Hi, Darcy. If it feels like too much food, don’t fight it – it’s better that you are in tune with your true hunger and satiety signals. You can cut back a little on starchy carbohydrate foods, but be careful not to eat so little during the day that you become ravenous in the evening, or end up on a starvation or semi-starvation diet that will ultimately work against your long-term success.
With regard to waste concerns, you can repeat courses in meals, whole meals, and even whole days as often as you wish to finish foods.

I am struggling to create the food i need to eat. I am not a cook and seem to find items on my menu that I have to take 30 min or more time to make. I also worry the ingredients will spoil before I use it the second time. Lots of waste. Can most of these food be frozen and still taste good microwaved?

I’m new to this plan. Is this where I submit questions? It appears that this forum is back in 2015. Are there more recent posts?

Hi, Patito. The 60-Day Challenge – which has been replaced by the 8-Week Program – is an eight-step way to ease new Clubmembers into the program with gradual changes.

Hi, crr1005. We haven’t had the 60-Day Challenge as is, but it has been replaced by the 8-Week Program.

Hi, driekes, and congratulations on your progress! We wish you continued success. You can get more protein into shakes by adding freshly ground chia and flax seeds, peanut butter, yogurt or kefir, and using edamame as a vegetable.

Why is this forum dated for 2015? IS this program not updated?

So it is 60 days in for me and I have finished my first eight week challenge. Now for the second. I lost 15 pounds so far. Exercise and diet. I am looking to mix things up with more pureed and drinkable shakes this time. How can I get more protein into shakes?

Week 5 and down 9 pounds. Key for me is measuring portion sizes and ramping up excercise.

Hi, bargainfurniture, and welcome! You can use the foods you already have by accessing the personal version of the Menu Planner Application. To do this, click on “My Food Choices” in the toolbar above your existing menu, and make selections from the food lists – when you’re done, click on “SAVE AND CREATE MENU” at the bottom of the page.

Yes Gmom, I was wondering the same thing.
I live in rural Mississippi and just joined.

Hi Wendy, and welcome 🙂 From what you’re described about your challenges, you have come to the right place. Our program is designed to support heart health and gentle cleansing from negative effects of such things as chemotherapy.
You can find great advice in the “Tips and Tricks” thread in this forum category. On our end, we offer the “Program Guide” and “Quick Start Guide” for general advice for the journey. I am also here to answer any specific questions you may have.
