The Princess Project: Pre-Holiday SOS Diet!

diets that work, how to avoid holiday weight gain, holiday weight gain, The Princess ProjectGobble! Gobble!

Thanksgiving is just one week away, and that means so is the “open season” of eating we call The Holidays!

It starts with you behaving by sticking to the crudite before your meal. You plan to eat some white meat and salad, but then you have a glass of wine. Before you know it, you’re sampling stuffing, some potatoes, and pie. Then the pie goes a-la-mode and the diet goes hasta la vista!

Even as a dairy-avoiding-vegetarian, overeating packs on the pounds. I have been dieting diligently for a few months now and really don’t want to ruin the seven pound weight loss that I have earned. I am also being realistic that this month is the start of  major mealtime-meltdowns!

With that, I present to you my holiday eating damage control diet: SOS!

I think it’s the perfect rescue from drowning in a sea of calories this Holiday Season, so read on for more!

The Princess Project, weight loss advice, how to beat holiday weight gainOhhh me oh my, how time flies by!

For anyone who was following my diet reviews, no I did not starve to death on the Skinny Bitch Diet!

I hit a bit of a rough patch (work-life imbalance!) and before I knew it, days are flying by postless and m.i.a. I am sorry for the interruption, but I am back 🙂

I did stick to The Bitch for the month of September and I did lose about 5lbs by the end of it. I was able to ditch caffeine, meat, seafood, dairy, eggs, and most white devils (sugar, flour, salt).

Find out how I’ve been doing and my holiday binge buster too!

The Princess Project: Day One of The Skinny Bitch Diet!

The Princess Project, the best diet advice, diets that workAhh, vacation! A little break from reality and, despite my best efforts, from dieting as well.

I did my best to stick to eating clean, practicing portion control, and to keeping up at the gym. For the most part, it worked. I didn’t gain any weight, but I didn’t lose any either.

It’s time to detox, and that’s going to be a real ‘bitch”. A Skinny Bitch that is!

Despite any negative connotations, this diet couldn’t be further from it’s moniker! Read on to find out the skinny on The Skinny Bitch Diet!

The Not-So-Amazing Acai Berry Diet!

Last week, shortly after I blogged about the potential health and anti-aging benefits of adding Acai to your diet on FightFineLines.com, the FITFineLines team came across an incredible news story!

Reporter Julia Miller at News 6 took it upon herself to try the “Acai Optimum” and “Advanced Colon Diet” for 4 weeks (This sounds surprisingly similar to The Princess Project right here on FIT!). After 4 weeks, she lost 25 pounds with no special diet, and no intense exercise! Sounds like the mighty Acai just got mightier!!

This amazing “news report,” impressed us until we read the fine print:

“…THIS WEBSITE IS ONLY ILLUSTRATIVE OF WHAT MIGHT BE ACHIEVABLE FROM USING THIS/THESE PRODUCTS, AND THAT THE STORY/COMMENTS DEPICTED ABOVE IS NOT TO BE TAKEN LITERALLY.”

We quickly realized that we were looking at an advertisement for a fasting/cleansing type set of products, and NOT a real news story. Bummer dude…

I’ll refer to my own personal “Homeostasis Food Plan”, which you’ll be reading more about very soon, for an explanation of why cleanses, colonics and detoxes are pseudo medicine and not recommended by western doctors:
