The smell of fresh, buttered pancakes roasting on the hot griddle even now is wafting from the kitchen over to the computer, where I am mostly through with an 8oz. glass of orange-pineapple-mango juice. Or, as it is known today: breakfast. There are 120 Cal per serving and a total of 7 servings in the 1.8qt carton of juice, or about half of the daily caloric intake that I need. I suppose I may run up to the store and grab another. Today is only juice, but not the full-on "lemonade diet". It's going to be a rough day.
Yesterday was only pulpy liquids, soups and juices. No chewing allowed! Thankfully there was no limit to quantity. Two bottles of naked juice; one fresh, juice blend from the Filling station; three cans of soup; two martinis and at least a gallon and a half of Crystal Light drink saw me through the day. It's amazing how much a person thinks about food when they aren't having any!
My beginning weigh-in yesterday was around 180lb, with 22% body fat and hydration of 57%. This morning it was 177lb, 23% body fat and a hydration of 56%. Go figure: after all that liquid I am now less hydrated than when I began!
