The Sonoma Diet: A Food Lover's Weight-Loss Plan
The 3 Waves of Sonoma
The diet is simple. You use plates of a specific size, divide them into percentages, and fill them with the "right" food, so portion control is automatic.
During Wave 1, the 10-day jump-start phase of rapid weight loss, you choose from a somewhat restricted list of vegetables, grains, protein, and fat.
During Wave 2, which lasts until you reach your target weight, the food lists are longer and include fresh fruit.
By the time you reach Wave 3, healthy portion control and food choices will come naturally.
