Week 4 Feb. 1st - 6th

Posted February 3rd, 2009 at 08:58 AM by cathythomas
Ok I'm starting week 4 of the MOB Diet, I staying faithful to having the Banana with Room Temp water every morning for Breakfast, and since I'm not a big eater one Banana is enough for me. I finding that this totally fills me up and I don not have that feeling of hunger all day long, there are time that I could prbably go without eating at all. My concern is my metabolisum should be working about every 4 hours letting me know to eat something, when I initally started the diet it was but now I at the point that I just feel pretty full all the time and I don't have to eat every 4 hours. Today I did have the midmorning snack of the 100 calorie bag of pretzels. I'm back in the Gym this week and also doing some upper body exercise at home. I have lost weight, not sure how much as I don't have scale at home just going by how my clothes are fitting me, and they are looking much better on me. I don't think that my concern is a massive amount of weight loss but looking better in my clothes and I know that going to the gym and working out and toning is going to help improve they I look. I will let you know how things are by the end of this week.

Day 5 -- still wondering how does this diet work!

I haven't weighted myself in a few days, so, I don't know if I've lost weight at all. I have to admit that I haven't been following the diet as strictly as I should. I do eat bananas for breakfast and I drink a lot of water. However, it's hard for me to eat before 8pm every night, completely cut out dessert, and to go to sleep by 12.

I'm trying though. I forced myself to go to bed by 12 these two days. I started reading to get myself to sleep. I am also gradually cutting down on dessert! So, Wish me luck!!

Until this point, I still don't understand how exactly does this diet work. Some say it's the enzymes & fiber in bananas that improve digestion and bowel movement. Some say that it's the potassium that regulates bodily fluid and increases metabolic rate. Some say that potassium helps calcium absorption and calcium is the actual chemical that makes this diet work...

Judging from the dieters' blogs, a friend of mine pointed out that most of the people succeeding on the diet are ones with relatively poor lifestyles and/or eating habits to begin with. She thinks that the diet works because it's just a healthy way of living. I agree with her on this. Think about it, eating plenty of fruits, drinking plenty of water, and having enough sleepy are all good for us. Even the health professionals would agree, right?

At this point, I am just curious to see if this diet works for me. I have a relatively healthy lifestyle -- except for the sleepying part. I eat a lot of veggie. I don't eat fast food. I go whole grain if possible. I also exercise 2 to 3 times a week. If this diet works for me, I assume it's the physiological effects that make it work. If it doesn't work for me, then it's the healthy lifestyle and eating habit part of this diet that that make it work. We will see!!

Day 91

Posted January 28th, 2009 at 11:05 AM by GoinBananas
The last time I weighed myself I was down to 156.2 (total lost is 10.2 lbs.). I haven't weighed myself in about a week. I have been eating my morning banana but have not been as good not eating after 8 PM. I've also been craving food within an hour of eating the banana. I try not to eat too much though. I think I ate 5 medium sized shrimp and 3 almonds between breakfast and lunch. I walked and ran 4 miles today and am scarfing down my lunch right now. I'll try to post my weight in the next few days.

[COLOR=deepskyblue] ;) [B][FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3]Good morning!!! Today is my 3rd day of the diet..My apologies for not still having my weight checked..I'll try do it this Saturday..Since yesterday I was not able to blog my morning banana diet, I will squeeze in todays blog what happened yesterday. I had rice noodle for breakfast with shrimp sauce..Then my morning snack was some chinese pancit noodles (again..) with peanuts (in celebnration of the chinese new year). For lunch, between 12nn to 1 pm I just slept..Coz I still feel full. But I had my banana when I woke up and some strawberry crackers..Around 3 pm I ate my supposed to be lunch (I was able to lessen my meal :D) On my way to my next racket, I was really craving for a chocolate cake, thank heavens I did not..whew..:rolleyes: At around 6:30 pm I had some vermicelli pancit noodle (ate a lot of noodles yesterday) and by 8 pm, my last stop..hehe..:D I had some liver adobo with NO rice, about 3-4 small pieces..I was on my bed at 10 pm ready to sleep..[/SIZE][/FONT][/B][/COLOR]
[B][FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=royalblue] So this morning, around 7 am I took my first banana, some longan fruits and water..For my morning snack I will have a bread with peanut butter (salmonella free :D:D)..I also started yesterday to lessen my cup of rice..And even though our chiller is full of L-carnitine drinks (fit & right from del monte and fab from urc) I am continuing to ignore them no matter how tempted I am. I wanna stick to the ever trusted water. I really hope that before my Bday comes next next month..I am the lighter me..[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=3][COLOR=#4169e1]Brangelina did not won any SAG award but I hope they can at least win an Oscar.. I love her make-up for the award though her dress was a-ok it was not that grand..:) But they are ever so charming couple..:)[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B] [/CENTER]

Week 3 Jan 25 thru 31 (Beginning of week)

Posted January 26th, 2009 at 08:50 AM by cathythomas
Ok I' starting week 3 and finding this diet to be a Breeze for me, I'm doing great with my food intake and sticking with the Banana with water (room temp) in the morning. This weekend I fudged a little on Sunday morning and skipped the Banana and water all together, but I had Brunch around 12:00 noon no breakfast at all and basically the brunch was my only meal the whole day. I did have a sanck of Pretzels (1 bag that is 100 calorie per bag) and that was all and I drank lots of waster that night before going to be (4 8oz bottles). I'm feeling really good the weight is coming off and my energy is up. I will let you know what things are like at the end of this week.:)
