Week 1 SHRED Diet Review

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Today is Day 7 of the SHRED diet. I did it! I followed the diet 99% of the time with the exception of Day 1. I mean really who eats beans and veggies for dinner, but that day got me thinking. Did I mention that this was also New Years Eve?? emoticon

But I managed to pull together an under 400 calorie dinner that everyone loved! emoticon

Review of Week 1

I am not sure I would have been able to stick to the plan as a newbie to the lifestyle. It does not offer any suggestions on how to prepare meals. The meal of beans and veggies totally had me clueless, but after thinking about it I came up with a idea. Chickpea salad- chickpeas,cucumbers, tomatoes and red onions emoticon Some recipes had feta cheese but I skipped that and added a little more lemon juice. In other words you have to be inventive as not to get into a rut.

This week offers alot of food. 4 Meals and 3 Snacks on most days- some days you get a bonus 4th snack. Let me tell you not on one day did I eat all the food listed. I was not hungry at all and I did not feel deprived on the plan emoticon .

Tomorrow is my weigh in day emoticon and the start of Week 2- Challenge. After reading the meals I know why it is called this. There are more "liquid meals"- soups,smoothies or protein shakes on some days but since I was not eating all the food in Week 1 I don't think it will be too much of a problem in Wk2. I invested in some Special K protein drinks that are pretty good when icy cold. So I am ready for the Challenge week emoticon

    I've been reading bit and pieces about this program and it sounds like something I want to try. Looked for a Spark Team for it and came up with nothing but found your blog and another, both of you sound happy and enthusiastic, so today I headed to Target to see if they had the book in stock. Nada... just an empty space where it had been...darn....came home and downloaded it to the K-Fire. I just didn't want to go on search mission today. I prefer these types of books to be in form. But really, really want to check it out. I'll be reading for the next couple of days and will most likely spend Sunday looking for a hard copy. I am looking for something that will give me a jump start this year and hope this is it!

    Good luck on your Journey and thanks for posting your review!
