Ohhh me oh my, how time flies by!
For anyone who was following my diet reviews, no I did not starve to death on the Skinny Bitch Diet!
I hit a bit of a rough patch (work-life imbalance!) and before I knew it, days are flying by postless and m.i.a. I am sorry for the interruption, but I am back 🙂
I did stick to The Bitch for the month of September and I did lose about 5lbs by the end of it. I was able to ditch caffeine, meat, seafood, dairy, eggs, and most white devils (sugar, flour, salt).
Find out how I’ve been doing and my holiday binge buster too!
I have to say that I am a BIG fan of The SBD. I agree that most of the things you “give up” are either of no nutritional value, not good for your overall health, or do not belong in a diet where one is trying to lose weight (cheese, anyone?).
I loved finding new alternatives to my old food choices and did not get bored at all. Best of all, by eating healthy and tasty food, I was satiated and felt good about myself after each meal.
I have managed to stay meat and dairy free, and will continue to be as-vegan-as-possible for the health reasons, to keep sinus infections away(haven’t had one since), and to keep up the weight loss.
What I Learned:
- You can live without animal products in your diet. You won’t be bored or malnourished, I promise.
- I feel MUCH better when avoiding sugar, caffeine, and white flour. Less bloated, anxious, and less cravings too.
- If you’re thinking about doing this diet you should absolutely read the book cover to cover. Then, start off small if you need to. Try going vegan one day a week to see how you feel.
Yup. The holidays are looming around the corner, so I have already been doing my own diet plan that I am calling The SOS Diet. It’s maintaining my weight loss, got lots of options, and it’s working 😉
Keep an eye out for my SOS to save you from sinking into the holiday food black hole!
