South Beach Day 7 - DOWN 6 POUNDS! Here's What I Ate

South Beach Day 7, and I am still sticking to the plan. No bread, pasta, alcohol, fruit, or any kind of sweets. I'M DOWN SIX POUNDS! WEEE! My boyfriend has lost 5 pounds! Yaaaay!
I'm doing South Beach Phase 1 for 7 more days, then I'm switching to Phase 2 where I will start incorporating back in good carbs like wheat pasta, rice, whole wheat toast, and dark chocolate among other yummy things.
This is typically how I cook, so Phase 1 has been a way for me to drop the holiday pounds and adjust my glycemic index. That way I don't continue to over eat and pound sweets and cookies like we did with our relatives over Christmas vacation.
Here's what I ate Day 7:
2 hard boiled eggs
Celery and peanut butter
Day 5 dinner left overs- Turkey Meatloaf and Roasted Broccoli
Tuna Cakes (without bread crumbs)
Wilted Winter Greens and Green Chard
2 sugar free popsicles
1 piece sugar free hard candy
I found a great alternative to bread crumbs when I was doing Paleo (ground almond meal) they sell it at Trader Joes or you could make your own by grinding raw almonds. I keep it in the freezer to keep fresh. Works great for chicken nuggets too.
Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.
Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and...
Ty Herndon has come out of the closet! Read the entire story from People Magazine HERE.
Here's a couple of my favorite Ty Herndon songs from the 90's:
Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
Meghan Trainor (who sings "All About That Bass") steps up to the mic and belts out an AWESOME version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"! This is addicting! Check it out.
