Update after my own completion of Week Four of  “ Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food ” meal plan :
.
Here is the final tally after my own completion of four weeks of  “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan :

1) Total weight loss: 28.5 lbs. (From 286.5 lbs on January 19th, to 258 lbs on February 16th).

2) No more need to inject Insulin. Before my change of eating habits, I had to inject twice a day for about ten years)

3) Tremendous increase in energy.

4) New-found ability to sleep well and deep.

5)  No more depressions and dark moods.

6) Overall increase in well-being

7) Even with occasional “falling off the wagon” from my meal plan, (ahhh, those pastries 😦 ), my weight has stabilized at 261 lbs. Obviously this is still too high and I will start with a new Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food meal plan (Same principles, different dinner menus) at the beginning of May to shed another 20 lbs.

As I mentioned before, I am sure that other changes in my life style, such as more exercise, alcohol abstinence and refraining from smoking have greatly contributed to my overall improvement of physical and mental well-being. However, all noticeable improvements have only started since I started Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food meal plan.
After just one month of adhering to my Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food meal plan, my physical and mental state has changed so much that I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody who is on a quest for a healthier lifestyle without being confined by a bland, boring, unrealistic diet which does not make sense and is impossible to maintain in the long run. 

However, please note that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you change your nutrition or your medication without consulting your physician and / or nutritionist  first, even getting a second or third opinion before considering any changes !!!

P.S.
Update after my own completion of Week Three :
 >
So far I have lost 19.5 lbs of weight in three weeks of  “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food”  meal plan.
I feel much better, sleep much better and on top of all the benefits of living a bit more on the sensible side of life, I eat as much as I want. (Except on the two days of the week which allow me a dinner of anything I crave, although in much smaller portions).
I have to admit that I fell off the wagon twice:
– Once in Week One: I had a pizza for lunch 😦
Once in Week Two: I had a couple of strawberry-filled doughnuts after dinner 😦

This  beauty of a salad will conclude Week One of “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan. (There will be an initial 4 week plan)
For everybody not yet interested in a bit of a healthier lifestyle, I suggest you try this salad anyway. Healthier and lighter food in my case does certainly not mean tasteless and boring. 🙂  (As is the case with so many other lifestyle food suggestions out there) 😦
Now, I understand that sardines are not everybody’s favorite seafood, but as usual, feel free to replace them with the seafood of your preference, such as shrimp, lobster, sole, salmon, clams, mussels, scallops, crab meat, etc.
