Fast forward several years....my husband is a 5 year veteran of the Police Department at this point, and I've lost 160 from a gastric bypass. It's been 5 years since my bypass, and my weightloss has really stuck in the mud, especially after giving birth to two children in that time. My husband's weight also ballooned from his shift work and all the fast food consumed while driving around in a car 8 hours a day. When my husband stopped wearing his body armor because he couldn't fit in it, I put my foot down and said enough is enough! But, who do we turn to?
I stumbled (literally!) on Eating for Life when I came to Amazon to research and search for dieting books and cookbooks. I ordered it without reading any reviews...without reading much about it at all because it seemed like the book we wish we had many years ago when we first tried to follow Body for Life.
Since we purchased this book 5 months ago, my husband has dropped 45 pounds, and I have lost 23 pounds. I find the meal plan incredibly easy to follow. We're never hungry, and the cheat day (which is really just a cheat meal for us at this point)has allowed us to stick to the plan because 6 days goes by fast, and on the seventh day, we know we can be bad.
One thing I will say...the recipes are excellent, and I've made almost all of them. I'm also a very fussy eater, and I haven't been disappointed at all! Some of the recipes were even a nice surprise because the picture didn't look all that great (sorry, Bill!)but the taste was fantastic! Even on our cheat days, we will often eat recipes from the book because we love them so much. Breakfast Burritos are a staple in our house and a great, healthy alternative to the eggs and bacon and hash browns we used to eat! We make fajita's all the time now, and can't believe we're "dieting" when we eat them! And Bill is correct...his Mom makes delicious enchilada's...again, we can't believe we're losing weight eating some of this stuff...but we are!
This book has also been helpful because, occasionally, I forget to make my husbands lunch, or I get too busy and he needs to buy dinner. Bill provided healthy alternatives for some well known fast food chains, and my husband has been able to stay on the program on those rare occasions, even while having to "eat out" with the guys.
We have coupled this book with the Abs Diet workout CD, and we feel better than we have in years. We are losing weight at a slower pace than some fad diets, but I really believe that we're doing it healthy and for keeps. I can't say enough wonderful things about this book.
