The Plan: Week 2
You’ve done beautifully! You’ve no doubt dropped a few pounds already, and that will continue for a while, even if you only continue following the Week 1 protocol. Eventually the weight loss will begin to level out and you’ll have to up your game a little more. But I think the way you are already starting to feel tells you that the pounds are just a symptom of something bigger—a food-borne illness.

When we give it proper nutrition, I’m convinced there’s almost nothing our bodies can’t heal.
During Week 2, you will up your game, heal even more, and lose many more pounds. Here are my second round of suggestions, challenges, and a few tips that might be fun to try.
