I am more convinced than ever of the VITAL part water (along with coffee and tea - at least in my case) plays in this protocol. By all rights and means, I should not have lost this much due to the deviations I've made from the VLCD. But - I've kept my water intake over 2 liters every day along with 3-5 cups of coffee and still lost. I'm not saying that my good fortune will continue if I don't get my act together, but at least at this early stage of the "game" I've still been able to lose.
So yesterday I ate my egg and mushroom concoction - not too shabby. Then, I picked up my daughter and made her dinner. *blinkblinksmile* Things went downhill from there.
So again - not a perfect day, and I still lost over half a pound. My luck won't continue to be this good, but I'm thankful for now. My menu thus far today:
B: strawberries and coffee
L: 1 egg + 2 whites and about 2 cups (one large handful) of baby spinach seasoned liberally with Herbamare.
This is another reason I wish nay-sayers would check their facts. We can eat two cups of organic baby spinach (according to the package) and only consume ten calories. I don't know about you, but two cups of spinach pretty well fills me up. Then add your protein, fruit and grissini if you so choose, and I don't see how I'm so malnourished. Ah, well. Those that really want to know will figure it out. ;)
That's pretty much it for today! I'll be making the rounds after I bring my dog in for her shots. :P
