Day 2 went better than day 1. I made sure I had lots more food to eat. It’s a full-time job, just getting food prepped to eat.
The books said you’d likely lose 3-5 pounds in water weight the first week or so. I woke up a few times in the middle of the night having to go. I was down 2 pounds on the scale this morning.
I discovered the joy of dates. They’re pretty tasty, a nice treat.
Breakfast was chicken, fruit and carrots.
Jerky as a snack.
Lunch was chicken on lettuce, carrots, soup, and a few cherries.
Another snack of jerky.
Dinner was hamburgers. Now I have to say that getting lean (93% fat free) ground beef made for a hockey puck of a hamburger. We’ll have to figure out how to get that easier to chew and more flavorful. The answer may lie in meatloaf, although eggs and tomatoes are currently our for me for 28 more days, so I’m not sure I can make that any less of a hockey puck.
My RA seemed a smidge better today. It might be coincidence, as it has its ebbs and flows.
