Day Three. This one came with a temptation that isn’t listed in the diet plan. Eating out. I stuck with an appetizer and a glass of wine, since I don’t think Leandro would approve of me eating a whole pizza and drinking a couple of beers.
Overall, my energy level stayed consistent throughout the day. I felt rather good and am surprised I’m not moody or snappy at all.
Three egg whites, a half cup chopped spinach, reduced fat cheddar cheese and salsa.
Finally, cheese! I’ve been craving this. While the 1/4 cup amount listed was not exactly what I would normally eat, it did the trick. As with other breakfasts in this plan, the three egg whites had a very small volume and were gone in a couple of minutes. The spicy salsa I added gave it a very needed kick.
One cup cubed watermelon and a string cheese
More cheese! Yes! Thank you!
Grilled Chicken Breast Salad
I used a chicken breast pre-seasoned with a zesty italian dressing for a little more taste. It turned out very well. A salad every day for lunch though is getting a little tiring.
Ok, here is where I decided to go out. I went to California Pizza Kitchen and fortunately, they have a small portions meal. However, I had the tuscan hummus and a few pita chips from the appetizers menu instead. This was definitely more calories than the edamame that was suggested, but hey, at least I controlled myself and didn’t go eat a half of a pizza. ….and I’ll admit, I had a glass of red wine, too. It’s healthy for your heart, right??!!
Broiled Swordfsh with Zucchini and Squash
I modified this meal. My grocery store didn’t have swordfish, so I cooked up some chilean sea bass instead. I also dislike zucchini, so I subbed some corn. I almost forgot how excellent chilean sea bass is. This has been my favorite meal of the diet so far.
Here’s the link to it on amazon.com if you’re interested. The reviews paint a pretty good picture of what to expect.
Check out all the days!
