Well it's been 3 months but I'm back. I got a bit side tracked but I think I'm on a winner this time.
I have just started on the Lite and Easy program.
I have only been on the program for 10 days and I am loving it.
I am on the 1200 calorie plan which is not recommended for guys as it is not a lot of calories - however I am finding it is plenty of food. I did have to eat an extra piece of fruit for the first 3 or 4 days in the evenings after dinner as I was getting very hungry but I'm over that now.
I have followed the plan to the letter and am pleased to say that in only 10 days I can already feel the changes in my body.
I have had to pull the belt in a notch which is encouraging.
I'm a single guy so the fact that I get all my meals delivered to my door and I never have to cook is fantastic too.
It's also great to be able to get up in the morning and grab the appropriate breakfast package and lunch package and I'm set for the day.
The concept is extremely simple. The food is just your everyday normal food. There's chicken, pasta, rice, vegetables, potato etc. No fancy fad diets or low carb, high protein etc.
It is portion control that makes the difference. We are fat because we eat too much. It is that simple!! (excluding medical conditions of course).
When I make my own meals I probably eat servings that are 3 times the size I actually need.
While the Lite and Easy portions are much smaller than I would normally eat they are obviously big enough as I am not overly hungry.
As each meal time approaches I am starting to get hungry but it is far from starving.
It's actually a pleasant sensation to have an empty stomach. I used to eat too much food too often before and hunger is almost a new sensation to me.
It has been a real eye opener as I now realise how much I was over eating and how much food I really need to consume.
If anyone has any questions on the program feel free to ask. I will answer the best I can based on my experiences so far.
I know I can stick with this plan and I'll keep you all informed on my progress.
I'm planning my first weigh in this Monday and will look at weighing in probably weekly after that.
