Going to Jorge Cruise, I love the man - he's a sell-out now, but he worked for me in the past, so why not now?
Giving the Belly Fat Cure a shot, with his whole Slim, Happy Belly thing going on. This basically states two days out of the week you go sugar/carb less. Then you do the 15/6 sugar/carb thing (15 grams of sugar max a day, six servings of carbs, or 120 grams of carbs a day max) the rest of the week.
I tried to do Tuesday and Wednesday as my sugar free day, but it didn't work well as I was on furlough and I had to take the kid out to lunch after preschool and she asked for Chick-Fil-A, and I was weak, and wanted nuggets and barbecue sauce. So, I enjoyed my Chick-Fil-A on Tuesday and vowed Wednesday and Thursday would be my sugar-free days.
Yesterday I did well. I had my cottage cheese with walnuts for breakfast, leftover grilled chicken breast for lunch, peanuts for snack (the only sugar-free/low-carb thing out of the snack machine at work - that was painful as it was just restocked!), and scrambled eggs for dinner. I made the mug cake with almond flour for dessert, but I'm clearly allergic to something in it as my allergies went haywire shortly after eating it. (And I didn't even use stevia! I did end up using Sweet N Low, which, and I knew it would, sadly, give it a bitter aftertaste, but it was all I had... boo.)
Today's menu will be similar... but I'm excited to work bread in tomorrow! Yay! I went out shopping for some of the brands of bread and stuff mentioned in the BFC book, and was shocked to actually find them in Kroger. I didn't find the soy flour, so am going to have to hit Whole Foods this weekend to get that so I can make pancakes and blueberry muffins, but hey, at least what I have is a start to hitting my 15/6.
I haven't gained back ALL of what I lost on hCG (about four and a half pounds), but most of it (and I expected to).
However, I'm almost back down to my post hCG weight (two more pounds!), and that was after one day on the Slim, Happy Belly diet! And without drinking the appropriate amount of water! (And I weighed wearing clothes!) Woohoo!
