I have made it to the last weekend of my 28 day cycle for the Fast Metabolism Diet. Twenty five days down and 12 lbs lost. I wonder if I will lose another pound over the weekend? I'm not going to lie. I am thrilled to death with losing 12 lbs in less than a month. More importantly, though, I feel so dang good. I sleep better which means I have more energy during the day. I am able to put my shoes on without huffing and puffing. My clothes fit like they are supposed to and not like I am trying to stuff a sausage. I have NO heartburn and have not had heartburn since I started this diet.
The best thing is that I got all of these benefits without, not even once, being hungry. Now I have had some cravings but that is not the same as being hungry. I haven't had to kill myself with cardio each and every day, in fact, the eating plan only wants you to do cardio once a week or twice at the most, on a Monday or Tuesday when you are carb loading. Should you want to work out on a Wednesday or Thursday, it recommends weight work. And what does it recommend for the weekend?....fun and relaxation; yoga, a massage, a leisurely stroll or bike ride, stretching, relaxed swimming, playing with the kids, golfing, a walk in the woods....whatever it is that brings you peace and happiness.
The weekends also brings you easy and delicious meals containing healthy fats, protein and vegetables. Like this Asian Chicken Salad that I am sharing over at my other blog, A Day in the Life on the Farm.
Have a Fantastic Weekend everyone. I am having a Wine Tasting Pajama Party tonight with 3 of my friends. Tomorrow we have a graduation party to attend and will start packing for our trip. Sunday we will finish up packing and then our adults ( we used to have children but now we only have adults) are coming for dinner since we won't be around to bug them for a couple of weeks. Instead, we are going to bug their brother. You can move, son, but you can never get away LOL.
