Congrats! Yep, that cooler #1 will move you out of a funk of a plateau in a week or less and that's why I love it. I also eat simple. I find it a bit time consuming to prepare the simple meals and I can't imagine following recipes and the like...it will take me days to prepare for one day. I'm exaggerating, but for me, keeping it simple and tasty works.

Each day, typically would be 5-6 meals.
You can find tons of users' meal plans at www.eatcleandiet.com. (In the Kitchen Table section)

A typical day for me is:

M1 (breakfast): Oatmeal (not the pre-packaged stuff) w/ some natural almond or peanut butter, cinnamon, flax, wheat germ, and some fruit or raisins. Coffee w/ skim milk (I don't put sugar in it but if you do, try a natural sugar like Sucanat, honey, or agave nectar.)

M2: Fat-free cottage cheese with fresh fruit (today I have honeydew and blueberries)

M3: Tuna Salad with mixed greens, a little fresh goat cheese, tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar & evoo dressing.

M4: Rice crackers with hummus (homemade, I have a great recipe from one of the cookbooks) and I have carrots to dip as well.

M5: Brown rice with a beef & walnut stir-fry (this recipe is also from one of the cookbooks!)

M6: Not always, but if I'm still hungry, I'll have Green Tea and a clean treat (clean cookie if I have them made). I try not to eat late so I find a teas can usually quash my hunger!
Here's a link to one of my favorite Clean Eating cookies: http://www.cleaneatingmag.com/recipe...tecookies.html

Can this diet be modified for a vegan? I don't want to eat meat or dairy. Are there enough ways to eat without adding those ingredients?

It sounds really yummy! Find you ladies for posting a standard day I think i will do cooler 1 for 1 week just to jumpstart the weightloss and then move on to Cooler 2? Is this the way to go? I have about 80 lbs to lose.

I love it I find it perfect for me. You can prepare a lot of your veggtables at the same time if you have bowls make the salads ahead cut the vegtables at breakfat for whole day, I cook oatmeal [ long cooking kind]for the week and heat it daily I devey it up in little containers. Heat it daily its faster. And like I said I add an extra cup of water to ad all the stuff in the oatmeal.THAT way I just grab stuff.
I bought my Ground Flax seed at like walmart, my FIRST Bee pollen I bought from a health food store, and wheat germ, some groc carry or health food store I DO THINK ITS IMPORTANT!!!
TRY the BEE POLLEN if it works for you I found a REALLY good source for 5lbs
at an EXCELLENT price by mail.

I REPEAT IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT MIND SET YOU ARE NEVER HUNGRY!!!
I am a firm beliver anything works if you work it!

You can try cooler 1, but you may find it very restricting if you go it cold turkey! As long as you're fully prepared, you should be okay. Just don't do it on your TOM, it will make you VERY cranky! lol

I would suggest trying a week of cooler 2 than a week of cooler 1. It may be an easier transition, but if you're determined, than go for it girl!

hey devadiva, could you PM the info about where u got the bee pollen?

i am going to read the book over the week end and see if i am ready for cooler 1 cold turkey... It is a good idea mandymic to do one week of cooler 2 first, so that i can get used to eating better

No I don't think so but we could start one up. I plan on eating this way and it helps to keep on track.

Hey ladies, so i went to the health food store and I bought the supplements so I just tried one of the bee pollen and so far no reaction. Does that mean that tomorrow I can go ahead and put a TBS in my oatmeal?

I sure don't because I only do the purly strict Plain strict COOLER so I don't know on the hummas thing but it would seem what ever is the equal to a serving of beans if you are folling the VEGAN one. As far as the BEE pollen question I went with like a tbl m 1st day with the wheat germ 2 tbls and 2 tbls of ground flax seed. It can make you stool soft {which for me is a GOOD thing} So I incresed to 2 tbls the second day which is what I have evry day LIKE I said I do add another around ! cup of water when I add the stuff CAUSE it makes it REALLY thick ....but I love it 3 weeks in!
