Day 9 I kept going with the avocado only because it tasted so good and was a fun change. Fat and Protein never seem to give me any problems. It's too many carbs that seem to spur on bouts of cravings and over eating. I feel very in control right now and hope that once the experiment phase is over I can transition into more food groups and stay healthy. I recently stumbled upon www.marksdailyapple.com and read about the primal food plan. It excludes most of my trigger foods and is very healthy and natural. That is where I think I am headed once this is over. I lost another pound! I am amazed. If I can get back to the 160's by the end of this I will be over the moon! I did a full body weight routine today and had 12 eggs and 1 avocado. Energy=awesome! Actually my husband thinks I am nuts for doing this but he even comments how great I look after such a short time and how I am not cranky like I usually am when I am "dieting". I might be nuts, but I do not regret this experiment.
