I'm not on the diet. But I just had lunch with a friend who is. And yes, she's lost 9 pounds in 11 days. But at what cost?
I don't even know how much she's paying, so I mean the figurative cost. She's taking some hormone that is supposed to mimic what a woman's body produces after pregnancy, like to help the body shed the baby weight? Which, I can't think is good for a person, but whatever.
And then she's only allowed to eat 500 calories a day. 500 A DAY! I just wanted to grab her and shake her. I mean, come on. Anybody will lose weight at the start on only 500 calories a day.
She can only eat like grilled chicken, fish, or shrimp and fresh fruits and veggies. Oh, and melba toast (????) So, you can imagine, eating a meal out with her was a joy. In her defense, they screwed up her order, twice. I mean, when you ask for no dressing on the salad, you mean no dressing.
Then she proceeded to sit there and drool over the pasta somebody nearby was eating. And the dessert menu so cruelly placed in front of us. I was at least kind enough to order a salad as well, though I cheerfully enjoyed the dressing on mine. I refrained from ordering the new pasta on Applebee's menu that is topped with provolone cheese filled meatballs.
Anyway, I am not on this diet, and I'm not going on this diet, and I have not lost 9 pounds in 11 days (or in 100 days). Any of you tried it?
I consider writing blip-its about myself a form of torture, but can talk about my interests, plans, dreams, and ideas for hours. I'm 37 years old, hapily married and mother to one human child and two dogs. My life, career, and eating habits are ever-evolving. I would like to lose about 30+ pounds and still be able to enjoy food and life.
I'm 41 years old, single, and I live with two dogs and two cats. I'm experimenting with semi-vegetarianism and recently gave up diet soda. I work from home, hate sports, love junk food, and would like to lose about 50 pounds. And win the lottery.
