Spark Coach Plateau Busters, Spark Solution

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I finished the Plateau Busters series yesterday and I did post a new low weight, so I guess that's sure something. I like the separate check in for quality of food eaten versus tracking accurately. And I liked not worrying about forgetting the daily challenge. So I'll probably repeat this program.

Spark Solution and Spark Coach have quite a bit in common as far as I can tell from day 3. Spark Solution is more comprehensive and concentrated. Some of it will be familiar if you've been through all the Spark Coach series, but a lot of it is new. A lot of the Metabolic Makeover is contained in the discussion of each meal. So the shopping list makes a lot more sense now.

They are running you through a couple dozen healthy options (and permissable indulgences) to teach you how to think about food. It's a great way to do it. As they go, they compare similar "normal" foods to show where the protein, fiber, sodium, healthy fat etc. are different. So like I speculated, you can learn in two weeks what took me six. I tracked my "normal choices" for a few weeks, then started seeing patterns and making changes. I'm still learning. And I'm really wishing I had the stuff to make some of these things. Breakfast cookies?

    I've noticed some similarities between SparkCoach & SparkSolution, too. But that's good because I need to be reminded of things more than once sometimes. emoticon

    Thanks for the reminder that I can change my SparkCoach program to the Plateau Busters. I think that might be just what I need to get things moving again.

    Enjoy your blog! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences!

    I haven't kept up with the reading, either, but I'm doing the program with my own meal plan, not the book one. Unfortunately, I went seriously over yesterday :-(

    I hope to be able to grab a couple of extra hours the next few days to READ the Spark Solution.... I've skimmed it... but that's about it! Thanks for the information!
