Obligatory disclaimer: This week, in an attempt to get a glimpse of the day-to-day lives of the world’s poorest people, I have committed to setting my food budget for five consecutive days at $1.50 a day. I am four years post-op and have sufficient body fat to do this. I consulted my physician who, while not totally thrilled, is supportive. Do not try something like this without first consulting your medical team and DO NOT TRY THIS IF YOU ARE LESS THAN A YEAR POST-OP. K?
I won’t bore you with the details of my plan today. It’s basically just shuffling around the stuff I’ve already been eating. I did manage to work a 1/2 c. of chickpeas into my dinner plan which will help boost my calories.
Here’s my Day Two report:
Yes, I do look a hot mess…thank you for noticing 🙂
Is it wrong that I am ECSTATIC to see the end of this in sight? I mean I have learned a lot, not the least of which being that I love food! I love cooking it and I love eating it! I don’t find any shame in that.
I have a Foodie recipe submission that I was supposed to post eons ago lined up for this evening, so keep a lookout for that and of course I’ll report on day three tomorrow!
