What if I want to change the diet

What if I change the food diary to use the same or less calories on a daily basis. Is this ok ? Or are the actual ingredients part of losing weight ?

As far as calories go you dont want to mess with that to much that is key to weight-loss.  As far as the actual diet goes if you are using the basics.  if you are wanting to change it up a bit that should be ok  as long as you stick to lots of veggies, lean protein in prescribed amounts, fruits like berries, whole grains etc. and remain in right calorie count you should be ok.

I agree with the above response. I have also become somewhat bored with this diet plan... But I also know that this plan considers your metabolism rate... Which will translate to how you feel with the foods you eat.. I know it can feel horrible to eat the wrong amount of meat, or carbohydrates... That said; what if you took the core protien, grain or carb, and fruit and kept the same amount and then created your own meal. So pork, rice and apricots would still be just that, but it might come out differently? And yes.... Specific foods do matter... And the seriously successful people here ( and in any diet regime really) are the ones who measure, weigh, and really do thing exact.... Like a surgeon.

I've been successful on this program (72-pound weight loss in less than a year) without following the meal plan.  My reason?  I don't like to cook very much, and there are too many somewhat expensive things to buy each week.  That said, I did log my foods every single day and do my circuits regularly (with some modifications at first).  I eliminated all processed foods, added more fruits and veggies, and made very simple meals at dinner.  I've been having pretty much the same breakfast every day (greek yogurt, fruit, walnuts), and microwave a lot (e.g., chicken or fish).  The keys to success are consistency and logging EVERYTHING (even when you go off track).  And really, really pay attention to water consumption too.

I think I need more protein than with the slow oxidizer diet. I am insulin resistant or type 11diabetes. What do I do? I need to control carbs. Thanks, C. ELLER

Thank you for your post I was really worried my family of 6 wouldn't like most of the food on the menu making it harder on me to diet.
