diet day 4

Finished off yesterday without eating anything else-- but did have at least 2 more coffees. Whenever I fast or seriously restrict my food intake-- I allow myself whatever beverages I want-- including non-diet soft drinks [I prefer sugar ice tea and kool aid to soft drinks]. In the past-- because I loved coffee and cigarettes [slim Capris, as if to lessen the dependency I had on this habit] so much-- it was normally a sugar coffee with half and half.

Now it is a coffee with a teaspoon of sugar and a light whip cream. Often lots of cream. Another trick-- since I hate the combination of toothpaste and food-- I brush my teeth when I feel hungry.

That said- I am really surprised at how easy this is. I go to bed [my stomach growling] hungry-- something I used to do often. No hidden meanings here. I like discipline-- and mind over matter. With food it was always easy-- and is again [surprisingly]. However, because it took me so long to quit smoking-- I cannot preach. [Babs wants to run/interfere in my business? I can preach a whole lot.] Smoking was my greatest dependency. Sugar is another-- but I have cut that out a lot too.

Sometime ago-- I came up with a daily calorie guide-- based on the time of day and calorie consumption. I divided the day into 3 segments-- 6:00 am -10:00 am, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm and 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm. I allow myself 300 calories per segment. Of course now-- my entire daily consumption [negating drinks] is about 300 calories. I abandoned calorie time guide-- with the many problems I had toward the end of 2011.

Yes, I am already losing weight. I can see it in my face. Keep in mind-- I was in pretty good shape before I started this-- in that I averaged about 9.6 miles on my elliptical daily-- and was also toned. Restricting food intake affects muscle tone and the look of your skin. I know this of course because I used to be a faster-- and did not exercise except an occasional tennis match or leg weights and prancing around my place.

Would I rather spend 1.5 hours on a treadmill daily [walking at a fast clip]? Yes, it is simply healthier. This solution is a lot faster-- however, I am working on getting my treadmill repaired.

It's about 10:20 am here-- and I have had a small apple and 3 coffees so far. I am going to have a 300 calorie frozen entree for lunch-- and that's about all for today. I am a little bit more hyper than usual-- but not sure if it is due to no food, too much coffee or those Amazon stats.

Keep in mind-- I do not recommend this diet for anyone and hope that you will consult your doctor before starting your own high risk diet.
