Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid: A sample menu - MayoClinic.com...The Mayo Clinic Diet is designed to create a deficit of 500 calories a day which results in a pound of weight loss per week. Even if you eat the extra 500 calories you will not gain the weight back and will continue to make progress as long as you are consistent for most days.
The "REAL" Mayo Clinic Diet (also aka grapefruit diet) Plan- lose up to 20 pounds in two weeks (source via ask.com) http://fc95d419f4478b3b6e5f-3f71d0fe2b653c4f00f32175760e96e7.r87.cf1.rackcdn.com/8E758FD9A49C4455946992D64762CA1D.pdf
Healthy ingredient substitutions - Pinner says a great list!! I agree; I'm not diabetic but have family history of it. Over the last 6 months, I've been watching my carbs, fat, etc. and gradually ditched 14 lbs - the right way, no crash, gradual changes (some indulgences along the way). Watching family, I've found diabetic diet very similar to what I've read about Weight Watchers. Logical.
