The main aim of our Down-Size-Me Diet is to help people eat less. The bottom line is that all excess fat in the body is the result of too many Calories consumed, and weight loss results from the reverse - a calorie deficit. In simplest terms - eating less than what your body needs to fuel its daily functions is what's needed for weight loss. That's what this diet makes easier to achieve. What you need to know is that the Down-Size-Me Diet is intentionally flexible and there aren't any "wrong ways" to do it. Sure, some ways will work better for you than others. This is why we suggest taking the first few weeks to just to get your head around the concept and a feel for how things work. From there you can adjust your diet to fit and work best for you. To help you with all that, we have a few "Get-Started" steps. Take a look at them, then make your choices and get going!

THE THREE STEPS FOR DOWN-SIZING
1 - BEGIN WITH THOUGHT . . .
Intentional weight loss begins in the mind. This is why the Down-Size-Me Diet's FIRST STEP aims to adjust thinking. You see, people naturally tend to behave consistently with what they believe about themselves. People who see themselves as generous, give things away. People who think they are honest, try not to lie. It's the same for people who believe they are "Down-Sizers." Instead of seeing themselves as people who have to eat as much as they can at every opportunity (Super-Sizers) or that to lose weight they need to be "Perfect-Dieters," Down-Sizers settle into seeing themselves as, "FREE to eat the foods I like, ONLY LESS of them!" By linking this eating "IDENTITY" to STEPS 2 and 3 of the plan, the whole Down-Size-Me Diet comes together.
2 - FUEL WITH SHAKES . . .
The second step is all about the SHAKES. The Down-Size-Me Diet uses three specially formulated food powders that act as "Meal-Reducers" or "Meal-Replacements." The Shakes - LEAN95, DSM750, and EASY SHAKE - are all-natural, high-volume, low-calorie drinks that can dampen even the biggest appetites. With hunger largely out of the way, the "Eating Less" part of the plan becomes a whole lot easier. Many people comment on how much simpler the shakes have made their lives. This convenience factor is one of the things that makes staying on the diet and maintaining weight loss success much more likely.
3 - SHED THE POUNDS . . .
The third step of the Down-Size-Me Diet is what ultimately gets the weight down. That's because the "Calorie Cutting" that's essential for weight loss happens here. With 95 Calories or less in each of the shake options it's easy to reduce the total calories consumed in a day, in a week, and in a month. Whether you choose to replace meals completely (Meal-Replacements) or "shrink" a meal to half (Meal-Reductions) by drinking the shake immediately before you eat - you can comfortably cut your average calorie intake by 20-50%. That's why Down-Sizers get the results.
THE THREE WAYS TO DOWN-SIZE
The nice thing about the Down-Size-Me Diet is that you get to apply the three steps whichever WAY you prefer. You can even switch up the different WAYS and use combinations of all three to get the most out of your Down-Size-Me Diet. Ultimately, the Down-Size-Me Diet recommendations come from us - but the final choices are yours . . .
1. DO YOU EAT TOO MUCH AT MEAL TIME?
WAY ONE aims to achieve calorie restriction through meal reductions and/or meal replacements. Simply look at your week and select the meals you plan on replacing or "shrinking" to half. Mark them off on the MEAL PLANNER you can DOWNLOAD from here and then stick to it. It's that simple!
2. DO YOU EAT TOO MUCH AT CERTAIN TIMES OF DAY?
WAY TWO aims to achieve calorie reduction through reduced snacking and not eating at certain times of the day. What needs to happen with this way is that you drink a full shake at the beginning of the time zone you have selected and then another shake at the end of the time zone. This is what we call the "two-zone rule." By sticking to it you can effectively cut back on snacked calories as well as keep from overeating at any meal that falls into the time zone you've chosen to shaken down! The advantage of this plan is that it works to reduce appetite for the zone that follows the one you've chosen - this tends to be a calorie-cutting bonus! DOWNLOAD WAY TWO PLAN HERE.
3. DO YOU WANT IT FAST AND SIMPLE?
WAY THREE aims to achieve calorie reduction through appetite-controlled, modified fasting for 1-2-3 or even 4 days a week. There is good research to show that "fast" days dotted through the week is an effective way of losing weight. The use of the LEAN95 and / or the DSM750 just makes the whole thing that much easier (and healthier). Intermittent fasting is potentially a safe, effective, and extremely simple way of Down-Sizing-Successfully. Give it a try! DOWNLOAD WAY THREE PLANNER HERE
WHICHEVER WAY YOU CHOOSE . . .
As you can see, the Down-Size-Me Diet's THINK - SHAKE - SHRINK Steps can be applied in different WAYS throughout the week. The idea is for you to reduce your calorie intake (eat / drink less) over the entire week. This can best be achieved by matching your overeating patterns to the Down-Size-Me Diet's weekly options 1,2, or 3. Remember - you can actually combine these three options, if you like. You can also change them up week on week based on what your work and social schedule looks like. In the end, all that's required to be a successful Down-Sizer is a WAY to take on the week, a shake ready to go whenever your plan says you need one, and then to think clearly enough to do it. With that kind of compliance the results take care of themselves.
MAINTAINING WEIGHT LOSS WITH THIS DIET
We all know that, for most people, maintaining weight loss is the greatest challenge. Losing weight is one thing; keeping it off is another.

In many respects - Down-Sizing just becomes a way of life. Below are three basic options for weight loss maintenance. Follow the one/s that suit your lifestyle and preferences and you can avoid the kind of weight regain that frustrates so many dieters.

DON'T FORGET: PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS IMPORTANT
Down-Sizing is mainly about diet - eating less with the help of EASY SHAKE, LEAN95 and the DSM750 shakes. This does not mean that exercise is unimportant. On the contrary - we are mindful that physical activity is essential for good health and function, both of which are goals of the Down-Size-Me Diet. We also know that exercise is something a lot of people don't do. For reasons ranging from lack of time and energy to a shortage of money and know-how - many people fail to do the amount of physical activity they know is good for them. The good news is we have a plan that makes doing more, easy . . .
