Cabbage Soup Diet Saga!

On Saturday I decided to attempt the cabbage soup diet.  I made my soup on Friday night, and on Saturday it was all settled and yummy.   Day one went well without any mishaps, you can indulge in as much fruit as you would like.  Day two, was a veggies only day.  I so wanted my sugar so badly…started having slight headaches.  My soup was gone am.   Red pepper has never tasted so good!   In the evening, you can have a baked potato complete with butter!  Well, I am not such a big fan of butter so I had mine with ff sour cream.  Monday morning, I was feeling so good, woke up early and at 7.30 I was at the foot of Barton Avenue lining up to register for the Chattanooga Chase 8K.  Wow – what a course! if you are training for a half-marathon, that is the course to train on.  As soon as we took off, I told myself, this is a HUGE mistake.  At one point, we were looking at Chattanooga downtown from up somewhere, it has so many hills.  I heard someone say, it is going to be “50 minutes of sheer fun” and with James Taylor singing about Carolina and Sweet Baby James, I found my way to the finish line!  Aluta Continua!!

7 Day Cabbage Soup Diet

Of  late I have been thinking of attempting the Cabbage Soup Diet.  I had heard about it but never really read on it because I was just imaginning eating tonnes of cabbage.  The other day I decided to read on it, and it does not sound really bad.  Of course, it is one of those lose weight quick diets, you know what they say about those, your weight comes back on as fast as you lost it.  But, I think it would be a great way to jump start a diet!!  I looked at the cabbage soup recipe, and it is doable.  and you get to eat lots of fruit and during the last days you can have  almost too much steak.  Well, what have I lose? weight? right?  There are many versions though but I am attempting the original version.  I’ll keep you updated.

Fun Monday – Food Favs

This week’s Fun Monday is hosted by Debs.  Her topic is yummy! 

The Mission: FOOD. We all eat it. We all have the kind we like and the kind we dislike. What are some of your favorite foods? Which food do you find disgusting? Have a recipe you want to share?
I love food!  I would say all the juicy tropical fruits are my favorites but they are too expensive here for me to indulge as I would like to or as I used to.  I HATE pumpkins.  The irony of it all is that I love squash and they do belong to the same family.  When I was in boarding school, we had to finish all the food that we were served.  And for one of the meals, we should be served this HUGE piece of boiled pumpkin, I HATED it.  It was disgusting.  And where I grew up, NO ONE was allergic to any food, you bet, I would have claimed to be allergic to pumpkin!

Head over to Debs and see what people love to eat.  Have a fun Monday!
