I'm a firm believer in eating healthy and staying active to maintain ones weight. I also think traditional methods of losing weight (reduce calorie intake and work out MORE) are definitely the way to go, however...
Drastic times call for drastic measures (rather procrastination means quick fix is necessary) and I find myself just weeks away from visiting old friends and seeing a lot of old classmates that I haven't seen in years. While my weight does not to be adjusted to please the close friends I am going to visit, the fact that I will be seeing people I haven't seen since HS is a little motivating. Even worse, I saw a lot of these people 3 months after the birth of my daughter and weighed 20 pounds LESS, so I have NO excuse.
Celebrities do these crash diets all the time. They slip away to some spa , and show back up skinny and toned. So why not ME? I do not plan on making it a regular habit, but if it works...maybe every 6-12 months?
I have a neighbor who's husband received this diet from a Cardiologist while he was helping build a local hospital. I'm not sure how the conversation went, but the cardiologist was nice enough to give him the diet that they give heart patients that need to lose a quick 20 before surgery. I'm skeptical about it actually removing a full 20 pounds, it seems as though it would be relative to the amount you actually need to lose. I really need to lose 6 pounds to bring my BMI to within acceptable levels, but 20 would be even better.
I don't know what the diet is called, but I ate a crap load of eggs and grapefruit yesterday and continue today. I'll keep you posted and see if this miracle diet works, at least short term. My neighbor swears by it.
And apparently so does the guy who uploaded this picture (I found on Google images) titled: My Lunch
Because that is EXACTLY what is on the menu for MY lunch today.
