The goal of Dillard DietTM is not to make you thin or skinny, the goal is to make you healthy.
If you follow the program you should achieve a healthier, thinner, more toned physique. When you graduate from the program you should have a metabolism that will naturally require additional calories per day to support your newly acquired muscle mass. The program does not support bulking of muscle, rather it’s purpose is to tone muscle and burn body fat creating a healthier you. As you go through the weeks in the program you should pay attention to the inches you lose not the pounds. Pay attention to your waist and your behind, as your pants become too big for you, you will know you are on track in the program.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
Ladies be prepared to have one week a month where your weight loss will slow due to fluid retention from hormonal changes. Don’t despair, the next week the fluid will be gone and additional weight loss should be noted. Your menstruation may come early or post menopausal women may spot and hair loss can sometimes be noted. These are findings associated with large fat loss.
Actual weight loss will eventually slow for everyone as eventually you will have less fat to burn and you will be toning muscle. In this stage pay attention to your clothing sizes as you will still be losing inches and you will still be achieving your goal of a healthier more attractive physique.
Lack of energy, feeling easily fatigued, light-headedness or headache. This is typically the result of you being too heavily into ketosis. Should this occur, it is corrected by eating fruit products from the list in your packet.
At any stage of the diet, should this occur, you should add two additional servings of fruit per day.
Constipation. Drink the recommended amount of water each day. If this is still a problem an over the counter stool softener like Colace twice a day may help. If not, use Dulcolax, Ex-Lax, or Correctol to achieve the necessary results. The addition of natural fiber such as ½ a mango, sweet potato, or legumes as part of your intake may also help. A cup of hot water with juice of 1 lemon in the morning may also be helpful. Avoid liquid laxatives.
Nausea or queasiness. Drink a large glass of water with your products and eat three times per day at least. Skipping meals will slow metabolism and subsequently will slow weight loss. Grazing will help with nausea or queasiness between meals.
