Cleo + 0.6, Tony nil. Today I feel fat. Like I feel my stomach is sticking out – fat. I did a whole bunch of things wrong yesterday. First, I didn’t drink my first-thing-in-the-morning water and lemon. I didn’t even drink all my water, and most of it was really late in the day. Second, I didn’t eat according to plan. I ate out (sushi), I ate untested foods and lots of it. Lastly, I ate ice cream and I ate it after dinner. I also had a bit of a stomach ache all morning. So, there’s no surprise I’m up 0.6 lbs. Out of all the things I did wrong I bet the weight gain and stomach can be attributed to the ice cream. Tony, on the other hand did everything right, and tested only one thing – eating out for sushi. Having no weight gain is a great result, and this tells us he’s not reactive to our favorite Japanese meal.
Today we are testing two animal proteins in one day. 2 oz for chicken at lunch (and watching our energy levels in the afternoon) and a different approved animal protein at supper. The only other approved animal protein we have is beef, so we’re breaking the beef once a week rule.
Poor Tony! He forgot his chicken at home, so he had a protein-less lunch. He get beef and chicken for supper. The book says not to substitute foods within a set menu because it messes with the “chemistry” of their meal plan. Well, I just can’t do it today (again). Lunch is suppose to be sauteed kale with vegetables, and I made it with broccoli. Then dinner is suppose to mixed greens and broccoli. That’s too much broccoli for one day. I make beet and carrot salad instead. I hope this doesn’t cause a chemical imbalance.
