I'm not one to diet. With Greek & Italian heritage, I'm constantly eating pasta, rice, red meat & everything else weight-loss guru's say to lay off of. Not to mention, even if I do really well on a diet, I ruin it on the weekends with take-out & delicious treats from around the town.
And then I discovered Brett Hoebel on Friday. I've already dropped 3 pounds & the "diet" is incredibly easy.
In case you just joined this blog, I have a vacation scheduled & I'm eagerly trying to lose some weight before jet-setting. I'm excited to get my beach body & prance around in a bikini on sands like these...
An example of a mealplan for me is:
8oz water with lemon juice (upon waking)
1/2 cup oatmeal with cinnamon & berries for breakfast
Rice cake slathered with peanut butter for a snack
Salad with grilled chicken, berries & walnuts for lunch
Apple with cinnamon and/or almond butter for snack
Now dinner varies, I've had a Lean Cuisine, salad, eggs for separate dinners. It's definitely the meal I like to give the most variety to.

Honestly, this isn't even like a diet for me. It's all the foods that I normally eat, & it still gives flexibility to throw in somewhat less healthy meals here & there. For example, J's mom made a taco bar for last weekend's get-together. I loaded up my tortilla with lettuce, tomatoes & olives, then used sparingly the hamburger meat & other toppings.
Here's what Brett includes in the diet:
Brown Rice (this includes rice cakes)
Natural nut butters (peanut, almond, hazelnut, etc.)
Lean meat (chicken, turkey, fish)
