Orange County, CA.  January 24, 2010 – It’s the morning of day seven on the Orange County UltraLite (weight-loss) Program and I’m now down 8lbs – 166.5lbs.  This is the fifth day in ketosis, and I lost another .1% of body fat, down to 13.6%.  All of my excess water-weight is now off, so I will finally be losing real weight – that’s fat. (more on water weight loss)

Monday morning I will do another set of photos and measurements.  I am definitely planning on seeing some change.  Yes, it’s only been a week but eight pounds is pretty significant weight loss in that short period of time.  I guess we will see soon enough.

I have found that the Ultra Lite program is extremely easy to follow, and even easier, if you prepare for it.  At home we cut-up all our vegetables after we get home from grocery shopping.  The primary vegetables we keep cut are: brown, red and green onions; cilantro; mushrooms; Serrano and jalapeno peppers; leeks; celery; parsley; carrots; cabbage; broccoli and cauliflower.  After washing and cutting, we place the vegetables in separate Ziplock stackable containers.  The only produce that we leave whole is asparagus, Brussel sprouts, avocado, lettuce, spinach, tomato and garlic.   We do eat a lot of veggies!  By doing this, it not only saves time when weighing ingredients for a meal, it also makes it more likely that you will use multiple, health promoting, ingredients.

Here is a yummy salad I just made: four ounces of various meats, spinach, arugula, Napa cabbage, mushroom, avocado, Serrano peppers, EVOO, apple cider vinegar, and a dash of sea salt and cracked pepper.
