Here is Erica's post giving the gist of the fast. It's not a total starvation fast: it's about 1000 calories a day. More of a "jump start for a stalled diet" kind of fast. It's called a "fast," but my guess is that this is more than celebrities generally eat. Of course, they are CRAZY and UNHEALTHY, but whatevs.
I'm making the modifications Erica suggested: I'm having liquids during the day, and then a meal at night. I'm going to have to take it easy with the coffee, though: I had it for breakfast and for lunch, and now I'm all ZZZZZZING!!! and also a little on the IRRITABLE side. I'm going to make some Crystal Light instead.
Anyway, here are the participants so far:
Chraycee of Walking on Sunshine
Julie of Miss Glass is Half Full
Stephanie of Seriously!?
MaryB of A Yankee's Guide to Texas
Sarah of Redefining Perfect
I have ALREADY screwed it up. I was at my mom's house this morning and she was making cookies, and I ate
Well, pooh. I'm not in the habit of this yet, clearly. The temptation was, of course, to then say, "Well, I messed up THIS day!" and go ahead and eat, but that is the road to all kinds of weight issues (purging! drinking full-calorie Coke when you prefer the taste of diet! letting a doughnut in the morning lead to 3,000 additional calories because the day is "ruined"!), so I'm just going, "Okay, fine, that was a genuine mistake, and now let's just continue with the plan." (The plan, as you recall, is bitching and whining.)
