Today at work I had a meeting where the team sat around a HUGE jar of licorice all-sorts and slowly demolished the lot. I am so proud of myself for not even having one. I love licorice. Anything licorice and I am there. I even remember my favourite ice-cream flavour when I was little – licorice. I kid you not. Licorice root tea is one of my fav’s in the afternoon, but of course I am not allowed that on this draconian eating plan – yes I’m a little pissed off with the lack of choice today.
I am sure it’s some kind of test or training to get you into a mode for maintenance – which Dr Rensburg has assured me is way harder than actually losing all this weight. OH GREAT!
So tonight when I got home all I could think about was having dinner. With the limited amount of ingredients I went for spinach, mushrooms and tomato that I cooked down into a little ratatouille with chili. I teamed that with the usual 95 grams of veal. All cooked with no oil or fat of any kind. And yes, that is a normal size plate so you can get a sense of how little food there actually is.
Good news is I am full. Very full. My tummy has been playing up a little bit over the past few days. It feels very bloated. Ever since I ate that little bit too much cabbage. Cabbage has never really been my friend, but its filling and that’s what I was going for. Oh well, you live and, hopefully learn.
Tomorrow I will have a full breakfast and fast until Thursday morning – weigh-in day. I don’t feel like I have lost any weight this week (I think this has to do with me feeling bloated), but given how much I have consumed over the past week, there is no way I cannot have lost something.
Time will tell.
