There are still tax issues in the air around my house - and I want to comfort myself with food. Made my standby comfort food - plain mashed potatoes - but mixed them half and half with baked eggplant. A small concession to dieting.
I was thinking about how good a soda and ice cream from McDonald's would be on my way home. I had it all mapped out in my head which McDonald's I was going to stop at, which way to take home, etc. But when it came time to make the turn towards McDonald's, I went the other way and went straight home. Big deal for me to pass up a drive thru urge. Proud of myself!
Start (1/9/14): 276.8
The only goal I have right now is to get my ass in gear and get the scale moving the other way!
How did the liquid diet make you feel?
Did it give you a clear head?
I wouldn't be opposed to trying it if I saw a positive benefit aside from calorie control
Thanks in advance

The liquid diet for just one day seems to work well. He doesn't say to make it low-calorie, but he says not to make it fatty and heavy stuff - don't just liquify meatloaf, for example! And it's just one day a week.
I just have soup and juices. A smoothie, too, if I have the time and items for making one. I think it does end up being lower calorie.
One other of his recommendations that I like: sip hot water throughout the day. In a mug, really hot water. It's a good way for me to get my water 'quota.'
Kathy Have you tried cutting out wheat for your muddled head? It seems to have helped mine. I know it reduces the ringing in my ears. I am going to try a liquid diet some day this week. I need to go grocery shopping. I also have company for part of the week so will have to work around that.
My accomplishment for today is coming in to work. Hard to do after a 4 day weekend. Now I need to do some work!
