I know I have talked a good bit about this diet in various threads, but I am doing an 'overview' of the cycle 1 chapter for Jenn because she wants to try it out... and I would really love for other people to do it and share their experience!

I really recommend buying the book though. Its full of good information and tells you WHY you should eat XYZ and what new studies say and blah blah. I find myself opening it and re-reading pretty regularly.

Cycle 1 is referred to as the 'accelerate' cycle b/c it promotes rapid weight loss. You should expect to lose 10-12 pounds during the first cycle, which is 17 days.

During this cycle you'll be reducing carbs slightly to encourage your body to tap into its storage fat. You'll also increase your protien intake which sends your body into fat burning mode. You'll correct improper digestion (which holds you back from fat burning) Because you'll lose weight quickly, it will motivate you to continue on. Supposedly, by getting sugar, sweets, refined carbs etc out of your diet, you won't crave them anymore. (I have found this to be true for things like potatoes and bread and other starches -- but not sugar -- yet!) During cycle 1 you will also clear your body of posssible toxins that mess with your thyroid (which helps regulate your metabolism and other stuff)


You don't want to eat carbs later in the day b/c you won't burn them... so have your fruit servings prior to 2pm.

Drink green tea -- it helps burn fat.

Drink 64 ounces of water a day

exercise for 17 minutes a day.


Eat all the lean protien you want, including:

Salmon, Sole, Flounder, Catfish, Tilapia, canned light tuna in water
Chicken breasts, turkey breasts, lean ground turkey, eggs

Eat all the cleansing veggies you want:

artichoke, asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, brussel sprourts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, garlic, green beans, green leefy vegetables, kale, leeks, lettuce, mushrooms, okra, onions, parsley, scallions, spinach, tomatoes, watercress

2 servings of low sugar fruit daily:

apples, berries (all types,) grapefruit, oranges, peaches, pears, plums, prickly pear cactus, prunes, red grapes

Probiotic foods - 2 servings daily:

yogurt - any type including greek style, sugar free fruit flavored, plain, & low-fat (6oz is a serving)
kefir
low fat acidophilus milk
yakult
breakstone liveactive cottage cheese (1/2 cup = serving)
reduced salt miso dissolved in low fat, low sodium broth
tempeh
saurerkraut (1/2 cup = serving)
kimchi


friendly fats - 1 to 2 tablespoons daily of olive oil or flaxseed oil

condiments in moderation are OK -- there's a long list but its basically anything fat free

that's pretty much all the info.

here's what my food log usually looks like:

eggs & berries for breakfast
a chicken salad for lunch or a chicken/lettuce wrap & fruit or yogurt for lunch
sometimes a cottage cheese snack
chicken and veggies for dinner
yogurt for a sweet post-dinner snack if I didn't have it already & a probiotic pill.

I haven't found turkey I like and we don't eat seafood so its pretty much chicken ALL THE TIME. I'm pretty tired of eating it, but soon I'll be in cycle 2 and can have some freaking BEEF. haha

It also says to avoid diet drinks or sweet n low, because the fake sugar is a toxin... and to use steevia/truvia instead.

I like it too. Questions

For the green tea is this tea you make at home or does Lipton Green Tea count too?

Also, should portion sizes be taken into consideration for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

I've lost ten pounds... and that is total after gaining/losing some over a month period. I've been doing it a month but took off a week during our trip and also a couple days for our anniversary and for Easter... so in like 3 weeks total, I guess, lol.

hot green tea that you've made is fine but I do the arizona diet green tea.

you eat the freebie lean protiens and cleansing veggies until you feel satisfied. you aren't limited since they're 'freebies' but obviously don't force-feed them, haha.
