The Diet Experiment

I'm about to embark on a diet experiment.  I'll call it the stomach growl diet.  I did it about 10 years ago and lost ten pounds a month.  It's been on my mind for a while and I finally decided to give it a go again after reading this.


The trick is whether I have the self control to wait for my stomach to growl.  I learned this when I was doing the "Weigh Down Work Shop" by Gwen Shamblin.  I hate missing meals with my family, so I need to occasionally have a drink of milk if the tummy growls before dinner is done.  I will also need to get more sleep.

Wish me luck!

  1. Luck! Especially about the sleep :) I love the simplicity of using the physical signals as clues.

  3. Thanks, Hannah! I am already down (daily weighing) two pounds, but I usually need to average that out over a week before I believe it is weight loss and just not some change like dehydration, excess lactation (LOL), etc. I also have a funky cycle whereby I lose weight at the end of my cycle when most retain water. Go figure.

    Anyway, it's funny. Once I decided to do it, it was easy even though I've been pondering this for 6 months. I guess I just had to be ready to do it!

    I'll post regular updates.
