3 hour diet

Who is up for the 3-hour diet? I did it a few years back and loved it. Problem? My book is in storage. However, I remember the key pieces - and can find some information online.

as quoted from's rendition of the 3-hour diet, the key pieces are:
  • Eat breakfast within one hour of rising
  • Eat every three hours thereafter
  • Stop eating three hours before bedtime
 as with any diet, portions are key as well.
  • "Start with the image of a 9-inch plate. On this plate you'll "see" four items:
  • A Rubik's cube, representing your carbohydrate portion at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • A deck of playing cards, symbolizing your protein serving at each meal; this is approximately 3 ounces, and Cruise says it can be anything you like -- from chicken to cheese, eggs, and fish.
  • A water bottle cap represents the amount of fat on your plate -- a little more than one teaspoon. This can be salad dressing, butter, olive oil -- any fat you favor.
  • Visually stack three DVD cases; this represents how much fruit or vegetables to eat at each meal."

so this would consist of:
eating breakfast everyday - within one hour of waking.
eating a 100 calorie snack 3 hours later.
eating lunch 3 hours after that.
eating a 100 calorie snack 3 hours later.
eating dinner 3 hours after that.
eating a 50 calorie dessert shortly after dinner - and at least 3 hours before bedtime.
the reason i bring this up is because i snack a lot, and have been eating out a lot since our rental kitchen is small and... well no excuses really. i need to grocery shop so that i eat healthier. let me know if you are in. we can keep each other motivated. :o)

New proposal: Every month we will add on something new to the previous months criteria.

January: No soda (diet is okay... although probably not applicable for us)
February: + No sugared drinks (Gatorade, Lemonade, etc.)
March: + No candy
April: + No cake, brownies, etc.
May: + No ice cream
June: + (other ideas or add-ons?)

Let me know what you think.. we'll start slowly with January being no pop!

Sweets for the day or HOUR

Okay, I wish we could do 24 hour cheat days. I got together with my old friend Lynn from Arizona tonight with her hubby and we went and got gelato! Too bad my cheat day for the week started at 7:30pm and ended at 9. Lame. But there you have it. My cheat day is over with.

Oh and Kate- email me so that I can 'invite' you to be a contributer on this blog so you can post about your sweets and whatever.

Peace yo.

EDIT: I changed my title from 'First Cheat Day' because sweet Tim thought that sounded bad. ;o)

Bet is on... September 2nd

1 cheat day a week
Day = Saturday, Wednesday, etc... not a 24 hour period!
And this only applies to your local time zone! :o)
The winner will receive something from each loser. That could be a shirt, a gift card, a piece of paper... well I don't know if any of us would be happy with a piece of paper... but you know what I mean? Just give something YOU would have wanted to receive if YOU had won!

NOT Allowed:
No soda!
No ice cream, gelato, frozen custard, sherbet... you know!
No desserts!
No candy!

**Please comment if you are in on this bet by Sunday, August 31st so that we all know who our competition is!!!**
