While it is not my intention to turn this bloggy site into a play-by-play of my diet woes, several people have asked me what, exactly, does a person eat on a diet like this.
I personally don't know why this would interest anyone, but I am here to oblige my faithful readers (all four of them).
Thankfully, Dr.Z has made the plan very simple (if boring) so that I have only a few foods to choose from.
Two servings of these fruits, 6 hours apart (for me that means one for breakfast, and one in between lunch and dinner): apple, orange, strawberries (about six large ones), and 1/2 grapefruit.
For Lunch: 3.5oz of green veggies (or cauliflower), and 3.5oz of lean meat (chicken or light fish)
For Dinner: same as lunch
No oil. No butter. No condiments (except certain hot sauces).
I am allowed salt and pepper and a few spices.
PLUS, all the sugar-free, calorie-free drinks I would like (which includes, but is not limited to: tea, coffee, diet drinks, crystal light, and water.)
I can also have 1 tablespoon of fat-free milk (which I put in my coffee, of course).
I am on day 2, and today has been immeasurably better than yesterday. I'm not quite as hungry, and I already feel like I have more energy than normal.
Good things are happening, people. Good Things.
