Yesterday, I completed Day 4 of The Virgin Diet.

  • The arthritis pain in my right hand has diminished greatly, as has the pain in my left foot.
  • I eliminated my breakfast almost immediately after eating it, and had a couple more loose eliminations later in the day. 
  • I ate lunch at work today, and I had an odd experience:  The minute I put a bite of roasted chicken in my mouth, I felt nauseated.  Really nauseated.  I only ate half of the chicken in my lunch because of that feeling.  I ate my vegetables and pumpkin and started to feel better.
  • I lost energy and had to take a nap after eating lunch in the middle of the day.  Is this because of the new way I am eating, or because I am having to get up before dawn?
  • I did not have abdominal pain, bloating or a dash to the bathroom after lunch or dinner.
  • My blood glucose was 84 an hour and a half after eating dinner.
  • I went to bed at 9:30 last night, slept through the night and woke up without an alarm this morning at 6:30 feeling refreshed.  I was not starving when I woke up.
  • I lost 1.4 pounds yesterday for a total loss of 2.2 pounds in 4 days.  To get back to my goal weight, I need to lose 9.6 more pounds.
  • I buttoned my "measurement shorts" this morning and there is a very slight "muffin top".

Starting weight - 147.8
Current weight - 145.6
Goal weight - 136

I normally eat like this:

135g fat (78%)
57g protein
28g carbs

Yesterday, I ate like this:

132g fat (68%)
82g protein
58g carbs

I had a shake for breakfast that was comprised of coconut milk, water, non-dairy protein powder, ground flax seed, raw kale, frozen blueberries and a few drops of Stevia.  I also had 2 tsp. of cod liver oil.

I changed the quantity of some of the ingredients of my shake because I had gained some weight the day before:  Due to the high amount of protein I was eating, I cut the protein powder down by 10%, and because of the "bathroom distress" and the fact that I have had a very small amount of fiber for the past year and I think it is a problem, I cut the flax seed by 40%.  Because I am a little nervous about going so high with the carbs, I cut the berries by 20%.  I will keep my shakes at this level and see how I do for a few days.

For lunch, I had a roasted chicken thigh, steamed spinach with coconut oil and sea salt and canned pumpkin with cinnamon and Stevia. 

For dinner, I had a roasted chicken leg, a really large bowl of coleslaw made of cabbage, MCT oil, olive oil, crushed garlic, onion powder, lime juice, Stevia and avocado.  I also had 1/2 oz. almonds.

I ate breakfast at 5 am, lunch at 11:30 am and dinner at 6:30 pm.  I did not feel like snacking after dinner.

I drank 72 oz. of water, but never within an hour before eating or an hour after eating, in order to not dilute my stomach acid.
