Day 3 (morning thoughts)

Today I eat nothing but fruits and vegetables.  Today I’m am a vegi-fruitarian.  Or a fruity vegetarian.  One or the other. 🙂  I can eat all the fruits and veggies I want as long as it isn’t bananas or starchy.  No potato for me tonight.

Here’s what the all the days on this diet look like, since I guess I forgot to go over that earlier.

Day 1: as many fruits as I can handle, but not bananas.

Day 2: as many veggies as I can handle, but nothing starchy, so no peas, corn, potatoes, etc.  But I do get a baked potato with butter for dinner.

Day 3: a combination of days 1 & 2, but no potato for dinner.

Day 4:  fruits and veggies, plus a couple bananas.

Day 5:  veggies again, but also fresh tomatoes (up to 6) and meat (10-20 oz)

Day 6:  veggies and meat again, but no tomatoes

Day 7:  back to day 3 again — fruits and veggies, but no bananas and nothing starchy.

The whole time, nothing to drink but water and unsweetened decaffeinated tea/coffee.  I can use a tiny little bit of artificial sweetener, but should avoid it if I can.  I can use a tiny little bit of oil, but should also avoid that if possible.  Nothing bread.  Nothing dairy (except the butter on day 2).  The point is to cleanse my system of as many things as possible, but my primary goal is to detox from sugar, white flour, and caffeine.  After I’m done, I’ll be avoiding those things as much as possible, which is going to stink, but not nearly as much as this week does.  🙂

So!  There you go!

Last night I slept for a solid 12 hours and I feel SO good.  I’m kind of hungry right now, but I’ve only eaten a grapefruit so far this morning and I should go get something more than that.  I’m thinking fondly of the other half of the acorn squash I didn’t finish yesterday, so I might go chomp on that.  Today I have to get a lot of stuff accomplished before our friend arrives this evening.  We have  a chiropractor appointment in a couple minutes and then I have to do the ironing that’s draped all over the couch and clear up all my sewing stuff that’s on the dining room table, along with a couple other projects.  It’s going to storm this afternoon, by the looks of the sky, so staying inside and cleaning up some projects should be a perfect way to spend the afternoon.

Time for me to get ready for my appointment!

  1. Who would have thought being able to have fruits AND veggies in a day would be worth celebrating, huh? 🙂 Keep up the great work!

    1. So exciting! I wasn’t bored by my food today at all! I’m looking forward to bananas tomorrow, but I’m okay with having fruits and veggies all day again. 🙂

  2. Very strange, but someone must believe it works. Sounds like awful few calories for a lot of days. Day 5 and 6 with the meat are going to be awesome. And you are almost there. Only one more day until day 5.
    You are doing great! Hope you are feeling good, too.

    1. Yeah, it’s really not a good diet as far as nutrition goes. But it’s good for a solid kick in the pants, which I really needed. I’m really looking forward to Monday (day 6). We’re going to go out and get me a big steak for dinner. 🙂
