I'm on week 2 now. I hope I can say that week 1 was a success but that would be cheating myself. Okay so I was unable to follow the meal plan exactly, but tried my best to follow the recommended portions, and I really saw to it that I didn't eat more than 1/2 cup of rice during lunch and dinner. Also made sure I had a serving of fruit and veggies for lunch and dinner, and spoonfuls of yogurt (at least once a day).
So far my challenges are :
1. Shopping for ingredients... I know the meal plans have already been set so they are easy to follow and cook/prepare and that the ingredients are easy to find, but the supermarket nearest to me almost always don't have all the stuff that I need for the week. So what I do is just substitute whenever and whatever I can.
2. The fish dishes... I don't like bony fish (and my husband and son, too), so I'm unable to follow the suggested fish recipes. So far I've only cooked sarciado and bistek na tuna (fresh). Hope that's okay. I'll just try to find other recipes that use tuna.
I'm also a stubborn little kid. I didn't weigh/measure myself last Sat! Promise, I will tomorrow and next Sat. Haha!
That's it, just thought I'd share my experience so far. I love that this program makes switching to healthy eating easy! ^_^
