What I love about the 6 Week Plan is the fact that it is not simply a list a recipes for people to make for each particular day. It is more a set of rules so people can cook what they want provided that they follow the rules.
I do think the most important rule out of all of them is certainly the Eat 3 More Pieces of Fruit and Vegetables a day. This is something that SO many people are missing out on, and I personally think it is at the root of the obesity issue that we suffer with nowadays.

Eating slowly is the hardest part to eat well. I don’t know how to describe, but by chewing them slowly and put them longer in my mouth make them taste weird. But I do amazed on how the tastes changed. I take rice as my carb resource, and by chewing slowly and longer deliver me a sweet and soft taste in my tounge.
As the author of a weight loss plan based on good nutrition and nothing else, I applaud what these people are doing. Well done! I do hope you manage to keep the good eating habits up for the rest of your life, that is just so important.

Here is a great clean eating recipe:
1 scoop of protein
3 egg whites / 1 whole egg
1/2 cup oatmeal
splash of vanilla extract
touch of cinnamon
stir and pour
I encourage my patients to eat 4-5 small meals throughout the day and each with a small amount of protein and a complex carbohydrate. That coupled with some exercise will keep the metabolism up and allow weight loss ASAP.
I cant agree with you more about keeping your fridge and shelves stocked with the right food. Make sure you plan your meals on weekly basis. No surprises have helped me achieve my goals.
