I know that sounds cheesy and sounds like I'm selling something but I'm not selling anything here. I just truly believe in this program after being on it just 5 complete days now. It has made that much of an impact on me already that I am telling everyone about it. Seriously, I am chatting to people online, at the grocery store, to my friends, etc. Have you ever been super excited about something you found out and wanted to share it with all your friends and loved ones? Well, that is how I am feeling right now about Personal trainer Food.
This is my before shot. This is the part that I disliked a lot. Here I am at the beginning of this diet.
263.2. This diet is a whole change of life for me. The premises of this diet is that you cut out all sugar, all flour and starches. I am 47 years old and I bet ya that I have eaten meat, potatoes, and bread at least once EVERY single day for 45 years. I grew up in the South and we eat meat & taters; biscuits & gravy; etc. My main foods are not off limits. What???? Will I survive? Will I even be able to do this?
The first thing you do to get started is to go to the Personal Trainer Food website and order your menu choices. I started the Rev program. On the Rev program, you choose a breakfast entree; for lunch a meat and a vegetable choice and for supper, two vegetable choices. There are programs where you choose for only 2 meals a day or a choice where you get meat for both your supper and lunch choices. The choices were really good and I was excited about the menu. All the food really did look good.
Once the food is ordered, they suggest you go on a 24-48 hour fast to rid your body of as much sugar and junk as it can. I did the 24 hour fast because as you can tell by looking at me, I likes my food. :-)
Also, since I am an insulin dependent diabetic, I have to be careful too. After 24 hours, I was ready to start and the food arrived the next day. I live in southern Oklahoma and the company is in Texas so it arrived super fast. This first order was for the normal 28 days worth of food and it weighed nearly 50 pounds!
All the food is completely cooked already and they flash freeze it to preserve the flavors. All you have to do is steam each package in the microwave from 2-4 minutes and you have a delicious meal ready right away. Example breakfast choices were cheese omelet with bacon; eggs with sausage and things like that. Here are 2 of my breakfast packages.
I was amazed how delicious all the different breakfast choices turned out. They taste just like they had been cooked in my kitchen. Everything is so flavorful and good. The yellow squash tasted like I had picked the squash from our garden and steamed it fresh.
The dinner choices look beautiful and taste great too. These amazing chicken strips are my absolute favorite.
The first few days I really struggled with cravings. I really wanted potatoes, bread, and sugary type foods. On this diet, all those are no-no's but what you can have is all the meat that you want. UNLIMITED! Eggs are unlimited. Leafy greens are unlimited...I like the sound of this. The first few days I felt like I was eating all the time. Every time I got hungry, I would supplement the meals I received by having a few boiled eggs, or a piece or two of lunch meat or a salad. I really thought, "boy, oh boy, I must be gaining a ton of weight". By day 4, I was getting concerned. I ate a lot but never once cheated. I was never really hungry either because I was allowed to snack and eat. They suggest you NOT weigh yourself but let the way your clothes fit show you if you are losing or not. I did weigh myself and was floored...I had lost almost 7 pounds.
Since the 2nd or 3rd day since I began this, my energy levels are so much better. I used to have to take a nap every single day but I have not had a nap (nor needed one) since I started. Also, my blood sugar levels are better controlled than they have been in YEARS. I have actually had to have my doctor adjust my insulin and he's excited about my results too. I will continue to blog about this and share my results. I hope everything continues to get better for me.
