Mayo Clinic Diet

Posted by @tilly in Just Want to Talk, Jul 10, 2011

I'm using the Mayo Clinic Diet to lose weight. I bought the book and the journal, and I'm excited about finding this diet program. Is anyone else using this particular weight-loss method? How's it going? What do you think of the "5 Habits" approach?

Working on 2 habits: "Move" and "Move more." These are my least favorites! So today I "moved" on my treadmill for 30 minutes, and "moved more" by going for another 8 minutes. I'm trying to appreciate the fact that I'm doing it -- not brooding about it -- doing it!

Interesting factoid: Alcohol is counted under sugar calories" on this plan. For the first time ever, considering lite beer.

Well, back on the diet after a wonderful vacation that included too many calories! Working out 45 minutes a day, though -- exercise is getting easier.

On Saturday, I ran in my first 2 mile event here in my hometown. Okay, "run" isn't accurate -- I walked, but I huffed & puffed just like I was running! It was hard. I did it! Yay, me!!

what does the diet consist of?

No "forbidden" foods or secret formulas. It's based on the Mayo Clinic's food pyramid. You're supposed to eat more fruits and vegetables (from the bottom of the pyramid) and fewer fats and sugars (from the top). There's a nice page on Facebook that explains it really well.

i do good one day, poor the next - the problem for me is I need to be consistent.

Yes, it's a one-day-at-a-time challenge. I joined Weight Watchers last week. I appreciate all the good information from the Mayo diet plan, but I found I needeed more accountability in the form of a group meeting.
