Whenever I want to kick start any kind of weight loss, I always rely on my standard protein diet. It has been good to me over the years, and I can lose a pound a day when I stick to it. (I usually only stick to it about three days in a row because it is so super boring. Then I just watch what I eat. I enjoy food waaaaaaaay too much to be restricted on what I am supposed to be putting in my mouth.)
The plan is to eat as much of these foods as you want during the course of the day and pretty much nothing else: eggs (and even bacon if you want), grapefruit or grapefruit juice (I don't really like these so I drink Ruby Red even though I know that is SO not the same thing - but it does seem to suffice), lean red meat, veggies/salad (totally limit the dressing) ... that's about it.
It has worked fabulously over the past 30 years or so. When I have done it, I have lost a pound a day ... Awesome. Except, I have done this the past two days and I didn't lose two pounds ... Bummer. I decided not to do it today. About mid-morning I really craved a Sweet Tooth Fairy cookie, so I got one. It was way good.
I think it could pass for an egg ... just saying.
