I lost a total of 41 pounds on BFC after about 8 to 9 weeks and I was very pleased with those results. However, I have now transitioned to the Full Plate Diet as a way of controlling my endometriosis.
I have been doing Full Plate now for almost 2 weeks and because it is EXTREMELY high fiber, it was the perfect match to control my endo flare ups.
My thoughts on BFC is that it is truly a very good diet. I learned a great deal and it has served me well. However, the last monthly cycle, I was in so much pain; I had to think about my diet (along with Dr. prescribed pain meds) as a way of only having more than 1 good week out of a month. The transition to a higher carb diet was no problem. My carbs are NOT breads, pastas and things like that. I now eat a TON of raw veggies and beans and my craving for sugar is still not there.
I still only eat low glycemic fruits, shun sugar 98% of the time, drink tons of water, use Truvia ect...But, the Full Plate Diet gives me the option of eating lots more plant based fiber.
I don't think I could have started the Full Plate diet if I had not already done the BFC. BFC trained my body to get rid of the "junk", the sugar and the highly processed junky carbs..So, in a way, BFC has been an almost 3 month "Induction Phase".
Good luck to all!!
