Diets: Day 1 of 3


Diet is that awful "D" word that most of us don't like.  I know I don't like it at all, but I have gotten to big for my britches, so now I must diet.

I joined a Biggest Loser group yesterday.  It consists of my daughter, her boyfriend and a few of their friends.  The cost was $75.00 and it is for 3 months.  I had to pick what my goal was for weight loss for the first month.  If I meet that goal then I will get $10.00 back.  Then if I lose 6% of my starting weight in the second month I will get back $10.00.  So there are a few incentives each month to keep it exciting!

Today I started The 3 Day Diet.  It's also referred to as The Military Diet, because of the discipline it takes to stay on the regimen for three full days without cheating or quitting!!  I am pretty sure that I have done this diet at least a dozen times during my adult life, but I am giving it another try.

You can drink as much water as you want during the 3 days because you are not losing water weight.  You cannot drink anything sweetened or flavored. You can have black coffee or tea, but no creamers, no milk, no non-dairy creamers, no honey, no lemon, no artificial sweeteners of any kind!  I like cream in my coffee and splenda in my tea...... Eeeeekkkkk!!!!!!!

The key to this diet working is to be chemically balanced to boost metabolism, so no substitutions and you have to eat everything that is listed.

So here is what I will be eating for the next three days:

Day 1
Breakfast
1/2 grapefruit
1 slice of toast
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
coffee or tea

Lunch
1/2 cup tuna
1 slice of toast
coffee or tea

Supper
3 ounces of any type lean meat
1 cup green beans
1/2 banana
1 small apple
1 cup of vanilla ice cream


 Day 2
Breakfast
1 egg, scambled, hard-boiled, poached (cooked without any fat)
1 slice of toast
1/2 banana

Lunch
1 cup of cottage cheese
1 egg, scrambled, hard-boiled, poached
5 saltine crackers

Supper
2 hot dogs (no bun)
1 cup broccoli
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 banana
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream

Day 3
Breakfast
5 saltine crackers
1 oz cheddar cheese
1 small apple

Lunch
1 egg, scrambled, hard-boiled, poached
1 slice toast

Supper
1 cup tuna
1/2 banana
1 cup vanilla ice cream

So can you guess what I will be looking forward to everyday?  That's right.  The ice cream!!!

I have made it to lunch on the first day and so far so good!

I plan on posting again tomorrow to give you an update.  Hopefully I will have the strength to do so!

Until tomorrow!  Thanks for spending...........
