Day 2- Not too bad...

So I'm in the 2nd day now of my very modified diet.  So far so good, for the most part.  I actually don't feel too bad, compared to the last time I tried to do a "cleansing" diet that was similar to this.  I felt horrible on that one.  I started to get pretty hungry last night, which I'm trying to avoid.   I thought that when I woke up in the morning today I would be ravenous, but I wasn't.

Yesterday here is what I ate:

Breakfast:  2 egg omelet with spinich & tomatoes
Lunch:  Green salad w/romaine, cucumber, and tomato
Dinner:  2 eggs, and a cucumber.

I know.  Boring.  And not enough calories.  I didn't have much in my fridge, ready to start this, but I wasn't going to put it off!  I was able to grab a few things at the store yesterday, and today is somewhat better. 

Here's a pretty good summary of the foods I can eat right now:


The only thing I'm taking off of the list for right now is yogurt (for 4 weeks).  But hopefully I'll be back on that soon.  I'm going to check & see if Real Foods carries a raw milk yogurt.  Do they even make that?  Kefir, maybe?  That would be a nice addition, so I'm going to check that out soon.


  1. I'm sure there is a raw milk yogurt out there somewhere. You might have to research it online, but if Good Earth doesn't have one available, they could special order it for you, or your local grocery store might even special order it for you if they know you'll buy it from them.

  3. Sis,
    We have been eating brown rice for over 2 years now. Love this stuff. It's not much more expensive than white rice. The transition was way better than I thought it would be. Kids adapt very quickly to it.
    We now avoid to eat beef if you can. I use ground turkey to make lasagna, spaghetti and all and it taste awesome. I think it's about the spices that we add in the food.
    Fish is so awesome, rich of good stuff and healthy too.
    It'll be a change but a good change in the way we it. I would make it a change for the whole family to follow, instead of just for one person. It sure makes the process easier on us. It becomes a LIFESTYLE not just a DIET.
    You can do it, Sis. We are with you 100%.
