I just wanted to say…Tonight I decided to “cheat.” I know how you feel about cheating, but let me just say, my “cheat” consisted of eating 2 bags of broccoli. Like I said, I know you don’t believe in cheating, but these 2 bags totaled around 30 g of carbs, and a ton of fiber, etc. Before doing the V-Diet, my cheating was just about every night, not once in a blue moon, and that cheating was me on the couch - eating a pint of ben and jerrys and an entire large sized bag of powdered donuts in one sitting, wondering why my training and long distance running wasn’t paying off. HAHAHA!
Anyway, i also wanted to mention that my roommate and his girlfriend made a batch of brownies yesterday and they both tried to convince me that I could have just one, that it wouldn’t hurt me. I politely declined, and his girlfriend got kind of upset. The next morning, I woke up and saw that she had left a plate next to my cooking pans that I use to make my morning omelet. HA! (I did not indulge).
Anyway, I guess I’m just trying to say thanks. Although I still don’t follow my diet perfectly, I can say that my “cheats” consist of almonds, or an extra serving of fruit, but NOT a pint or two of ice cream. The next thing I’m going to have to tackle is my addiction to diet sodas! V-Diet possibility? HA
