With the urging of my mom, and my three months of fairly unscuessessful attempt at Weight Watchers, I have decided to go on the Omnitrition version of the HCG diet. This diet has me taking drops three times a day, and eating 4 oz of meat and veggies twice a day, with a snack or two of fruit or wasa crackers. Today is my first day. I made some incredible lemon chicken for lunch, with 4 oz of sauteed onions. The meal size left me wanting, but water got me through until grocery shopping and dinner.
At the store tonight, I bought all the veggies I could find on the approved list, along with some hamburger meat. I weighed out 4 oz of meat, and one oz of onion per patty. I used 1 tablespoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of oregano in the meat for six burgers. I mixed it together and put it in a dry, non stick pan on low to medium low heat. Next I sliced up some tomatoes, and washed some lettuce. I also sliced up some cucumber.
I made my husband a cheeseburger on bread, and I wound up slicing up my hamburger patty and putting it over 1/2 a cup of lettuce, 1 oz of cucumbers, and 1 oz of tomatoes. I topped the salad off with a sprinkling of mustard, and that was my dinner tonight. Today is the first day I am eating this diet, and quite frankly, I am STARVING still. My stomach is literally still speaking to me, after I am done eating. I really want to say screw it, and just eat another burger on bread with lots of cheese and no veggies. However, now that I have fruit in the house, I am thinking I may just wait a little while, and try for some fruit for dessert instead.
