I just couldn’t handle the weight gain that comes with Matt’s plan. I never made it to the promised end goal of being able to eat tons of food and be thin. I don’t know if I’m missing out. It didn’t matter to me if the pancakes were homemade or not. Highly tasty foods like that make me want to eat more than I’m hungry for. I try to eat just one ingredient foods like Ari recommends. Like baked sweet potato with salmon, veggies, baked beet with some coconut or olive oil. Or breakfast could be yogurt, whey protein powder, berries, banana. Ari sais to eat when hungry. I eat when hungry until comfortably full. About 3x per day- simple old school. And I will have a snack if I’m really hungry. But I try to eat well at meals so I don’t need to.
Maybe I’m vain but after doing Matt’s plan for 1 month, I had gained 20 lbs over my healthy medium size frame and was still gaining and I had to by large floppy tops and wear stretchy pants. I don’t want to diet and haven’t for a couple of years before Matt. But I also don’t want to push my luck by going against every logic and risk a lot more weight gain. It took muuuuch longer to lose the weight the healthy whole foods way, than it did gaining it on Matt’s plan. It’s been 3 months now and I still have 5 lbs to go. But then I’m eating well and not really dieting. And I feel much better. I got all kinds of pains and rashes? on eating processed foods and that includes homemade, sorry.
I hope you find what works for you!
