Here in Minnesota I can tell spring is coming because the sun sets a little later every day. I leave work at 5 p.m. and last week it was pitch black walking out to the car. This week has brought a surprising change, it is not quite that dark! I know, it’s the little things in life …
This got me thinking about riding my motorcycle. Which lead to getting back into exercising and eating right. And then, I found a copy of this diet. A friend received this from a doctor several years ago. The first time I looked it over I thought she was kidding. Believe it or not neither she nor her doctor meant this as a joke.
Dr. McGillicutty’s Diet
Drink a glass of water 1/2 hour prior to a meal to stretch the stomach, which lowers the appetite when you are ready to sit down to eat.
Watch out for the word, BUT, it usually means an excuse is coming.
Weigh yourself daily and record it.
Continue to weigh yourself even when you get to your “ideal” weight to keep from regaining the weight you worked so hard to lose.
You should be able to lose at least one pound per week on this diet.
Personally, I have not tried this diet! My friend lost over 60 pounds quite a while ago. She has kept the weight off by continuing to follow this diet!
Disclaimer: Try at your own risk. Wisdom would dictate that if you need to lose weight seek doctor’s advice before starting any diet and/or exercise program.
