The Protein Diet

For about ten days now I have been on a protein diet. I just wasn't able to stay on a regular diet, so I thought I would give this a try for just a few weeks. Yeah I know it's not supposed to be good for you, bad for the kidneys and all that. Well I did my research and it's only bad if you already have a kidney ailment or heart condition. I'm doing the modified diet that includes vegetables and salads with a maximum of 100 grams of carbs per day.

So far the results are good. I have no cravings, no hunger pangs, and unlike other diets, I don't spend my day thinking about food. It's been fairly easy to follow, although I have to say it's not something I could do for a long time. I love pasta and sweets  too much to give them up forever!!

Yeah I know a moderate diet and exercise are the right way to go These days that regime isn't working for me and I am packing on the pounds.  My clothes are so tight and I refuse to go out and buy new stuff in a bigger size. This week I was able to get into a pair of shorts and do them up easily; couldn't last week. 

OK, so I will most likely  gain all the weight back, but that happens with every diet.


One unexpected side benefit: My teeth feel so clean!!

I think I could be happy with just meat, but I also want to go vegan...I'm a very confused person. When did eating become so complicated?

I gained a ton of weight on IV Steroids and it took me forever it lose them.

Good luck.

Do what makes you feel good! Not every diet works for everyone. As long as this is making you happy I say go for it! I sometimes think that the low self esteem that can go with being overweight can be worse than almost any diet could be. Good luck!
