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!
