SIMPLE DIET JOURNEY

Posted on June 8, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

Success with the Simple Diet weight management program is similar to planning a trip or a journey. This involves: GOAL, JUSTIFICATION, VEHICLE, FUEL, RECORDS, and SUPPORT. Let’s look at a theoretical physical journey and see how this resembles components for success with the Simple Diet.

If your brother had loaned you his car to drive to Boston for a temporary position and he announced his wedding date and needed the car back, this is what you probably would do. GOAL: drive 3000 miles from Boston back home to San Diego to return his car and attend the wedding. JUSTIFICATION: you would be very motivated to return car and attend wedding. VEHICLE: classy sports car. FUEL: gasoline. RECORDS: gasoline receipts for reimbursement that your family wants to provide. SUPPORT: frequent phone calls from sister.

SIMPLE DIET SUCCESS—GOAL: lose 30 or more pounds. JUSTIFICATION: you are committed to improving your health and enjoyment of life. VEHICLE: the Simple Diet. FUEL: your physical activity brings you energy and positive feedback that “fuels” or sustains your diet efforts. RECORDS: essential for tracking your progress and keeping score on how you are doing. SUPPORT: very important for sustaining your efforts over the 12 weeks of longer required, on average.

SIMPLE DIET SUCCESS requires establishing a firm goal and making the commitment to achieve the goal. Think long and hard about your commitment to health and the justifications. Just as you would not embark on a long journey without commitment and planning, you need similar passion and commitment achieving these health-promoting goals.

Best, Nutdoc

Jim, I have a question about supplements. I take Viactiv for calcium, each chew has 20 cal and 1/2 gm fat, how does this figure in the Simple Diet?? I take 2 daily. Marti

Hi Marti, Thanks. There are many calcium supplements that do not add calories. 40 cal/d, (equivalent to 2 servings of low cal veggies) is a lot. I would not recommend this product as part of the First Phase of the Simple Diet. Best, Nutdoc
