Well, I've survived the first week on the Poon Metabolic Diet...YEAH!! Truth be told, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be in terms of cravings. I thought I would crave carbs (i.e. BREAD) and sweets but so not the case!! I really didn't miss my sandwiches, wraps, pasta, etc...and I stuck to my allowed veggies, protein & salad and I have to say I felt great during the week. A little tired but no bloating or stomach pains going on...thank goodness!
So, I know you are wondering....well what did you loose if any? I'm happy to say I lost 4.6 lbs in my first week! I'm happy with the result but most importantly, I am happy that my stomach issues were controlled (i.e. IBS).
I had a busy weekend past and didn't get to make the phase 1 recipes that Leigh has posted in her blog. So I have printed out her recipe and will stop at the grocery store on the way home tonight and pick up some ingredients and am going to make Lazy Cabbage Rolls tonight in the crock pot. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!!!! Next on my to make list is the Sheppard's Pie (with Cauliflower as the potatoe). I'm sure they will be both delish. I'll let you know how my cooking goes.
On a side note, I really should avoid stairs at all costs!! 12 weeks ago I fell DOWN the stairs and broke my tail bone and compressed my lumbar area...ouch just thinking back to that...yesterday I fell UP the stairs and ripped the nail off - seriously I should be wrapped in bubble. But I solidered on and ran with the running group last night...well hobbled...but I made it. My next run is the Meredith Hagan Foundation Inspiration Run. I'm looking forward to it. The run is a 5.6k trail run and its going to be a great day. Hopefully I'll finish in one piece - LOL. Until next time...onward I go on the Poon Train!
