Lose 5 pounds fast

Due the fact that I had 3 servings of Creamier Churn Extreme Cookies and Cream from here http://www.mayfielddairy.com/ for lunch yesterday (if they do not have Mayfield's where you reside I am sorry. Only milk I can drink- its extra yum because of the yellow jugs, which block light and fridge flavors from entering the milk. Seriously), I need to get back on the nutrition track.

Pre-wedding I was obviously eating in a very healthy manner, due to the fact that 400-odd people would be staring at me while I am trotting around in the most unflattering color ever. Honeymoon, typically weight gain central, I did not put on a pound.

So I got a little cocky, thinking the 5 lbs I dropped by not eating carbs for 2 weeks prior to the wedding was sustainable while consuming masses of carbs, especially those contained by alcohol. Ha! Needless to say- the 5 lbs is back, along with a little extra.

So starting this morning, its game time. I need a jump start. Its time to get serious. Time to pull out the big guns. Time for a week of hell.

Here's Gerika (my trainer I had in Atlanta)

Here is her lose 5 lbs fast one week jump start diet:

Warning- this seems innocuous and fairly easy, appearances are deceiving. It sucks.

1st Meal: 3 Egg whites, 1 cup bran cereal with skim milk, 1/2 cup strawberries

2nd Meal: Protein Shake

3rd Meal: Tuna (3 or 5 oz, can or bag), Vegetable (broccoli, asparagus, spinach, etc (only green), 1/4 piece avocado [I usually turn this into a spinach salad]

4th Meal: Protein Shake

5th Meal: Grilled chicken breast or fish, 3 oz sweet potato, 1/2 cup brown rice, Green vegetable

6th Meal: 3 Egg White omelet with pepper(mushrooms, onions, green, red, yellow peppers)

Doesn't sound so bad- lots of food, right? We'll see how it goes.

  1. Interesting! How did it go? I know this is a super old post, but I was searching your blog for recipes and came across it. How long do you have to do it to lose the 5 lbs?
