i devised this plan which, if followed correctly, is a more interesting, more free 2-4-6-8 diet.
its for people who cant just eat 200 calories, god knows i cant.
this is healthy foods that burn fast, combined with a little excercise.
i want to put this in a book, because i honestly think it works.
does anyone want to try it out?
all of you, if youre serious about losing weight and keeping it off, try this.
so i'm naming my diet, its called the sqaure diet. because you eat square meals.

saturday- repeat friday
sunday- 9.30 am: plain fat free yogurt with 1/2 cup dry oats mixed in, 2 pm: carrots and celery, 6.30 pm: steamed vegetables on piece of thick french bread
monday- 9 am: 1/2 cup puffed wheat, 12 pm: carrots, celery, salad with fish or chicken, 3 pm: 1/2 cup puffed wheat, 6.30 pm: steamed vegetables NO BREAD
tuesday- repeat monday
wednesday- start cycle over again.
the idea is, if you do this cycle maybe three times, so like 4 weeks, your metabolism stays high, your body wont be hungry and you will be healthy and still lose weight. this is combined with 30 minutes of physical activity a day, like 15 minutes in the morning, 15 in the evening to jump start your system, then to digest your food.
this is good because when you eat your largest meal at lunch your body takes the rest of the day to process the food, versus eating a big breakfast (hungry by 2 pm!!!) or big dinner (starving all day, binge eating all night).
also, the more water you drink the better you'll feel, and of course, you MUST take a multi vitamin!!!!!
the more balanced your lunch meal is (water, protein, vegetables) the better you'll be. and i promise the small snacks all day long really do help with the constant craving. the first day is designed to fight those cravings! (hence the granola bar. nature valley 'honey and oats' are they best, they come 2 small ones to a pack, eat one small one at one time and the other at the other)
variety is key!
appropriote vegetable substitutions:
greenbeans, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini.
NO: potatoes, beets, eggplant, avacados, olives.
appropriote meat/fish selections:
1/4 swordfish blade/steak, 2/3 cup chicken breast (white meat only, no bone, not cooked with skin), 1/2 cup turkey breast (white meat), 1/4 salmon blade/steak, 1/3 cup lobster meat (shredded or chopped), 5 jumbo shrimp, 1/2 cup tuna fish.
lettuce, onions, mushrooms, sliced tomato
interesting meal ideas:
healthy low fat low cal food doesnt have to be bland, throw in some garlic for a little variety, salt and pepper also change the flavor of things. lemon juice works well, flavoring meals with homeade (NOT JARRED.) salsa helps.
try using the salsa as a coating for chicken, bake it right on the skinless chicken then put the chicken with cooked white rice and put it all in the oven covered in foil with maybe a table spoon of salsa mixed in the rice, try for about 10 minutes, when you take it out you have an entire meal in one dish for you.
