Check-in Weight: 145.6.
The D is for DONE. As I wrote yesterday, the prospect of feeding my pre-diabetic body 300g net carb with a glycemic load of 151 was enough to make me quit. I won’t put myself through feeling as bad as that would make me feel when I still have four more days at work. A New Year’s Eve Banana Smoothie Tasting (featuring Chiquita Banana recipes, Kiddie Taste-Testers, and periodic blood glucose readings) might be fun.
For today, though, I have brought a spinach and kale salad with tomato, red cabbage, carrots and Caesar dressing. And a bit of shaved Parmesan cheese. And some croutons made from my last baguette (lightly fried in olive oil). Tonight will be mostly-vegetable stir fry with a bit of chicken. Tomorrow, more lovely, nutritious salad topped with a bit of stir-fried chicken, shaved Parmesan and my favorite cilantro dressing from Fresh and Easy (no croutons).
Wash. Rinse. Repeat. My body behaves better when it’s fed well, so I shall say farewell to the Eat Your Heart Out Diet and leave the natural laxative adventure that is days Five and Seven to some braver, heartier soul.
