Ideal Protein - Week 1 Weigh In

So last Thursday, March 31st, I decided to start a new diet - Ideal Protein.  This diet was developed by Dr. Chanh Tran Tien.  I've been contemplating it for months now and finally decided I was willing to dedicate myself and just do it!  But let me tell you, the first 4 days were rough!  Really rough.  I was so hungry and almost had myself convinced that it was a starvation diet.  I now realize my body was just detoxing from no sugar or carbs.  Day 5, 6 and 7 have been re markedly better and I'm actually feeling great!

Until now, I never realized how bloated carbs were actually making me.  For instance, now after I eat a dinner of chicken, vegetables and salad I feel full, but not that "gross kinda feelin' full" that I had become so accustomed to.   

So tonight was my first weigh in. 

My starting weight last week was 172 LBS (uggg).

After 7 days on Ideal Protein, my weight is now 166.2 LBS

I'm down 5.8 LBS!   

This makes me very happy!  Now I can only hope the scale continues to go in the right direction.  They say the biggest loss will come in your first week, I hope to see at least a 3 LBS loss next week though.
