    Hello there,
    I saw your post on the ETL message board. You will not go hungry or feel deprived on ETL.
    I know the plan sounds difficult, but coming from someone who did not enjoy cooking and ate processed foods/carry out 80% of the time until a month ago, the ETL plan is not very hard to implement once you decide you’re ready for a real change.

    I suggest keep meals simple. On a typical day I have oatmeal with fruit or a green smoothie for breakfast, salad and bean soups for lunch, and steamed vegetables/stir fry for dinner. Keeping meals simple has helped me remain on the plan for 5 weeks and counting. Tomorrow will mark one month on ETL and I've lost 17 lbs. I have never lost that amount of weight in a four week period! The first week was tough, but after your body and mind adjusts during the detox stage, the results you see on the scale and within will be worth it. Not long after you start, you will find cravings for sweets and salty foods will start to decrease and easier to manage. I still have temptation and moments when I make poor food choices, but 90% of the time I am eating nutritious meals that leave me satiated until the next meal. (What diet does that?)

    I also suggest typing vegan and vegetarian recipes in Google, you will find pages of blogs and websites full of recipes to make eating on this plan easier.

    I hope my suggestions are helpful. I am still learning and a baby on the ETL plan but this is the first time I feel like I can be successful on a diet. In fact, I don’t view it as a diet - it’s a new way of eating. I guess what I am saying is if nothing you have tried in the past brought you lasting success, why not give ETL a real try? You have nothing to lose but the weight. Best wishes on your journey. - Bre

    "Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow." (Douglas Pagels)

    Enjoy your holiday weekend with your loved ones. It's like one of the last outdoor celebrations before the chilly weather moves in. Get out enjoy some fun in the sun and maybe a great BBQ!

    Have a great holiday!

    It's challenge time again diva! August is coming to an end and that means a brand new team challenge for September. School is starting back up again and many of us are also getting ready to commit to ourselves full time again. These past few weeks we've had many new divas join, so we're all on the same page with starting fresh in September. The team challenge this month is called, "Diva University", it has several subjects (sections) to do, to be successful on your journey. It's time to become that DIVA we've always wanted to be. So check out the challenge and join in.

    It's time to become Divalicious!

    Buon Giorno Diva!!!

    The weekend is just about here. How are you going to spend it? Falling off the wagon or staying on and holding tight? I found a great quote that rings true to all those small things we do. Think about that when making food choices this weekend. Have a good one!

    "From small beginnings come great things." (Proverb)

    Ain't that the truth? Too many times we're all looking at the big picture on not focusing on the little things that make the big picture possible. Take time to look at the little things each day because those little things when put together will bring the success in the end. So when you tell yourself that one piece won't hurt or that you'll eat better tomorrow, stop yourself and make the healthier and the right choice. We have to start somewhere, why not start right now? Let's conquer the dreaded weekend and make it happen this time. We can all do it! Ciao!
