I’m doing this right along with you. I started on the 25th as well, and was so happy to google and find your blog. Thanks for starting it!
Yay! I’m so glad you found my blog. Make sure you sign up at the bottom of the page (right hand side) to get updates!! How are you doing so far on the diet?
I started on Monday and was happy to get on the scale on Tuesday morning and be 2 pounds lighter. I have been following it exactly and gained 8 ounces of it back when I weighed myself this morning. (Thursday) GRRR….frustrating!!! Maybe I should only weigh myself once a week? I just want to see that it is working.
Regardless of your weight fluctuation, keep trucking along! If you have to weigh yourself once a week, go for it. I like to weigh everyday because when I’m losing, it keeps me motivated!!
hello. I just found your blog. I am going to give this diet a try. Wish me luck. I am a big time carb fan. Linda
Hi Linda! Good luck. I too am a huge carb fan, but once you get off of them, it gets easier and you don’t crave them as much. Make sure you sign up for my blog to keep updated. Update me on your progress!
I have decided to definitely do this diet. I will wait until June 15th. Why June 15th? Well, my hubby retires on the 31st of May and we are having a big celebration for him on June 5, his 60th birthday. Many of his family are flying in from CA and AZ, we live in PA. Anyway, he will be going to Az to spend 3 weeks with his brother and leaves on the 15th. That will give me the first 15 days on this diet to only worry about what I AM GOING TO BE EATING. I’ll check back later.
HI!I’M FRO ONTARIO CANADA.I STARTED THIS DIET.11 DAYS AGO AND HAVE LOST SIX POUNDS.I HAVEN’T CHEATED BUT CAN’T SEEM TO BE LOSING ANYMORE.MY SISTER HAS LOST 11 POUNDS.CAN YOU GIVE ME ADVICE ON HOW TO HELP ME START SHEDDING THE POUNDS AGAIN?I DO FEEL BETTER AND HAVE SLEPT THE LAST TWO NIGHTS WITHUUT WAKING UP.I ALWAYS USED TO WAKE UP AROUND TWO AND COULD NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP.I WAS NOT A COFFE OR TEA DRINKER.BUT I DID LOVE CHOCO;ATE.I DON’T MISS IT THAT MUCH.HOPE TO HEAR FROM SOMEONE.
Congrats on your weight loss so far! As far as your plateau, that is normal for your body to go through this. I think this is one of the reasons Cycle 2 is so important because you’re confusing your body. If you’re still in Cycle 1, try eating as if you’re on a Cycle 2 day and see if that helps any. Good luck!
here’s a chocolate recipe from the Drs blog
You’ll swear you’re cheating when you make this treat! Place 1/2 cup Greek yogurt in a bowl. Add 1package Truvia and 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa. Mix thoroughly. You can top it with a few raspberries if you’d like. Enjoy!!!
Oh, I can’t wait to try this! Thanks so much for posting this delicious recipe!
i stick mine in the freezer. not the same as chocolate ice cream, but it’s as close as i’m going to get without cheating LOL
Thank you for the recipe for chocolate yogurt. I started cycle 3 today . I have lost 10 pounds so far. I was just thinking today that it would be nice to have something chocolate. This will be perfect…I will try it tomorrow!
