I agree, it took me nearly two months to lose 8 pounds -- but more recently, I am making more progress a bit faster (and eating well!)

It took about 6 weeks for my body to really start to hum - the weight really started to fall fast! Hang in there, it takes time for the metabolism to rewire.

I agree that Clean Eating magazine has been an extremely helpful source. They have a 2 week menu plan in each issue. Although the calorie count of the suggested meals are somewhat higher than what my intake should be, I find it's a great resource for helping me plan out my own menus. What I find very helpful is that they will call out brand names of foods (like breads, pastas and cheese) that are considered "clean."

I also bought Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet Cookbook and have found that to be a great resource as well.

As far as breakfasts, I have several favorites:
Egg white omelettes with tomatoes, onion and basil and a piece of toasted Ezekiel bread.
Toasted Ezekiel bread with almond butter or natural peanut butter (I buy Naturally More) and a piece of fruit.
Kashi GoLean cereal with skim milk and a diced apple.
Kashi GoLean oatmeal and a diced apple.
Cottage Cheese (I eat fat-free) with blueberries, wheat germ and cinnamon.

Laurie,

Subscribing to Clean eating Magazine has really helped me decide what to eat. I make at least five recipes from each issue. I also think Tosca Reno's book, The Eat Clean Diet Cookbook will be helpful. I use them both to plan my weekly menu. Good Luck. :-)

When I started "clean eating" I also started exercising. I was very strict with what I ate. fruits and veggies (except tropical and root) and protein I ate as much as I wanted. Carbs, even clean eating carbs were limited. The exercising was all cardio. The elliptical to be exact. I started with 20 minutes a day. after a month upped it to 30 minutes and every 2 weeks added 10 minutes until I was at an hour. and just did that everyday. I lost 2 lbs the first week and 2-4 lbs each week after until I was down almost 60lbs.
It's all about the eating and the cardio. They are a team. I still prefer cardio to weight training. But I'm living proof it works. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I have been clean eating for about six months now. I recently fell off the wagon for a couple weeks. My first week back on I lost six pounds. I will say that when I was doing it regularly, the clean eating itself never made me lose weight. I still really need to track my calories. But I definitely have a ton more energy and am much more positive.

I lost weight on the scale in the third week. I think it takes your body awhile to flush out and detox. make sure you are getting the right balances of protien and carbs....use the tracker it helps!!! :)

I have been eating clean for a week and I already feel much better! But the scale will not budge. Will I ever see tangible changes? What was your experience with this?
