I tried these recipes for the first time over ten years ago. The great thing about this anti-inflammatory diet is that you never feel like you are on a diet. The meals are so delicious, even when I don't stick to this plan I will still cook recipes from this book because they are that good. You will see significant results after 14 days but you will start feeling the mental and physical effects after just three days. Give this eating plan three days and you won't be able to stop! Charlie also loves all of the food so there's no need to make separate dinners for your kids. I'll add each day onto this post after I complete the day for a total of 7 days. I also will add a line item on the end of each day that goes over what else I ate because I'm breastfeeding and need the extra calories. As always DRINK TONS OF WATER. If you would like to purchase the book you can find it, HERE.
