For those of you with infinite willpower...
Week 1 (Sunday through Saturday):
Eat all fruits and vegetables -- as much as you want. Only eat fruit before noon -- after that, eat only vegetables. Vegetables do not include kidney beans or potatoes. If you make a stir-fry of vegetables, only use a non-stick spray in the pan.
Drop fruit to one serving per day. Add one serving of a carbohydrate which would include 1/2 cup dry oatmeal with water added to have the consistency that you like, 1 cup cooked brown rice, small baked potato, or a small baked yam. Do not eat bread, muffins, or pasta for your carb choice. Add one serving of protein. A protein serving could be a can of tuna, 4-6 oz chicken breast, 6-8 oz portion of fish, or 6-8 egg whites. Continue with the vegetables -- at least 1 lb per day. An easy way to get in a pound of vegetables is to buy them frozen in one pound bags. Avoid carrots -- they have higher sugar content.
- No fruit.
- 4 protein servings per day.
- 2 carbohydrate servings per day.
- 1 pound of vegetables per day.
Repeat Week 3.
Repeat Week 3 but add in one cheat meal on Saturday for lunch. This can be anything you want it to be -- pizza, spaghetti, etc. Do not eat dessert or fried food.
Repeat Week 5.
