It’s day three and I’m still feeling pretty good. I’ve had a mild headache almost consistently, but surprisingly I haven’t had any serious cravings.
I’ve been eating a lot of carrots and yesterday I had a bowl of pinto beans for lunch. Then around 3:00 p.m. I had a carrot, celery, beet, spinach juice and a carrot juice. 32 ounces of vegetable juice and I was feeling pretty good. I skipped dinner and drank lots of water. I just wasn’t hungry. Erin and I went to Barnes and Noble and then we came back to my house and watched American Idol. I like to keep busy when on a diet or else you get tempted when you get bored.
Part of the reason for doing this detox is to lose weight quickly. After not losing weight even though i was trying to follow the guidelines in “The Abs Diet” I knew I had to do something drastic. Some people say that your body will hold on to fat because it is toxic and that is why a detox works. Also, when you are eating less than 1200 calories a day then you are bound to lose some pounds.
I plan to increase my caloric intake today and do some work in the yard and garage and so I will need the extra carbs.
I’m doing this for my wallet because I have 7 pair of dress pants that don’t fit me. I could go out and buy some more, but what would be the point? My pants cost close to 100 dollars a pair. I buy these cashmere/wool dress pants from the big and tall store. They look nice, but they are expensive. Anyway, I have 3 pair that I bought and I have never been able to wear because they were too tight. I don’t know if they picked up the wrong ones when the store sent them to the tailor if if somehow in the 3 days it took for me to pick them up I put on 10 pounds. Who knows, all I know is that I spent 300 bucks on pants I’ve never gotten to wear. I need to get down to 330 or so before they will fit.
