I'm down 8 lbs from the start and most of that weight came off in the first week. But, that's not the best part. The best part is that I'm caffeine-free and I'm sleeping better. When I wake up in the morning, I feel rested and ready to live my life. I'm not having big afternoon slumps because I'm eating nutritionally-rich food all the time.
I feel great.
So, I'll finish the 28 day plan and then I may even do a couple more weeks so that I can get to my goal weight. I'm not sure yet... either way, these foods are going to be the main part of my diet.
So, as I enter week 4 let me give you a quick overview of the program Phase 1 (Monday & Tuesday) Includes lots of carbs in the form of sprouted grains & fruit. Phase 1 also includes lean protein.
Phase 2 (Wednesday & Thursday) Includes lots of protein & endless veggies.
Phase 3 (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) All of the above plus healthy fats. I like to call this "The Nut Butter Phase". Cashew butter is my new favorite- I love it on Ezekiel English muffins.
On Saturday night my family had pizza for dinner. I ordered it from a fundraiser at church and my good friend Jenny delivered it today.
You should know that I'm serious about this diet when I tell you that my family ate pizza and I grilled myself some shrimp with baked sweet potato wedges.
