I was given the wonderful opportunity to review an amazing weight loss program sponsored by Liquid Amino Diet. I am extremely excited to start this journey to lose weight and get healthy. I started the first phase of the diet on Saturday morning and it has been going well. Right now they are doing a 20% off coupon code. Enter NewYou20 at checkout. This is good right now, January 2015!
Previously I did a diet called HCG diet protocol and lost 30 pounds and have kept it off. What I didn’t like about HCG is that I felt extremely deprived because of the low calorie requirements and the excessively strict diet plan. With the HCG diet plan you only eat 500 calories, but with Amino Diet you can have a LOT more calories and still lose weight. You are also allowed more foods. I like that Liquid Amino’s plan allows a better variety of food, it has a more realistic calorie requirement and you can exercise during the entire program.
Saturday and Sunday were my loading days. Tomorrow (Monday 7/16) I’ll start Phase 1 of the diet. This means a low calorie diet consisting of low glycemic fruits, veggies and meat. I can have small amounts of healthy oils (coconut, olive oil). I think I can have a very tiny amount of bread product like Melba toast or Italian bread stick. There is a diet protocol I have to follow. There’s certain foods I can’t have during phase 1. I’m supposed to drink half my body weight in water daily. That’s a lot of water and to tell you the truth I’m already worried about how I’ll make that happen.
As far as the exercise is concerned, well, I’m not sure what I’ll be doing for that yet. I talked to my sister and we’ll probably go walking a couple times a week. The book my kit came with isn’t too clear on the amount of activity I’m supposed to get so I’ll ask my coach and update you next week
