I’m so hungry. :/

While I appreciate the results from a good healthy diet, I really, really hate the first three days of any diet. No matter how many good things I eat, I’m still craving those carbohydrates. Sugar addictions are really nasty. No wonder it’s hard to lose weight when you start a diet and your body is literally going through withdrawals. It’s a mental game. I know I’m not hungry. I’m sure of it, but my mind is saying, “Eat, eat, eat!” The good thing is that I’ve done this a number of times, so I know the first 3-4 days are the worst and then it gets better. I just have to make it these next few days.

Speaking of diets, I started Dr. Oz’s 28-day thingamajig. Today was the “Go Green” day, meaning drink green tea. So I’ve had a cup of green tea after breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I do like green tea, so this one is really easy. Apparently green tea has a number of interesting side effects. It lowers risk for some cancers, it can lower bad cholesterol, and it can promote weight loss – all awesome. Tomorrow is “Indulge in Dark Chocolate” day. I’ll let you in on a little secret – I started this one a day early. Yum.

One more funny side effect from the first day of my “cleanse” is that I have had to pee like 50 times. I must have been retaining about 5 gallons of water. Holy cow!
