I lost 10 lbs. in the first seven days......
By Jim M. Leary - June 9, 2010
After one week, I'm having a positive experience. Once I complete the program, I will update my review with the final results. (I wish I had taken a "before" photo, but I forgot.)
PROS: * The meals are restricted to 1200-1300 calories per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner are all about 300 calories each, and snacks are about 100 calories each [3 meals x 300 = 900 + 4 snacks x 100 = 1300.])
* Servings are smaller, but you basically eat something every two hours (which will hold you over until the next two hours.)
* Food preparation is easy.
SUMMARY: This plan is easy to do and I'm already seeing results.
Today is Day 7 of the plan for me, and I've lost 10 lbs. ------------------------------------ CONS: * One week's worth of food for one person is a little pricey. I normally spend $30-$40 at the grocery store each week. If you stick to this plan, groceries (for one person) will run you about $70-80 per week... read more
This book teaches you how to eat to stay thin and satisfied for life!
By Mae - May 13, 2010
This is a pretty foolproof plan. I went into it with some reservations as similar books in the past have been let downs. But this book proved to be very practical and it's effective. I'm on the first week, and already I've been able to curb my cravings and still feel satisfied. I exercise in addition to the plan, and the food really gives me the energy to keep going. And my jeans don't feel as tight. Just goes to show that exercise alone does not contribute to achieving a healthy, lean body. Food is just as important, if not only. This book solidifies this and really teaches you the right way to eat so that you are not starved and unhappy and the recipes are easy and the end result delicious. Great book!
Answer to life long struggle!
By Aprilshowers - November 13, 2010
My only regret is that I procrastinated starting the plan for about 3 months because I was so skeptical of another "promised" answer to fast/safe/permanent weight loss....but I am just glad I finally started the plan. My husband and I are both in our mid 60's and have been unable to excerise because of knee and achilles tendon problems but that has not affected our results. This plan has exceded every promise made. It is also the only plan that has worked equally well for both of us. Every diet/plan we have tried enabled my husband to lose pounds easier and quicker than me, but on this plan we have both lost the same amount of weight and at the same rate. We started the middle of August 2010 and this is November 13th (3 months) and we have both lost over 40 pounds. We do not have any cravings and enjoy the variety of foods. When we finished the 7 week plan we just started back on week one again. I agree that when we first started the plan our grocery bill doubled but since... read more
