Once I replaced the foods I used to overindulge in, like ice cream, with lower-cal snacks, such as roasted sunflower seeds or Special K Chocolatey Delight cereal, I began making better choices automatically.

I’ve finally hit phase three of the Metabolic Balance diet, which is not that different from phase two apart from now I have a bigger list of food to choose from. It’s like Christmas! I’m free to add oil, broccoli, asparagus and pork to my repertoire and I’m allowed one “cheat” meal once a week of whatever food I want. Seriously, it’s crazy how satisfying a tablespoon of oil can be.
Same here excercise wise. None yet and 20 lbs already. I am required to sweat by way of a sauna, whirl pool, or really hot bath, anywhere from 15 to 30min to rid the body of toxins and burn fat and excess water. Also, I drink a gallon plus water each day. So necessary for weight loss.
