What does your strict diet entail?
Hi lindam, when I'm not on the fast.....
Breakfast: Lots of fruits, consisting of apples, oranges, grapefruit, and pears (these are the only fruits available in my collge dorm. I drink my green tea and get my cup of water with squeezed lemon. Sometimes I'll eat my eggs and oatmeal in the morning if I have time.
Lunch: Large salad with all the vegeys you can think of (free salad bar), using only romaine lettuce and baby spinach. I make sure to use only the vegeys that have been freshly cut and not from a can. For dressing, I simply squeeze in a few lemons. It ain't too bad but it does get boring. I drink my lemoned water and get my fruits for dessert.
Dinner: Another salad, but with lean grilled chicken throw in. Sometimes I eat fish for dinner. I eat hard-boiled eggs sometimes and again get my lemoned water.
This is the typical day for me. Occasionally I go out with friends and eat whatever is on the menu, but I usually order salad with meat.
On my fast:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner: Apples, Lemoned water, green tea, fiber supplements (basically stuff for a mini colon cleanse)
Hope this helps.
