Yes, you can eat what you want, all you want and still lose weight!

Always consult your doctor before starting any weight loss program.

In my last weight loss hub it was brought to my attention that some people have a busy schedule and are unable to eat a big lunch. Not to worry! The following diet allows you to eat a large meal, with whatever foods you want, at the end of the day, when you can relax and enjoy every morsel!

1) Once a day, for an hour, eat whatever you want, as much as you want! This is called your reward meal.

2) Try to eat your reward meal about the same time everyday.

3) All other meals and snacks must be no carb or very low carb, meaning there are 0-3 carbohydrates in the foods you are eating. However, you can eat as much of these foods as you want. See list of these foods below.

4) Drink eight 8 oz glasses of water a day.

5) Try to eliminate all soda from your diet, especially diet soda!( This step is optional, but it is a healthy choice you should consider. Especially soda of any kind should not be given to children, but that is another hub which I will be writing in the near future.)

6) No artificial sweeteners except Truvia

7) Eat at least 2 cups of no carb veggies through out the day.

That's all there is to it!

Veggies Permitted- (Choose two cups from below, and eat them raw or cooked.)

Any lettuce, including iceberg, romaine, Bibb, escarole, mache, radicchio, arugula, and endive.

Leafy herbs such as dill, thyme, basil, oregano, and cilantro

Bok choy, chives, cucumber, fennel (anise), parsley, celery, peppers (hot or sweet), radishes, daikon, sprouts, mushrooms, olives.

Asparagus, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, kale, kohlrabi, tomatoes, onions, summer squashes (yellow, pattypan, and zucchini), okra, turnips, avocado, brussel sprouts, leafy greens broccoli, celeriac, and artichokes.

In fact, just about any vegetable you might wish to eat is permitted, with the exception of corn, potatoes, green (English) peas, and other sweet or starchy vegetables.

Meats and cheeses permitted-eat as many as you like!

You may eat any meat or cheese, sour cream, cream, and eggs. All these foods have zero carbs! For a more complete list, google "no carb, low carb foods".

PLAN your no carb snacks and meals, that is the key to success with this plan. Frankly, if you can't stick to this weight loss plan, there may not be much hope for you! I myself have used this plan when I needed to lose 10 pounds before going to a wedding. I lost 12 pounds! The only drawback with this diet is that you may lose weight too quickly. A weight loss of more than 2 pounds a week may not be healthy for some people. Please talk to your doctor before starting any weight loss program.

Sample menu for a day

Breakfast- 2 boiled eggs, 2 slices bacon, coffee with sugar and Truvia sweetener

Lunch- Grilled chicken breast with a salad made from any combination of the salad greens and veggies above. Top with your own homemade salad dressing! In small bowl combine the following...1/2 cup real mayo, 1T ketchup, 1t grated horseradish, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 t celery seeds, and 1/2 packet of Truvia sweetener.

Dinner- This is your reward meal, eat whatever you want, as much as you want for an hour! Make sure to get full! Make sure to eat whatever you are hungry for so you don't crave it latter.

Snacks- You may snack on any no carb, low carb veggie of your choice. You may also snack on string cheese.

Other recipes to try...

Mocked Mashed Potatoes- Clean and cup up a head of cauliflower, boil until tender in salted water. Drain water off water. In large bowl combine cauliflower, 3T sour cream, 3T butter, and salt to taste. Mash the same as you would for mashed potatoes, ENJOY! I love this dish, you have to try it!

Beef Roll Ups-6 large leaves of lettuce, 3 slices Embers beef ( bought at the deli), cream cheese, dill pickle spears. Clean lettuce leaves, cut beef slices in half, place 2T cream cheese down the middle of the beef, place the beef slice on the lettuce leaf, place pickle at one end, and roll up the entire thing, starting at the end with the pickle. Now slice the "loaf" into one inch pieces. This makes a great snack and there are 0 carbs in it! I love this recipe!

      In retrospect, this diet plan sounds very much like the Adkin's diet and a little like "Protein Power" (neither one works well). This diet is not sustainable. Since your body is comprised of 70% water weight, you may think you are losing fat, when in fact, you are just losing water weight probably due to a reduction in phosphorus and or potassium. And, in most cases, it isn't a healthy thing to reduce the main element of your physiology.

      Within other diet plans people end up losing weight but they are losing lean body mass including muscle and bone mass. Be careful out there! Just because one loses weight does not mean one is losing weight from fat reduction...and isn't that the primary goal?

      First off, I just want to say that if that is really Magnoliazz's real picture, I think I may be in love.

      Secondly, weight loss is not hard to figure out. It is just a matter of basic math. If you take in more calories than you burn off, the rest go into fat storage...and that's the bottom line. It's just a simple principle of accounting. There is no magic here besides me being enchanted by Magnoliazz's beautiful face and kindhearted disposition. But, other than that, the only way this diet works out is that it drains you of water weight. It might seem like it works in the short term, but it cannot work in the long run. Best wishes to all!

      Mashed turnips actually taste as good as mashed cauliflower and are just as good to sub for potatoes. Make them the same way as the cauliflower.

      Can you post a photo of those Beef roll ups?

      Don't forget pork skins and beef jerky for snacks - 0 carbs. (Get the jerky with no sugar or little sugar)

      The skins are great for quacamole dipping!

      1 avocado + 1/2 c. pico de gallo (I get it pre-made) makes good chunky guac!

      HI AustinStar...Thank you for stopping by. You can have fruit and cereal during your reward meal. You can have anything you want with the reward meal, and I know people who ate awful reward meals( pizza and cheeseburgers) and they still lost weight. BUT, I would try to eat a balanced reward meal. Lean meat, veggies, whole wheat bread, and of course diabetics will have to watch it, even at your reward meal. I'm sorry about that.

      People are unique and each person has to find what works for them, especially when it comes to weight loss.

      I miss fruit and cereal and bread ( my biggest vice), thats why I follow the other weight loss plan I wrote about.

      BUT, I lost weight with this program too, however it made me want to eat carbs more! Whatever food you restrict yourself, thats what you want most. And, it was like I could not get enough. Things I never even liked before, like Twinkies...suddenly I wanted to eat a whole box! LOL...I think thats what happens when you are not eating a balanced diet.

      After all this time, I would think they would come up with a diet pill that was safe and really worked. I thought leptin was the answer to my prayers, but now I never hear anything about it.

      I guess we will just have to hang in there and try our best. And, I wish they would ban all those late night food commercials. They make me crazy! LOL!
