5. At least 2 meals a day there needs to be vegetables on the plate, 1 meal better include fruit.
6. Here’s how you’re getting your protein, Nuts, Beans, Fish, turkey & chicken.

7. First 2 weeks write everything down and post it here for accountability. Everyday. Do it.
WRITE IT DOWN!
WRITE IT DOWN!
"OH, BUT TONY, THAT'S SO HARD, IT TAKES TIME, WHAT IF I FORGET A PEN? WHAT IF I'VE LOST MY PAD OF PAPER TO WRITE DOWN WHAT I'VE EATEN? DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE TO WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING IN MY SALAD? WHAT IF THERE'S AVOCADO, PEPPERS, MUSHROOMS, NUTS, IN DIFFERENT KINDS OF SALAD, DO I HAVE TO WRITE IT ALL DOWN?"
SHUT UP YOU WHINY LITTLE BI*****!
IF YOU WANT TO LIVE LARGE AND YOU WANT THIS MICROSCOPICALLY SHORT LIFE OF YOURS TO BE WORTH SHOWING UP FOR
THEN YOU'LL MAKE A PLAN.
“We have to take control of our lives. The one that is happening, not the pretend one. We have to take control of our eating. We have to stop the fantasy version and start believing in the real one. We have to stop pretending that things are going to get better because we just bought a new crystal, or our palm reading went well, or somebody else will do it for us, or if you just hope or pray it’ll get better on its own. Good grief! F you’re not happy it’s because of you! It’s just you. You and no one else. Not you husband, not your wife, not God, not your parents, not your work not the weather, none of it. It you and the information or lack there of, inside your brain. The more you know, the more you can do.” – Tony Horton
Somewhere afterwards he added for the last week "if has Eyes or feet" don't eat it.
