I just finished day 5 of the Cinch diet, and I happily stepped on the scale this morning 6 pounds lighter! Woohoo!
Eating the same foods everyday on the 5 day diet made for easy meal planning, but I was yearning for variety! Here’s my updated Cinch diet “report card” after the 5-day diet:
- I was never hungry!
- Cinch promised to curb cravings, and so far, so good!
- Still missing my salt and sugar substitute, but maybe that’s why I’m not craving a giant piece of chocolate cake!
- I don’t think I’ll ever eat plain yogurt again!
Cinch core, a 25 day plan that consists of 4 meals a day plus 1 small piece of dark chocolate! Any diet with chocolate gets an A+ from me!
The Cinch Diet allows me to pick the food I like from their list (what a relief!), and when it comes to meal planning, every meal must have a lean protein, produce, fiber and a healthy fat. This is going to be a huge change for me because I’ve been in the low-carb, low-fat mode for way too long. My previous New Year’s diets have always steered away from carbs and fat, and relied heavily on packaged foods, but Cinch says bring on real foods like olives, guacamole, nuts, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, and don’t forget the dark chocolate!
I’m looking forward to this new (and healthy) method of eating, and I’m delighted that my 3 teenage children have really taken an interest in the program. As my son said,”I’m not trying to lose weight, I just need to start eating better.” Not bad coming from a 15 year old teenage boy that loves his junk food!
So, what’s for dinner at our house? We’re trying the Cinch recipe for Black Bean Tacos with Cilantro-Jalapeno Guacamole – sounds yummy!
