  1. This was such a helpful list for me! Thank you so much!

    1. If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time.

      The best food for good health to maintain the system of your body I really engaged for.

  2. Thanks for this - great ideas! My phase 1 meals have gotten a little blah, so I needed this!

  3. I just started the maker's diet today. I made your grain free blueberry muffins and they are awesome. My daughter says they taste like something you would buy at Starbucks. Thank you for sharing. I was worried I'd be eating eggs every day (I like eggs but not that much).

  4. Thanks for sharing! I am starting this diet with my husband this Friday to lose weight and get healthy!

  5. I have done the makers diet before and loved it, however I never really meal planned and of course fell back into my bad eating habits. This time with the good Lord's help, I will do it right this time. So thank you so much for these wonderful ideas! I feel like I'm off to a good start now and cant wait to begin my new healthy lifestyle!

  6. I am going to be starting the makers diet soon and want to thank you in advance for your blog. I love that you have created a menu list with a variety of options. It's May7, 2014 and I wonder if you are still following the makers diet ~ lifestyle :0) Lady Valiant

  7. can I ask - how many servings can you have? How many eggs, etc? It doesn't really explain the portions?
