What eating plan do you follow?

Hi, I'm new here, and have 50+ pounds to drop. I am following the peertrainer cheat 10 plan of eating. Do you follow the Cheat 10, or are you following something else. Let me know how it's going, too.

I think what allows your teammate to be successful on ETL is that there aren't daily and weekly allowances of crap, no matter how small. Does this mean you have to banish crap FOREVER?! No, but I think you would be well served by banishing it until you no long crave the stuff. By then, when you go back to it you may find you don't even like it. And, really, if you never ate fast food again you'd be doing yourself a HUGE favor!

I do PTs cleanse (which includes meat) and the Cheat System and can do it successfully for weeks at a time. Striving for flawless eating all the time only sets me up for total failure and total rebellion, but I can keep it clean 95% of the time no problem and to me that is a success. But what is possible? 365 is possible if that's what you want!

If I were you personal trainer I'd ask why you don't have input to your meals or why can't you make your own meals?!

Great comments everyone. I'm the original poster, and was curious as to what everyone else was doing (Weight Watchers, Peer trainer Cheat 10, a crazy fad diet out there). I always try to keep it healthy, organic, and good for you, butI need something sweet, salty, ot gooey just to keep me going. I'm a firm believer that one cannot lose weight if he/she is unhappy with what he/she has to eat, and that whatever we choose, it has to be something that we can follow for a lifetime, so you need something with wiggle room to account for life's celebrations.

I personally need something with a little give room, so that I don't put myself into a downward spiral if I've eaten a low fat, high fiber chocolate muffin/cupcake, or a few cookies. There's nothing worse that feeling defeated, when you're trying to lose.

Ha - it probably is that pop up! I see it on the side of my screen. PT emails you the details of the plan.

it was a pop up when I registered. The peer trainer cheat 10 is working for me because it's so simple to follow. The left column lists everuthing that you can eat. In addition to what you can/should eat, you get to add ten 100 calorie cheats (you choose your own cheats) daily. The plan was emailed to me, I printed it. No book to buy. It's free, and worth a look. I like the plan, and it's working for me.

Cheat system

The link for the cheat system it is at the bottom of this thread.

I think it isbrilliant. It is a way to have a nutriarian diet but not as rigid.
you do not have to use your cheats but it makes real-world wants or social situations more realistic.

These days I am following a raw veggies diet plan along with water foods diet plan because I want to lose some of my body weight.
I take green vegetables salad, fresh fruits, green tea, citrus fruits juices, and vegetables soups to burn extra body fat and get a shaped body.

Hi, this is all very interesting. I am following the cheat system diet. I love it because it is very healthy eating but allows you to live in the real world. That was the missing link for me. I love fruits and veggies but I like to go out to eat and I like sweets now and then. It has taken the guilt away which has always lead to my just quitting in disgust at my lack of willpower and character. Now I feel positive every day at my progress, my continued motivation, and my ability to forgive myself for having a cookie. One of the biggest secrets for me on this is eating tons of green leafy vegetables and veggies. No kidding, these keep me satisfied to the point of not desiring sweets. And I can't even express how much of it I was consuming before. That is huge for me. And when I do want some sort of sweet I have it, count it and move on. I do have a protein shake every morning too. I also agree that protein at every meal is important. Half you weight In ounces of water too. I am walking 4 miles most days now and burst training is
my next goal. It sounds like exercise you already have handled. I am also lucky that my family is on board with me and eats healthy too. Good luck to you!
