I have been on the Vitamin Med diet for four weeks, I have lost ten pounds. I am good with that so far, but would love to lose more.
I had a rough week and ate alot of stuff I was not supposed to eat, a loaded baked potato at a church fundraiser on Friday, pizza and beer on Saturday, fried catfish and sweet potato fries on Monday, and a whole box of thin mint Girl Scout cookies from Monday thru Wednesday. Somehow, I still managed to lose a half a pound.
I am still horribly constipated from this diet, but last night after talking to my coach we discussed returning my beloved breakfast shake. When I woke up this morning I felt invigorated and ready to hit it hard again. I know the beans will be the fiber my body needs.
My shake, with 1/4 cup of kidney beans, a huge handful of spinach and 1/2 a banana with a cup of unsweetened almond milk was FUCKING phenomenal. It tasted so delicious. I missed it so much.
With the weather warming up, and the general constant feeling of pain in my body all but gone, I am going to start walking again.
I cannot wait, too bad its 10 degrees F. outside.
