Day 4 of the 7-Day Diet

Milk and Bananas?

Ok let’s give this a try. So I  decided to make a smoothie. I used about 4 bananas in addition to vanilla-flavored Almond milk and 1% milk.   I like bananas but I don’t typically like anything banana flavored. (So don’t give me a strawberry banana smoothie)  The banana smoothie was tolerable but definitely nothing I would revisit again if I didn’t have to.

Oh wait, you probably want to know if I lost more weight. Well I did, but still nothing to call home about. Only 1.2 pounds.  I’m not sure all this sacrifice is worth the progress I’m seeing.  If you’re keeping track up to this point. I’m down a total of 5.2 pounds in four days.

Back to the food…

I had a banana about 2 hours into my day. And snacked on the smoothie, literally all day.  On my way home I stopped at the grocery store to get the Lipton Onion soup mix and a can of corn for the soup.

As I was cutting up the veggies for the soup , I had about 2 cups of the almond and regular mix. It was pretty tasty. I think the vanilla flavor helped me drink two glasses. I’ve never been one to drink milk without the accompaniment of a chocolate chip cookie or a cupcake :-).

The GM soup…

I used:

  • 12 cups of water
  • 4 packets of the soup mix
  • 1 extra large onion
  • 1 extra large tomato
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 6-8 red potatoes
  • celery
  • 1 cabbage head
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • baby carrots
  • sweet canned corn
  • seasonings

I was surprised at how good the soup was and had a nice size bowl of it. My water intake was low today. About 30 ounces, I have no choice but to do better tomorrow.
