Sunday Meal Planning with a Fast Metabolism Update

As I write this post I'm wrapping up the first 3 weeks of  The Fast Metabolism Diet.

I'm down 8 lbs from the start and most of that weight came off in the first week.
But, that's not the best part.  The best part is that I'm caffeine-free and I'm sleeping better.  When I wake up in the morning, I feel rested and ready to live my life.  I'm not having big afternoon slumps because I'm eating nutritionally-rich food all the time.

I feel great.

So, I'll finish the 28 day plan and then I may even do a couple more weeks
so that I can get to my goal weight.  I'm not sure yet... either way, these foods are going
to be the main part of my diet.

So, as I enter week 4 let me give you a quick overview of the program:

Phase 1 (Monday & Tuesday)
Includes lots of carbs in the form of sprouted grains & fruit.
Phase 1 also includes lean protein.

Phase 2 (Wednesday & Thursday)
Includes lots of protein & endless veggies.

Phase 3 (Friday, Saturday & Sunday)
All of the above plus healthy fats.
I like to call this "The Nut Butter Phase".
Cashew butter is my new favorite- I love it on Ezekiel English muffins.

On Saturday night my family had pizza for dinner.  I ordered it from a fundraiser at church and my good friend Jenny delivered it today.

You should know that I'm serious about this diet when I tell you that my family ate pizza and I grilled myself some shrimp with baked sweet potato wedges.
