7 Day Detox Diet...or, I'm a crazy person

Well, UFG'ers, it's official.  I'm crazy.  I told myself I was going to do this diet.. and by golly, I'm doing it.  But holy crap am I hungry.
So we all know Pinterest, yes?  (I'm there!) My flugal buddy Tricia posted this 7 Day Detox Diet, and I became intrigued.  After a forced Big Mac while babysitting one night, I needed a detox in my life.

The concept is pretty simple.  The foods you eat on this diet take more calories to eat than they actually have.  It didn't look too ridiculous or hard, so I decided to just do it.  I went to the Farmer's Market and stocked up.

Guys.  I'm hungry.  I'm only on Day 2. 

Day 1 - Fruit.  I flippin' love fruit.  How hard could this be!?  Well, after the waves of headaches and nausea passed, it was pretty delicious.  It's not everyday you eat an entire cantaloupe and half a watermelon for dinner. Word to wise:  You'll be in the bathroom.  A lot.

Day 2 - Veggies.  Today for breakfast I had a zucchini and a cucumber.   I'm hungry.  I'm seriously considering some carrots in my near future.

This detox is not too extreme, and absolutely doable.  However, I'm kind of scared for Day 4.  I like bananas, and I like milk.  But I don't like 8 a day of either of those.  So.. we'll see how that goes.

After only 1 day, I've lost 2 lbs.  So far, it's living up to it's promises.  More to come towards the end of the week!
