Day 5 of the 7-Day Diet

Woke up this morning feeling great and not tired. This of course happens on the weekend but never during the week when I just beg for morning to come later rather than sooner and usually wake up exhausted.

I gained weight!

I weighed myself and almost screamed in frustration. I’m actually up almost a 1/4 of a pound. Seriously?!?! I gained weight!

This is discouraging to know that restricting my normal diet resulted in adding weight. Maybe it was the potatoes in the soup I don’t know but I’ll be eating around the potatoes now.

For breakfast I cooked two of the three beef products I had purchased from Whole Foods for this diet/cleanse. I seasoned it well and added a lil Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the pan to avoid sticking.

I’m not  very knowledgeable about cuts of beef in general, but from what I heard on the news recently the names of the beef  and pork cuts will be changing to make it more consumer friendly.

I ended up only eating one of the steaks it was so tasty but I a used half a teaspoon of A1 Steak sauce because I just love that stuff.  And I made one egg to go along with it. So I cheated a little but at this point I’m not sure it’ll make much difference in the program. I also had a little soup and a tomato while I was cooking the steaks.

For dinner I had more beef and a bowl of soup. I won’t have the 6 whole tomatoes recommended on the plan but the soup contains several tomatoes so hopefully I’ll have had enough.

Water intake should increase from 80 ounces to 112. I’ll try my best to get as close to 112 as possible. But it’s not looking good.

  1. I you struggle to drink enough: always have a 0,75 liter bottle with you, filled with wather. That actually helps ME a lot. I drink up to 6 liters a day… (~200 ounces…)

  2. I don’t think you are supposed to have potatoes except for Day 2 in the morning. That might be why. I have one of those Brita water bottles that I carry with me at all times so that i can fill it up with water from any sink and it automatically purifies the water! Good job so far though! Today is my last day! I’m so happy!

  3. If you’re weighing yourself every day, don’t get discouraged if you’re heavier than the day before (especially if it’s as small as a 1/4 of a pound!). Your weight can fluctuate by the smallest of things – time you ate your last meal, how much water you drank the day before, etc.
