Structured meal plan
I am finishing up my third time through the cycles and lost 25 pounds. I struggled with the meal plan initially, but once I found some good ideas on line, it was pretty easy. I really feel like cycle 4 is something that is do-able long term. Four people at my work have started the "diet" after seeing my results. I hate calling it a diet because it is really a way of managing your meals and your health. I call it a structured meal plan!
Bought the book at Chapters just because it looked interesting and I have weight to lose. Super easy. First 4 days I lost 7 pounds. I know it's water but it's very motivating. Enjoying this diet thus far...30 more to go.
I just started the 17 day diet four days ago and like how I feel so far and I keep looking through the book to see if im doing this right, im following everything it says to eat and the servings suggested, but I have a question, is it ok to eat proteins for breakfast like turkey with eggs or do I just have to stick to eggs egg whites and yogurt? Can I do my meals in different orders than what the book says for ex. Turkey and eggs fpr breakfast and yogurt with fruit for lunch? Just want to make sure im doing this right.
Fabulous Way to Get Healthy
I have friends (one male and one female) who lost over 60lbs each and have kept it off for 3+ years; so, I thought, what the heck-give it a try! It is SO easy; I never feel hungry. Kefir and frozen fruit with some flax seed in a blender is SO yummy and filling! A vege and turkey heavy spinach/romaine salad for lunch; second smoothie for a mid-afternoon snack and meat and roasted vege's for a supper....easy easy easy! Cycle 2 was hard for me, weight loss slowed down to a crawl, and the addition of any simple carbs made me crave them again...so, instead I tried throwing in a higher calorie day once a week and that got me back on track! That's what is so glorious about it; once you teach yourself tricks for eating healthier and staying full, and you wean yourself off diet soda and bad snacks, figuring out your own routine (within the guidelines) is very flexible. I would reccommend it to anyone, and I have!
I love this diet!
When i first started i was 180 pounds. the first 45 lbs came off with ease on this diet. The diet seemed to stop working for me after that so i started working out a lot and lost 10 more pounds. now after being off the diet for about a year i have started the diet again. Im starting at 125lbs my bmi 23. My goal is to drop another 15lbs. this is day 4 and i have lost 1 pound.
Have a question
I started 9 days ago. The first 5 days I lost 5 pounds but on the 6 day I GAINED 2. I was eating the same basic foods and following the cycle correctly? Can you help with this and what can I do to prevent this

I am on my 3rd round of the 17 day diet. I have lost 19 lbs total, but have another 20 to go to reach my goal. I have been totally at a plateau for almost 2 weeks. Can't lose another pound! Help! I have been faithful and get lots of exercise.
I have not done very well lately, but it is not a real diet! You are eating healthier, and you feel so much better!!! The recipes are great!!! There isn't one that I have not enjoyed! As soon as my life is back in order, you can bet I will be following it strictly again!!!!
Response: Thanks for the update, Darryl!
