Want to lose weight, fast?

Sometime 2003, I tried doing a "Cleansing Diet" that made me lose 50lbs in 2 weeks.

What's on the menu?

The 1st week...

No beef, pork, fish, chicken & anything cooked. Only fresh vegetables, fruits and lots of water. And water should be the alkaline kind.

A word of caution though if you want to try this. Don't mix vegetables with fruits in one sitting. I mean, if you'll have vegetables for breakfast, just eat vegetables. If you'll have fruits for lunch, just eat fruits. Why? Because fruits are easier to digest than vegetables and you might not want to confuse your system. But, you can eat as many fruits & vegetables you want.

How about the seeds? Yes, if you think you can eat it the seeds then go ahead. Tip#1: Eat seeds like a bird. Tip#2: Love your blender.

Drink lots of water too.

First two days in this diet was easy. The third day I was having headaches because of withdrawal symptoms. On the fourth & fifth day, I was already losing weight.

The real challenge here was the 2nd week.

No veggies. No fruits. Only WATER.

The drastic drop in weight was really evident. Although it felt good losing weight, my skin was dry and I look sick.

I've never done it again. I don't recommend it. I just want to share it with you.

I stay away from oily, fatty foods and try to eat healthy. I still eat what I like, I eat what I want. Better di ba?

Don't starve yourself. Me? I'd rather eat. I'd rather run.

Want to lose weight? Takbo tayo!

    sing with me... "if we hold on together...i know our dreams will never die..."
    walang sense di ba? hehehehe!!!

    seriously, i started to lose weight (yun obvious?) nun ika 9th month in running. plus, i changed my diet a bit. i think i still eat the same amount. mas madami lang ang veggies + fruits + water.

    tip? get a weighing scale. check your before & after weight pag mag run ka. just don't pig out before you weigh-in after a run.

  12. I AGREE. . . losing weight takes a lot of patience. . . the KEY is to eat right. . . BALANCED diet. . . always remember the food PYRAMID. . . (and runners need carbohydrates too)

    common. . . let's sing with Julie . .. "if we hold on together...i know our dreams will never die..."
