I'm glad that the Franken-Diet doesn't involve complex algebraic equations for success. If it did those things, I wouldn't have been the one who devised it. But, like any eating system, there is the daily basic math with which to contend. And, as I figure out the numbers for foods I commonly eat, it'll get even easier!
Sprite Zero (wheeze, wheeze-- Aspartame!)
SugarFree Jell-O (gasp, wheeze, Aspartame again!)
Super Massive Omelet with bacon and cheese (and chili powder! Yum!)
Burger King side salad with Ranch Dressing and grilled chicken
Diet Dr. Pepper (gurgle... Aspartame.)
NUMBERS: 15/20 Carbs, 36/36 WW Pts.
PROGRESS: I stayed within my limits on Day 2! Yay! This will get harder with fewer points...
GOALS: I know I have a slight Aspartame/Phenylalanine allergy. (Closing of throat and a bit o' anxiety attack. Yeah, I know! Weird.) Yet I avoid the stuff long enough to forget that it's worse than I realize, and hence long enough to buy lots of Sprite Zero.
1. Remember that I want to simplify my diet to REAL FOODS and cut addictions to fake foods.
2. Drag out the consumption of Sprite Zero as long as I can to avoid symptoms and then DON'T BUY MORE!
