More Multitudes of Diets!

As always, I am not recommending any of these diets for anyone, I am just putting them all in one place for you to compare and decide if you want to try any of them or none of them! Also, always consult your doctor before starting any diet. db
Lose 2 pounds every day!
For three weeks you are drinking all your meals and snacks.
Sample day:
Breakfast - In juicer, combine 3 large carrots, 1 cucumber, 1/2 beet, 1/2 peeled lemon, and 1" pc of gingerroot. Drink along with 8oz of warm water or herbal tea.
Snack 1 - In juicer, combine 1 cup mixed berries, 1 cored apple and 2 cucumbers
Lunch - In juicer, combine 1/2 cucumber, 1 large handful spinach, 3 carrots, 2 stalks celery, and 1/2 lemon. Drink with 8oz iced herbal tea.
Snack 2 - In juicer, combine 2 cored apples, 1 cucumber, and 1 large handful of dandelion greens or spinach.

Snack 3 - In juicer, combine 1 c mixed berries, 1 cucumber and 1/2 peeled grapefruit. Drink with 1 large glass iced herbal tea.

Week 4 and after, have one glass of juice, 2 pieces of fruit, and 3 cups of veggies daily. Eat fish, lean meat, skinless poultry, eggs and protein powder.

None of the veggies are peeled when you eat them. If you are concerned about what toxins may be on your produce, rinse them in 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with 1 gallon of water or buy organic produce.

Drop 16 lbs by Christmas while eating what you love! (from a magazine date 12/15/08)
This diet requires that you take Phase 2, which is a white kidney bean extract that blocks starch absorption. You are to consume a daily diet of 55% carbs, 30% protein and 15% fat. You will also need to drink 8 - 16oz of water each time you take the capsules to prevent constipation and sub-par results. You take a total of 3000 mg daily of the Phase 2.
If fatty foods are your diet downfall, you can take Chitosan which is a form of fiber that binds fat and flushes it out of the body. You also take it with 8 - 16 oz of water each time.
If you are perimenopausal, you'll need to also take Natrol Carb Interceptor with your Phase 2 to help prevent blood sugar swings.

According to Brazilian researchers, for each extra milligram of B6 that dieters get from foods like red meat, potatoes and bananas, they lose an extra 3.3 pounds. B6 helps metabolize foods and turn their calories into energy. B6 creates a hormonal balance helping people to sleep better. Without enough B6, the body can't make neurotransmitters like tryptophan, dopamine and serotonin which are linked to improved mood, less stress and an increased sense of well-being. Serotonin specifically reduces carb cravings.
