Default Started Cooler 1 Plan today!

I really needed something to get me focused, on track and jump started. Hubby and I started Tosca Reno's Cooler 1 Plan today, which we plan to follow for 14 days. It's very strict, so after the 14 days are up (assuming we make it through it), we'll be a little more lenient. It's not for hardcore exercisers (not enough carbs, IMHO, for tons of exercise), but I am just getting back into the workout groove anyway. It's not like I have a bunch of a long runs in my near future. lol

I am worried that I won't be able to stay on this plan for the entire 14 days. Falling off the wagon is a common problem for me. BUT I am going to give this my all, because I really need to revamp my lifestyle. And, well, I am a person of extremes.

Here's the basics, in case anyone's interested:

Per day, eat...

- 1 apple or pear
- 5 servings lean protein: chicken, tuna, egg whites, turkey, bison, elk, non-oily fish
- 5 servings raw/steamed veggies: cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, asparagus, green beans, sprouts, celery
- 1 yam or sweet potato
- 1 serving whole grain: quinoa, brown rice, millet, oatmeal, cream of wheat

I am really going to miss cottage cheese, which is my main go-to protein snack. But I'll add that back in after the 14 days, as well as more types of fruit, more types of veggies, and a few more servings of grains to fuel my workouts.

This kind of eerily somewhat sounds like how I eat except, as you stated minus the cottage cheese. I do eat a bit more grains so I could see where a hardcore exerciser (like myself) might be zapped of energy. This sounds like something that's doable for two weeks. It's not two years, lol. Nice that your DH is along for the ride. Good luck and keep us posted.
40-ish and feeling fine.

I think Im going to join you as of Monday. Gonna finish out the rest of this week eating fairly healthy and working out ( but still enjoying my almonds, peanut butter, and greek yogurt as they are not allowed on cooler 1 :0) ) then hit the store this weekend. Hows it going so far? I am just in need of another jump-start I think.
