Maintaining Simple Diet

Posted on June 14, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

Many of you have been on the Simple Diet for several months now. You are reporting, as our research shows, about 2.5 pounds per week over 8 weeks. However, between 2 months and 4 months, average weight loss drops to about 1.5 pounds per week. That is not fair, but it’s what happens. After 8 weeks, there is very little water loss and metabolism slows down. Also, there what we call “diet fatigue.” It’s extremely hard to sustain a diet for months and months. If this is what is happening to you, here are some suggestions.

First, review your goals and purpose. Your heart or passion for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is the most important ingredient in your program. Second, review your records to assess how well you are meeting program goals. (Are you eating off the diet?) Consuming 3 shakes, 2 entrees, 5 fruits or vegetables is critical. Meet your physical activity goals. Maintain careful records. And, review your progress regularly with your buddy.

Third, EAT MORE! Eat more fruits, vegetables, shakes, entrees to avoid snacking. Add more volume from non-caloric beverages or higher volume shakes. And, add more variety to your diet to reduce some monotony.

If this is not working, transition to the Second Phase that brings in a variety of new food options.

You can do this!!! Best, Nutdoc (last post for 10 days– traveling!)
