The "You Can Drop It” author and dietician, who has lost 100 pounds, explains she was a "volume eater" and she loved eating "lots and lots of food" and says she was always gravitating toward sugar and carbs. When her weight gain began to affect her health, she decided to reverse the cycle of her eating habits and created "The More? Sure!' model. This approach to eating includes:
- Start each meal by drinking a large amount of water before you begin eating
- Your first bite of food should vegetables and she suggests filing upon them, noting they are low in calories and can be high in fiber
- Next, move on to protein, which will also help to keep you full
- Lastly, the final type of food to eat would be anything sweet or high in carbs
She explains if you are still hungry, you can have more, but to start with her model again, making sure to drink more water, have veggies, and proteins before having a second serving of dessert.
When it comes to drinking water, Ilana suggests 16 ounces of water 30 minutes before your meal. As for your total water consumption per day, she suggests drinking half your body weight in ounces of water. So if you weigh 180 pounds, you should be drinking at least 90 ounces of water daily.
"More water, more weight loss," She tells The Doctors, noting you should also enjoy as many low-starchy vegetables as you want throughout the day and suggest eating plenty of cauliflower, squash, zucchini, and salad.
The weight-loss expert also suggests avoiding the idea of a "cheat day," explaining this can be linked to feeling guilt about what you eat, and instead she suggests thinking about something as a "treat" and to only enjoy after following the "The More? Sure!' model.
