New Update on my Fatness

The Green Smoothie Breakfast

Today is Day Nine of my nutritional intervention by Ilana Katz.  This plan was mentioned in this post, which told everyone what I weighed.

And boy, did the emails pour in from you guys!  What is this plan?  You are not doing this safely! That is not safe weight loss!  How can I get this plan!?

Last week, I was hungry.  I started on the Plan on Sunday.  By Thursday, I was down 8.8 pounds.  Yes, that is correct.  The Expert was down 7.8 pounds.  Yes, that is also correct. Amazing results, strong trajectory, and I had lots of energy.Then I spent the weekend falling off a little (because we were WC… “without children”).  So we had a few days off-plan, but I am happy to report….

I am still down 7 pounds.   In a little over a week. So.

Many of you have asked about this Plan (there is a Gluten Free version too).  I wanted to just give it away, but I realized that I can’t because it’s not “mine” to give away. It’s Ilana’s years of hard work and meal-planning to perfection.  But I wanted to see if she would give it away to you guys for a discount. So I asked her. And she agreed that all my Swim Bike Moms and Dads deserve this plan…


Ilana is offering it to SBM friends for $12 (Gluten Free is $15).  This is the exact SAME menu that I am eating. The same one that has taken 7 pounds off of me in 9 days.

A few things I want to mention:
1) I am releasing this plan through Swim Bike Mom because it works. Period.  I would not release something to you if I did not believe in it. I am approached several times a day to “pimp” products. vitamin waters, triathlon DVDs, vitamins, protein powder, coaching services. I only promote what I believe in.  You see how I rarely do “giveaways” and sponsored posts… I won’t do that stuff for just kickbacks. It’s not worth telling you guys “I love coconut water,” just to make $25. I value my SBMs and friends waaaaay too much. So, I would NOT release this if I did not believe in it.

2) Ilana is willing to release her valuable info for such a great price – I could not refuse. It’s a huge value. Three weeks of fool-proof meals for $12? We spend that at the pub for a beer and onion rings. Seriously.

This is the kind of food. Veggies, quinoa, chicken.

3) This plan requires NO thinking. And virtually no cooking – so it’s perfect for a busy mom or dad. You just buy the groceries in the plan and you eat them.  You do not cook anything except some protein for the week (grill chicken, fish and boil eggs), which you can do all at once on Sunday and Ziploc in the fridge until needed; and

4) The proof is in my BUTT PUDDING. Butt pudding? Butt pudding? What?  Well, my butt has less… jiggles on it. Less pudding. Already. Butt pudding. Less of it.  It’s nice. And finally…

5) I mean business.

This is a simple, three week meal plan with grocery lists. You will eat small meals. Follow the plan exactly, and you will see results.  ***THERE IS A GLUTEN FREE OPTION TOO!*** Ilana also has gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options for specific needs – contact her directly:

And by saying, “I mean business,” I want you guys to get on board with me… so many of you don’t know where to start with nutrition (ah-hem, I certainly didn’t), and this is an amazing start.  You see results quickly, but not by starving… rather, by revving up your metabolism. You’ll see.

Day Nine: Ironman Coeur d’Alene Training Begins. With SEVEN pounds less butt pudding. Yes.

No gimmicks. Just whole foods, eaten smartly and in ways to fuel your body and prepare it for clean, fat-burning eating. This is not a binge–it’s a way of eating, a plan for starting, and hopefully, a change (for me) for life.

[Proof is in my butt pudding, remember?]
