If you didn’t already know about it I’m on a diet, the Chocolate Diet to be exact. You can read about how it started here. I’ve been on a get fit plan since the start of the year, but injury got in the way and I stalled. Sitting up there in the top of the overweight range for my height, and somewhat startled because I really didn’t think I was that bad. I’ve managed (albeit very slowly) to lose ten kilos over the past year according to my little Wii Fit chart, and I still cannot fathom where I was holding all that weight. I really couldn’t. I really didn’t think I was that heavy, but don’t we all? So I started the Chocolate Diet at 75.3 kilos two weeks ago.
The Chocolate Diet has fitted in nicely with the school holidays for me as the minions are eating us out of house and home, my lunch soon gets stolen unless I can clutch it tightly in my fist. At the start I was feeling very tired, but got into the vitamin B and sorted that out, I haven’t been hungry on this diet either. I have tried a couple of other versions of diet shakes and have found that I am ravenous by 2pm, and neither brand tasted as good as this one. So I’ve managed to stay the course and the weight started to drop off nicely, that little hurdle in the middle is there because I went away and ate crap over the easter weekend and forgot to pack my shakes. I totally forgot, really 😉
Here is how it works: The Chocolate Diet is a thoroughly researched, scientifically proven program that combines a scrumptious eating plan with our delicious Chocolate Diet Shakes to help you get your diet on track and your life back in control. Designed for quick results and tailored to your lifestyle you can use The Chocolate Diet Program for a short time if you just need to drop a few kilos, or you can use it for an extended time if you have a more significant weight loss goal. This Program Guide will explain exactly what to eat, when to eat and how much. All you need to do is follow the guide to achieve your desired results. You won’t go hungry. In fact, you’ll eat more often!
On The Chocolate Diet Program we recommend you eat six meals, rather than the usual three:
- One meal will be more substantial, which we call your Main Meal Option, usually your dinner meal but you can swap with your lunch meal
- Two meals will be Snack Meals Options
- Two of your meals will be your Chocolate Diet Shakes
- One meal will be your Chocolate Treat, preferably after dinner
In addition to the foods listed here you should aim to drink around two litres of water (6 – 8 glasses) each day. You can also have 2 – 3 cups of coffee or tea each day however avoid milky coffees like lattes or cappuccinos as they contain extra carbs.
Flexibility – The Key to Success The best thing is the daily program can be shuffled around to meet your lifestyle. For example, you may want to move your Dinner to Lunch and have a Chocolate Diet Shake at dinner. Or perhaps you may want to swap a Lighter Meal Option with a Shake of Main Meal. However your day pans out, you simply need to fit in your Main Meal, 2 Snack meals Options, 2 shakes, and your Chocolate Treat each day. In fact, you can substitute any of the Snack Meals Options or Main Meal Options with the equivalent meals listed on this website. We’ve designed The Chocolate Diet to fit into your lifestyle and family needs – not the other way round!
Now two weeks in I find myself a little further down the Wii chart, with a loss of 2.4 kilos! Yeah I’m pretty happy with that, and I’m continuing to go down. I’ve managed to add in some light exercise (can’t bounce just yet) trying to tone things up here and there.
The consultant from the Chocolate Diet was very encouraging during her weekly calls to me, and I even chatted to the creator of Dr Lily on facebook about the diet (you can do that too on Monday nights). Thanks again for asking me to be your test blogger Chocolate Diet, six more weeks to go!
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: Last week I saw a fab pair of jeans on sale, there was only size 12 left. So I bought them and I decided that they would be my weight loss goal pants. Yesterday I decided to try them on, AND THEY FITTED!!! Size 12! I haven’t been that size since 1999 🙂
