South Beach, Phase 1, Day 1
Monday, April 02, 2012
Well, I made it through the first day of the strict Phase 1. It's basically lean protein, a TON of veggies and absolutely no processed sugar or carbs or alcohol for 2 weeks. This is to pretty much purge the body of its sugar and bad carb cravings. 3 meals, two snacks and one dessert. Here is what I had today:
Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 tsp, 1/2 c. green pepper & onion. 1/2 c. fat free vanilla yogurt
(Literally, almost TOO much food!)
Snack 1: 3 Tbsp (1 oz) sunflower seeds (more than you'd expect!)
Lunch: 1/2 can of tuna, 1 tsp mayo, diced onion. Tomato (sliced), green peppers, celery. Diet Dr. Pepper
Snack 2: String cheese
Dinner: Grilled chicken breast with lemon, grilled asparagus, salad with vinegar and olive oil, 1.5 cups skim milk.
Dessert: Orange Jello
All the food I ate today was RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS. And the best part is that I experienced genuine hunger right on schedule. I'd get full from a meal, then start to feel hungry...only to realize that it was snack time. And so on. Very cool!
Overall, a decent day! Excited for tomorrow!
Toughest part of the day was watching a movie with my hubby while he sat there eating a bowl of my FAVORITE Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits.
