Mr. EET found this fun Portland Barbecue Cart Leroy’s Familiar Vittles to be an excellent treat meal (followed by a DQ Blizzard of course :-). Probably not Monica’s cup of tea, but with EET, she’ll find plenty of other options!
NOTE: Long Blog Post — could change an EETers life though, so it’s worth it. Monica’s actual diaries are below so scroll right down to review them asap if you must, BUT–Mr. EET doesn’t write things that won’t help so I hope you read the whole thing!
Did you really think you could learn a plan that allows you to
eat any food you want EVERY DAY
by reading a quick summary, or watching a short video on EET’s Website? Or even after an hour long consultation to set up your “custom” EET plan?
Think about it this way:
Could you learn a foreign language reading a website a couple of times? Watching a video or two?
Doubtful—you need weeks and weeks of practice just to get the basics, and to master it can take a lot longer than that.
Once you become skilled at a foreign language — YOU’VE GOT IT! You can then “rep” it and it can become 2nd nature and you no longer have to struggle with using it at all times.
THAT’S HOW LEARNING EET IS DESIGNED AND WHAT EET IS ALL ABOUT!
And now, thanks to new EETer Monica, EET’s readers can get a “Behind the Scenes” look at how to REALLY LEARN EET.
SUBMITTING FORECASTS AND DAILY DIARIES IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN EET.
EET knows almost no one is going to master EET by reading the guide booklet, or watching EET’s member’s videos. Don’t get me wrong they are helpful, but the only proven way is to send your personal forecasts and daily diaries to EET for comment.
Once again, which way will you learn to play tennis faster? Read about it and watch videos or take regular private lessons by an experienced coach?

—They will respond directly to you. Noel lost 35 pounds this way so far (his goal was to lose 20) and Vicki lost her last 10+ in about 6 weeks eating more than ever.
These two EET superstars LEARNED EET, and now they’ve got it — FOREVER.
NOW IT’S MONICA’S TURN
New EETer Monica was kind enough to agree to share a couple of her actual diary entries so you can see how this “back and forth” with EET actually works. Here’s her first impressions on it
Daily communication has made all the difference in getting my EET plan off the ground. At first I was agonizing over the ‘perfect’ forecast, even though Mr. EET kept telling me to only spend 15 minutes on it, and that life isn’t perfect, let’s make it fun and sustainable!!
Now that I’ve been checking in daily, emailing a quick food diary, I’m actually spending LESS time planning and more time doing and EETing!! Jon’s feedback, little tweaks, encouragement really got me on my way, it’s starting to click. So I encourage you to give it a try… he’s quite inspirational, and fun, our Mr. EET!! 🙂 Be well my EET friends!
And here are a couple of actual diaries with comments:
See comments in GREEN below—this is a great EETing day–key is how YOU feel about it–too early to know, you’ll have to do this as part of a forecast for a couple of weeks and then you can assess how sustainable and effective (through weight lost) your EET plan is — but it’s a GREAT GREAT starting point:
GREEN TEA TIL 11:00
ACTIVITY: KIDS @ HOME, LAUNDRY, GROCERY SHOP
11:00 SLICE OF ROASTED TURKEY BREAST AT GROCERY STORE
VISIT MOM AT HOSPITAL
1:30 PM LUNCH
SANDWICH – WHOLE MULTIGRAIN BREAD, ROASTED TURKEY BREAST, ARUGULA, TOMATO, NO CARB NO SUGAR DILL PICKLE RELISH, MUSTARD, LITTLE LIGHT MAYO, 2% KRAFT SINGLE CHEESE PLUS SMALL HANDFUL FRITOS, ONE TWIX BAR, WATER, PSYLLIUM HUSK CAPSULE (500 MG)
(BREAD – PER SLICE – CALORIES 110, FAT 1G, CARB 22G, FIBER 4G, PROTEIN 3G)
IS THIS A GOOD BREAD FOR LUNCH SANDWICH OR SHOULD I LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE??
FIBER CAPSULE – BLONDE PSYLLIUM (SEED HUSKS) 500MG (BOTTLE SAYS EACH HAS 2 CALORIES, .5G CARB)
DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO SUPPL FIBER AS AN OPTION FOR SOY NUTS OR LOW CARB TORTILLAS??
4PM – GREEN TEA (NO MIDDAY MEAL)
5:15 – 20 MIN INTERVAL – MINI TRAMP
ROAST CHICKEN, ARUGULA CELERY PEPPERS TOMATO SALAD WITH BALSALMIC VINEGARETTE, COUPLE SHAVINGS OF PARMESIAN, 2 GLASS OF RED WINE
2 glasses wine is pushing it this early but have what you NEED to make it sustainable — maybe phase down to 1 1/2 glasses next week or something like that.
DECAF GREEN TEA AT BEDTIME
(NO EMERG SNACK)
IN BED BY 10:30PM
don’t push TOO hard–it’s good to get a running start on EET but we have a LONG time to be on this plan if it’s gonna be a true success, so be sure you don’t let yourself get run down, sore or ESPECIALLY injured–that’s against EET’s first rule of exercise. Just get used to the timing of things–that’s challenging enough
Today was even better choices than yesterday, which was darn good — the key as always is to be very aware of how you’re feeling and what parts of your day you are not feeling are sustainable — I still contend it’s too early to tell because your body and your cravings can adapt to different timing than you’re use to–but over the next couple of weeks it should become clear what parts of EET really work for you and what needs to be modified–and I’ll help you find the modifications that will make your plan fun but still produce weight loss. Just keep sending diaries and you’ll see!
see the rest of my comments below:
GREEN TEA TIL 10:15
9:30 WORKOUT: STRENTH SET AND TABATA
Be sure to count your steps on your tabata so we can know how you’re doing and maybe in a week or two try to add a step or two improvement–you should NOT be going full speed at this time–but rather at a pace you can easily handle so your body can adapt
10:15 SLICE OF ROASTED TURKEY BREAST, 6 BLUEBERRIES, 2 BIG STRAWBERRIES, 5 RASPBERRIES, 1 CUTIE CLEMENTINE
WORK AT HOME
11 PM LUNCH
EET SANDWICH – SMALL MULTI GRAIN MISSION TORTILLA (110 CAL, 17 CARB, 4 G FIBER – HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO FIND LA TORTILLA BRAND IN TEXAS STORES YET), LEFTOVER ROASTED CHICKEN BREAST, SPINACH, RED PEPPER, NO CARB NO SUGAR DILL PICKLE RELISH, MUSTARD, ½ A SLICE 2% KRAFT SINGLE CHEESE, DRIZZLE ITALIAN DRESSING, HOT SAUCE… PLUS SMALL HANDFUL SIMPLY NAKED PITA CHIPS, TABLESPOON HUMMOUS, WATER, PSYLLIUM HUSK CAPSULE (500 MG)
This is a great meal–BUT– was it GREAT for you? did it REALLY satisfy or what else do you need to really make this meal the TREAT it needs to be to allow EET’s deal to really work for you?
ACTIVITY – HOSPITAL WITH KIDS TO SEE MOM. PUSHED HER IN WHEELCHAIR AROUND HOSPITAL AND UP AND DOWN RAMPS
5:30 – SMALL BOWL OF NO/LOW (DOES HAVE VEG) CARB MEXICAN SOUP AND HALF A MISSION LOW CARB TORTILLA – TIRED AND HUNGRY
6:30 – 7:30 – ZUMBA CARDIO WORKOUT
BOWL HOMEMADE MEXICAN SOUP (SENT INGREDIENTS YESTERDAY), 2% CRAFT CHEESE SLICE MELTED IN WITH
ADDED GARNISH OF CHOPPED ONION, CILANTRO, LIME
LOW CARB TORTILLA
Again a fine dinner following the workout — be sure to let me know how your body recovers tomorrow as this was a big day of exercise and we want to be sure your eating is helping your body recover adequately — EET doesn’t recommend too many two workout days so keep that in mind. Since you are fired up do it whenever you feel fresh and can handle them–but again SUSTAINABILITY says twice a day should be reserved for big dinners, special occasions, vacation, travel, and other situations that call for ramping up your metabolism.

Monica is well on her way to permanent weight loss—but if she decides she’s “got it”, and stops sending diaries and asking questions and “working on her game” you can bet she will not do as well as those EETers who want all the help they can get and are either in or are heading for EET’s Metabolic Hall of Fame.
Hopefully Monica will keep sharing her progress with EET’s readers – and hopefully more new (and some old) EETers will get EET involved with their efforts the way EET was designed to work. If they do, they have an incredible opportunity to solve their weight loss issues permanently in a TRULY DIFFERENT, fun and sustainable way.
