Many write in and ask:

Can I drink water on this weight loss plan?

Can I substitute anything?

What if I simply get too hungry before the large dinner and think I may quit if I can’t eat something sooner?

What is happening? – Why is the scale unchanged in pounds but my pants size, hips or waist are decreasing?

What can I follow this plan with to maintain the loss and to provide variety to that follow up?

First – drink plenty of water! No sodas, not even the ones with sugar substitutes. The plan reads: “No substitutes” However, it should be noted that many people have written in about making small changes that enabled them to stick with the program better, lose weight, and still have as much as a 5 pound success. They were ‘overall’ happy with the plan in spite of the reduced results.

They have tried to keep the calories the same. If a substitute was necessary for allergy reasons or availability, they tried to make the substitute contain the same essential food value, for example, protein for protein, green or root vegetable for green or root vegetable containing vitamins of a similar benefit. Or the change simply included eating one item from the dinner menu as an afternoon snack around 4 p.m. so they could minimize appetite until dinner.

Remember, too, if you are exercising while dieting, muscle weighs more than fat. You may not see the scale change much, however, you will probably still notice a difference. Many people have written in that they lost more than the 10 pounds, however, others who were starting exercise programs at the same time, wrote in that they only lost 5 pounds but could not believe they had lost inches off their waist and hips, or had reduced two pants sizes. It may be that men will lose more from their waists, while women will lose more from their hips. Individual differences are not uncommon.

Follow up diet plans include some of the following:

Besides simply eating healthier foods in more moderate portions (for example, you can try reducing your food portions from what you had been eating before the diet by ¼ -- it is not too difficult to imagine – and it could result in a continued one pound a week weight loss with just that simple change) there are some other diet plans worth considering, too.

A diet plan of eating small portions of healthy foods every three hours – The 3 Hour Diet – may work for you!

7 a.m. Breakfast

Or you may want to put some limits on carbohydrates, especially if you don’t get much activity during the day – for a low carb diet. Or you can think of limiting white foods – as many carbohydrates fall into that category – The color diet.

Diet Power Foods

The French-don’t-get-Fat suggestions for diet come from the theory that French People walk a lot each day in order to catch the Metro transportation system. Some people say they eat only foods worth the calories – in other words, they may eat a high calorie food now and then, like really delicious quiche, or chocolate dessert because it is very satisfying and worth the effort to walk it off later, but they avoid the half a bag of chips or junk food because it’s really not worth the extra calories. And they still limit the decadent food to a small portion – not all you can eat.

Another theory behind the referenced “French Diet Plan” is that a half of glass of wine with dinner twice a week after a particularly stressful day, will sometimes curb the desire to run to the freezer, pull out the ice cream, and eat half a gallon before bedtime, too. Moderation in everything and everything in moderation!

A frequently asked question from abroad, regarding the 3 day diet includes: What is a saltine cracker?

If you are living outside of the United States, it is probably just known by a different name – You may call it a biscuit or wafer, but essentially, here is a description of what a saltine cracker is:

“A popular baked white cracker that is flat, thin, crispy, and most often square in shape. It has a very mild to bland taste and is often served as a cracker to accompany soups, stews, chili, or oysters. They are also sometimes referred to as soda crackers. Saltines can be made with a flour, water, seasonings and leavened with bicarbonate of soda. Or, they may be unleavened and made with flour, water and seasonings only. Many crackers have very small holes spread throughout the surface.
