Gobbling up GM Diet (Day 4 of 7)

We have now crossed the half way mark, 4 down and 3 more to go. I can't even imagine that we survived three whole days just having fruits and vegetables, that too without a drop oil, fat, protein, sweetener or any processed food. I really feel good about it.

DAY 4

6 to 8 BANANAS and 3 Glasses* of MILK (preferably skimmed) and 8 to 10 glasses of WATER

*(According to the standards : 1 glass = 8 oz)

If Minions were on this diet, I am sure they would repeat day four for all seven days. Even we were happy about the bananas since they were not allowed previously. We kind of like bananas but have them rarely as they are known for putting on weight. But they are very important this diet to balance out everything. For people who do not like milk or cannot digest milk (like me), can replace it with unsweetened soy milk. 

Let me now take you through our Day 4 meals.

BREAKFAST (8:30 am)

Bananas: 2
Milk: 1 glass


SNACK (11:00 am)

Cinnamon Banana Mousse

Banana: 2
Ground Cinnamon: 1/2 tsp
Vanilla extract: 1/4 tsp

I froze the sliced bananas for an hour, then blended them with ground cinnamon and vanilla extract with my hand blender until smooth and creamy. The texture was almost perfect even without using eggs or whipped cream which typically go into the making of mousse. It really tasted good.


LUNCH (1:00 pm)

Banana-Chocolate Milk Shake

Banana: 1
Milk: 1 glass
Vanilla extract: 1 tsp
Cocoa powder: 1 tbsp (unsweetened)

Just blended all the ingredients with cold milk and it was awesome. The sweetness from the banana is more than enough to sweeten the shake.


EVENING SNACK (4:30 pm)

Banana: 1

This did not call for a picture.

DINNER (8:30 pm)

Banana-Vanilla Milk Shake

Banana: 1
Vanilla extract: 1 1/2 tsp
Milk: 1 glass

Just blended everything together.


HOW DID WE FEEL ABOUT DAY FOUR

This day was a bit challenging as we felt hungry from time to time but it was not unbearable. I tried to make it as exciting as possible. Drinking the recommended water helped and also spacing out the meals.

Day 5 sounds interesting to us, get back here tomorrow to find out all about it.
