Day 8 – Bread (and beer)

Cleo – 0.8, Tony +0.6.  After one short week, I’ve lost 6.1 lbs and Tony has lost 10.2 lbs. Bastard.  Actually, I’m quite happy.  Normally if someone told me they lost that much in seven days, I’d think that their crash diet was crazy and they’d gain it back in no time.  But I know how much I’ve been eating (a lot) so I have no concerns.

Whoo hoo!  Non-reactive to gelato.  I’m thrilled.  Tony is not.  And he didn’t even eat gelato.  Not only is he up, but he’s also has a stomach ache and is constipated.  We take a close look at yesterday’s meals.  We added potato chips, but I don’t really think that’s what’s bugging him.  I think it’s last nights sauteed veggies.  It was mostly broccoli and I think it was just too much broccoli for him.  We’ll have to test it again.

Bread.  Today we get white or wheat bread.  I really don’t follow Lyn-Genet on this one.  It is the opposite of everything I understand about grains.  No multi-grain because she only wants to test wheat.  But white bread?  Isn’t that enriched bleached flour bad for us? She says if we’re getting enough fiber in our diet, then one piece of white bread should be ok.  She also says it’s the gluten that’s hard to digest, and regular breads are made from lower gluten flour.  I don’t know about that, but I’m happy to eat a big slice of fluffy white bread.

Lunch is so good!  A slice of bread with goat cheddar, zucchini slices, avocado and pumpkin seeds.  Plus vegetables.

And finally, supper is not exactly as listed.  Lyn-Genet says we can switch days around or trade lunch for dinner but we can’t mess with the “balance” of one day’s foods.  Well, sorry Lyn-Genet but company’s coming, and company doesn’t eat broccoli.  Oh the horror!  Instead of spinach and sauteed chard, broccoli, carrots, and zucchini, we have beet and carrots salad and zucchini.  Noooooo!!!!  We’re ruin everything!

Tony decides that a wheat beer is the same as a bread, since it they have the same ingredients.  Only Tony could come up with that logic.  So he treats himself to one pint.
