Day 4 of the Evil Soup Diet

I'm feeling pretty good today. Last night for supper I decided to eat a can of the PC Beef Vegetable soup (contained naturally, no MSGs) and felt so much better. It still has the green beans and carrots and onions, it did have a little bit of beef (which I did eat because I felt good about protein on volleyball day), and potatoes (I did NOT eat the potatoes since it's one of the forbidden foods other than on day 2)

Today is Banana & Skim milk day. Or, as another website put it, Banana smoothie day - that makes it sounds a little better I guess. For me, I'd just rather drink the milk although I'm really not a fan of white milk, I always put chocolate syrup in mine...he he! And bananas, I really like. So far so good. I have another can of soup for lunch and again, feel good about it. I'm not feel stressed and horrified over eating THE horrid evil soup. I figure any vegetable soup is good, better than quitting!

According to my scales this morning, I am down 6 lbs. I don't see a big difference or anything but I'm happy for the kick start.

Speaking of kick-starts, I've been searching the internet and finally found a website that actually does describe this diet as exactly that - a kickstart - to continued healthy eating. AND, very helpful indeed, it lists the type of low-GI foods you should include in "Step 2"

This website also reminds us again that this is not a diet to be prolonged or continued on a regular basis. It suggests a maximum of doing this diet only 3 times within a 6-month period. That's one week every 2 months.

Tomorrow I finally get to eat BEEF! I'll have leftover roast beef for lunch and grilled steaks for dinner. Should be yummy!

I'm so excited you get beef! I'm so cheesy. Think no time now and you'll be finished this kick start and you'll realize it wasn't so bad after all.
