2013~Blog~15 ~ 1st week of 2nd 28 days DONE & lost more!

Monday, August 05, 2013

I started my 2nd 28 day cycle of the Fast Metabolism Diet on July 29th

It is getting easier to get it right. I finished my 1st 7 days yesterday and I was down 2 more pounds. On Mon. (Day 1) I was at 168.4 lbs and Sun. (Day 7) I was at 166.4 lbs.

There are 3 Phases I do in One Week.
Phase 1 is 2 days of - Unwinding Stress and Calming the Adrenals.
Phase 2 is 2 days of - Unlocking Stored Fat and Building Muscle.
Phase 3 is 3 days of - Unleashing the Burn - Hormones, Heart, and Heat.
My favorite is Phase 3.

I started Phase 1 this morning and this is what I have on Mon. and Tue.
Breakfast: Grain and Fruit
Snack: Fruit
Lunch: Grain, Protein, Fruit, and Veggie
Snack: Fruit
Dinner: Grain, Protein, and Veggie
Exercise: At least one day of vigorous cardio. Cardio is perfectly suited for high-carb Phase 1.
There is a specific list of food to choose from on each Phase.

On Phase 2, Wed. and Thur.
Breakfast: Protein and Veggie
Snack: Protein
Lunch: Protein and Veggie
Snack: Protein
Dinner: Protein and Veggie
Exercise: Strength Training at least one day.
There is a specific list of food to choose from on each Phase.

On Phase 3, Fri., Sat., and Sun.
Breakfast: Fruit, Fat/Protein, Grain, and Veggie
Snack: Veggie Fat/Protein
Lunch: Fat/Protein, Fruit, and Veggie
Snack: Veggie Fat/Protein
Dinner: Veggie Fat/Protein Optional Grain
Exercise: At least one day of stress-reducing activity like yoga, or deep breathing, or enjoy a massage. A massage increases blood flow to fatty areas of your body, reduces cortical, and does the work you want for your body during Phase 3.

I love this Fast Metabolism Diet. I have lost a total of 9 lbs in 35 days. 7 lbs in the first 28 days and 2 this last week and this morning I was down another 0.60 of a pound. I have never been able to do that on any other diet!
