Dietary Solutions

(FYI ** The kids are down this weekend. They've been down since Wednesday, actually, spending some good, uninterrupted, quality time with dad. Not my dad, their dad. Anyone wanting to see them must make an appointment in advance with Eric.)

I've been realizing that I have a very unhealthy diet. I pig out on bad food. Not bad tasting, just bad-for-you food. So, I decided to take a dietary sabbatical (thank you, Steve, for your phrase). Although I dont need to lose weight, I needed something to clean my system. Steve is on the Atkins, but I find it a bit too meaty. Dada is on the South Beach, but that sounds too complicated. I remember a couple of co-workers that had tried a diet for a week, which helped them to clean their system, as well as lose weight. I needed a solution, and I needed one fast. So begins my journey through the......Cabbage Soup Diet!

Monday, which was day one, I did my fruits & soup. Of course, I also added Cheese Nips and Sour Cream & Onion chips. Oh yeah, and a coffee and snapple.

Day 2, which was leafy greens and soup day. I had more fruits, soup, and junk food, as stated above.

Day 3 was fruits, leafies, and soup day. I, yet again, did the fruits, soup, and junk food.

Day 4, which is today, was bananas, milk and soup day. I did the bananas and milk and soup. I also did Thai instant noodles and siew long bao.

As you all can see, I have skipped one day of dieting. It did not really "clean" my system, as it should've. However, I did lose about 2lbs. This diet is only good for a week. It's not meant for long-term because you would not get your daily nutrients. I still have 3 days to go, even though I'm not really following the diet. But after 3 days, I think I'll be good on cabbage for a while. If followed "religiously," one can lose up to 10lbs in 7 days. You'll definitely be "clean."

Dada made some cabbage soup for us last weekend, as starter. Just to see how it would taste. It was good but did nothing for me. But it definitely cleaned her system for about a week. I, personally, dont think it was just the soup. I mean, it really did absolutely nothing for me. I believe she lost a few pounds just from that!
