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!

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

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: End of Week One of The Special K Challenge

The Princess Project, diets that work, the Special K diet, the Special K ChallengeOne week down, and one pound down as well!

The Special K Challenge (SKC) has been making meal planning insanely easy. Two out of three meals a day consist of a bowl of cereal! I have also been following the plan’s recommendation of munching on two different Special K snack items (one mid-morning and one mid-afternoon), and adding a serving of fruit with my meals.

With eight flavors of cereal, fifteen snack options, and eight additional meal-supplement products there is a lot of variety to keep you from getting bored.

Read on for my picks of the week and also for a tasty SKC recipe too!

The Princess Project: Week 2 of The Eat Clean Diet

The Eat Clean Diet, The Princess Project, how to lose weight, diets that workI’ve been an Eat Clean-vegan all , and am feeling fantastic! I’ve lost three pounds total, so far, and am heading to the beach today…in a bikini!

People tend to think that a vegan diet is super bland and restrictive, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! The Eat Clean Diet already promotes cutting down on dairy (no one ever lost weight on the “eat cheese diet”), avoiding alcohol, and sticking to lean proteins, so veg’ eating fits the bill perfectly!

Read on for some tips on adopting some vegan-ism into your diet and also for the recipe of the quick, delish Eat Clean snack I’m packing in my beach bag ! Continue reading

The Princess Project

The Princess Project, The Eat Clean Diet, diets that workI want to be a “25”  again before I turn “35“. If you’re thinking, “Don’t we all?”, you’re probably around the same age as me, and dreaming of your wild nights out and being able to survive on 4 hours of sleep every night. What I really mean though, is that I have a pair of ultra sexy, J Brand jeans that are a size “25“, and I did fit in them when I bought them 2 years ago (in my 30’s!). Now, they just lay there, patiently waiting to go out one night, like a lonely housewife.

The Princess Project, Eat-Clean Diet, best diets, fitnessMy plan of action:

  1. try a new diet every 30 days
  2. hit the gym regularly
  3. take control of my body for the rest of my life!

This is The Princess Project; follow me to learn, laugh, and lose!

First diet starts July 1: The Eat Clean Diet awaits!
