Day 2 of the “3 Day Diet”
I shared on my blog yesterday that I was participating in an experiment. I mean, I’m the only participant, but it is an experiment. I pinned this silly “3 Day Diet” on Pinterest, and I became curious. The food was easy, I’m anxious to get the holiday weight off before vacation, it sounded simple, and there’s not much cooking at all, so I decided to give it a try.
The “3 Day Diet” is pretty cut and dry, but there are a few substitution options. The only thing on the diet that I didn’t want to eat, was the (2) hot dogs that you are supposed to eat for dinner on Day 2. Plain hot dogs. No bread, no ketchup. That seemed like a lot of fat and salt for this girl. You could substitute 4 oz. of beans for each frank, so I did that. It just sounded much healthier! It was a strange dinner.
I will say that on Day 1 AND Day 2, I was really hungry for dinner, so I ate early, (4:30 on Tuesday, and 5:00 on Wednesday) then I was fine for the rest of the evening. I spent the evening filling up on water. I drink a lot of water anyway, so this wasn’t difficult.
The plan does says to exercise, and on Day 1, I did not do cardio, just weights. When I went to do the treadmill yesterday afternoon, Day 2, I felt dizzy. So I skipped it. I should have tried again after dinner, but didn’t. Today, I will be able to exercise shortly after breakfast. I’m planning on an hour, so we’ll see how I feel and how that goes?
The diet says to not weigh until the morning after you have done the “3 Day Diet”, so that’s what I’ll do.
Tomorrow I’ll have what I ate for Day 3, my weigh in results, and a few thoughts on the “3 Day Diet”!
