CARB-FRIENDLY

YOU Best Diets - - Eat More Weigh Less Diet -

DID YOU ENJOY THIS DIET?

Yes, I did not ever feel like I was be­ing de­prived of food. The diet also wasn’t more ex­pen­sive than my reg­u­lar gro­ceries would be. I did not feel tired or fa­tigued on it at all, which hap­pens to me quite eas­ily if I don’t eat enough, and I had enough en­ergy to ex­er­cise.

WHAT WERE THE DRAW­BACKS?

It’s time-con­sum­ing to pre­pare the set meals. It was also some­times a bit frus­trat­ing when you are in the mood for one type of food but you need to eat an­other. The diet also had larger por­tions with longer time gaps in be­tween meals. I am used to smaller por­tions and eat­ing more fre­quently.

WAS THERE ENOUGH VA­RI­ETY?

Yes and I am a meat-lover and many of the meals in­cluded meat which I liked.

WAS IT EASY TO STICKTO?

The food was fill­ing and all the in­gre­di­ents could be found by vis­it­ing just two gro­cery stores.

WOULD YOU REC­OM­MEND IT?

If you enjoy car­bo­hy­drates the diet is for you, as it has quite a few recipes made with healthy, low-gi and slow-en­ergy release carbs. I ate far more car­bo­hy­drates than I would on my usual diet and still lost weight!

WHAT’S YOUR AD­VICE?

Don’t feel obliged to eat ev­ery­thing. Find out what works for you and rely on that – but don’t eat more than the diet al­lows or skip meals/por­tions and then binge later. Keep your eye on the prize – it’s usu­ally the best mo­ti­va­tor to imag­ine your­self post­diet!

‘I’m proud of my­self for stick­ing to the diet and feel light and trim!’
