The DrM diet plan : Dinner
Ok, this is THE most important step, and perhaps the hardest one. For dinner, get a tall glass fill up to a 1/4 or 1/3 with bran, fill it up with non-fat milk. Heat it up twice in the microwave for 55 seconds each time with a 2 minute interval in between. If you want you can add a teaspoon of honey once its nice and hot. That's it. Thats your dinner.
Wait a minute....thats it?! Yep, the idea is to keep dinner as the lightest meal of the day, this is why you were given some liberties with lunch. All Bran is an excellent source of fiber, it not only occupies space in your stomach, it suppresses appetite and isnt digested. Its real function is to add bulk to stool, thereby slashing the risk of developing colon cancer, and yes, it aids greatly in reducing weight. Its better then Metamucil, and a lot cheaper, costing only $4 for a box which should last you a good 2 weeks.
So now you're thinking...I'm not having a glass of milk with some bran in it for dinner! No way!
Granted, this is not easy. But think about this, you're not taking any pills, whacky shakes, or gambling with shoddy fad diets. You're merely rearranging your eating habits with an extra light dinner. It should be done on a daily basis, but we all have our shortcomings, so you can occasionally cheat. Keep in mind, weight gain is a gradual process, and healthy weight loss should be gradual as well. Why am I so sure this works? Because I tried it on myself first and lost 40 lbs in a 6 month period. Infact, I didnt even notice it in the beginning until friends and family took note. Everybody who tried it lost weight. Here are the benefits :
Better sleep quality
Higher energy levels, less fatique
Decreased chances of diabetes/better management of diabetes
Decreased risk of heart disease and colon cancer
Ofcourse any healthy weight loss should be accompanyied by physical activity. Treadmills are expensive, but they are an excellent investment. Stay at home, walk while you watch TV and break a sweat. Its really about self discipline. I hope this information proves usefull, and I look forward to hearing from those who try this plan, and benefit from it, inshallah.
