If you haven’t been following along, I’ve been on this whack diet for the last three days. You can read about day one HERE and day two HERE.
This diet is called the Baptist health diet. It is used for overweight patients who need to lose weight… with quickness.
In no way am I a dietitian (for the love of wine I had to look up how to spell it). I just knew I needed a jump start to lose some weight and I’ve heard great things about this diet.
Day three was much easier than day two. Day two was for the birds. I’m pretty sure it had to do with the fact that I was at work and not at home salivating over H’s food.
Like day one and two I waited as long as I could to eat breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was 5 saltine crackers, slice of cheese and an apple. I’ve always been a breakfast person. I don’t need a plate of pancakes with a side of eggs each morning. I just need a little something to soak up my coffee. I had to admit it but this diet was on key for breakfast. I felt the quantity was right on. The only thing I would change would be day two. Day two was 1 egg, 1 slice of toast and ½ of a banana. Who eats ½ of a banana? No one…
I will most likely stick to the breakfast portion of this diet.
Lunch on day three was 1 hard-boiled egg, 1 slice of toast. I kept re-reading the sheet. I just knew I was leaving something off. Needless to say I was hungry and downing coffee most of the afternoon.
Dinner: strange I would always be starving like Marvin on the way home for dinner but when I sat down to eat, I wasn’t that hungry. I always felt like I was eating so much food for dinner.
Day Three Dinner:
1 cup of tuna or chicken or Turkey (I went with a chicken breast)
1 cup of carrots or beets (I went with the carrots)
1 cup cauliflower, cantaloupe, banana or greens (I went with the banana)
½ cup of vanilla ice cream
½ cup of cantaloupe (I skipped…I was too full)
I wasn’t hungry at all after dinner. Usually I’d get hungry around 8.
I also waited to eat my ice cream until 7:00pm. I’m wondering if that was a no-no.
All in all, I think this diet worked. I will be doing this again…next week.
Total weight lost: 6 pounds WHERE THE EFF IS MY OTHER 4 POUNDS?
I’m sure my four pounds are in the creamer in the 27 cups of coffee I drank due to hunger. I defiantly learned that I drink way too much coffee. I’m plan on kicking this habit this week… that’s a lie. I will kick this habit when my spark comes in.
The past three days has taught me so much
1.I was eating crap. Like all the time. My plan is to stick to chicken breast, fresh veggies… some fruit here and there but no to sweets and junk
2.No snacking. It’s just not necessary.
3.No eating after 8pm
4.No drinking during the week #holdme
5.No beer…just red wine
I’m pretty proud of my results. I’ll take 6 pounds in three days. That’s with no form of working out.
Next week, I plan to start this diet again. I may do a little tweaking since I plan on running every day next week and I plan on no drinking 6 cups of coffee a day.
Has anyone else tried this diet? I’d love to hear what you thought about it.
