Detox Day 9


I got sick yesterday, just a runny nose. The last time I got sick while dieting, I was competing with my best friend to see who can lose the most weight by a certain date, percentage wise. When she found out I was sick, she said, “No fair! You lose more weight when you’re sick!” Actually, I find that to be true most of the time so maybe it has some validity. I bet it’s just water weight though. I’m not sure what that means really. Your body is supposedly made up of 70% water so isn’t losing water weight a good thing? Weight is weight, right?

I don’t mind if I lost a bunch of water weight. I’m sure any weight lost is good at this point. I ended up having a super late dinner last night with friends at a thai restaurant but I didn’t eat much. I tend to gain weight whenever I eat late & go to sleep right after. I anticipated some sort of gain this morning but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I actually lost a pound!

I spent most of the day sleeping off my sickness and watching Dr. Oz. A lady named Kathy Freston was on it, talking about her new book, The Lean. She’s vegan & showed us a new philly cheesesteak recipe using seitan instead. I’m game to try it. I love seitan. The first time I tried it was from a vegetarian friend of mine who is a chef that makes filipino vegan food. He has his own catering company called No Worries. Ever since then, I was hooked. Unfortunately, seitan is not gluten free so I cannot consume it right now unless I can make my own seitan. Oooh, that’s a bit too ambitious for me right now. I’d rather just buy it somewhere. Anyway, the point is, I think I might give The Lean a try after the 21 day detox is over. If Dr. Oz is down for it, I should be too, yes?
