10.3 pounds. One week.
|Breakfast: Oatmeal and pills|
More at the "read more." If I had known how easy this was, I'd have done it years ago. Of course, I'm only one week in, and I've got a long way to go. Fifty or sixty more pounds. But, I feel great, I think I have a bit more energy than I did before, and to be honest, I'm having a hard time eating all of the food I'm supposed to eat. I'm just not hungry.
I'm eating only 1,100 calories a day, and I'm not hungry.
There have been a few--I was going to say "downsides" but actually, a few less-than-upsides. The powdered omelette mix has a bit of an off aftertaste. But pile enough salsa and jalapeno slices on it, and it's edible. Eating something every two hours or so is, as I've already mentioned, harder than it sounds, at least if you try to do it consistently for days, or weeks.
|Soup, chili-flavored soy puffs, and berry smoothie|
But, on the upside, the pancakes and oatmeal are quite good. The soups are pretty good, too, especially when I use the soy puffs as cracker-substitutes to get close to that gruel-mush consistency that I like. Yeah, I'm weird. The mixed berry smoothie mix is outstandingly tasty.
And, I can drink Coke Zero. I love Coke Zero.
The next test comes this weekend, when we take a road trip to Chicago to see Snookums' best friend Linda, and go to a Steely Dan[*1] concert. AND, I'm going to attempt to eat at a restaurant for the first time since the diet began. Ooh, scary!
