Below is a description of the food recommendations in the diet. Use this page as a cheat sheet alongside the book. Many people follow low-calorie diets, which make your body move to starvation mode and stubbornly hold on to weight. This diet claims to kick you out of that habit. Fat and protein are harder to digest than carbohydrates like grains and fruit, so by keeping these low, the body is soothed and encouraged. Phase 2, Unlock, allows for the mobilization of stored energy in the form of fat, so that you can burn it as fuel. There are guidelines for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets, and for a lifetime maintenance diet. The author recommends starting on a Monday so you are in phase 3 for the weekend, when the food choices are a little more liberal. Other start days may work better for you depending on your schedule. The foods listed here as foods to eat on each phase are taken from the diet book and the iPhone app.
It starts to grow, with the plant emerging from the seed. Again, thank you!!!! Did they send you PDFs? I have so much more energy and feel better about myself. I also saw little things like the author has some preference for olive oil because that is what she uses as her healthy fats in phase 3 recipes. I do this and it works for me. I am on day 26 and with almost no exercise I have lost 15 pounds!
Hi Penny, thank you so much for this outline, it is beyond helpful. In phase 2 she says to avoid rice, and in phase 3 eat only wild rice. And no to the ones that are combined veggie and fruit juices. Thanks in advance Vicky. We both want to lose 20 lbs. I read your questions online and wanted to let you know that my son and I did this diet 2 years ago and we were amazed at the weight loss. I still appreciate having the food and menu lists for the week spelled out here. Whether you want to lose or gain weight, you can heal your body by following this diet.
