Thanks again everyone!
Yesterday, I meant to post how my program works, but I was so excited that I forgot! lol
Anyways - here is pretty much how it works now that I am done with the cleansing part.
1 - protein (which is one egg or 2 oz. of egg beaters)
1 - starch (1 piece of bread, rice cake, cereal, ect...)
1 - fruit (any)
1 - 8 oz glass of skim milk
1 - protein (fish, chicken, beef, no lunchmeats)
1 - starch (small baked potato, pasta, rice, ect...)
2 - vegetables (must be fresh or frozen, no canned)
1 - fruit (any)
*** In between snack IF hungry = Nutrient Bar (which I must add are YUMMY!
1 - protein
1 - starch
2 - vegetables
1 - fruit
*** Another in between snack if I get hungry = Nutrient Bar***
For beverages I can have:
Caffeinated Coffee or Tea - 2 cups/day
Crystal Lite, in place of pop - 2 glasses/day
Decaffeinated Coffee - Unlimited
Diet, Caffeine free Pop - 2, 12 oz. cans / day
Herb Tea - unlimited
And of course, all the water I want
This is my first official day on this plan. The last three days was the "cleansing phase."
I haven't had any troubles today, and it feels good to eat other meat besides beef. I don't feel hungry after I eat, and I don't have the urge to cheat.
I go back to the clinic today to get weighed in and ask any more questions that I may have. I know there won't be a difference in my weight yet, since I was weighed yesterday, but hopefully within the week, I'll be down a few more pounds!
Thanks everyone for the support, you are all wonderful, wonderful people! You are all doing wonderful in your weight loss journeys. Keep up the great work!
