With today being the first day of spring I'm sure a lot of you are looking for a way to kick start your healthy living to get bikini ready. I'm all about eating healthy year round, but I understand a lot of you want a fast way to help you eat healthier for the summer time. I decided to try a jump start plan, I refuse to call it a diet, that I was seeing all over Pinterest. I'm all for trying new things and letting my viewer know how it goes, just think of me as your ginny pig! hehehe
What I did enjoy about this plan was I already had a lot of what I needed in the house already, so I didn't spend that much money at the grocery store. Honestly that's the only thing I did like about it though. You'll see what I mean after you look closely at the picture posted below...
Basically during the three days of this jump start to eating healthier you eat NOTHING. I'm used to eating 5 small meals a day every 2-3hours so this was very hard for me. I read a lot of reviews about women losing at least 10lbs doing this and feeling extremely energized, but I felt the opposite. I was extremely sluggish and couldn't finish my workouts, even though it does recommend to work out.
Another thing I didn't like about this plan is it's not very specific about what items to eat. Should it be all natural peanut butter or regular JIF? Should it be low fat 1% cottage cheese or 2%? The "diet" says it's all about the chemical break down of foods and that's why you're eating crazy combinations of food and can have ice cream, but I would think with those factors it would be more specific.
Needless to say I would not recommend trying this. I really struggled with this one. I truly believe you can eat healthy and feel satisfied and full. You should not have hunger pains and feel deprived when trying to change your lifestyle and become healthier.
If you are up for the challenge and think this will work for you let me know how it goes. I would love to hear your opinions and reviews on this! If you do feel hungry just promise you'll eat something. :)
