Yesterday, diet Day Seven, I took my soup to work as per normal, to discover one of the ingredients had soured overnight and the soup tasted vinegary. It didn’t appear to be very tasty or safe, so I ended up buying a salad and some water. For dinner I had brown rice and veg, as per requested.
Day Five was so much easier. We were allowed 10-20 oz of beef/chicken/fish and 6-8 tomatoes. For brunch we had beef (Dave) and chicken (me), with a tomato sauce I made from canned/fresh tomatoes and herbs/spices. Dinner was the same. For lunch we were out with friends after some mini golfing and cheated slightly – we both had a diet coke and shared some nachos. So cheese, guacamole and crisps were involved, but only in a small quantity. I also had a pina colada. Oops.
So my dairy ‘problem’ is obviously not just in my head. Today was my first day putting dairy back into my diet, and my body isn’t that comfortable drinking two glasses of skim milk. I definitely need to keep a tab on that.
Day Four has gone okay. Ideally they want you to eat up to 8 bananas and drink as much skim milk as you want. 8 bananas? really? I’ve had 3. I have 2 sitting next to me that I should be able to eat before bed, but 8? I’d actually have to buy more, and even then, I don’t really know if I’ll do that. I also had my soup for lunch, and I’ll be having that for a late dinner soon enough. Or I’ll end up at the movies just with bananas to eat. I’m slightly disappointed that I haven’t lost anything today, but I think it’s the dairy making me bloated. I’ve stopped dairy since lunch time, so hopefully I’ll feel better in the morning.
Yeah so now it sounds like I’m working for the Department of Defense. I assure you I’m not.
