The first step towards this diet is to choose a day that you want to start. Select date is very important as this will be the day of the week that you want to do your weekly weigh in’s. As part of the program you are only allowed to weight yourself once a week. This gives a more accurate record of weight loss. Weighing yourself every day, is not a good indicator of how much weight you have loss. Also that you consider yourself in the morning, without clothing, and before a meal.
If you have not already bought your favorite food, go ahead and do it. There are no food restrictions on this diet. If you are sedentary, you want to stay in between 1200-1300 calories a day. If you do moderate exercise would bump that up to 1400-1500 per day. If you are exercising or are involved in an exercise I would bump that up to 1500-1600 per day. When buying food allows you to read the calories on the label, you may need a measuring cup or a diet scale to have accurate proportions. However, you can go CalorieKing. com and get calories for some food! Do not forget to count drinks on the calories!
Diary of what you ate and calories. In addition to the weekly weigh ins. Once you have a good understanding of this system you do not have to count calories anymore. I started this routine after my daughter 5 years ago, and I do not have to keep a journal or count calories anymore. I know what I can put together all day. Good Luck!
