Today is my second day on the South Beach Diet--Phase I. The purpose of this 14-day eating plan is to banish food cravings, whisk away the two pounds I gained over the holidays and recharge my motivation.
Today, I followed my plan to the letter:
Breakfast--eggs and turkey bacon
Snack--celery and laughing cow cheese
Lunch--burger patty and grilled vegetables
Dinner--3 oz grilled chicken and a tossed salad
Dessert--sugar free jello and a dollop of whipped topping
All in all, a disciplined day. I even spent some time in the kitchen grilling vegetables, baking chicken breasts, cooking hamburger patties and washing/cutting/bagging celery.
In general, people lose 3-7 pounds during Phase I. Hopefully, I'll achieve similar results. My next scheduled weigh in is Wednesday, so we'll see.
