Adjustments for Women? No success so far...

I am having super similar problems! I don't know what is wrong, but maybe you are on to something with the "women" thing as my boyfriend already has a six pack and after 4 weeks, I remai...

I am having the exactly same problems! It's been ~4 weeks and I've lost only 6cm from all my measurements combined -- that's ~2cm only on my waist! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I follow the...

No changes... what do I do now?

It looks like there are 6 grams of sugar in a serving of string bean chicken. Is there a way that you could try a week where you eat something else? If you can up the morning meal to 30g protein...

Bummer...this diet for women?

Smiley, you sound just like me after one week - I expected faster results and was impatient and frustrated. My advise, relax, stay with it. You will start seeing results soon, trust me! I'm 8 m...

How do I get my focus back?

I started the diet 8/10/11 and lost over 20 lbs. and got down to even lower than my goal weight. I went on vacation 2 weeks ago and, although I did not go crazy, I got off the diet. Now I have i...

adacandoit replied to Paula30's question:

Peas and green beans only for legumes?

Peas are a no-no so I would avoid them. You may want to psyche yourself up to like beans and lentils better because for various reasons they are important on this diet. Maybe you should try expe...

Mix legumes in 1 meal?

I like to go to Mexican restaurants because I can stay on the diet - I order my meals w/o rice and double beans; no tortilla, but replace with guac. Of course my favorite meat is "carnitas&q...

Is it me, or my scales???

Don't freak out yet! I've noticed that every once in a while I'll jump 2 lbs. even when I've been pretty good. Like others said, it could be water retention, waste in your colon or a little grem...
