I just weighed myself and I am 140 pounds.
This means, after 3 weeks of vacation and being completely off my diet, I only gained one pound. And I ate a lot — dessert almost every night!
I think that’s pretty awesome!
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s my original post about The Four Body.

This Week’s Meal Plan on the Four Hour Body
Some of you who are also doing the Four Hour Body diet have asked for a sample meal plan.
I’ll tell you what I’m making this week:
Tonight: Roast Chicken with Roasted Brussel Sprouts. I may also make a green salad.
Thursday: Ceviche with extra guacamole. I might also make some refried beans. (I’ll make some tortilla chips fried in expeller pressed coconut oil for my daughter)
Friday: Grass-Fed Pot Roast with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Lacto-Fermented Sauerkraut (and for my daughter, corn on the cob).
Saturday: Almond Flour Chicken Nuggets (fried in expeller-pressed coconut oil) with Steamed Broccoli
Sunday: Binge Day! I’m going to eat olive oil potato chips (which I bought at Trader Joe’s), pain au chocolat, and I’m going to dinner at Animal Restaurant (read my review).
Monday: Pesto Shrimp (with brown rice spaghetti for my daughter)
I drink white wine (organic sauvignon blanc from Trader Joe’s) every night with dinner.
I drink Gerolsteiner mineral water during the day, or Soothin’ Infusion iced tea. It’s caffeine-free and sweetened with green leaf stevia.
Breakfast is always the same — 1 or 2 eggs fried sunny-side up or scrambled in butter. Plus a cup of decaffeinated black coffee with stevia.
Lunch is really basic, too — one of the following: cottage cheese, salami, leftover meat, tunafish with mayo, liverwurst. Sometimes I’ll have a few nuts or a scoop of soaked nut butter. I need to make some more of my nut/seed crackers. They are a great vehicle for liverwurst!
I’m also trying David Lebovitz’s recipe for homemade cottage cheese today. I have been buying cottage cheese, since it’s the only dairy product allowed on the Four Hour Body. But I don’t like the fact that it is not organic, and definitely not grass-fed. If this batch of cottage cheese comes out, I will have homemade raw milk cottage cheese. I can hardly wait!
Also, I’ve been cheating a bit and eating chocolate at night. I know, bad!!! I’m going to make some coconut milk chocolate pudding and coconut milk chocolate ice cream made with stevia so I can still cheat but not feel guilty.
