VRWH's own diet


 Summary:

It starts with JJ Virgin's Diet. Removing 7 highly intolerant foods from your diet for 3 weeks. (sugar & artifical sugar substitues, gluten, soy, eggs, corn, peanuts, dairy products). This detox gives your sytem a rest from any possible intolerant foods in your system.

You have a couple of shakes a day for the first week and then modify to one a day if you want for weeks two and three.

I then had to start counting the calories because you can eat tooooo much healthy food too... so I try and keep my count to below 1250 which seemed to be the magic number for me... but with adding lots of good oils like Udo's 3 Blend and fish oil it was hard to do that SO...

I then started eating my big meal before 3PM and not eating so much as a grape after 8PM and then weight is coming off again and I don't have to manage the calories quite as much it seems.

 How To Follow VRWH's own diet:

Eat your big meal(dinner) before 3pm. I struggled with many different scenarios and when the scale got stuck for over 3 weeks I tried the Dr Oz recommendation to eat most of your calories before 3pm.

I eat 1 hr after getting up with a Vega One "All in one nutional shake" with berries and greens, Udo's 3 Blend Oil, fish oil with Vit D(1000ui) and added fibre in it every morning.

I eat a snack before lunch (dinner) of fruit usually.

I eat a BIG lunch. 4-6 oz of protein, lots of green and coloured vegetables before 3pm (usually around 2-3). This is my only big meal of the day.

Snacks in late afternoon of nuts, fruit, vegs, hummus whatever.

VegaOne Shake (or a Vega Protein shake if I've worked out) at around 7:30ish. EAT NOTHING AFTER 8PM (not so much as a grape passes your lips. I drink lots of water in the evening especially if I get peckish.

About / History

I've tried over 19 diets and got into the JJ Virgin Diet in February '13. Saw her on PBS and it made sense removing 7 foods from my diet for 21 days to cleanse my body of intolerant foods than may be preventing me from losing weight (howver hard I tried). I did it and lost about 7 pounds. I followed the shake idea she promotes and found a shake that worked for the diet (because you can't get her shakes in Canada) Vega One 'all in one nutional shakes' work great. They have no gluten, eggs, dairy in them and use vegetable protein (Pea.

Then the scale stuck for over 3 weeks after only 9 pounds down... until I started eating my big meal before 3pm. Then it started to move downwards again.
