I hope you realize that your new dietary plan is for the rest of your life, not just for 5 to 6 weeks. I don't know what your previous "diet" consisted of, but if you go back to eating it, you will go back to the way you used to look when you were eating it.

Oh, and a couple of dietary tips. Try brown rice instead of white, if white is what you are currently eating, and you can add turkey, lean beef, and lean pork to your protein list if you wish. Just remember your portion control. A serving of protein (meat, fish, tofu, whatever), is 4 ounces, which can be replaced by 2 ounces of cheese. A serving of vegetables is 6 ounces (corn and peas are not vegetables, they are carbohydrates!) a serving of carbohydrates such as potato (preferably sweet), rice (preferably brown), or pasta (preferably whole grain) is 1/2 cup cooked, and you can eat all the salad you want, as long as you limit the dressing to 2 tablespoons. Good luck, and happy eating.

I don't know what your fitness goal is... but complete deprivation (beer) is often a recipe for failure. I know that beer (and sugar) are my own Achilles' Heel keeping me from getting "six-pack abs" (ironic, no?) but I'm starting with a serious REDUCTION rather than elimination of the things I like so much. I guess I could THINK about elimination for 5 weeks for cleansing purposes, but it could never be a long-term strategy.

Good for you - I think the trainer makes all the difference in the world. I hired one for one session only - to show me the ropes. He still helps me out at the gym alot though. Good luck!
