Cheat Your Way Thin diet ~ **guide available to download in post #45**

Recommended Posts

great Sylvie - make sure to keep us posted on how you're doing!

 

So it was my first day back on the diet after being off for months! I feel hungry right now but that's because I've been used to eating crap all day long! I actually do feel good and I know that this does work for me. It is a little bit more work with all the planning but I know that I can do this!!!

 

how was everyone else's day?

Hey girl, today was my 2nd day of no carbs and it was OK. Last week was my frist week back and it was HARD on the sunday & monday.

 

I had cucumber tomatoes and broccoli dipped in Hidden Valley low fat ranch which is amazing and helps me get over the Sun/Mon days. I also have been adding beets to my salads for a bit of a sweet taste that helps on low carb days. I try not to have too many b/c I think they are more like low GI, but a srpinkling on a salad wont ruin the day.

 

I am going to have sushi lunch tomorrow - miso soup and then seawedd salad and sashimi. So good for low GIs/low carbs.

 

You can totally do it Lisa - you know the first week is the hardest!!!

 

I love your siggy picture. Congratulations!

Today was day 3 for me and I find that I'm hungry every 3-4 hours so I do need to eat that often, I guess it's because I'm just not eating as much at every meal. I think I need to be more creative though. My biggest challenge is figuring out what to eat instead of fruit. I use to eat 3-4 pieces a day and I'm really missing it, veggies just aren't the same! Snacking on nuts has been my saving grace!

You can also try cheese and lunchmeat. Or tuna salad and carrot sticks or celery for a snack. I also like cottage cheese and fruit for a quick snack. For the low GI days I usually have salads with beans for lunch and some sort of bean side dish at dinner. You can also try chickpeas with chopped onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, and a vinegrette dressing.

Thanks for the tips, I will definitely be considering some of those.

 

So...I've already encountered my first road bump in this journey! On Friday night I'm attending a pub crawl that I organized for my work (I'm on a social committee) so I don't see how I can get away with not drinking and having some munchies! I think I'm going to try and limit myself to one drink at each pub and maybe have some wings (would they be considered okay on this diet or are they too high in fat?). What do you guys think of my plan? Do you have any other ideas how I go about not totally spoiling the day?

Deb - I would def only have one drink. As for the wings, those are full of fat and deep fried! A fancy salad or fajitas would be better!

 

So far this week, things have been ok. Monday was great with no cheating. Yesterday, I had a few cookies that someone at work brought in and today, well there was cake! But I'm sticking to the rest of the diet, so technically I should still lose some weight. AHHHH I LOVE FOOD!!!!!!

Deb - on friday you will be on low fat/ high carb day - so its hard to do munchies at a pub. You could always make Friday your cheat day and then add an extra low carb or GI carb day in the middle of the week.

 

I find wine is OK on this diet but beer is not - makes me gain/not lose. I dont really drink liquor (unless they are shots bought by one of my naughty friends).

 

Lisa - your work is bad!!!! Maybe you guys all need to start a wellness initiative!

you could be really good and drink a non alcoholic bevergae every other drink - and if its like diet soda maybe the bubbles will make you full? I have tried that before but I love drinking and eating so its very hard for me:) Just had a glass of wine with dinner...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
