The program involves eating packaged food - small meals every two hours.
There's little energy bars, sloppy joes, oatmeal, a dry cereal, even pancakes and syrup ( taste pretty good, but they're tiny) powdered eggs ( you can have a 3 egg portion of real eggs as your protein once a week)
Once a day you eat a "real meal"- called lean and green.
Salad and a small portion of lean meat, or tofu.
The portion size depends on which meat you choose.
You have to drink a LOT of water as well.
3 cups of coffee are allowed.
Believe it or not Half and half is way better than even skim milk when it comes to sugar content.
That's basically the goal- to radically reduce sugar intake- and also to get you to re-evaluate how you eat for the long run.
I tried to take a bike ride after the third day- from home to the office, it's about 14 miles.
Normally, I do it no problem, but it was a real effort for me to finish this time.
You have a health coach- who advised me to stick to a much more "timid ' exercise plan for the next month or so-
I wont lie- I do not love the packaged food- but since I am committed to loosing at least 30 pounds- the success I've enjoyed so far help to overcome that.
Yesterday I allowed myself one "cheat meal"- which was basically a salad, and steak with asparagus at one of my favorite gourmet restaurants- and one alcoholic drink - called an Apricot Fizz....YUMM- but basically alcohol is almost pure sugar in the system, and is not allowed on the diet.
If you need to loose weight, it's a good plan- what happens afterwards is, of course up to you and me.
Hopefully I'll learn a more healthy regimen.
