So I have been doing this for about a month now. I am down 8 pounds. I am happy with this due to the fact I didn't have to exclude any type of food from my life. It seems with all the other diets there's always some food that is restricted. I was really hoping for more of a weight-loss with this than 8 pounds. But I really can't complain because I ate what I wanted and I lost weight. So there you go. I will keep doing this and see where I am in another month.
