A friend of mine, who is also in my age group, recommended this book. I'd never heard of it before, but went out to Amazon to read the premise and the reviews. The reviews seemed like they were all written by people like me. I read on and saw that she provided options for tailoring The Plan to vegans and vegetarians, so I decided "what the hell" and bought the book. I spent the first week reading the book and looking through the recipes. There's a fair amount of prep work that needs to be done to get your food ready for the first week. That said, the recipes are all super simple to make. They're not gourmet, but they're palatable. I read the book's Plan for the first week and then pulled down the vegetarian and vegan menus off her website and kind of put together a hybrid plan for the week.
I've been on The Plan for a week now and have lost.........wait for it..........9 pounds!!! How is that even possible? I don't know and I'm not asking - who cares? And even though I'm only one week into this and still have a fair number of days left to go, I don't even really care what happens from here on out because I'm down 9 pounds! The Plan makes perfect sense to me and is the first time I've ever come across a diet plan that is tailored to your body. I did another "medically supervised" diet plan where you were eating 1,200 calories a day and were supposed to take off 2-3 pounds a week. When I struggled to take off 1/2 a pound a week, I asked them why and they couldn't answer me. If it's a simple calories in/calories out equation, then anyone who was dedicated could lose weight. For some of us, our bodies attack the food we put in it and that has to be remedied. Her premise is such an interesting concept and explains so much about those folks who we all know who seem to eat whatever they want and stay as skinny as a rail. Most of us chalk it up to a faster metabolism, but how could someone's metabolism be really that much faster than another person's? The way I interpret The Plan is that it's a personalized eating plan that tailors foods to your body chemistry so that we all can eat "whatever we want" and stay slim and fit. We all have the same metabolism, but those people who stay slim eating everything have a much more efficient metabolism because there aren't any foods that hang up in their system. For the rest of us, it's a scientific puzzle to figure out what works for us and what doesn't. I also think she's really on to something with the whole aging process and our systems becoming sensitized to certain foods that once gave us no trouble when we were younger.
I am a huge believer in this book and plan. I have turned three other people on to it and they're now doing it as well. Given that it's the only thing that has worked for me, if you're in the same boat and find you can't budge the scale no matter what you do, it's at least worth a try. I feel great, my arthritis has lessened, and I'm eating avocados for the first time in a couple of decades! Give it a try.
I had high hopes for this plan, but I do not think it is balanced. I literally would eat breakfast and then have to lay down and sleep within an hour, I was exhausted all day and actually gained weight on this diet...all while eating the low reactive foods. The meal planning for this diet was obsurd and the food was nasty tasting. I am a certified holistic nutritionist myself and I already only eat a whole unprocessed food dirt, so it wasn't like my palate was just used to sugar and salt and fast food garbage...even at that, I just could not adjust to the food. I tried the diet to rule out any other, less obvious allergies that I might have, but I gained weight with all of it, even the cleanse, so I really couldn't guage my reactions acurately.
This plan has obviously worked for many, but it is not for everyone. If you start this plan and feel worse, do not brush it off as all part of the plan, it just may not be right for you for underlying reasons.
For years I had digestive issues. At 20 years old, I experienced my first gall bladder attack, though it took another 10 years to get the disease diagnosed and treated. I always had a very sensitive stomach, and anyone who has one knows what that feels like. Three years after I had my second child, I had about 10 lbs that wouldn't go away. This weight was all in my belly and more than one person asked me if I was pregnant. Now, I'm not an overeater and I'm on the slender side, so it wasn't a calorie issue. When I gained weight in wasn't all over, it was almost exclusively in my belly. So I would make healthier choices (low-fat cheeses, whole grain breads, egg whites) and mystifyingly my stomach bloated bigger. I would feel yucky, I would have stomach problems. I'm cutting out junk food so why is this happening? Why do I feel worse?
I was chatting with a friend who also has serious digestive issues like me and she mentioned Lyn-Genet's book. I instantly knew it was the book for me. I downloaded it on the Kindle (if I could do it over, I would get the hard copy so you can thumb through it easily) and she and I went though the process together.
THIS IS NOT A DIET. This plan allows you to test foods to see if you are intolerant to them. Intolerance simply means your body can't digest them well and reacts with inflammation. You will not cut calories. You will not exercise. You will eat only the foods on her menu, adding new ones in slowly, and checking weight to see if you react with inflammation. You begin with a detox and then you will start adding a new food back in every few days. Depending on your current health status, the detox can be really rough. My first day was awful and I felt like I was recovering from a sickness - lethargic, headache, etc. The second and third days were better, but I had serious brain fog. You are experiencing die-off and it's completely normal. Feeling bad means it's working! And by day four, whoa. WHOA. The detox was over and I experienced the greatest high in my life. I had amazing energy, a fantastic mood, and felt great. Day four showed me that what I put into my body affects ME greatly. I can no longer deny that I am what I eat.
During my elimination diet, I found out that I reacted to dairy, gluten, blueberry, egg, and cranberry. My reactions were two-fold: 1. I felt bad after eating them, either immediately by feeling nauseated or sluggish or later with digestive issues (sometimes a few hours, sometimes 2 days later); 2. the next day I gained weight on the scale (she will explain why daily weigh-ins are important and it's not vanity). A few months later, I had food testing done and what do you know, I am severely intolerant to casein in dairy and egg whites. Gluten, blueberry, cranberry, plus various other food items to a lesser extent. I guess I could have saved the testing money because my elimination diet from The Plan told me as much, but it goes to show you that the research behind this book is solid.
I don't know if everyone will be affected like I was. My sister went though it and didn't experience the post-detox high. Maybe my issues are far more severe than hers. Either way, everyone that was on The Plan lost weight. My belly is flat again. My friends lost at least 10 lbs each in 21 days. The weight loss is nice (your weight will plateau at where your body wants you to be) but feeling better is the reward. Low inflammation is the reward. A clear head is the reward.
I initially did The Plan in the Summer or 2013. Since then I have fallen off the wagon several times, detoxed several times, and felt varying levels of highs and lows, but since I always stay away from my trigger foods so I haven't gained my no-baby belly again. I now see a ND who has me on a low-inflammation diet and a handful of supplements, including a high-quality probiotic. Like any lifestyle change, The Plan takes work and dedication. But I can promise you that if you stick with it, even for just a few days, your life will be changed as well.
