So yesterday was day 7 and here is how it went...
1 egg for breakfast, 2 slices of pepperoni pizza for lunch, 2 slices of cheese pizza for dinner and 8oz of Sprite. I really should eat more fruit and veggies but like I said, I'm eating crap for a reason, to see if this really does work. So what is the final score for week one, doing my best to eat like crap and debunk this whole theory?
I failed...Really, for me, this really couldn't be debunked. I started on Saturday weighing in at 256.6 and did the "diet" for that night (note that Sunday I ate burger king and Monday was BBQ yummm). I got all my ingredients and came back to it Tuesday morning weighing in at 255.8. I've only missed one day of this. I did my best to eat as much as I could, when I wanted to and anything I wanted. My meals included: Pizza, taco bell, jack in the box, fried meats, snickers, pepsi, sprite, coke, brownies and a bunch of other goodies. I didn't exercise, didn't take in water, didn't portion control my food before putting it on my plate (just piled it on and estimated afterwards).
I just never felt hungry, when I did eat I felt over full to the point of vomiting (last night I did!) and I couldn't finish most of my food. Not only that but I felt more alert, had more energy, felt less depressed and it seems that I had less overall pain.
So what were the results?
SW July 12th-255.8lbs
CW July 19th-245.6lbs
That's right, 10lbs gone in one week... And I never felt hungry. In fact, I felt so full at times that it landed me over the toilet or in bed wishing I could bring the food back up.
I've jumped back on the wagon several times while here at sparks. I've tried the sparks plan, my plan and just keeping within my nutrition tracker range and I can say that I've never lost 10lbs in one week while starting back up. 5-6 pounds yes but on average my first month weight loss is 10-12 lbs (5-6 the first week (mostly water weight) and then 2lbs the next 3 weeks). Normally to get that weight loss I have to drop my calories down to the lowest recommended and have to put in an hour a day in exercise. With this I ate at my worse and sat on my rear and lost more then I've ever done in a week.
But I'm still skeptical...So I'll be continuing on.
