May Trial

May

New month, new trial! From previous posts, you can see that I love counting macros. However, the point of this blog was for me to try out different things so for May I’m going to try out…the South Beach Diet! The only difference with this trial though is I’m just going to do the first phase which is two weeks long and then decide if I want to do phase two for the final two weeks, continue on with phase one, or go back to counting macros. Time will tell!

What I’m looking forward to with this trial is that I’m going to follow the exact meal plan as much as I can.  I’ve done South Beach before where I just eat any of the food that’s “allowed” but I thought it would be good to actually follow exactly what they recommend for the three meals and two snacks every day.

I’m also considering (emphasis on that word) doing a two week caffeine detox at the same time. I had previously decided to give up pop starting on May 1st but I was thinking about it at work last night and I think it might be beneficial to give up coffee for two weeks. We shall see, it’ll probably be determined on Friday morning when I wake up depending on how tired I am haha
