The Acid Reflux Diet.

As many of you will know I blogged last week about my weight and how I was going to attempt to try different celebrity diets in return for loosing some of my fat cells.
So this is a quick update on how last week went on the Grapefruit Diet, this involved drinking a glass of grapefruit juice before each meal which is supposed to suppress your hunger......I have split this process into Pros and Cons.




        
PROS
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
1.Fits in your fridge easily
2.The kids hate it so nobody else touches it
3.Easy to drink before a meal
4.Cheap to buy.


CONS

1.Makes your eye do funny things when you drink it.
2.Gives you the worst case of heartburn ever in the evenings (my usual nightcap of G&T has been replaced with Gaviscon)
3.After a while it affects your taste buds so that you cant taste the food your eating anyway thus resulting in immediate weight loss as everything tastes the same and you loose your appetite.
4.Am now suffering with cystitis (sorry,grim I know) due to the high level of acid.

5.If you drop the carton on the floor( due to hopping around because of your urinary tract problem) it is a total bugger to clean up. Even when you think you have it all you walk on the floor in your slippers and they stick to it like a fly to fly paper.

TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS...................2lbs. Not bad I suppose but probably would of been better if I hadn't had so much Gaviscon which I am sure is fattening.

So there we go folks, my first week over and the first diet done and dusted. Not a great success but at least I lost a bit of weight. I don't look much different except from a slight acid like glow.

Next week Diet Challenge is The Colour Diet, this involves avoiding white foods such as pasta,bread,cookies,rice (basically carbs). On 4 of the days you should try and have a vegetarian menu, on 1 of the days you should try to drink 4 homemade fruit smoothies along with your days menu. As for the other 3 days, its red meat with steamed veg.

Wish me luck with this one as I do love my carbs so this is going to be a tricky one.

Lots of Love

  1. Very funny! I was thinking about the hearburn side of things! I couldn't think of anything worse its so acidic - although it is know for its diet properties as such. I have tinned pineapple and that's just about bearable. Love the glowing man pic! Look forward to next weeks one! x

  5. Oh my god - that sounds unpleasant. Will be avoiding this diet. Now the colour diet sounds better and makes more sense. Hope the infection has cleared up.
