    Talking Frozen dinner diet Try it!!!

    I was on this diet and I lost 15 lb in 3 weeks.Try it, it really works


    ***Important - Drink at least 64 ounces a day of water, decaffeinated iced tea, Diet soft drinks or decaffeinated coffee.

    ***AVOID caffein as it can stimulate hunger.


    One serving of cereal with 4 ounces skim milk
    8 ounce glass of orange juice
    8 ounce drink (water, tea, diet soda or coffee

    NOTE - Cereal should be fat free or less than 2grams of fat per serving and should be low in simple sugars.
    It should also contain no more than 120 calories per serving.
    Healthy Choice Cereal, Cream of Wheat, Crispix and Special K meet this criteria.

    SNACK (9:00 AM to 10:00 AM)

    1 Apple or Orange
    8 ounce drink (water, diet soda, tea or coffee)

    NOTE - SNACK - Important not to substitute any other fruit,
    Apples and oranges have high fiber contents that help the fructose to be released into your system slowly
    , thus helping to prevent insulin surges and help to control hinger.


    Frozen Dinner
    8 ounce drink (water, diet soda, tea or coffee)

    NOTE - Frozen dinner should have 350 calories or less and no more than 9 grams of fat.
    Most Healthy Choice or Lean Cuisine meals meet this criteria.

    SNACK (3:00 PM - 4:00PM)

    1 Apple or Orange
    8 ounce drink (water, diet soda, tea or coffee)


    Frozen Dinner (see lunch note above)
    8 ounce drink (water, diet soda, tea or coffee)

    NOTE: Salad can have unlimited lettuce, 1 cup chopped fresh vegetables and fat free salad dressing or flavored vinegar.


    1 Banana
    8 ounces skim milk

    NOTE: Banana and skim milk can be blended together with ice to make a smoothie.

    Hi, I just did an analyses (computerized) of this menu using Healthy Choice(HC) Chicken Parmigiana, and HC Sirloin Tips as the entrees, and apples for the fruit, and Sunkist Fresh OJ & Special K (1 cup)cereal:

    Calories = 1323

    Carbs = 67%, protein = 22.9%, total fats = 10.1%

    Saturated fats = 66.6% (oooooooo! bad #!)
    Mono fats = 11%, Poly fats = 22.4%

    Fiber = 10.07gms (ONLY!)
    Cholesterol = 145mgs

    Provides only 50% or LESS of magnesium, potassium, and Vit E & B12

    Provides OVER 100% (some of the non-water soluable Vits, like A, are over 300%!)
    of Vits A, C, D, B6, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, and folate.

    Not quite 100% of iron, zinc, and sodium
    Yes, you'll lose weight, for awhile. But with such a high SIMPLE carbohydrate diet, you're likely to GAIN after awhile, plus set the stage for onset of type II diabetes, cholesterol and heart problems. Liver/pancreas/gallbladder wouldn't like it much, either. Watch taking vitamin supplements with this, too. You CAN overdose on certain vits, and this plan has a VERY unbalanced assortment. Of course, that is assuming you actually ABSORB the vits in it. With such a low fiber content, it's more likely that the intestines would tend to block, preventing much absorption. That's also assuming that this highly processed food digests slowly enough to allow for absorption.

    Well, sorry to be such a downer ( ), but it never hurts to investigate. For a short term fix, this is probably OK, barring any existing health issues. But, as a long term solution, or way of life, it doesn't present as being very healthy.
