Holy shat, how did I get so fat???

Like every national and religious holiday, this afternoonI ate way too much. I feel ill. Did I really need a cheeseburger w/ a bun, corn on the cob, pasta salad, lettuce salad w/ thousand island, chips, pretzels, strawberry shortcake, and two non-light beers? It's not even 6:00 and I've probably got room for something else. I'm not counting the cold pizza I ate for breakfast. This has got to stop!

As of Tuesday morning, I shall try YET ANOTHER DIET. This time it will be the 'Candida diet'--nothing to do with Voltaire, believe me. The list of acceptable foods is as follows:

--High fiber low starch vegetables such as: broccoli, celery, radish and asparagus. Plenty of fresh steamed veggies: especially onions, garlic, ginger root, cabbage and broccoli. Onions and garlic are very good anti-fungals.

--High protein foods such as: antibiotic free fish, fowl, nuts, seeds and eggs.
10% complex carbohydrate; rice, beans, millet, amaranth, quinoa and buckwheat.

--Fruit: papaya, pineapple, grapefruit and all types of berries. Other acceptable foods are sea foods and sea veggies, olive oil, eggs, mayonnaise, white rice, soy and vegetable pastas, white rice cake and crackers, some citrus fruit, herb teas and unsweetened cranberry juice.

Maybe I'll start tracking my (hopeful) weight loss weekly on this 'blog. Kate has been doing this diet since December and has shed 15 lbs.

This is true! I lost 15 lbs thus far. It all started when my best friend went on this diet, it was just much easier for us to go out to eat and to the bar if we ate the same things. I have been on it for 6 months and she has been on it for 7. In the begining I would only lose like a pound every month, but it made my TMJ feel better so I stuck with it. When Jen and I gave blood this weekend they asked for your weight - I felt vindicated in lying by 5 pounds - who cares we all know I weigh more than 110 anyway! When I got home I decided to get on Satan's torture device (aka the scale) only to find that I didn't lie at all!
This diet allows your body to lose what it thinks is necessary.

Satan's torture device has me right on target (for going to hell! Just kidding), but it's a far cry from 110. That's really skinny. If I weighed any less, my blood pressure would be peanuts/smaller peanuts, and I'd faint if my head was 1 degree above my body. I'm happy with my current weight, but have to maintain low-carb-ness to keep it. Yay, "Atkin's lifestyle". :|

Good luck on your diet, Jen!
