No losses 4.3 lbs in one day. I retain water despite staying with a strict low sodium diet (800 to 1000 mg day). Can not go any lower. I missed the thrill of midway but I dread having to see the up and down of the weight. I will be up tomorrow. Hazards of getting older.
I have been reading ahead and getting scared. Pure protein day is going to be hard in the next phase. When searching the net, I came upon Vicki’s Dukan blogging. http://dukanblogging.blogspot.com
Ms Vicki has already met TW and is still blogging the days of consolidation. One of her favorite things to eat is chocolate scrambled eggs. She loves them. No one else gave an opinion and so I thought I would try it.
The simplicity of this is wonderful. Cheap. Very low carb (about 2 or 3 g). I have changed it a bit but it will always be:
1/2 cup egg whites (Do not use Egg Beaters.)
1 Tbsp fat-free Greek Yogurt
4 Splenda packets (I use a combo of splenda and stevia base sweeteners.)
1 1/2 tsp. Hersey’s special dark cocoa powder
1) In a microwave-safe bowl, mix the sweetener and cocoa powder. Then add yogurt and mix again. Finally, slowly whisk in the eggs.
2) No more whisking after this.
2) Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes checking frequently after 1 min. Error on side of over done. Serve hot or cold.
Directions for Sis. Combine dry ingredient then add wet. Whisk well then leave alone. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes. Drain off uncooked egg and serve with sf chocolate syrup. Do Not Overcook (It will turn to rubber). See pictures below.
I love this too. Thank you Vicki.
