Today is day 16 of what is really going to be a 24 day cleanse, rather than 30. I did the math wrong. We're going to Auburn, AL in 2 weeks to watch the Bulldawgs have some tiger for dinner...we hope (other than Sunflower, who's our token AU fan). Anyway, you can't have a weekend full of tailgating if none of us are drinking!!! It could be dangerous. Stay tuned for updates on how that goes. I sure hope Lollipop and Tabby can handle us 3 light weights on their own.
I'm really getting the hang of this eating plan. Every day is easier and easier. Of course my night cravings are still kicking in and driving me CRAZY!!! As of Sunday evening, I'm down 8.8 lbs. I'm wearing jeans that wouldn't fit over my fat ass 2 weeks ago. I'm feeling GREAT!!!
I've had tons of people asking for information about this diet. I think the most important aspect is the DON'T list. It's much easier to pick out what you can have once you've established what you can't have. I'll share that with you now....
Imitation Meat Products (soy)
Fish & Seafood:
Fried & Breaded Fish of any kind
Beans & Legumes: (Basically NO Beans)0
Avoid all grains and starchy foods, including bread, pasta, cereal, rice, oatmeal, pastries & baked goods.
Fats & Oils:
Any Partially Hydrogenated Oil
Peanut Butter :(
Any Nuts Or Seeds Dry Roasted In Oil
Avoid all fruits except those mentioned on the approved list....especially bananas, apricots, grapes, melon, peaches, oranges, pears, dried fruit and canned fruit
Fructose or Corn Syrup
Alcohol of any kind
I'll give you all a couple of days to absorb this list before I bombard you with the approved list. One good rule of thumb is if it's processed, it's not approved. For quick easy meal ideas, follow me on Facebook.
