1. do people typically keep the MRC weight off? From reading your posts I see that it is a ketogenic diet. My experience has been that going off a ketogenitic diet causes a quick regain. :
2. can I exercise? I just started a body pump workout (light weights many reps) and I really like it.
3. can I use my advocate vitamins? I already have a 90 day supply and I don't want to invest in a bunch of supplements
Do you like the diet? How do you feel from doing this diet? Tired? Lot of energy??
What say you????
1.) t's a tough program and yes people have been able to keep it off if you stay on program, I myself went thru it once and regained about 19lbs, I'm back for my second time and after knowing from the first time I went thru it, it's been easier for me, and yes it does work and yes if you don't stick with it you gain quick
2.) while on the program you can't do much exercise until you get to a certain menu and then you can only do 4 hours a week because of the low calorie
3.) it depends if they are compatible with theirs, you do have to purchase the HNS protein drinks, these are a vital part of the program and helps you keep muscle
4.) Yes I like the diet, it helps me stay focused, I feel great, never tired, lots of energy, restricted yes but it's a life changing way to eat right and worth it
This is only my experience, if you read the forum you will see everyone is different. good luck on what ever you do. I can tell you that I've tried everything and this is the program that has worked for me that is the only reason I went back and this time I plan on staying with it because I know it works and when I went off plan I felt like crap! I take their EFA's and total woman which helps me sleep great! Their oils make my hair shine and my complection look great and my nails grow! I also take their MRC-6 which helps the inches fall off, after three weeks I lost 6lbs and 9inches!
