- A REALISTIC PLAN
The underlying theme of this plan is a belief that realistic goals can be achieved in a “style of life” that is not difficult to maintain. The program was the result of a need to lose weight that I had accumulated over the years. My Doctor prescribed ‘marching orders’ were to change my life to reverse this gain with the real goal to maintain a lower weight forever. I set a realistic goal of losing 20 pounds in a YEAR. I know a year sounds less impressive than other diets you have probably seen, but I didn’t gain that weight in a few weeks so I knew it should take a longer effort to lose the love handles and keep them off. ( Not only did I maintain the loss, I continued losing until I reached my ‘college weight’ with a loss of almost 30 pounds in two years.)
I do have one quick VERY IMPORTANT POINT to make. Before you begin this process you should CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR to establish any personal restrictions you might have that conflict with the elements of this plan. For example, If you are lactose intolerant or allergic to certain foods, part or all of this plan may not be appropriate for you. I actually began this journey after a chat with my family doctor who provided the inspiration and advice for me create the CURL PLAN. I also found the annual follow-up visits extremely valuable as way of measuring and evaluating my results.
So enough hype! Let’s get to the steps I took to lose the weight and keep it off.
