Sacred Heart Diet Anyone?
Posted 28 June 2009 - 11:55 PM
So I took Sat and Sun off.. cheat days! I am back on board on tomarrow (Mon). I dont plan on doing all 7 days but doing it during the work week and taking weekends off.
I am sure this diet is not for everyone, but it def works for me! I feel like I have a ton more energy. I love that you can eat when ever you want. It is a little tough to eat out with friends, but in the end this weekend I barely wanted to cheat! I was so excited to get to the farmers market to get new and fresh veggies to make a new batch of soup. I know that is totally wierd but I feel great and cheating just didnt make me feel good.
For those working out----> Eat a snack before hand I work out (40 min cardio-the light weights for 20 min). If I try to so it right before my next meal it does not work. My blood sugar gets too low and I get naseous. well at least that was my experience.
Jackie- I toal =ly found myself getting cranky fast!! I just learned to eat more frequently soup or fruit or veg whatever the day called for I just ate all thru the day, snacks and meals.
Estella - I did find some extra BM's (bowel movements). However this is a cleanse and you are detoxing. I just chalked it up to every BM equalled more cleansed. I did find 2 extra BMs the first 2-3 days then it slowed down on bannna day and then more when beef day came in to play.

I think in order to keep it off is to really eat much healthier w/ LOTS of fresh fruits and veggies. I saw an episode on Oprah where they had people change for one week to eating 11lbs of food, but all of it was fresh fruits and veggies and they all lost 10+ lbs even though they had to eat 11lbs of food a day its just better for you, better nutrients, less calories, etc.
oh Erika as soon as the crankiness starts i start eating, my problem is when i get up in the morning! I can't take eating right as i get up, but i just get up cranky.

I hiked all weekend so my body is a little sore and tired to start with. But, it's also period time so I'm really curious to see if this changes my moods or eating habits at all.
Nice job Erika! If this helps my PMS at all I may try doing it a week out of every month on a regular basis. The extra energy would be really nice to have.

Then have breakfast, etc.
I lost the .2lbs I gained yesterday but didn't work out cause once again I was on the go until 10:30pm! Then I went to bed and would almost get to sleep but not quite so i got up and cleaned our office until 1 am!
I don't know that I could do this every week, but definitely once a month. Joey and I cheated a little yesterday and were dying for meat we had some veggie chix patties for lunch, it was a veggie day so we didn't feel like it was too bad, but a small cheat!

I had to have almonds and apple on a meat day because I forgot to pack meat for lunch and was feeling week.
But the energy thing is insane, I am so excited to start again today. I did a chicken stock soup with jalepenos, cilantro, and extra tomatoes so kind of mexican-ish.
Going to get a bowel of watermelon ready for breakfast

Mmmm your soup sounds good! I love how you can put seasonings as you want in it! Although I have to admit I like it much better fresh! So I've been getting up and making a new batch every morning, which was the VERY first think i did this morning after going to the bathroom!

What veggies are you all using? I'm going to try some things I haven't had in years like beets and eggplant. It's kind of fun!
