Kick-off Before you start off with COMPLETE d-eat, it’s important to take stock and set yourself clear goals. Because if you don’t know where you want to go, you’ll never get there. Determine your size & weight now Weigh and measure your body – ideally in the morning – before you start using COMPLETE d-eat, and enter the results on page 12. Measure your waist circumference directly above your navel; measure the circumference of your hips and thighs at their widest point. During the programme, weigh and measure yourself once a week, always on the same day at the same time. That way, not only will you see the results in the mirror after only a short time, but you’ll get them in black and white as well. Now you’ve taken the first step towards achieving your ideal weight.

Replacing two of your daily main meals as part of a low-calorie diet with this kind of meal replacement is proven to help with weight loss. Replacing one of your daily meals with this kind of meal replacement helps to maintain weight after weight loss. A meal replacement for weight control can only work as part of a low-calorie diet which necessarily also includes other foods. Adequate fluid intake (approx. 2–3 litres of caloriefree beverages per day), regular physical activity and a healthy lifestyle are important.

Goodbye, kilos! If you want to lose weight effectively, you should replace two of your main meals with COMPLETE d-eat every day. For maximum effect, drink 2–3 litres of caloriefree beverages and ensure that you get at least 30 minutes of movement daily. Continue with this phase until you have reached your desired weight.

Your friend forever

Congratulations! You’ve reached your feelgood weight! So that it stays that way, we’ve created d-eat Day. It’s a great way of maintaining your weight with ease over the long term. The principle is really simple: on one weekday of your choice, you replace 2 of your meals with COMPLETE d-eat, and eat one normal balanced meal. On the other 6 days, you can just eat as usual. 4

No yo-yoing You’ve almost made it! So what you now want to avoid is falling back into old habits, risking a yo-yo effect. During the stabilisation phase, you replace only one meal – ideally your evening meal – with COMPLETE d-eat, and eat two normal, balanced meals. Your weight will stabilise or drop a little more. Once your weight has remained stable over some time, stop replacing any of your meals with COMPLETE d-eat, and eat three balanced meals.

Snacking pitfalls A chocolate here, an orange juice there, and there are always some nuts lying around. If you don’t take a break from eating between meals, you won’t be able to lose weight. The reason for this is that every time you consume food that contains calories, insulin is produced, and this prevents fat burning. Only when your insulin levels are normal again can the fat melt away. So you should leave a gap of at least 4 hours between meals. And the longer the break, the better the results.

Good to know In order to achieve lasting results, it’s important to make a healthy lifestyle part of your daily life. The following tips and tricks will help you to change your life, step by step.

Half of the plate should consist of fruit and vegetables.

1/4 should be carbohydrates like potatoes, wholegrain noodles and brown rice.

1/4 should be proteins like chickpeas, lentils and soy beans.

The ideal time to eat a balanced meal During the weight loss phase, you will be eating one healthy, balanced meal per day. The 'Healthy Eating Plate' from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health shows what this main meal should look like. 6

goods, sweets, fast food and ready meals. Watch out for sugar and salt. Sugar, and sweetened foods and beverages are not recommended. Avoid these wherever possible and use sugar sparingly. When seasoning, be creative with herbs and spices, and cut down on the salt.

Active daily life. A balanced diet and physical activity go hand in hand. And it isn’t only regular sport that’s helpful – you should also cultivate an active lifestyle – by walking more often, say, climbing stairs, or cycling.

Tip: Sweetened foods and drinks often make you hungry again straight after you’ve consumed them. Try to avoid consuming anything sweet before COMPLETE d-eat. That way you’ll feel more satisfied. Adequate fluid intake is important. Drink 2–3 litres a day – ideally water or some other calorie-free beverage such as unsweetened tea. Beverages sweetened with sugar, alcoholic drinks or “light/ zero” drinks are not recommended. Eat awarely. Take proper time for your meals and concentrate fully on them. That goes both for COMPLETE d-eat and for your regular meal.

RINGANA diet diary

Our diet diary will help you to recognise your habits. Take the time and over the next few days, note down what you have had to eat and drink, and how much. It’s important that you make note of the portion sizes of the individual meals (e.g. 100 g wholegrain rice or 150 ml orange juice). Experience shows that what we think we eat is very different to what we actually eat. Simply recording meal details is often enough to make us reconsider our eating habits. As soon as this awareness exists, we can permanently optimise our diet.

After achieving your desired weight, on one day of the week you replace two meals with COMPLETE d-eat. This “leap day” not only helps to maintain your weight over the long term, it also offers numerous psychological benefits. If used over the long term, the d-eat Day is a helpful tool for self-control and staying motivated.
