first 5 days of thinique

Friday, October 18, 2013

Today completes my 5 day protein plan using the thinique menu. I basically ate the same thing everyday for breakfast, lunch and snacks. I had a headache and swollen sinuses for the first 3 days, the second/third day where the worst. Due to sugar and caffeine withdrawal.

I had 1/2 C egg beaters with 2 turkey sausage patties (low sodium), for lunch 4 oz of deli meat (usually chicken or turkey) with a sugar free jello, dill pickles and a vitamin water zero.

For snacks, I had beef jerky or a thinique mint protein bar (not too bad tasting).

I had various types of meat (4oz) with sugar free jello, dill pickle and sugar free popsicle. I am very glad the 5 days are done.
I am going to try to plan the next 5 days of eating with the guide, if I exercise (if I get about 300 calories, I get to add 300 calories to my net calories for the day) I get more calories to eat! The guide says to exercise for at least 5 days a week (walking, etc).

More later!!

I went from 184 to 176 lbs. (probably water weight)
My ankles feel a little swollen, however, I do walk around a lot at work (constantly on my feet) on a tile floor. I get about an hour break for lunch to rest my poor feet...

I am going in saturday (10/19), for my official weigh in and B shot. I get veggies, 3x week a type of fruit/dairy product starting tomorrow.

    I do recommend thinique. However, it can get quite expensive. I also got sick of taking phentermine (lowest dose) and did stop taking it after a bit. I still have two weeks worth. The skinny shots are helpful with carb cravings. They are about $100 for 5 or $20 a shot. They are the standard B vitamins with some amino acids (whatever weight loss cocktail) are added. It is very similar to south beach diet or medifast (without out packaged food) after inital 5 days of only potein. Make sure if you do only shots and a high protein diet, drink lots of water and take a good multivitamin/mineral supplement. the phentermine helps, but, I don't like taking medicine. Hope this helps!

    Did you stick with thinique? Would you recommend it? One just opened near me, and I am considering it.
