Well, I searched and searched and only found one entry on SparkPeople with a mention to the Belly Melt Diet. This doesn't give me a lot of hope for it's success. I'm on day #2 of it and I'm really struggling.
It's not that I'm looking for a quick fix and easy weight loss but I have been stuck for months now. I work out almost every day (3 days on, 1 day off, 3 days on). I don't eat carbohydrates in the evening. I limit my calories. And I can't lose a pound! I'm so frustrated so I decided to try a shock to my system and see if it works.
The only problem is that this is such a shock that I am really struggling. I'm hungry all of the time, I'm exhausted, and I have a horrible headache. Essentially the Belly Melt Diet calls for you to get your body on a cycle. You sleep at least seven hours a night, before eating in the morning you do at least 20 minutes of cardio (I have been doing 30 because I normally did an hour at night), you eat six times a day (about 200 calories per meal), and you do strength training in the evening.
It doesn't seem too stringent or unorthodox. I'm not sure why my body is hating it so much. Either way, I said I would try it for five days and see what happens. I'm determined to see it through. I will weight in on Friday and see if it shifted the scale at all. I will be very discouraged if it hasn't moved at all.
I'll keep you posted.
