Day #3 of Liquid Diet

So my lovelies, its Day Number 3 of my liquid diet and so far so good.  I thought it was gonna be harder than it has been but I actually feel full after a smoothie and its been surprising easy to stick to it.  I have had tons of energry and I have told myself not to weigh in until the 7 days are over.

I'm not sure I've been able to stick to it because I REALLY want to loose the weight (my mind in the right place) or if the smoothies are really enough to keep me feeling full and satisfied.  I did get a bit emotional and snappy last night but that could just be normal PMS.

Every time I go to the bathroom or I'm alone, I have a wee chat to myself about my extra weight and how it makes me feel and look.  I look terrible, I feel uncomfortable in my clothes and want to get back to being able to pull a pair of jeans and t-shirt on and look good - not look like a stumpy stuffed sausage.

So, I've been making smoothies and drinking loads of water, herbal tea, yogi sips and fruit juice.  I must say I don't get hungry but I have had a few cravings for textured food - substantial sustenance.  Know wot I mean?  Not just a fucking drink but chunks of stuff!

Anyhoo, on Monday I made carrot, pineapple and banana fruit smoothies and on Tuesday I made carrot, apple, banana, celery,   mango, a handful of nuts and fat-free yoghurt smoothies. 

They are really tastey but I think I'll skip on the yoghurt, as it gives it a bitter after-taste.  

I think I might just be able to stick this out for 7 days, peeps.  Lets see how it goes...

Tomorrow I'm going to try The Green Julius

  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 2 large mangoes
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 cups of ice
  • 1 apple for textures
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Wish me luck!

Good luck with it! I don't think I could go on a liquid diet. I read it can mess up metabolism and I'd cry if that happened.

You've inspired me to make a smoothie (with a side order of fries.)
Seriously, good luck, can't wait to hear how you feel. It's probably very cleansing. Now all you need to do is find a hot yoga class to sweat out the toxins! I highly recommend it!
...ok, you probably don't want unsolicited advice! But there ya have it!

Not sure it's a good idea to survive on drinks for a week but I hope it works for you as you've decided to try it. I've managed to lose 2 stone by eating healthily, three meals per day, I think really that is the only way to go for me anyway. :)

Well, here is wishing you all the luck in the world here. I hope this diet is good for you and that you get the bod in the shape you want.

I try to stick to a simple formula. Eat less, move more...there is my diet scheme. Yeah, I know, I am about as deep as a teaspoon.

I tried a liquid diet once. I got diarrhea the fifth day. It lasted three days and I had to abandon it. It was weird though, for a week, all that went in me or out of me was liquid.

I hope you do not have the same end result as I did. Good luck!
