As most of our regular readers already know, we welcomed our 5th child back in May. Since then, I have seriously been struggling with my weight. Within weeks of having her, I was already back to my pre-pregnancy weight but lack of sleep on top of a baby who was pretty colicky and it didn't take long for my weight to start creeping back up. A couple of weeks ago, I came to realize that I had 2 choices. Go shopping and buy bigger clothes or go on a diet. It worked out perfect that around that same time, I got a message in my inbox that a new diet book was being released in November, the Doctor on Demand Diet. Many of you might be familiar with the Doctor on Demand app and this is a companion to that. It provides a customized eating, exercise and behavior plan that was created to help readers be successful without eliminating the major food groups.
This diet begins with a 10-day CleanStart phase that is designed to help readers learn to control hunger while eating higher protein foods while reducing fat and carbs. Next is the 10-day- Customize your Carbs phase that personalizes your eating plan to match your metabolic profile. The final phase, the Cycle for Success phase creates a flexible plan for continued weight loss while preventing plateaus. Throughout the book you find practical advice, stories of actual patients as well as quizzes and questionnaires to help you customize your plan even more. Of course my favorite part is the meal plans and recipes in the back of the book.
So that's it. The book showed up on my doorstep this week and I knew it was just what I needed to help kickstart me in the right direction again. The book will be available in November but I hope you all will check back in with me as I go through the plan so I can share how well it is working with me and my friends!
