Day 1 – You Diet
Our first day on the You on a Diet plan.
“This has been the worst day of my life!”
(And he’s not on it as strict as I am trying to be, LOL)
I discovered a couple of mistakes on my part. They stress the need to watch sugars, which is fine. But unfortunately, while shopping I got a couple of things that are basically no no’s. Yogurt is one – you can have probiotic yogurt. I was thrilled to discover that my favorite yogurt is in fact probiotic and proceeded to clean the store out of the product. Only to discover it’s way too high in sugar. Whoopsie. The plus side is I only ate one carton, and will go to the store tomorrow to get the correct yogurt.
The second thing I mistaked out on, is fruit. I like my citrus salad, but it comes packed in high fructose corn syrup which is a no no. This really sucks: I love the stuff and it’s easy but it provides absolutely no benefit in fiber – it’s just there. Bummer. Damn those labels!
I seemed to have enough to eat – I’m not going to list what I ate right now, but my calorie intake was 1755, Fat was 128 calories, and sugar was 90 grams.
Before I ate lunch, however, I started feeling buzzed. It was very strange. I’ve never felt this way before while dieting. I ate lunch which was a big old salad and turkey, felt a little better but then around 4:30 – 5:00 I was zoomin. I couldn’t think, I couldn’t write, and I couldn’t spell. I felt like I had just done 6 big lines of coke in quick succession and there was no more left. I decided to cook dinner, which consisted of whole wheat pasta, with chicken, broccoli and baby carrots sauteed in some olive oil pam. Felt ok after that. I’m not sure if it’s sugar withdrawal, a friend of mine seems to think so.
Note to self: find out what the daily protein, fiber, and sugar intake should be.
