I say go for it, start week one and see how you like it. Go on your trip and then if you did well on week one, do it again and then move on to week two. There is a lot of cooking involved with the diet.

Well, I would either just keep on with Week 1, or, if that seems too restricting, keep good records of what you actually eat/do so you can assess your progress when you return.

For me, bottom line is that this is a LIFESTYLE, not a diet. We don't stop living when a trip, a wedding, a tragedy, etc., shows up on the horizon, so learning to eat/exercise well has to be something we do regardless of the blips and bumps. AND it's important to remember this is a process; you will goof--overeat, underexercise, plateau, and gain, as well as lose weight--so it's important to have your goals be process-oriented rather than pound-specific.

I wish you good success.

I purchased the book. I was not prepared to start Week 1 yesterday so I thought about next Monday would give me time to prepare groceries etc. Now it turns out I will be away on a trip the following week when I would normally begin Week 2. Need advice: Do I wing it until I get back to my home environment?
