An All You Can Eat Diet? Sign me up!

I swear, you guys, these last ten pounds (or so) are gonna be the end of me.  I could do another round of HCG, but honestly? I am not in the right head space for that at all.

And three weeks sounds like a really long time when I'm staring down my daughter's seventh birthday, a PTO fundraiser and various barbeques and other summer stuff.

So, here's my plan of attack. I found a pin on Pinterest that sounding promising. It was an infographic for the "Eat Your Heart Out!" diet that claims I can lose 10+ pounds in 7 days.

I'm not shooting for all ten in a week, honestly. I'll just be happy if the scale budges. In the right direction (as opposed to what it did last week).

I followed the pin to the Justin, Ashley & The Sidekicks blog, where I read up on the diet (Ashley's got a great FAQ up) and read an uncountable number of comments about it, as well.

Ashley says that she was given this diet plan by a physician and that she does it several times a year.

This diet is strict, but not as strict as HCG, so if I can do that for three weeks, I figured I'll have this in the bag.

Basically, every day of the week is dedicated to a different food or pair of foods. Then you finish up on the last day with a day of nothing but Miracle Soup.

So today is day one, and that is Fruit Day. You'd think, since this is all you can eat, that I'd be feeling full to bursting by 4:30 in the afternoon.

I've hit on a very important truth, though. Fruit is not filling. Unless you dip it in chocolate. Which I cannot do.

Also? Lots of fruit = lots of gastrointestinal fun.

I will admit to a small cheat of coffee with a bit of milk this morning.

And I am having a diet soda, now, which I'm not 100% sure is verboten or not. It does have some sodium, so I probably should not be drinking it. But, really? After a day of strawberries and watermelon... well, it's helping with my hunger, anyway.

The true test will be this evening. Can I stick to this diet through a playoff hockey game? I'm thinking if I have a pint of blueberries to stress nosh on, I'll be okay.

So, stay tuned.  Tomorrow is veggie day. Unless I cave and eat an entire chicken for dinner. Which could actually happen.  No, for real. I'm hungry.

  3. I will do that! I actually sent you a message on FB (just in case you were wondering why you're getting random messages from strangers), since I did the anonymous post here. I'm sick of P2 (I am doing the 43 day). I'm ready for P3. It was all I could do to keep myself from finishing my girls' mac and cheese tonight.
