Continuing the diet, I've gotten some comments about what I'm eating and I'd like to clarify.
I don't JUST eat meat, cheese and eggs - these foods just fit in with the diet perfectly. Several years ago when I first started trying out diets like this, the first one that I'd tried was the Atkins diet. In the diet book I'd found, they recommended that for the first while, you eat a maximum of 3 cups of lettuce, or 2 cups lettuce and 1 cup broccoli a day. The other thing they said was that you can eat 20 grams of carbs per day.
I'm not going to quite that extreme on this diet. I know that the Atkins idea was that you shouldn't get huge dumps of sugar into your body because that's what causes people to get fat. I found out that the GI diet follows a similar idea, and that they've taken a closer look at how foods affect your blood sugar levels.
Mixing the two ideas, I try to have between 1 and 3 cups of low glycemic index vegetables a day, along with the meat, cheese and eggs. Other foods that I find work on this diet: mushrooms, onions, tomatoes (in moderation, GI is 15) and zucchinis (also in moderation with GI of 15).
