I Think I Could Do This Diet!

As a mother of a fourteen month old little boy and one who wants to have another child soon I am always thinking about trying to lose those extra pounds I have hanging on. Yes, I was blessed to have lost all my pregnancy weight pretty quickly and I have the exclusive breastfeeding I did for the first four months to thank for that. But, I had some extra weight on me when I got pregnant and I have a very happy marriage to thank for that. ;-) I guess I got a little too comfortable.

I am feeling crunch time now because I really want to have another sweet baby. I want to lose those extra pounds and keep them off for awhile before I get pregnant. I am trying to tap into the habits I established when I lost over 40 pounds before I got married. One of those habits that I really enjoyed was that I would always give myself a CHEAT day on the weekends. I would eat anything and everything I wanted for one day. You would think that I would gain weight because of those days but it was actually the opposite! I would lose a pound or two each weekend because of those Cheat days. I thought I was onto something and I still tell my friends about that tactic.

Well, guess what?! I really was onto something BIG! The Cheat to Lose Diet follows that very same philosophy. The major difference, though, is that they actually have science to back them up. I just went based on experience (A + B = C). I love this idea because I have a terrible sweet tooth or what my Dad calls a "Fat Tooth." Whatever you want to call it, I've got it. I can't go weeks on end without a little indulgence and the idea of a diet that incorporates that into it is a little taste (ha ha) of heaven for me. You just cheat strategically here.

The Cheat to Lose Diet has a book that details all the lovely findings behind the diet. There is also an online community where you can follow the program with other people. It has been proven that more people lose more weight when they use online diet plans than those who do it alone. The customized-to-you program will provide weekly meal plans so that you'll eat the right foods at the right time. You'll get a library of recipes, a fitness plan, and an online community to show support.

Go check them out and Happy Cheating!!
