Today is the first day of my new diet. I went to the hour long meeting last night and we were given an info packet that was about 10 pages thick plus a zip drive with 300 more pages that include the diet founder's book, recipes, and instructions. Yikes! Lots of reading. But what was fabulous was the instructions for days 1 and 2.
The instructions read verbatim, "You MUST gorge yourself and eat as much food as you can throught the day. (This overeating will only be done for the fist two days.)" And the food list for the two "loading days" as they are called include some of the following: chocolate, pastries with whip cream, sugar, fried meats (particularly pork), eggs, bacon, mayonnaise, bread, thick butter, avocados, nuts, seeds, coconut milk and oil, olives, cakes, cookies, custards, creams, pastries, cream and cheese.
This is the first diet I've ever been on where I could order a pizza with all the works, cheesy bread, AND dessert and tell the waiter it was because I am on a diet! They would look at you crazy! But believe it or not, I'm only into 1/2 of the first day and I already feel yucky! I'll be glad to get to the cleansing, low cal part of the diet after these two days are over. This should be every woman's dream. Who knew eating so much junk and fat would make you feel so cruddy!
I'm hoping that this diet works for me. It is based on my giving myself shots of a hormone each morning that will reset my metabolism. And, yes, I actually did it this morning. The shot didn't hurt at all but the alcohol swab stung like a son-of-a-gun!
I'll probably gain 3-5 pounds in this two-day loading period but hopefully it will come off quickly and I will feel fabulous in the process. I'm on my way to a new start of another joylicious adventure in my life!! Stay tuned!!
