Phase 1 of the Fat Smash Diet

You may have been told, because of the off-limits foods, that "phase 1" of this diet (which is called the detox phase) is hard to stick to for 9 days. But you would be looking at this phase all wrong.

When you focus on all of the allowed foods, you will have a plethora of choices. Use this time to expand your selection of foods, not restrict it.

Think of it as added food choices

Opening up your allowable food options is a much more positive message to send your brain, it will make this phase seem almost simple. At theend of this article there is list of 100 foods that you may have up to 50 or more that you've never tried.

Use this time to have fun and test foods with new spices and seasonings. McCormick has some great options to just shake on your veggies, that can make a world of difference to your taste buds.

Shopping on the Fat smash Diet Phase 1

Add food choices, with the Fat Smash Diet!

You should try as many of the below list of 100 foods as you can find at your local store. As long as you set your focus on trying new and healthy foods, you will not be hungry or feel like you are missing something. This will accomplish the goal of this phase and re-set your taste buds to a more healthy pallet.

Next time you sit down for dinner mix some beans with some curry power or throw several different vegetables in boiling water and add some spices. You will be amazed at the favors you can create without adding fatty items to your dishes.

Also, many fruits will satisfy your sweet tooth much more than a snickers bar will ever accomplish. Just cut up a melon of any sort and see. After the 9 days you will not be able to go without fresh fruit and several types of veggies in your daily menu.

Day 1 - My favorate thing about this diet is no counting or weighing food!! I had lots of water, 2 apples, a banana, oatmeal, yogurt, slpit pea soup ( w/o ham), celery, carrots, broccoli, grapes, and was never starving. It was freeing, to eat whenever I was the least bit hungry. I didn't have to, but out of curiousity I counted calories, I consumed ~1000 calories. I realized most of the things we eat, we do out of wants not true hunger. If you just listen to your true hunger and eat fresh/raw foods it's not possible to over consume.

Day 2 - I felt very full all day, but never bloated. Best of all, no guilt at night that I over indulged. Eating lentils, a fresh spinach salad with pomegranate and red onion. Also, a large sweet potatoe, orange, grapes, and some of the same items from yesterday's list, I could not beleive it when I added up the calories and it still was less than 1100.

Day 3 - I couldn't even hit 1000 calories today, because I was so full. I ate much of the same but added, asparagus, squash, red bell peppers, cauliflower, brown rice, and snap peas.

Day 4 - Still ~1000 calories eating several of the same as days before, added smashed pinto beans, tomatoes, tofu, and a pear. I usually has a real sweet tooth but, not eating junk food has not been a problem.

Best of all I've lost 3 pounds. That's 2% of my body weight in 4 days!!

Day 5 - Full again and found it easy to not grab one of the cookies that my kids were eating. For dinner I had a 15 bean soup (without the ham), so the new items today were allot of bean types, northern, lima, black-eyed, garbanzo, kidney, cranberry bean, white, pink, small red, yellow slip, navy, white kidney, and black bean.

Day 6 - Lost another pound today, and added new foods such as cantaloupe, honeydew, peas and pineapple. I haven't gotten board with what I'm eating because there's new food choices every day.

Day 7 - I went to a family gathering today, and was a little worried, but with a veggie and fruit tray available it was easy to not go off course. New foods today were roman lettuce, cherries, cucumbers, a peach, and milk.

Day 8 - New foods were Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and watermelon. Not a lot as the frig. was full of leftovers.

Day 9 - New foods were chickpeas, corn, lemon, and strawberries.

In total I made through to number 53 on the list below and my total weight lost was 5 pounds. That's >3% of my total, so I feel great about the last nine days of my life.
