The “Slow-Carb” Diet – My New Years “Resolution” (Days 4, 5 and 6) NYC Done Healthy!

The Slow-Carb Diet My New Years Resolution (Days 4, 5 and 6)

Today is my 6th day on the slow-carb diet, based on The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss, and I CANNOT wait until tomorrow, my binge day. I havent cheated at all in the last few days (no quinoa like I had on Day 2). I was asked if I am gassy because of all the beans and the answer is no. If you tend to get bloated from beans, soak them a few hours longer than the directions on the bag say, or used the canned variety.

As of today, I am 3 pounds less than I was on Day 1. I gained about 7 pounds between the third week of November and January 1, so once I reach the 7 pound loss, I will bring some carbs back into the diet (brown rice, whole grain pasta and bread, etc). I have been eating pretty much the same old shit, but here is what it is:

Breakfast at 8 A.M. – 1 whole egg with 4 egg whites, mixed vegetables and refried beans. Sriracha for flavor (I forgot to mention in my previous posts that the eggs are made with 1 tbsp of butter)

Lunch 12:30 P.M. – Frozen Tandoor Chef meal (Tandoori chicken with spinach) and a cup of curried lentil soup (Daal).

Afternoon Snack 3: 30 P.M. - Bowl of cottage cheese 

Dinner 7:00 P.M.- Beef stew with mashed garlic cauliflower and mixed vegetables. The garlic mashed cauliflower was awesome!!! Tasted just like mashed potatoes! Just add 1 tbsp of butter.

Glass of wine after dinner and a handful of pistachios before bed.

Workout shake at 5:30 A.M. made with chocolate flavored Monster Milk and coffee (sometimes I add a dash of cinnamon, as recommended by Tim in his book).

Breakfast at 8 A.M. – 1 whole egg with 4 egg whites scrambled with butter, mixed vegetables and refried beans. 

Lunch 12:30 P.M. – Ordered a platter from Energy Kitchen (turkey meatloaf, lentil soup and steamed vegetables). Food was great and filling.

Afternoon Snack 3: 30 P.M. - Bowl of cottage cheese 

Dinner 7:00 P.M.- Tandoori chicken with mixed vegetables and beans.

Glass of wine after dinner and a handful of pistachios before bed.

I was feeling a little sick this morning with a sore throat and the thought of solid food (especially beans) made me want to vomit, so I made myself a fake hot chocolate, made with Chocolate Monster Milk and hot water. Actually wasnt bad!

Lunch 12:30 P.M. – Ordered a platter from Pump Energy (braised bison, 3-bean chili, tomatoes and basil served over mixed greens).

Took a nap until 4 PM and started making dinner. No snack today.

Dinner 6:45 P.M.(now) - Tandoori chicken with mixed vegetables and curried lentil soup. Added butter and caramelized onions to the soup.

Going to have a glass of wine after and some pistachios before bed.

So tomorrow on binge day, I am supposed to start out with a healthy breakfast and workout, but after that all is fair. Right now my plan is to have a few chocolate bars, ice cream, mc donalds (probably a big mac, filet o fish and french fries), peanut butter and I have a reservation for a 4-course dinner at Le Cirque. Cant wait!!!
