HCG Diet (Day 4)

I’m still feeling really sick today. I’ve got the chills, body aches, headache, stuffy head, cough… the usual wintertime crud.

As far as hunger today, I had a difficult time skipping breakfast. I usually eat a pretty hearty breakfast, since it gives me fuel for the rest of the day and I end up eating less later. So I was pretty hungry when lunchtime rolled around at noon. I split that meal into two (waited until I was hungry again, around 3:00pm). Dinner I just ate all at once.

I noticed after lunch that my calorie intake will be under the 500 per day allotment—this is because I’m not interested in eating the breadstick/melba toast. I’m not a huge bread person since my short stint on Atkins. To up my calorie intake for the day, I added extra chicken to my dinner. Starting tomorrow, I will begin eating some protein for breakfast to make up for the bread calories.

Breakfast: water
Lunch: 3/4 cup egg whites (90), apple slices (72)
Snack: 1 cup mixed salad greens (9) with balsamic vinegar
Dinner: Chicken soup (160), 1 stalk celery, cooked in soup (7), 2 cups spinach (14) with 10 extra large strawberries sliced on top (90)

Total Calories: 442
