Diet has been perfect so far over the 2.5 days since the Diet Depletion started.
Lunch today was, quite possibly, the best omelet I've ever cooked. It was my famous "Ballantyne" omelet (although I didn't have any mushrooms). In this omelet, we use avocado in place of cheese, along with double spinach, and four whipped up eggs. It's cooked in coconut oil.
That's it. So simple.
When you know what to eat and you have social support, accountability, a deadline, and motivation, it's quite easy to succeed.
#1 motivational tool - Believing in yourself. If you believe it, you can achieve it. If you believe in yourself, this time it will be different. This time you WILL succeed. This time you are in control and will make BIG changes. Keep on pushing. And never give up on what is important to you. I believe in YOU.

The best fat loss book in the world is useless without implementation. Just start with 5 minutes if you don’t have motivation. All the planning in the world is no good if you don’t follow through. Be a robotic action-taker. Get it done!
