Just today I finished reading Let’s Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson. It’s been so long since I received the book that I forgot I didn’t actually finish it and do the review. (Shame on me!) When I picked it up for the second time I remember how I felt when I first saw it: Intrigue and interest.
Wilson didn’t disappoint me. He starts with a touching dedication to the brother he loss, explains cautions before starting this program and explains exactly what the plan is. By the time I was finished reading the book, I was sold. In my opinion, Let’s Do Lunch: Eating calories and carbs you want to lose weight! is a (semi) easy-to-follow and doable plan.
The author, who at one point weighed 425 pounds and had a 5-foot waist, had experimented with different foods and eating plans until he found a fun way of losing weight easily. A plan that is the complete opposite of most diets: With his plan he lost 230 pounds and 24 inches from his waist. His success is evident by the years he’s maintained this loss.
Wilson maintains that his plan is not what you think it is. He says you’ll get to eat all the foods you love whenever you are hungry and eat until you are full. There is no exercise required, no pills to take, nothing to count, no math skills needed and no meetings to attend. Sounds unbelievable, right? According to Wilson, “… because Let’s Do Lunch foods stabilize your blood sugar, your body forces you to become less and less hungry with each passing day.”
As I read the book I became more and more convinced. His suggestions make sense and it’s the way he puts the plan together that’s different. One of the best parts about the plan is he has an answer and solution for every concern or pitfall you may encounter. The best part for me is that I get to eat tons of fruit, which I love, until I can’t eat anymore. The worse part about it is minimizing breads, biscuits, waffles, pancakes, nuts, chocolate, muffins… which I also sigh. The good part is that eventually my craving for those types of things will abate.
To get started, Wilson has included a shopping list, recipes, suggestions, testimonials, questions & answers, and a 14-day meal guide for those who need more specifics, among other things. There is also information on how to access LetsDoLunch.com’s message boards to interact with others who are using the same plan.
I’m actually going to test this plan out for myself… I’ll post my success (yes, thinking positively) here in about four weeks. If you’ve read this book or started the plan, share your experience with us here in the comments.
