So the results are in! But before I get to them, I want to summarize the whole experience.
Overall, this is a really satisfying, easy diet. It is convenient and quick. It fills you up with a variety of foods, all with different nutritional pluses and there is plenty of sweet, meat, and crunchiness for everyone's needs!
It is only 3 days long, so the commitment isn't hard, even for the commitment-phobes out there. Plus, it has ICE CREAM!! How can you go wrong? Even the bad stuff isn't that bad, or only for a meal or two.
The next time or two I do it (because I will do it again), then I'll be tweaking it just a little. Chicken here instead of tuna, or replacing a meal with one from the day before. I will see how well it works and post my results as well.
After you finish the 3 day part, you have 4 other days until you can do it again. Which honestly makes a ton of sense. Even though you may not be feeling hungry, your body isn't meant to function on so few calories. I made sure to only do one of my two activities every day. I didn't want to pass out on a walk somewhere or in the pool! It is definitely recommended that you don't exercise too much, both from my own experience and just in general.
My plan is to continue eating healthy, maybe integrating similarly small meals on my off days, so I can have one or two larger meals with my boyfriend or friends or coworkers. My 4 days off are Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. Which is really awesome, but will also take a lot of self control. Summer is here and I can't over do it. I'm also going to try to do two activities a day. Swimming & walking, walking & stairs, swimming & gym, etc. I think it will be really good. And my boyfriend and family have been so supportive. It helps a lot and I think it helped me lose as much as I did!
So finally, I will reveal how much I lost...
SEVEN POUNDS! 7lbs! 7! That is quite a few, over 2 a day! :) It's awesome. On this blog, they have a poll at the bottom (which you can look at without voting) to see the results. At this time, ~35% of people lose 5-7 pounds, about ~13% didn't lose anything, and around 25ish% each for 1-5 and 8+ pounds lost.
Considering this is a diet with ice cream, I feel like it was really effective. I hope that if you do it, that you have an equally positive experience overall. It's still a diet, so it will suck in some ways, but I think learning to eat less, portion control and finding low calorie meal substitutes is really useful.
