Are you deliberately modifying your eating habits in any other way besides taking the oil, whey, and so forth? I was just curious as to whether you were also skipping meals or anything like that. The diet seemed to work best for me when I ate one meal a day, namely lunch. Michael, who had some of the best results in Seth's book, also skipped dinner.
I really appreciate your posts in various places. I think you've helped a lot of people with them.
I've tried some additional modifications recently.
I now take whey protein at about 5:30 a.m.
skip breakfast, have oil or sugar cubes at about 10:00 a.m.
Eat lunch (usually a sandwich).
Eat dinner (usually yogurt).
Today I had a sandwich and yogurt for lunch, some yogurt for dinner.
I had been eating three meals a day for the last 56 pounds, but I've hit a plateau for the last week or so (very slow weight loss again), so I'm changing up.
Before the plateau, I was eating as follows:
2 eggs, 2 slices dry toast, 2-3 ounces of orange juice for breakfast
sandwich and yogurt for lunch.
sandwich and yogurt for dinner.
(both sandwiches were dry, just bread and lunch meat or peanut butter and jelly, about 70 calories of filling in the sandwich, the yogurt was fat free plain, with a quarter cup of sugar).
I've only tried the change for two days (today is the second). Let me get into next week and I'll know a lot more.
The whey is great because I get 47 grams of protien with it. That frees me up to eat anything else in the day without having to worry about getting enough protien.
I'm still working out a transition, because I want to lose about 24 pounds between now and September 1st. We will see if I make it.
