2 shake and a salad diet.

I have a had a few good days, enjoying my bffs company. It was sad to see her leave.. But I'm afraid it was also a relief. We have had a great time.. Did a looot of shopping.. Well she bought the stuff.. I am NOT gonna buy a single more peiece of clothing until I am less FAT.. I did however try on this amazing wonderful wedding dress.
It looked good on me.. And it felt like it was it.. The perfect dress.. BUT it does cost almost twice as much I was thinking about spending on the dress. Well not the dress in it self but the whole sett with the veil and so on. I am gonna try it on again in 3 weeks, and see how it feels. And if I still love it.. I might just get it.. Why in 3 weeks?? Well, basicly.. I can't wait longer than that to order the dress. They needed 3-4 weeks to deliver it.. And I am hoping to be a couple of dress sizes smaller by then. I was so blowded and fat yesterday when I tried the dress on that everything was just sticking out... yuck.. 

As much as I love my bff.. But she is one of those nonestop eaters.. She HAS to eat often.. And she was sippy if I didnt join her. I purged a couple of times.. But having her and my fiance around didn't really give me the chance to get rid of the rest of food.. And with no gym I have been feeling huger and huge.. I have gained a whole lot of weight.. But ya I am not going to care.. I am gonna leave it all behind me and just look at this as a yet another but a final restart. I needed some girl time and I guess thats just how it is.. Anyways.. 

I am going to do Rusty's 2 shake and a salad diet the next upcomming 3 weeks. This is how it works: 
  • Drink a 30-40 gram meal replacement shake for breakfast.
  • Drink a 30-40 gram meal replacement shake for lunch.
  • Eat a salad for dinner with 1-2 chicken breasts and vinegar based dressing (I like rice vinegar).
  • If you are especially hungry, eat an apple after dinner.
  • If you are still hungry, eat a cup of cottage cheese before bed.
My protein shake has 103 calories per portion. So that is a total of 206 calories until dinner. For the salad I am going to mix grilled chicken filet with lettuce but also have a portion of some sort of green veg on the side. That will be a 300 calories at most. Even with some fruit later at night will the total intake be less than 600 calories. 

This is what Rusty is giving as an exemple on how a good option for a salad is: 

  • 1 medium head of lettuce: 55 calories – 5 grams of protein
  • 1 medium bag of lettuce: 45 calories – 3 grams of protein
  • 1 boneless chicken breast: 80 calories – 16 grams of protein
  • 1 hard boiled egg: 80 calories – 6 grams of protein
  • 1 ounce of cheddar cheese: 115 calories – 7 grams of protein
  • 1 dozen almonds: 90 calories – 5 grams of protein
  • 1 medium carrot: 25 calories – 1 gram of protein
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil: 40 calories – 0 grams of protein
I don't like cheddar and the idea of the fat is just making me very ill.. Almonds might be good but I just don't like them in my salad, I'd prefer having seeds instead of nuts, so i guess that is out of the picture. I like hard boiled egg but on a piece of bread or on its own, never in my salad. But ya maybe it's not a bad idea of having it on the side. I dunno. I might have it from day to day, but atm I think I want to keep it simple. 

Oh and I know for a fact that I will be soo hungry hehe, but I found this post which will make it "easier" I guess. Embrace Hunger and Hunger Pains While Dieting... Catchy.. Isn't it? 

Anyways.. 3 weeks from today goes fast. Then it will be a week of a bit more food, before I hop on the it again. I will also keep going to the gym as I used to. To get my HIIT up and get more endurance. 


So my brain has been working overtime lol.. Work and such.. But I can't get this off my head.. So here it goes..

- There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat
- My current BMR is 2843- 19901 per week..(  My goal weight BMR is 2010 which means 14070 per week )
- With the two shake and a salad diet, and a piece of fruit a day, not couting the gym my weekly intake will be
around 5000 calories
So with no gym I will be on a - 14901 cal per week.. That is a tad over 4 lb fat per week.

Is it just me or is it very very very little? I hope that it will be more.. Alot more... heh..
