No Crap Diet

I started this on Tuesday: so far I feel great.

The No fail No Crap Lo Crap Diet by Sherry Catlin

The Official No Crap Lo Crap Diet

For 2 weeks follow the:
No Crap Diet
Simply put.. No sugar, no rice, potatoes, pasta, bread or processed foods. No added chemicals. But to clarify that...

Sugar..raw or processed, corn syrup, sugar substitutes
Potatoes of any kind..
Pasta of any kind..
Breads, crackers, chips, cookies Sports Bars or processed foods ...
Any food or condiment (check your ketchup, musturd and salad dressings) that is processed with sugar or contains chemicals)
Any food that contains chemicals. (ingredients that you can’t pronounce and you don’t know what they do)
Any Soda, sports drink, juices that contain anything besides 100% fruit or vegetable juice
Any Processed cereals..containing any flour, wheat, barley, rye, oats or rice..
Any fried foods that have a coating of bread crumbs or flour.

That being said..Most foods you can eat:

ANY fruit.. (If they are dried, check to see if they are processed with sugar)
ANY vegetable except the ones noted above...
ANY meat, fish or poultry (canned tuna or other fish or meat okay if no chemicals used in processing)
ANY Bean
Eggs any way..
Any Nuts.. May be roasted and salted but no “beer nuts” or ones processed with sugar or chemicals
ANY real Cheese-avoid processed cheeses with chemicals or sugars.. Cottage cheese okay.. Check ingredients
Any Milk
Yogurt-with no sugar
Peanut butter-okay if it is the kind processed without sugar and chemicals.. Just peanuts
Coffee or tea- sweeten with honey or maple syrup.
100% fruit juices with no added sugar..(cut with water as you will want to drink more)
Condiments okay if made with no chemicals or sugar.
Butter and oil okay for cooking..

Shop before you start..Shop the outside aisles of the store.
Get lots of easy eating fruits.. Grapes, bananas, apples, plums, oranges, clementines, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple etc.
Get lots of easy eating vegetables to have around carrots, celery, jicama, cucumber sticks.. These can be used for dips and cheese instead of crackers also..
Get nuts you like..
Think of things you can have for for breakfast.. Fruit and yogurt or smoothies.. Cottage cheese and fruit, eggs or omelets..
Think of things you can have for lunch.. Any kind of fresh salad with “yes” ingredients.. tuna, chicken, ceasar, cobb, club, nicoise (minus potatoes, croutons.)Soups, Stews, Curries, chili.. Lots of one pot a, one bowl dishes out there. Smoothies. Sandwiches made with large lettuce leaves instead of bread.
Dinner is easy..just replace your starch (rice, potatoes, pasta) with another vegetable.
Soups are great.. Most can be made from Yes ingredients..
Sweeten with a little honey or maple syrup
No eating while walking..sit down and enjoy your food.
When looking at packaged foods check the “ingredients” for “No” sugars and chemicals not the “Nutrition Facts”( “yes” foods do contain natural sugars) and that is fine.
If you think you are hungry, have something to drink first and wait 15 minutes.. We tend to interpret signs of thirst as hunger.
Move more and lift some weights.
You should lose around 8-10 pounds in two weeks, mostly around your mid-section.
Any questions.. Email or call me anytime..

After 2 weeks if you are happy with your body but appreciate the benefits of no crap.. You can move to
The Lo Crap Diet..
You can add in a “hand full” amount of “crap” a day.. Choose your favorite crap! Then keep an eye on how your body responds.
