Food junkie

I have lots of food pics on several SD/memory cards laying around. I usually don’t post them if I don’t think they’re pretty, but today I don’t care.
I must admit that I tried and failed the Smash Diet. I’m totally motivated to give it another go when there won’t be a food-happy vacation in the middle. I made it through Phase I with minimal withdrawal symptoms. lol. I was doing well in Phase II with running a few times a week on the treadmill and eating well. I was actually doing without coffee and white potatoes for several weeks! Then came that doggone vacation and I had fried, nuts and all kinds of stuff I shouldn’t have had. I still ran every other day and my body’s fat percentage and weight dropped while I was away. Yay me!

Smash Diet: Take 3 is coming soon.

Spinach, corn, sunflower seeds, mushrooms and bell pepper

Thanks steph!

Babs – You know, Smash was a bit pricey but I liked how I felt. Part of that could be the 3 biscuits and Oreos I just ate. 😦

Smash = The Fat Smash Diet. It’s Dr. Ian K. Smith’s plan. It’s very simple, but it’s in phases. Phase 1 is detox (yikes) and it’s rough. You slowly introduce more things after 9 days, then a few weeks, then a few more months. You’re also increasing your physical activity. It’s a really sensible eating plan, but you have to grocery shop a lot for fresh veggies. No bread, pasta, crackers for several weeks.

And the finger’s fine. I’m kinda clumsy in the kitchen.
