Well, I (somewhat) successfully completed one week of The Scarsdale Diet! Saturday night we had some friends over for play time and dinner...I totally ate 2 cookies! My friend brought over some whole wheat oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that looked flat out delicious and called my name until I quieted them! Ha, ha. Outside of the two cookies and a little dressing on some salad, I really was good, though.
FOOD: I took the "menu" for this week and sort of rearranged the food and the times it would be eaten each day. Basically, I don't like eating a lot at dinnertime. It is easier for me to prepare food for everyone's dinner and then get out of the kitchen. I also feel like eating more a little earlier in the day sets me up for a less stressful afternoon...last week, each afternoon I would just be wanting to snack on anything I could find. I would resist, but then there would be days like Friday: Cheese Day and I would just go nuts with the "all you can eat" food that was allowed. Crazy girl! So, for Sunday, the website calls for this:
Tomatoes, carrots, cooked cabbage, broccoli or cauliflower
Grapefruit, or fruit in season
Plenty of broiled (grilled) steak, all visible fat removed before eating; any cut of steak you wish- sirloin, porterhouse, London broil, etc.
Salad of lettuce, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes (sliced or cooked)
