Make vegetables a big part of day two: You can eat any kind of cooked or raw vegetable as much as you like along with your soup. Try to pile up on leafy dark vegetables while avoiding those dry peas, beans and corn. During supper, a large potato that has been baked in the oven and lightly touched with butter may be consumed. Refrain from fruits on this day.
Breakfast: A bunch of oven roasted asparagus. Sprayed them with PAM, seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic. Baked @ 425° for about 10 minutes.
Lunch: Bowl of soup and three carrots (raw) cut up into spears
Snack: Took a nap — my head was KILLING me. Probably because I haven’t had any caffeine in the past two days.
Dinner: Baked potato (horrible irony, I could have butter on it, but I used the last butter in the house to make my daughter’s chocolate cake/frosting), sautéed mushrooms, bowl of soup
The bowl of soup with dinner did not taste good to me at all. I actually didn’t finish it. Partly because I had so many mushrooms that I was stuffed full, but also because I just didn’t want to eat the rest of it. I’m so thankful I get to eat fruit again tomorrow. The lack of sugar today was pretty rough. Especially when watching the rest of my family down a four layer chocolate/raspberry cake. I kept hold of my willpower by reminding myself that when I stepped on the scale this morning I was down FIVE pounds. I know I’ll put it all back on when I start eating “real” foods again. But that amount of weight loss in one day will (I’m sure) be my happy thought as I choke down cabbage soup the next 5 days.
