This last week I tried the Suzanne Somers diet.
This diet is all about combinations of foods. Here is the basic run down.
Meals are supposed to be three hours apart, which can make you feel a little bit hungry, I routinely found myself watching the clock.
Most days I had some fruit for breakfast, either apple sauce, oranges, or bananas (or a combo of those). For lunch I usually had a chef salad with ham and turkey. That salad comes with a roll, so I would wait 3 hours and then eat my roll as a mid-day snack. For dinner I would have something like chicken and broccoli, or some other meat / vegetable combo.
I wasn't too happy with diet, I felt like the combination restrictions were a little difficult. For instance, I wasn't able to come up with a good idea for carb / vegetable combos, so I usually had a small roll or nothing. I only lost 1 pound this week, which makes me wonder if it was due to a decline in exercise or if I've approaching another weight loss plateau.
Suzanne Somers was quite famous before I was born. Her diet has good name recognition, but in a recent US News diet review result, she wasn't even mentioned. I know some people have had success with this program, but I'll continue looking for something better.
