For girls and boys: Day 2 of the GM Diet, weight loss article (2.2 lbs lost!)


Last night my boyfriend at a whole DiGiorno stuffed crust pizza by himself. I’m thinking to myself, what a jerk!!! LOL. He knows I can’t eat anything but fruit on Day 1…whatever.

This morning was cool. I stepped on the scale and lost 2.2 lbs! Yay! I know its only water weight, but still it made me feel good to see the scale budge.

Day 2 of the GM Diet is supposed to be all veggies, 10+ glasses of water and one boiled potato in the morning. I had the potato, well, half of it. Not used to eating potatoes for breakfast. I finished breakfast with half a cup of peas. I like peas.

After work, I have beach volleyball. The suckiest part about this diet is that I won’t be able to join the teams after the match for wings & beer. Sad face.

Last night, all I could think about was steak. Weird, since I’m not a huge steak person. But I convinced myself to just get through day 1, and Day 2 should be easier. We shall see.

I juiced some celery so I could stand eating it…made about 20 oz of juice. I hope it cools me down for tonight’s volleyball game, it’s really hot out there. Supposedly, celery juice is supposed to cool your body temperature, so its good to eat/drink juice on hot days if you’re going to be outside.

I made a bangin’ soup because I couldn’t really think of eating salad all day without any dressing…So I will share the ingredients since I think they are all legal on Day 2 of this diet. This recipe makes one bowl (one serving)

My bangin' Pea Soup in tomato broth. Day 2 of GM Diet.

My bangin’ Pea Soup in tomato broth. Day 2 of GM Diet.

1 Cup of water

1 and 1/2 tomatoes – diced

1/3 can of peas (no salt added)

1 clove of elephant garlic – diced

1/3 red onion – diced

3-4 sprigs of fresh basil – cut up

Pepper

Throw it in all together and boil until the garlic and the tomatoes look mushy. And there you have it. Bangin’ Pea Soup with tomatoes, etc. (I bet it would taste awesome if I could have thrown in some shellfish).
