Day 1 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: I Have Clearly Lost My Mind

Bear with me, because I’m not thinking very clearly. I have, for some reason that I now forget, given up caffeine, sugar, wheat, and dairy, at least for awhile. In theory, for 28 days. I’m starting off with a week, because I can’t absorb that kind of commitment all at once.

Of course, right now, I can’t absorb much of anything. This is because I haven’t been without caffeine in, oh, fifteen years. Even when I gave up coffee for awhile at my thyroid doc’s request, I drank Diet Coke all day. (And yes, I knew that wasn’t what he was hoping for, but when it comes to dealing with medical professionals, I’m all “exact words!”)

Anyway, it’s only been a few hours, but this is what I look like already:


Yup. It’s going well.

One thought on “Day 1 of the Fast Metabolism Diet: I Have Clearly Lost My Mind

  1. Your life will suck for four days. I gotta say, though — I did this back in October and I am pretty glad not to be on caffeine anymore. It’s nice to wake up now and not be all foggy and groping for the coffee. Now I am afraid to go back to it b/c I don’t want to be that addicted to it again. It’s a conundrum! But it is SHITTY for those four cold-turkey days. I haven’t had a single zit since giving it up, either..
