Your Meal-by-Meal Guidelines
This quick-start, 1,200-calorie, 3-day meal plan will reset your hunger hormones and stop cravings. This isn't enough calories to sustain you long term, but the fast results—our real-women testers lost up to 8 pounds in 72 hours!—will motivate you to keep going. (Search: How many calories should I eat and still lose weight?) On day 4 through week 5, eat 1,500 calories per day, adding an extra one to two servings each of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, dairy, protein, and fat.
