I started the 1:1:1 diet over the Memorial Day weekend in 2014. Since then I have gained a healthy perspective on food and how to eat. The “healthy perspective” I am talking about is a healthy mental perspective, which is the true battle. I did not feel denied, or cheated “because I am on a diet.” It is just a way to eat that make sense and that I could rationalize – we raise our kids that they can pick out “one” toy in the store to buy, and cannot have not all of them – they have to choose. I can pick “one” [and not all] of fat/carb/protein and be happy with and in control of the “one” that I pick.
All of the normal diet restrictions were removed and the plan actually makes sense and works. It’s easy to follow and flexible. I typically follow a hybrid version of the diet incorporating both the regular 1:1:1 and the accelerated program, depending on how I feel and what I need to fuel my planned workout. In just over 1 year, I have lost over 100 pounds, have gone from a size 4x, 24 to a size M, 8/10 and am participating in my first 1/2 marathon next weekend. I cannot thank you enough for what this book and this program has done for me. I have fought weight my entire life and finally feel like I have a solid grasp on things and a healthy perspective. My doctor has taken me off of all my high blood pressure medication and wants me to be an inspirational speaker for her patients.
