
2. Drink 1/2 your weight in 8oz glasses. Drink 2 of them after you weigh yourself
3. Take suppliments i.e. liver detox (which is not easy to find), Probiotics, and MSM.
There should be 4 becuase you need to keep track of your weight, what you ate and the amount of water you drank.
So, I am on day one and it’s going on, but she says I won’t be hungry and well, I AM:*(, but mostly I see all the sweets around me and just want 1 piece.
Here’s what I had so far:
Cooked flaxseed/cinamon/cranberries mixed with blueberries and rice milk. Tastes OK, but weird a bit as they feel like pits.
Had mixed salad with 1/2 pear and pumpkin seeds with orange oil dressing I made which was pretty tasty.
Carrot soup with zuccini, onion, ginger, garlic and spices. Not a big fan. Don’t like the texture and not a big fan of carrots. Thank god, it’s only 2 days to eat this:)
I ate an apple that was suppose to be a snack, but as I mentioned, I was hungry:(
I’ve drank 3 glasses of the 10 I need to drink and it’s 12:30. I’m sure I can drink 8 more before 7:30pm.
Oh ya, one important thing, you’re NOT to exercise for the 1st 3 days. That’s a problem for me as I play sports and workout during lunch, but I am going to listen and do nothing.
Stay tuned to hear what were my results.
