Perhaps the most effective diet for me in losing weight is the no-carb diet. Nope, it is not low-carb diet, but no-carb diet. And no sugar, too.
Waaaa….I was not able to complete the whole two weeks. I just couldn’t take it anymore. But I did it for 10 days and lost 11 lbs. That was really good. I was really slender….then I got pregnant.
Now I want to do it again. But it is very difficult. And I can’t control myself. Tsk. tsk.
Anyway, what I ate mostly was eggs, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, bean sprouts, and tofu. No rice, bread, sweets, and even fruits. My beverages were all sugar-free. When I had a craving for sweets, I chewed on sugar-free gum that had watermelon flavor. That was tough but I lost the weight that I needed.
At the end of 10 days, I was happy and rewarded myself with a glass of strawberry milk shake from McDonalds.
I was able to maintain that weight at 100 lbs. But then I got pregnant. And now, I am just super duper overweight at 125 lbs. But I can no longer reason out that it was because of pregnancy. Nope, this is really food consumption we are talking about. I was a lot thinner a few months after giving birth. I went down to 105 lbs. already but then I gained 20 lbs. again. Too bad. So it’s no longer pregnancy. It’s lifestyle.
Now I want to do the no-carb diet again. Do I still have the will power? Let us wait and see. God really do help me on this one. I cannot do it alone. I am so weak.
