21 Pounds in 21 Days

HI..OK...I'm fat and I'm tired of being fat! I once did Atkins and had beautiful results! I lost 85 pounds in 6 months. I ate well, exercised, took my vitamins. I felt great! Then....I got pregnant. Completely unexpected and when I went to the Dr. they told me.... yup, you guessed it. NO Atkins. I had to eat at least 100 carbs a being an over achiever :D, I ate 1000's of carbs a day and put all my weight back on. :( I'm sure there are a lot of people with similar stories. SO, I've since spoken with my GP and asked, if I got back on Atkins would it work as well for me this time as it did the first time and he said yes. The problem is I am having the hardest time just getting back on Atkins. So I've come to this conclusion that I am so heavily addicted to carbs the only way to break the addiction is to do a detoxic diet. Admittedly I have been influenced by Robin Quivers from the Howard Stern show that just completed her 21 lbs in 21 days diet with great results. So I thought why seems logical to me, I can't control my cravings, I'm otherwise a healthy women, not breastfeeding, mental ready to get going with a bang, and needing a big bang to get going. Therefore, I've purchased the book and the accompanying kit. I plan to start July 9th. I want to post my experience and drum up some support for anyone else doing this program. Please post a comment or email me if you want to do this together! Strength in numbers!

Hello! I'm going to be on the detox diet as well, but I'm still reading the book. I didn't buy the accompanying kit though, do you know of any recipies for the shakes? I have so many questions about this diet!

Your fellow detoxer,

I found the kit on EBAY much cheaper than what it is selling for on the website. In the book on page 163 has a list of things to buy at the health food store and Green Drink and the Antiodant berry drink is there. Price it might be cheaper to order the kit? I ended up paying $135 for mine including shipping

Here's to both of you April and Chicky! I raise my glass (of water :-)) to you both. I'm going to watch and see how it goes for you. It sounds like a lot of preparation, but then that's probably good for the psyche, I guess? If I could lose 10 lbs in 10 days, to jump start me...
I'll check back after the 11th of July or so, to see how you're doing. I wish you the best.

Ok, I'll be checking back. I can't believe I caught Robin on Larry the other night! I had already decided to do my own semi-fast/cleanse for 3 weeks and that inspired me. I'll probably get the book, but I'm not into buying her products right now. I use what is probably a very similar product from Nature's Life called Super-Green Pro-96...both their soy and whey protein powder blends. I will also add a great product from vitacost called Greentastic. Plus flax, psyllium, etc etc. For bowel cleansing (I've no aversion to enemas or colonics)I've started using oxy-powder. FABULOUS!

I did a few very committed months of gentle but deep and painful cleansing after the new year and well into the spring. I made great progress but have gotten lazy lately and undisciplined, thus the resolve to DO IT CLEANLY for 22 days (my lucky number). So I'll be with you, and might use her program more fully once I get the book and burn out on doing it myself. There is so much good stuff online for free. I learned so much about lymphatic cleansing this year!! Lots over on curezone. Who knew how vital the lymphatic system is to everything else!

Good luck to us all,

I saw Robin on Larry too, and am very interested in this diet plan. Nothing has worked for me, and I'm discouraged and tired of wasting money. I don't have an increase in calories but continue to see a weight gain. Where will it all end? I admit that carbs are a problem, but lately I've been using Slim-Fast shakes and only lost one pound. I used to be thin, and I don't want to see my friends, as it's embarrassing. I read that obesity can be caused by stress, a low self-image, and an inability to manage one's own life. That's not the kind of impression I want to make on others. The doctor keeps telling me to diet and gave me a brochure suggesting meals, but if I ate all that, I'd be huge.

I'd like to lose 45-50 pounds and keep it off.

Thanks for the suggestion on looking for the kit on eBay. I won't have it by July 9, but will watch your progress and offer support. I hope it will be successful for everyone!

Hi, I just purchased the book today and am hoping to start on July 13th. I did not shell out the $200.00 for the kit though. Instead I did some research on the internet and was able to get ALL of the products in the kit from 2 websites (A1 and cost is less then $100.00!!! There are other sites where you can purchase the products, but these were the cheapest. Anyway, I can't wait to start and I've been psyching myself up mentally because I don't think that it will be easy! I can tell you right now that I do'nt plan on doing the enemas or the colonics. But I have read that you can still lose weight. I am a bit concerned about "bathroom issues". I have a full time time job ( as most people do!!) and im just concerned, will I be running every hour to the bathroom? I do plan on starting on a Friday so, hopefully by Monday I will be somewhat OK. Please let us know how that part of the detox goes for you!! Good Luck!! I can't wait to hear from you!!

Oh, also, FYI: I think that I had heard that the author (Dr. Roni) is going to be on The View on Monday July 9th

so, how's it going?

Hello Chicky, Great idea the post. My 17th day in Las Vegas, buffets every day, needless to say what I look like. Saw Robin Quivers on Larry King and was like "yeah that's what I should be doing". Actually I'm still on my last 2 weeks of another diet, but am back to the weight I was when I started the program. I was losing weight, but was hungry all the time, and here it doesn't look like that will be the case. Thank you for your post I know I'm not alone. I will start 7/24. Toodles.

Hi April, I haven't read the whole book just from chapter 7 on. I made my own list in Excel format and will ad questions and comments.
Did you start the detox already?

At 3:25 AM , Blogger Yen said...

Oh yes Chickycola thank you for the heads up to buy the kit on Ebay. I tried to buy it from the author's website, but for some reason payment did not go through. Everything happens for a reason. Then I saw your post, bought the kit on Ebay and no problem using PayPal so there must be sth wrong with the author's site.

At 3:27 AM , Blogger Yen said...

Question for anyone who knows: is the kit in ADDITION to what we need to buy on page 163?

At 3:29 AM , Blogger Yen said...

Renee you are right about the work, I was a little surprised how much "work" was involved. Oh well all that work might help me burn a couple of extra calories ;-)

Hi B, I tried every diet that exist. I'm technically at the end/ 3rd month of a diet which asked for a blood sample and then sent me my diet based on my blood result. Seemed that I'm carb intolerant. The first week I lost 5 lbs!!! but I must say I was dying of hunger. I'm currently traveling and with the buffets here am not doing well, but when I'm home. I make every effort to do the threadmill for 30 min first thing in the morning. Someone told me that you need to work out/ exercise on an empty stomach. Since there's no food to burn, you burn fat (thats what they say). Then I have an apple with fat free yogurt. If I'm really hungry I'll also have Nature's Valley Oat N Honey bar. I also drink hot water. And if I get hungry again before lunch I have another cup of hot water. For lunch I have romain lettuce with chicken, green apple and fat free mayo. 2 - 3 hours later I'll do the treadmill again for 30 min and then the same salad and hot water. Try it for a week and see if you lose weight. I do weigh myself every day. If I've lost I'm happy, If I'm at the same weight I think: "yeah at least I didn't gain". Remember also that muscle is heavier than fat so if you do work out and develop muscle you might start to weigh more. For me if I go up in weight (on the scale) it's a warning sign for me. I write what I eat (even the bad stuff) so I can always go back to see where I went wrong. I also try not to eat after 17:00. I believe Oprah says 19:00 ;-)

At 3:55 AM , Blogger Yen said...

Hi jeannine, I'm confused. Once we buy the kit what else do we have to buy? Do we also buy what's on page 163?
yeah I'm wondering about the enemas and colon cleansings too. Is there anything we can take for colon cleansing once we are home (from work) and safe to run to the bathroom if need be? Anyone?
