“If you’re a bird, I’m a bird” on my left rib from the film The Notebook, done by Positive Tattoos in Baltimore, MD. I believe finding and loving another individual in this vast world is one of the most special things anyone can experience. And once a person does find that significant other, the two essentially become one. If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.
That is also why I insist that you consume approximately three grams of fiber supplement about fifteen minutes before your dinner. You may mix the supplement with water or consume one of the tablet variety. It doesn’t matter to me. All that matters is that you make consuming fiber a priority in the future. I include it for you in the twenty-one-day eating plan, but I strongly urge you to continue the same behavior in the future. Fiber helps keep you regular, lean, and full–full in the good way, as in “not hungry.” Fiber is a great tool for warding off hunger for two reasons. First, it helps fill your stomach. It’s heavy and big. Then, the magic of fiber is that most of the calories pass through your body without being absorbed. That makes it a miracle food. The second reason I love fiber is that it regulates blood sugar and keeps it at an even level.
Fiber gives you the “natural” cleansing your body wants, not an artificial one that lasts just a few days. Fiber should be one of the cornerstones of your eating plan. That will get your body “moving” again in the right way.
I sincerely apologize for not keeping up with my blog, too many things to do and not enough time. I am still on track with my diet and have kept losing weight, so thats a plus!
Day 10 Weigh In: 170.3 lbs
Since I have not been eating sweets, junk food, soda or fast food I have noticed how flat my stomach has gotten and I don’t feel bloated either. I do miss my soda though and yes chocolates too. I dislike having such a sweet tooth but I’m thankful for the all the fresh fruit I get to eat while on this diet.
Day 4 Weigh In: 173.6 lbs
Breakfast is by far the most delicious meal in this plan and it’s very important. I’ve noticed that I have way more energy than before and I don’t feel so slugish either!
Day 3 Weigh In: 174.6 lbs
I am loving this diet, the food is delicious and I’m so happy that I can substitue fish with either chicken breast or turkey. I’m very proud of myself for not cheating at all. I guess I do have will power.
So that means no more soda of any kind for me. Farewell to my addiction, hello to my happy healthy life. ^_^
And top off the list with the most evil of all “evil” carbs–liquid calories in the form of sports drinks, soda, and juice.
Day 1 Diet Meal Plan
Breakfast: Turkey Bacon Scramble…this was quite delicious!
Lunch: Load Sweet Potato…loved this meal as well.
Snack: Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt….this was also yummy, a little thicker consistency than regular yogurt but it was fat free.
Dinner: Grilled Halibut with Fresh Spinach Salad….ok this is where it gets tough for me because I’m not really into fish. Every once in a while I can eat Salmon but that’s about it. There are many meals that include several types of fish through out this diet plan. The Halibut was ok, taste wise just don’t like having to watch out for the bones and I’m definitely not into Feta cheese either, which was in the salad. I did not eat the entire meal.
I’ll have to find out if I can substitute the fish with other items, so I’ll be emailing the author/fitness guide Jim Karas.
I will be starting the 31 minute exercise program tomorrow.
