That's right, I've lost 4 pounds in the 3 days I've been on the 17-Day Diet! Whoo Hoo!
The kicker is that I won a platter of sub sandwiches from Jimmy John's yesterday. Are you kidding me? I dropped my biz card in months ago, and they call me 2 days AFTER I start a new diet? When I told the manager, who was as nice as nice can be, that I couldn't eat the sandwiches, but I'd take them and share them with my co-workers, she was extremely sympathetic. So, she offered to make me an UnWich. A what?
This is basically a lettuce wrap that's the size of a Moe's burrito...yes, it's huge! it was very filling, and I actually felt like I ate a sandwich. Who can best that? Check out the site above and you can see the nutitional value before you even order it. It's going to be a great saver for days we have to run out someplace, and need to grab a bite.
Still craving a little something sweet after dinner, but I'm getting used to ignoring it. We tried the Kefir smoothie this morning, and it was really good. Here's the recipe:
1 cup unsweetened Kefir
1 cup frozen berries
1 Tbsp flaxseed oil (we used olive oil since it's allowed and it's what we have)
1 Tbsp sugar-free fruit jam
Mix all the ingredients and blend. This is a serving of probiotics, fruit and good oils. It's a great way to start the day, and the fruit helps stave off the carb withdrawals the rest of the day.
It's just after 1pm, so I have to go eart my other serving of fruit. No carbs after 2pm! Thank goodness for email reminders!
