It's late and I just had the urge for a crunchy snack. But all I have is this glass of Maple-Cayenne-Lemonade. Here are some things I started doing when I felt like I might want to eat.
- Drink Lemonade.
- Take a Nap/go to sleep.
- Take the dog on a long walk.
So far, those three things have saved me everyday. Usually my hunger is satisfied by the cayenne in the lemonade. The other part of eating that I miss is the planning, cooking and preparing.
So far, I have gone into a grocery store and had a meeting in a cafe. In retrospect, I realize those are pretty stupid things to do while doing this diet/cleanse thing. But I honestly wasn't tempted. Mostly I miss the concept of coffee. And I'm bummed cause I have this awesome tomato that is gonna go bad if someone doesn't eat it soon - and it's not going to be me.
At last count, I was down 4 pounds. I assume it was water/fecal weight. (TMI right.) But that's just after 2 days. Now that I've completed day 3, it's just a game to see how long I can keep this up.
