Temporary Weight Loss?
I spent the days sleeping. Almost all day. I didn't have much of an appetite and when I did eat I just ended up with more nausea and diarrhea. So I started on the BRAT diet. I'd never been on this diet as a kid but heard that it was supposed to work wonders for stopping diarrhea. If you're not familiar the BRAT diet is made up of Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast. Not tubular cased meats as my husband first thought. I'm fine with the RAT of the diet but bananas for every meal got old. Fast. Let me say that it does seem to help but after 3 days of eating the exact same thing I'd be happy to not have that combination of foods for ... oh... I don't know... ever.
I weighed in at my meeting today and found out I'd lost 7.4 pounds in a week. Maybe the BRAT diet isn't so bad? Then thinking about having bananas, rice, applesauce and toast for dinner? Nah... I'll happily go back to eating regular healthy food.
