Weighing in at 107 kg. My kidneys ached during the night. My ankle which sometimes gives me problems is also sore. Apart from that I, J. Hardspear de la Azotea am feeling quite good. Had to catch a 6 o’ clock flight, ran around all day and had a slight craving for a cigarette for the first time in 4 days. Landed at Lanseria again at 18:10 and back home just before 19:00. The food cravings are not so bad during the day anymore (the first two days were terrible), but I tend to get hungry in the evenings.
I had a very good day yesterday (day
3). I decided to make my vegetable soup
for when I have to start eating again.
(Since you cannot start on solids straight away after having eaten
nothing for 10 days, you have to start with orange juice on day 1 and 2 after
the diet and on the evening of day 2 one can start to have vegetable
soup). I feel that I would need some
serious nutrition by then, so I made a strong beef stock from scratch. This took 4 hours. I then sautéed onion, carrot and celery in my
largest pot until it caramelized. To that
I added my lovely beef stock and a truck load of vegetables. I simmered that for two hours and dished out
half of the vegetables and blitzed it with a blending stick and poured it
back. The result – thick vegetable soup
with whole chunks of veg still in. I
then put it in containers and stuck it in the freezer for when I am coming off
of the diet…
