On a diet again...

HA! Fooled ya! i already started this diet on July 25th and I didn’t want to blog about it; because, come on….how many OF my blogs are dedicated to a diet? 7,487, THAT’S how many. And to blog about this one would probably curse it so why take the chance? (by the way, the diet uses HCG so that keeps your body from going in to starvation mode)

I had heard about this particular diet a few months ago but I also heard you couldn’t drink alcohol and you could only eat 500 calories a day. Ain’t no way I could do either. So I did the low-carb thing again and only lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks, only to gain back 3 over a wine night!! I said ‘fuck it’ and checked out the diet anyway.

It is now 30 days later and I have lost 25 pounds. No other diet in the last 15 years has been so amazing in results. And now, my hypothalamus has been reset and so has my metabolism. I will now able to eat a reasonable amount of food with a bad day or two here and there and NOT gain weight.

I’m not quite through this diet yet, i have 3 more 500 calorie days and then will low-carb it for 21 days (called Phase 3), eat regularly for 2 weeks and go back on Phase 2 for 3 more weeks and should have reached my goal weight of 135.

I feel so amazing, so proud and I look really good. I’ve accomplished something that I set out to do and that’s not always me. I’m hoping I’ve turned a new leaf because my life needs a new direction.
