Week 6 – Pictures of Meals

Guess what?  Tony has lost 21.8 lbs!  His pants don’t fit.  How sad.  Me?  No change, still at 8.8 lbs.  I don’t feel bad about, though.  Tony is very strict and eats 95% according to plan.  This is because his sensitive tummy loves the new foods and when he strays he suffers with pain.  I don’t have that same intense incentive.  So I probably eat 75% according to plan.  I haven’t notice any significant changes, except my clothes fit a little better.

Here are a few of the meals we ate this week.  Keep your eye open for meal = veg + veg + protein formula that I think is the key to this plan’s success.

Lunch 1

The Plan – Lunch

Here’s a typical lunch.    It’s leftover roast vegetables (carrots, zucchini, squash, and sometimes broccoli, kale, beets), salad made of spinach and other greens with a little bit of grated cheese, and a good helping of hummus on a rye cracker.

See how beautiful it is?  Wouldn’t you love to eat this?  I did.

This lunch is soup and salad.  This is the book’s “Spicy Vegetable Soup” which has any vegetables you like plus chickpeas and a fully loaded salad with any combination of greens, avocado, goat cheese and pumpkin or sunflower seeds.

This is a very filling and satisfying meal.

Dinner

The Plan - DinnerFor dinner we have beet and carrot slaw with pumpkin seeds, sauteed zucchini and onions and a 4 oz (6 oz for Tony) chicken breast with garlic sauce.  Don’t be afraid to add more of either or both vegetables.

  1. Hi Cleo! I’m just starting to dabble into The Plan and I love your blog. Thanks for the laughs, the details on your experience and the beautiful pics of food.

    Happy Holidays!!

  2. I understand you did this a few years ago – but would be interested to know how you are doing now. Still following your plan? I am stalling out for the last two weeks despite carefully planning meals and documenting all of it to understand if weight gain happens, why… but not losing on friendly days. Did this happy to you? Do you get past it?

    1. Hi! This was so long ago, and no we aren’t doing it anymore. We stuck to the plan for the three-weeks, and then we went back to our old ways. I don’t eat McDonald’s ice cream anymore, though.

      Good luck with your journey, and keep at it!
