Diet Success

I’ve reached my target weight of 175! I no longer fret about the diet; I automatically avoid bad carbs and go for the healthiest choices when I eat out. I’ve discovered that I can live without bread or potatoes, although I do miss rice & pasta. Now that I’m on the maintenance phase, I can eat “bad” foods occasionally as long as I don’t overdo it.

When I went to a cookout last weekend, I didn’t think about the diet. I even had a thin piece of cake (not a big piece like I used to have), and after working out and being careful the next day my diet was back on track.

  1. Congrats! I just started induction 2 days ago. I haven't gotten bored of eating the same foods, yet! Any advice to avoid that?

  2. The strict phase only lasts two weeks, so by the time you might start getting bored, you're getting close to the second phase. I found the first 3 days difficult, but as soon as I got into the habit of eating the right things it became easier. During that time I ate lunch out almost every day. Find someplace that has a lot of salads or a low-carb menu.
