Hi everyone!

The producers have asked that we create a message board for those using the 20/20 diet. We encourage everyone on this diet to post their progress stories, photos, goals, favorite recipes, or share support with others. The producers will be reading this message board so start posting!

Here's the link, it can also be found under the WEIGHT category on the main message boards page.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Gosh!  You have more willpower than I do.  I have "cheated" more than once.  I'm trying to make do with a handful of raisins, and it helps.  I do believe "sugar addiction" is a hard habit to kick!  Congrats to you as well. Phase 3 is relatively easy...

Congrats on your weight loss...that's awesome.  I am an addict when it comes to sweets.  I used to eat some kind of sugary something almost every day....often more than once per day.  One piece just makes me want more.  I know I'm not yet strong or "programmed" enough for the "sensible splurge" Dr. Phil talks about, so I have chosen to stay away from sweets completely for now.   I want to end my obsession with sugar!!  I'm almost at the end of Phase 3 and proud to say that I have not splurged, cheated, or strayed from the plan.  I almost feel that is a bigger accomplishment for me than the number on the scale.  I have never stuck to a diet for this long before now.  I'm not sure if Dr. Phil's words have helped me change my mindset or if it's the quality of the food I'm putting in my body, but it is working!  I'm going to weigh at end of P3 on 2/4 for the moment of truth.  😀

I'm 8 days into Phase 3 and continue to be so pleased with the results.  I'm down about 14 pounds in total, and have lost almost 4 inches around my waist!  Again, I understand results will not continue at this pace, but gosh!  I sure feel better already.  My knees aren't bothering me nearly so much, and that was the main reason I decided to try this.  It hasn't been too hard thus far.  My biggest issue is after the evening meal when I crave sweets.  Any suggestions??  Keep posting!
