•Why did you initially choose this diet? I chose this diet because it was recommended by a close friend of mines, who was also having trouble with his weight. I told me that the meals provided in the diet were really delicious and he was seeing an improvement. So I decided to give it a try.
•What is the basic premise of this diet/eating plan?
The premise of the diet was to help me lose weight with entrees and snacks that contained not so much calories.
•What were two positive aspects of the diet? The positive aspects of the diet were that the food, which was sold as frozen entrees in supermarkets, was in fact amazing.
•Were there any downsides to the diet plan? Explain.
•Did you have success on this diet? I saw moderate success. It didn’t help me lose as much weight as I desired (I wanted to lose 50 pounds or more) but at least I shedded off a couple of pounds.
•Are you still on the diet plan? I am not on the diet pan as of now.
•Have you maintained your weight loss? Yes I have. I used to weigh 190 pounds and I’m at 173.
•Do you feel the diet is safe? Why or why not? The diet is pretty safe because the caloric intake values are pretty decent and the meals are cost efficient.
•Did you exercise while on the diet? I exercised here and there. I would go running a few times as well as bicycling.
•Would you follow this diet plan again? Maybe, in the near future.
Tell us what you think about the diet used by your interviewee. Explain your thoughts in a reflection paragraph. Compare the diet plan used by the interviewee with the Long Haul Approach that was explained earlier in the course. Which plan would you determine to be better? Please explain your choice. I think the diet was okay because she was able to purchase the meals for a low price instead of those other expensive diets. The Long Haul Approach would be a better diet since she didn’t exercise daily while on it. I believe that’s the reason why she didn’t lose as much weight she wanted to in the first place. The Long Haul Approach would’ve been a much more effective diet for her.
