After years and years of failed dieting (my mom and Daryl can attest to this), I finally decided to have this summer as the diet-now-or-never-lose-weight-month.
Fast forward to today, it has been five days since I haven’t eaten rice (thanks to my friend, Rica, who lost a considerable amount of weight just by not eating rice). Then, I realized that I might be eating a lot of protein, and I might end up gaining more weight.
I just typed in random diet terms in Google, and voila! I decided to pursue the Southbeach Diet, just because I want to have a concrete diet plan.
It works in three phases, and before we worry about the last two phases, let me discuss the first phase first:
The first phase lasts for two weeks. Here, I would be eating meat and seafood (in my case that would be chicken, fish and seafood), vegetables, eggs, cheese (yum!) and nuts. Salad with dressing is an awesome addition to the diet too.
But, I almost cried when I saw that I couldn’t eat these things for the next fourteen days: bread, rice, pasta, fruit, anything with sugar. But I just read that I could eat gelatin! (Hello, caf gelatin)
I’m still reading on the specifics of the diet, and I’m prepping up for the next two weeks. And it’s a Sunday! What a way to start a week! :)
