5 pounds in 4 Days??

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

About a month back I was listening to Dr. Ian Smith on the radio talking about his new book, “The 4-Day Diet”. The radio hostess said she had tried the diet and seen success. As he continued to talk about what’s involved it seemed like something I could try, so I got the book.

It didn’t take me too long to get through the part before the day-by-day plan. It was mostly about how you feel about yourself, your goals, eating habits etc. I had attempted a few weeks ago to start but just wasn’t feeling it.

So I started up yesterday and I wanted to keep ya’ll posted on my progress and mainly to see if this thing really works.

Day 1-6/1/09

The menu consisted of mostly veggies, salad, some type of bean, brown rice, at least four servings of fruit and powdered fiber to add to water or lemonade, plus 40 minutes of cardio

Breakfast: Yogurt w/ blueberries (for my serving of fruit)

Snack: Celery sticks & Banana

Lunch: Black beans and brown rice

Snack: Banana, a few almonds & one apple

Dinner: Salad with sprouts onion and tomatoes & 2 small pieces of cod

Now the almonds and cod were not part of the plan. I couldn’t resist the cod because my grandmother made it and it’s always SO good. Also I drank HELLA water. I mean I couldn’t count the number of times I went to el bano at work. I was supposed to do 40 minutes of cardio and I was going to get up at 5am to do it but…yeah my bed said no. I would have done it later but it was 95 degrees in STL yesterday and I probably would have died of heat stroke if I went running outside.

Oh and like a dummy I forgot to weigh myself on my Wii last night because I’m sure that info will be pertinent in this journey so I’ll have numbers for you later tonight.

So give you an update at the end of today to see how it went, but so far so good!
