Lost another pound--seven pounds in six days. So what do I eat on a 500 calorie diet? I start the day with a liter of water, and then around 8:00am I drink tea or coffee sweetened with stevia. If I am hungry before lunch, I eat my fruit. Usually that is an apple because it fills me up most. Lunch is 3 1/2 ounces of fat free beef, chicken, fish or shrimp and a vegetable. I can also have one piece of melba toast if I need it. I go without unless I am super hungry. Dinner is the same--one fruit, one veggie, 3 1/2 ounces of meat, and melba toast. My kinds of veggies and fruits are limited--no starchy vegetables or high sugar/calorie fruits. I'm not supposed to have any fat or touch any oils. I can have all the lemon and stevia I want. The HCG keeps me from feeling too hungry. I take it three times per day. Also, I am supposed to drink 3 liters of water per day. That doesn't always happen. And that is my life for 40 days!
