Default Back on the Dr. Phil Rapid Start Plan

I started this plan again today. I did so well with it the last time even though I didn't follow it 100%. I'm planning on following it to the letter this time and I'm certain I will see amazing results. The thing I like best about it is that I don't have to count anything, just follow the outline of what I am supposed to be eating and have the proper portions sizes. I'm going to post regular updates, hopefully this will keep me honest!

Jen!!! I'm so proud of you!! From the sounds of it, it seems like this plan will provide a good foundation for you! I can't wait to hear how things are going for you, and I can't wait to applaud your success as you move forward through the program. You're going to do great......just make sure that you stay on top of your portions (how are you tracking those -- measuring or what?) and that you keep turning to us for support.......and tough love, if necessary!

And this is CRITICAL: YOU MUST EAT YOUR VEGETABLES!!!!!!!! Serious as a heart attack, Jen -- I'd be happy to send you some lovely soybeans as soon as I get the green light from you.

I'm absolutely positive that you're going to do great, Jen....just keep your head in the game and take it one pound at a time.

Sarah - Dr. Phil gives portion sizes in his Food Guide ie a serving of meat or fish would be about the size of a deck of cards. Keep those soybeans at home!! I ate lots of veggies today thanks!

I had a very good first day, may the rest be the same! I probably had too much roast beef at supper but I BBQ'd it and it was amazing. It was a lean roast and I cut off all the visible fat and I just eat it plain with a bit of salt and pepper. Also I had seasoned it with sage and onion salt before bbqing it. Still better to go a bit overboard with some roast beef than with ice cream!

A good start to the day. I ate a bowl of all-bran cereal with milk and a banana. Then I went and brushed my teeth and used Listerine and I am not tempted to eat anything after that! Practically anything you try to eat after using Listerine tastes nasty!! I'm going to do some bike riding and a few chores this morning. Have a great day everyone.

Another great day and I even got in 30 minutes of bike riding! I feel a lot better already, it is so good to not be eating a lot of refined garbage. 2 days down and 12 to go on this part of the plan. It sounds like a lot but really I am taking it one day at a time.

Way to go Jen! I've also been wondering about Dr. Phil's plan... Could you please explain the rapid start plan a little?

I had a not great day yesterday. All was well until after supper and I had about 8 cookies. It was an emotional thing. My toddler was behaving very badly and I was feeling terrible and gave into temptation. I was so upset by eating badly and by how I was feeling emotionally about my son's behaviour that my stomach was so upset that I'm surprised I wasn't sick to my stomach.

Anyway that was yesterday, this is today and I'm back on track.

For those of you who were inquiring about the rapid start plan I typed in a ton of info way back on April 21 under the title "Anyone interested in doing the Rapid Start Plan". I'm not very good at bringing up links so if someone would be so kind as to insert that in a post on this thread than that would be great.

Thumbs up

Hey there, Jen. Sorry to hear about your slip-up -- and very happy to hear that you're back in the saddle today. It's all a process, right? The key is to not let it get you off track or feeling so horribly that you beat yourself up... It's a new day, and you're in the driver's seat. NOT your toddler!

Here's the link to Jen's original thread.
