3 Day Diet- Round 2

I can't believe it's Wednesday already. I was hoping for it to be Friday at least, but I'm still in the throes of round two. 

Yesterday started out alright, though I didn't have my grapefruit and didn't end up eating anything else to replace it. Then finally when lunch rolled around, I was too busy. By the time I was ready to eat, my boss had asked me to go to lunch with him and our other boss. I thought it might be something important and work related, so I thought it was in my best interest to go. 

Unfortunately I was wrong and it was a group lunch. However, we were going somewhere that I knew had decently healthy food options, even if it wasn't tuna on bread. I ordered my lettuce wraps and only ate about half. I figured that was going to be fairly close to the calorie content of the lunch I was supposed to have.

Then when work finally wrapped up, I had to eat a quick dinner since we were hosting family game night at my place! I had steak again, with some yummy green beans. 

I munched down my banana while I made homemade apple sauce to go on the ice cream for dessert. I just cut them, warmed them up in my food processor, then added some cinnamon! It was super delicious and went really well with the ice cream.

My family expected food at this thing, so we cooked up a couple pizzas and they happily ate away. I was definitely a little jealous, since pizza is one of the best foods in the whole world. I snuck in a few small bites of the crust but otherwise held strong. Especially since I had already cheated once today.

The gaming went really well, especially since I'm pretty sure I won! We played one of my favorite games and it's about part of our pretty state! It's like Monopoly, except better, since it doesn't take as long and you start out with debt, which is way more like the real world and makes it more interesting. 

I love spending time with my family, so I'm glad we've started the game days. And it's especially nice to have my family visit my pretty home. It makes me really happy to show it off, and just in general to live there. I really like the feeling of being a real adult, though having to go to work is a bit of a bummer sometimes...

3 Day/Military Diet

I realize that this is a "fad diet". But I'm going to try it. It's only for 3 days for one thing. If it doesn't work, ok. If it does, then I can use it as a tool to kickstart my weight loss and/or metabolism and then continue eating my healthier eating habits to continue losing weight. 

UPDATE: Here is the link to my RESULTS :) 

The diet is as follows (with no exceptions or substitutions supposedly, although there are multiple versions of the 3 day diet): 

Day 1
Black coffee or tea with Stevia
1/2 grapefruit or juice
1 slice toast with 1 tablespoon peanut butter

1/2 cup of tuna
1 slice toast
Black coffee or tea with Stevia

3 ounces of lean meat or chicken (any kind)
1 cup green beans
1/2 banana
1 apple
1 cup regular vanilla ice cream

Day 2
1 egg
1 slice of toast
1/2 banana

1 cup cottage cheese or 2 oz cheddar cheese
1 hard boiled egg
5 regular saltine/soda crackers

2 beef/turkey hot dogs
1 cup broccoli
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 …

Military 3 Day Diet- RESULTS


So the results are in! But before I get to them, I want to summarize the whole experience.

Overall, this is a really satisfying, easy diet. It is convenient and quick. It fills you up with a variety of foods, all with different nutritional pluses and there is plenty of sweet, meat, and crunchiness for everyone's needs! 

It is only 3 days long, so the commitment isn't hard, even for the commitment-phobes out there. Plus, it has ICE CREAM!! How can you go wrong? Even the bad stuff isn't that bad, or only for a meal or two.

The next time or two I do it (because I will do it again), then I'll be tweaking it just a little. Chicken here instead of tuna, or replacing a meal with one from the day before. I will see how  well it works and post my results as well. 

After you finish the 3 day part, you have 4 other days until you can do it again. Which honestly makes a ton of sense. Even though you may not be feeling hungry, your body isn't meant to function on so fe…

Month One Progress

After about one month now, I've lost almost 8 pounds. I consider that to be an accomplishment as it is an average of two ponds a week and it's the total that has stayed off. I fully expect to never see those 8 pounds again!

I've switched to generally eating healthier instead of continuing the three day diet. I'm sure I will still do it on occasion, when I need to lose a few or if I plateau. But I really want to make sure that these are life changes that I'm making. I want to KNOW that these 8 pounds are never coming back. And the only way I can do that is to make sure that the choices I make on a daily basis will keep me healthy, happy and, for the time being, on a downward trajectory weight-wise. 
In fact, I've even started running. Not a lot, mind you. But the boyfriend is thrilled and I ran two miles in as many days. With most of it being in quarter mile increments. I hadn't expected to be able or willing to run at all before I was under 200 lbs, but th…
