Week two of the diet, and I am definitely struggling. Maybe I'm just not complaining enough. Last week I stuck to the diet pretty much 100%, but there was a lot of bitching and moaning going on, particularly about soup. This week, I weighed in and got a great result - 2.5kgs, which is 10% of what I need to lose, and I've started to slide.
The Tony Ferguson diet puts you into ketosis by restricting the amount of carbs you eat, so it's really important not to fall off the bandwagon and eat a whole packet of say, Coles 6 pack iced donuts. Which I haven't.
But I did make the (perhaps fatal?) mistake of buying a HUGE packet of cashews at Woolies the other day, and while I did split some of them up into little baggies of snack sized portions for one of my "good fat" serves during the day, the last two nights I also ate a ridiculous amount of non-baggied non-portioned cashews. I'm hoping that this doesn't have too much of a bad effect on my loss this week, as it shouldn't really affect the ketosis, however it does of course affect my fat intake. *sigh*
In the interests of full disclosure - here comes the shame moment - last night, even after consuming half my weight in deliciously salted cashews, I was still hungry so I consumed this morning's portion of TF receipe banana bread, still on the theory that as it's still "diet allowed food" that I shoul still be in ketosis, and therefore still lose weight this week. I guess the scales will tell, but I'm not feeling happy about it. :-(
