The new 3 day diet from my experiences

Shopping List:

  • Organic peanut butter (No more than 200 caolories per 2 tablespoons)
  • Healthy organic bread (No more than 150 calories per slice, I chose seed and it was 140 per slice)
  • Box of organic saltine crackers (approximately 15 calories per cracker, mine listed as 60 calories for 4 crackers)
  • Eggs (get ’em local!!)
  • Carrots (organic — I just bought one large one – enough to fill 1/2 cup)
  • Broccoli (organic – I got one nice large head. Stems or Flowers both work, so you can eat one or the other or both!)
  • Grape Fruit
  • Bananas (I got medium sized)
  • 2 small organic apples
  • Cottage Cheese (yup, still organic 1/2 cup 120 calories)
  • Cheddar Cheese slices (1 slice is 120 calories. I got organic sharp cheddar and mine was 110 calories)
  • Meat for day one – healthy, lean, 300 calories total
    (I got a nice sliced organic honey ham package)
  • Meat for day two – healthy, lean, 350 calories total
    (I got organic beef hot dogs because that was recommended on one of the pages I researched)
  • Can(s) of organic tuna (1 cup is 300 calories)
    (I opted for organic Crab because I prefer the flavor. Crab has a LOT less calories and zero fat, zero carbs but lots of protein. I think what is important here is the low fat, low carbs and protein. )
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (the fewer ingredients the better, make sure it’s made from sugar and not High Fructose Corn Syrup or any word you can’t read or even just Fructose or Corn Syrup. Sneaky)

Don’t PRESS stuff into the measurement cups, just lay it nicely. If you are really desperate, think Tetris, but no squishing.
Sorry, no seasonings. Salt is okay, but if you’re like me, I never add extra salt to my diet.

This shopping list (I already had ice cream and eggs from a friend who has her own chickens) cost me less than 100 dollars from my local organic shop.

Here’s how I did my days

Day 1

Pre-exercise: Make the peanut butter and healthy bread “sandwich”
2 tablespoons of peanut butter onto the bread.
Lick the tablespoon clean.
Drink coffee

Half hour of Gentle Yoga

Breakfast
1/2 Grapefruit

2nd Breakfast (yes, I must be hobbitsis)
peanut butter sandwich, make it last until lunch

Briskly Walk for 20 minutes

Evenly balanced through the morning,
1 cup of each of the following:
Moon Cycle Tea
Green Tea
Nettle Tea

Lunch time
Crab and bread
(Tuna has more calories but I thought crab tasted better.)

Slice the small apple into 8 pieces

Evenly balanced through the afternoon:
Chickweed tea (help curb hunger pangs)
Original Yogi Tea (also seemed to curb my hunger pangs)
Fennel Tea
Chamomile tea (de-stresser!!)

starting an hour after lunch, 2 apple slices per hour.
That will help hold you over until dinner time.

Dinner time
300 calories worth of meat
1 cup green beans

Evening snack
Banana

Before bed snack
Ice cream (Homemade vanilla, four ingredients: Milk, Cream, Eggs, Vanilla)
1 cup – 300 calories

Day 2

Pre-exercise
Coffee (1/2 cup)
1/2 egg

Half hour of Gentle Yoga

Breakfast
1/2 egg

2nd breakfast
1/2 cup of Cottage Cheese
I slice of bread, making it last until lunch

20 minute briskly walking

Evenly balanced through the morning,
1 cup of each of the following:
Moon Cycle Tea
Green Tea
Nettle Tea

Lunch time
Egg and the other 1/2 of cottage cheese

Today is tough, make it all last as long as you can.
Today is the toughest day of all.
Drink the Chickweed tea as soon as possible followed by the Yogi Tea

Snack on the broccoli throughout the day (I didn’t do this, but I wish I had, the afternoon was TOUGH!)
Cut the banana into 8ths to make it last too as well as the 6 saltine crackers. However you can make things stretchhhhhh.

Fennel Tea
Chamomile tea

Dinner Time
2 hot dogs
broccoli
carrots

Before bed snack
1/2 cup of Ice Vanilla Homemade Ice cream
150 calories

Day 3

Pre-exercise
Coffee
1/2 egg

Half hour of Gentle Yoga

Breakfast
1/2 egg

2nd breakfast
None. Trust me, it’ll be okay…
Drink your teas though!

evenly balanced through the morning,
1 cup of each of the following:
Moon Cycle Tea
Green Tea
Chickweed tea (to help with hunger)

Lunch
1 slice of cheese
6 saltine crackers

Again, slice the small apple into 8 pieces
Spread it out, 2 an hour through the afternoon.

Balance throughout the afternoon
Original Yogi Tea
Fennel Tea
Chamomile tea

Dinner Time
1 slice of Bread and 1 cup of Crab

Before bed snack
Ice cream (Homemade vanilla, four ingredients: Milk, Cream, Eggs, Vanilla)
1 cup

And DONE!
Weigh yourself first thing the next morning, before you eat or exercise!
I lost 6 pounds and 2 inches off my waist!

And the day after?
If you are trying to continue to lose weight, 1200 calories is the recommendation.
If you are trying to maintain, 1500 calories.
Walk and exercise!! I prefer walking in addition to my yoga.

From my experience:
Drink LOTS of water afterwards. I read that toxins are released from weigh loss (makes sense) and you don’t want to catch the cold that’s been hiding in your fatty cells.
I also upped my organic Immunity Pills (doubled) and drank all the health beneficial teas I had in the house.
I highly recommend Wellness Tonic Tea – Full of herbs used by many folk practitioners as herbal tonics this tea includes a combination of lemon balm, elderflower, red clover, and plantain from
Herbal Alchemy Teahouse and More (I drink this stuff at every sniffle, cough or hint of feeling not quite right.) Tastes great too!
