It’s been one month and one week since I started this diet thing. Lucky me, I’ve shed some pounds. The first week was great as I lost 4.5 pounds. The second and third week was the very upsetting times as I have not lost any. On the fourth week, I decided to cut the rice on my diet. I was actually taking a cup of rice in a day, so I guessed that will not have too much effect on my diet. But when I saw that I have not lost any pound in two weeks, I finally decided to remove it from my system. I was taking a cup of rice in a day, but now, only on weekends – still one cup and no cheat day. And I am having at least two liters of water per day.
The morning smoothie is still on-going and I am having oatmeal for breakfast, too… or sometimes, at dinner time when I am lazy to make one in the morning. I have tried the overnight oats but I think something went wrong, so I did not stick to that.
Among the smoothies I have tried, I can say that the combination of Bananas, Grapes and Strawberries is my top favorite. I can finish a glass or two. 😀
Bananas, Grapes and Strawberries Smoothie
- 2 large ripe Bananas
- 1 cup fresh Grapes*
- 1 cup fresh Strawberries (stems removed and sliced into two)
- Ice cubes
- 1/3 cup skimmed milk/almond milk/soy milk
Put everything in a blender and blend well. Transfer to a glass and drink immediately. This will serve up to three people, depending on how much you can consume.
- *Seeds can be removed if desired. As for my smoothie, I’d love to include the seeds.
- In this smoothie, you can also add yogurt. I just enjoy mine with the above ingredients.
This diet thing will go on until the scale could put a smile on my face or until I give up. Well, hopefully, I can still manage until a few months. For one month and 1 week, I lost 6.6 pounds… it’s not that bad. 🙂
I hope you try this smoothie and let me know what you think. Hope everyone is having a great day!
