This morning I weighed in at 174.4. That’s 11 pounds in 22 days.
I also realized last night that I have probably not been eating enough protein. Do you know how much chicken 8 oz is? It’s TWO breasts. Not one. TWO. Seven ounces of turkey is a whole bowl full, if it’s ground breast. I have been trying to eat enough turkey and I measured my beef and tuna, but I thought that 8 oz of chicken was one breast, not two. Silly me.
So this diet is asking for about as much protein as BFL, but it isn’t in as many small meals.
Well, I already knew I could not eat the kinds of meals they said. That’s just too much food in one sitting, so I’ve been breaking it up. But it is difficult.
Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the amount of food and sometimes I have the munchies after I ate. I guess it depends on what I had.
I ran out of the wild berry passion drink. That was my favorite. Then I ran out of the lemonade. That was my second favorite. So now I am having chicken soup. (Which is really chicken broth.) It’s okay, as long as you let the added stuff steep. If you try to mix it up and then drink it, the little carrot bits are still solid as rocks. Yuck. But if you give it a few minutes, it’s pretty good.
When I go in today, or tomorrow, I need to replenish my drinks. And I’m about half way through my bars. So maybe I should purchase the 12 boxes for $11 each. I know what I like and I’m going to be on this for a while. Though I do want to try the caramel nut bar. It looked good and I love nuts and caramel.
You can only eat one bar a day, which is probably a good thing, because they have more calories and more fat, but they are very nice desserts.
The lemon chiffon pudding isn’t bad either, as long as it is cold. If it gets the least bit warm, it’s nasty. So when they say “cold” water, they mean cold water. Don’t try ice in the mix, though. That doesn’t help. I tried that. And measure. Too much water and it’s like a syrupy drink and not very good.
