I’m starting this Jump Start Diet now for the next two weeks and I’d like to invite you to come along with me.
It’s a very simple diet. Simple doesn’t always mean easy. But basically it’s using Weight & Inches Shakes. They’re 200 calories each. I drink 5 of them during the day so it’s about 1000 calories. They are a very good protein source and low carbohydrate.
I’m very sensitive to carbohydrates and so when I start drifting with my eating plan, especially during the holidays, and struggled over the last few months. And when I drifted, I ended up bouncing up. I have about 10-12 pounds I’d like to get rid of, so we’re going to do this “Jump Start Diet.” It’s 5 shakes a day. The concept is very simple. That doesn’t mean it’s easy to do. I understand that. Simple and easy are two different things. So it’s simple—you mix it with water and drink the shake 5 times a day. You’ve got everything that you need. You have protein, low carbohydrate, and vitamins and minerals. Literally, you could live off these. I don’t know if you’d want to, but you could. I still take my vitamins every day. One thing I do add is extra magnesium to prevent muscle fatigue and prevent constipation, especially if you’re on a higher protein diet.
I’m going to be doing this for the next two weeks. I’ll keep you updated. I’m just getting into this. I’ve been on it for about 24 hours. I’m anticipating that I’ll start getting those caffeine withdrawal symptoms, the carbohydrate withdrawal symptoms will show up over the next day or so. Hopefully the symptoms won’t be too bad. We’ll talk about it. Yes we’re going public with the whole thing. So I encourage you to join with this as well as make sure you monitor yourself by weighing yourself. When you lose the weight, post it on the website. That’s why we’ve got that weight loss tracker on there. So I’ll keep you updated in the very near future. I’d enjoy it if you would join me. Please comment and let us know what you’re thinking. We’ll talk soon. Take care.
The New Year is a great time for a fresh perspective and new start towards what you want to accomplish. My wife and I sit down every year (a great excuse for date night) and map out our personal, family and professional goals for the year. Prior to this “date”, we individually list what we plan to accomplish and then mesh them together (especially the family ones). Afterwards, we make sure to put it all in writing and we each post it so the goals remain top of mind. It is actually very inspiring and a lot of fun to do…and even more exciting as we meet throughout the year to monitor our progress and make sure we are staying on track.
But your 2014 goals won’t magically be met. Goals will only be achieved if you are willing to change your behavior. One of the things that will determine eventual success or failure in making your behavior change is your answer to these two questions:
Can I do it?
Is it worth it?
If you cannot answer “Yes” to both of those questions, your likelihood of success is…dare I say…doubtful. However, if you can answer “Yes” to both of these questions, there is no limit to what you will be able to accomplish. Stay focused, monitor your progress, take it one step at a time, ask for help when you need it, don’t be afraid to falter…then pick yourself right up again and most importantly…enjoy the journey along the way. It’s a new year! You can do it!

Dr. Clark designed his “Jump Start” program primarily to boost your weight loss before beginning a formal weight loss plan. It is a great way to start your weight loss efforts before experiencing other weight loss programs because it is healthy, quick and easy, convenient and motivating.
It is an all supplement diet that replaces all of your meals with 5 protein shakes each day. The shakes come in two flavors, chocolate and vanilla, and provide all the protein that you need to insure retention of lean body mass and fullness. If you need added variety, one of the daily shakes can be substituted for two Anytime Proti pre-mixed shakes and some protein enriched fruit drinks that we carry here at CFWLS.
This diet has very low total calories so it can also be used to help break through a plateau. It can also detoxify the body and act as an elimination diet to help sort out potential food allergies or intolerances.
The “Jump Start” diet is very convenient because the shakes are simply mixed with water and can be easily transported anywhere. It will take the guesswork out of meal planning and free up some time usually spent on meal preparation.
The diet is really manageable for most people because it lasts only 2 weeks and that time frame makes it so much easier for commitment. As you notice quick results you will be highly motivated to see it through.
Dr. Clark recommends that to get the most out of this plan you take a complete Multi-Vitamin, Essential Fatty Acids, Activated B-Complex and a Magnesium/Potassium supplement. If you tend to suffer from fatigue on a calorie restricted plan, you may also consider asking our staff about adding B-Complex injections.
Here at CFWLS we also recommend that you begin journaling your intake in our free mobile app (CFWLS in the App Store or Center for Weight Loss Success in Google Play), so that you can track your achievements. It is important to stay active and drink the required 8 cups of water or approved beverages, daily.
