For Day 2 you are only allowed vegetables. You are encouraged to eat until you are stuffed with all the raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. There is no limit on the amount or type. For your complex carbohydrate, you will start day two with a large baked potato for breakfast. You may top the potato with one pat of butter. Another note is that vegetables as may be taken in the form of a salad if desired. No dressing except malt, white or wine vinegar, squeezed lemon, garlic, herbs. And no more than one tea spoon of oil.
With Day 2 you are starting with a fix of complex carbohydrates coupled with an oil dose. This is taken in the morning for energy and balance. The rest of day two consists of vegetables which are virtually calorie free and provide essential nutrients and fiber. LOTS of fiber haha!

This 7 day diet seems to be more of a detox. Cleansing your body of all the bad stuff and putting in LOTS of good stuff. The first day (which I am on NOW) consists of eating ONLY fruits except bananas. And it recommends eating lots of melons (watermelon and cantaloupe). Mostly because they are a lower calorie fruit and it will help you lose more weight. One tiny problem for me with that is, I am HIGHLY allergic to watermelon. Yes, I know, it's weird.. With day 1, you are preparing your system for the upcoming program. Your only source of nutrition is fresh or canned fruits. Fruits are nature’s perfect food. They provide everything you could possibly want to sustain life except total balance and variety.
While on this diet, I will also be exercising 1 1/2 to 2 hours. For today I am sticking with cardio, keeping my heart rate up and burning those calories!! I will keep everyone updated each day on how it goes and how much weight i ultimately lose!! Wish me luck!!!
I have been looking up this "diet" and came across this tumblr page that has a whole lot more information and explanations. So far I have lost 3 lbs from day one (yesterday). I am guessing A L
OT of this weight is water weight. And a lot of the weight you are going to use IS water weight. Bring on Day 2!!!
The first thing I'm going to start blogging about?? Well I've lost most of the baby weight but I still have about 15 lbs I'd like to shed. Be on the look out for new posts about diet, exercise, and me cursing out my big butt/ab flab!! Let's get back to blogging!!!!!

Hey everyone! Sorry for being MIA lately, but Im finally down to my last week of pregnancy and have been SUPER busy getting things ready..I've literally been a nesting whore (yea that totally describes me). I've been cleaning, baking, and getting the last minute necessities for this little guy! How I'm still carrying this judge belt around, I have no idea...Due date is set for the 23rd but everyone is saying he's coming this next week. My wonderful friends even have a pot going on this! So we will see..
I will be out for a little while being a new mom and adjusting. I'd say around 2 weeks and I should be back at it. Thank you everyone for your support and well wishes! Ill be sure to post pictures of the while family once he's here :)

Last week, hubby came home raving about how one of his co-workers makes some mean Jasmine rice. Like it's that hard to make...I'm a huge fan of Mexican rice, but I'm open minded and hubby isn't a big rice eater so it surprised me he liked it so much. And it's obviously healthier, which I don't mind one bit! His co-worker chef just uses butter with the rice but I decided to take it up a notch (watch out Emeril) and add some turmeric to make it more of a Thai dish. Which complimented perfectly with our rice noodle soups (which were gluten free btw). YUM!!

Thanks to Pinterest though, I found a way to make my own reusable produce bag that I can take with me to the Farmer's Market. And it's out of OLD T-SHIRTS. Yay for being
