I am not good at counting calories or counting grams of fat. I can’t keep up with the calculations of calories per portion and when I try, it drive me nuts. A couple years ago, I was searching for a miracle diet that would help me lose about 15 pounds over the summer. I had tried and failed every diet or weight loss program that I came across- not because they don’t work, but because I couldn’t complete them successfully. I knew that I needed to find something easy that didn’t require portion control, counting calories, and….. exercise. I needed to find something that I could completely cut out of my diet so that I didn’t have to keep up with anything extra. Something like a ‘just don’t eat this and that’s it’ type of diet. A few months prior, I had just finished a year of vegetarianism and it actually wasn’t too hard for me. (I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could be a vegetarian for 1 year. Not for any particular reason, just to see if I could do it.) It was simple, I just didn’t eat meat and that was it. I wanted a diet similar to this for the simplicity.
Well, I found something that worked for me. I refer to it as my ‘secret weapon diet’ because it works fast, is pretty simple, and I can do it anytime I need to shed a few pounds quickly. Short disclaimer- this is not necessarily a diet that will leave you with long lasting results because it’s probably not something you will want to commit to for the rest of your life. If you are looking for a diet that is actually more of a lifestyle change that you will continue to do for a long time, this probably isn’t what you’re looking for. However, if you are like I was and desperate to lose a few pounds in a short amount of time, whether it be for an upcoming event or just to lose that extra weight you gained over the holidays then keep reading.
I am about to share with you how I lost 20 pounds in 2 months without any exercise.
