Have you heard about the 17 day diet? I have been on it since Monday and lost 2 pounds already. It is basically a low carb diet where you drink green tea at each meal- have no fruit after 2pm, make sure to have yogurt daily...eat lots and lots of lean protein and lots of veggies. Each 17 day cycle is a little different (there are 4 cycles) and I think that you can add foods back in each cycle.
I love it when I am on a program- it makes it easier to diet- just follow the rules. No calorie counting, no guessing about what I am going to eat. Oh! And you start the day with a glass of warm water and the juice of one lemon.
Green tea is my friend...with truvia (made from stevia) instead of sugar. Salad is my friend....I have not been hungry on this diet. I think I can last all 17 days...((I think I can, I think I can)) it has helped that I lost a pound right off the first day.
The fried turkey patties are my "treat" :)
Oh yeah- this was a good one....chicken, lettuce, olive oil, lemon juice, pepper...and just for fun- carrot sticks!!! Do you think I'm crazy?
And for dessert- BROCCOLI DELIGHT!
It is all for you, Darlin'....all for you :)
(thank you to my mom for starting me down this way of thinking and then my friend who sent me the 17 day info and my walking partner who has lost 17 pounds on a low carb diet...I would also like to thank my sponsor...Lipton Green Tea........:)
