Sure Win Diet Plan

My friend told me this is a sure win diet plan that's bound to achieve your weight goal in 3 months.

Never hurt to try.


Diet Tips
==============

My diet program consist of 3 phases. Phase 1 encourages snacking because it stabilizes blood sugar, which minimizes cravings and ultimately helps you manage your weight. If you're accustomed to snacking on chips and pretzels, you probably like some crunch when you munch. Since those snacks may send your blood sugar soaring, it's better to select a nutrient-dense, fiber-rich snack. Nuts are a delicious and obvious go-to choice, but they're not your only crunchy snack option! Here are some other healthy, Phase-specific nibbles to add to your snacking repertoire:

Phase 1 ( 2weeks )
Raw veggies, including celery, green and red peppers, cauliflower, and broccoli florets
Dill pickles (seek out the no-sugar-added variety and limit your consumption if you're watching sodium intake)
Edamame (boiled soybeans — sold by the bag in the frozen foods section of most supermarkets)
Sunflower seeds (count these toward your daily nut/seed allowance)
Soy nuts


Phases 2 and 3: Everything above PLUS the below...:)

Carrot sticks
Whole-wheat crackers
High-fiber, low-sugar, whole-grain cereal
Air-popped or microwavable popcorn (check the label to be sure it doesn't contain trans fats)
Frozen grapes
Apple slices with artificially sweetened, nonfat or low-fat yogurt dip
Toasted whole-wheat pita bread, sliced into triangles, with hummus

Hmmm.. Does this mean that the phase 1-3 is for the entire 3 months?
