OK. I'm in the groove now. I can even make the the Fade Away Shake without looking at the ingredients and measurements! (It's the little things.)
I am at a consistent weight loss of 6 lbs. My stats: Height - 5' 10" Weight - 174. To be honest I'm not doing the exercises. Which is so bizarre because I'm normally someone who gets in, at least, 25 minutes 4 to 5 days a week. I just haven't made the time. I'm sure my weight loss would be more if I exercised.
My husband's weight loss is kind of going up and down like a roller coaster and he doesn't know what's going on. He's been down 8 lbs. but the numbers have gone up, then down. He is so good about following the plan, eating the snacks and using the correct portions/measurements so he's frustrated, but he plugs along.
I've noticed that I've needed to add a fiber supplement powder to my smoothies. Even though The Digest Diet calls for fruits, veggies and a lot of dairy, things weren't, well, you get what I'm saying. So I've been adding a fiber powder and I feel much better.
And with regards to feeling better here's an interesting change, before I started this eating plan my heart would occasionally pound. I mean, it would beat so hard, even while I was just sitting, that sometimes you could see my shirt move! (At least I thought you could). When this would occur I would take a few deep breaths then it would subside. Since I've started The Digest Diet this hasn't happened to me, not once. Is it the increased dairy intake? The herbs (a.k.a. Fat Releasers) marjoram, tarragon, ginger? The spices of cayenne and cumin? I don't know but my body feels calmer.
I'm getting the information I wanted from this book, I'm learning light and lean recipes and using more tasty herbs and spices. My hunger pangs finally drifted away on the 8th day - thank goodness. And I've been sleeping more soundly. That's a huge benefit!
On we go.
