The only time I lost a really significant amount of weight was when I used Weight Watchers in conjunction with what is lovingly referred to as “Craig Diet”.
My husband lost 30 pounds in 8 weeks following this plan… but he is crazy…
There are a couple of key components to his diet:
- It is a “jump start” to weight loss
- You start revving your metabolism by eating every 2-3 hours
- You eat small portions to “shrink the size of your stomach”
- No Chocolate
- No Soda
- No Fast Food (Pizza is not fast food, although you are only allowed one slice)
I should note: My husband has no medical degree, but as he so often says, “He Knows S$%!)
Here is my menu for the next 3 days:
6:30 AM : Handful of cereal (.5 points +)
8:30 AM : 1 cup Special K (3)
10:00 AM : Banana (0)
12:00 PM : 1 Slice Toasted Rye Bread (2) with Peanut Butter (2) & 6 oz Apple Juice (2)
2:00 PM : Cup of Edamame (2)
4:00 PM : Peach (0)
So, I would have eaten 11.5 points + before dinner, leaving 17.5 for dinner & a evening snack.
The first 3 days were the worst, but then, it gets better. Update Thursday….
