Of course, by diet I mean a change in eating habits. Just wanted to post that I jumped right in and stuck to this now for 6 days, barely having any withdrawal, and the cravings for cooked food and snacks are there, but not too bad. It is a good test of will power and conviction, and I like to think with my experience in the law movement that both are well honed.
According to cron-o-meter, I am not achieving my daily requirements of calories, carbs, protein, or fat...and I have lost 4.5 pounds in 5 days, today being day 6. I find I simply cannot eat enough to get it up there. I get full, I feel satiated, and do not require to eat more.
Some of the slop I have come up with that would barely be called a meal have been interesting, however, I'm sure I will get better at that as time goes on.
Not a great blog, but just wanted to update for any new people that it is not hard to make the transition. I will post before and after photo's at the 30 day mark, but I find I have little problem with energy and can easily hit the treadmill for 45 - 50 min and have even started working out again with weights....finally!
I thought this would have been much harder. I am still having a cup of coffee in the morning, and I will kick that soon as I find my cravings for coffee are turning into revulsion once I finally have a cup. I do not enjoy it anymore. I had one beer with my father over the weekend, and some cooked brown rice with no seasoning so as to not offend him and the Supper he made. But if that is all I have to confess to, I am doing pretty good.
Currently building the greenhouse in my shop with grow lights, because of the northern climate, will film a video as it progresses and post the video on my website with a link here. If anyone actually reads this, I hope it was one minute of your life well spent, as time is the only commodity we ever really have that is our own.
Have a great week everyone!
