7 days ago I started the Harley Pasternick Body Reset diet. A friend of mine was successful in losing 10lbs from this diet, and helped keep her on the right track and keep the weight off for over a month once she had completed it.
I'm not overweight by any means, but I'm extremely unhappy with how I look and feel in a bikini and even in my clothes right now. I'm 5'7 and was weighing in at 146-148lbs on July 7th. I hold ALL of my weight in my face and stomach, no where else. So having all of the fat in my tummy is not a good look for me
Since starting this diet 7 days ago, I have lost 3lbs. Not going to lie, it has been a struggle and a half.
I'm a sucker for fast food. I'm a sucker for a cold beer on a patio. I have the willpower the size of a peanut. I had tried hitting the gym 5 days a week, drinking a lot of water etc, and have not noticed any drop in weight period. My eating habits were also horrendous. I would end up binge eating on the weekends as a "This won't really hurt me if I eat it, and besides I will go to the gym on Monday anyways"
Stepping on the scale last Sunday and seeing my weight at my heaviest, I knew I had to take charge and amp up my willpower. And I've done just that. I can actually be proud of my accomplishments. Not just with the 3lbs lost so far (8 days to go on the diet), but the willpower I have magically gained is unbelievable.
However, I've entered into phase II of the diet, and I'm introducing one meal a day back into my diet. I'm worried that eating a solid meal is going to prompt my body to regain everything I just lost (not like it's a lot, but maybe that is why). I know this is probably a very unhealthy way of thinking, and that kind of scares me. The last thing I want to do is develop an eating disorder.
I am just wondering if anyone else out there has tried the diet and was successful once it was completed?
I haven't been following the 10,000 steps to a T. But I am going to start back at the gym today to hopefully start seeing some more results before the diet is complete.
Any success stories, or help regarding this lifestyle change would be greatly appreciated.
