Hey everybody! My friend told me about this site. I am to the point that if I don't change my lifestyle that I might not get healthy. I am a young mother and wife. I am also in college and have let myself go, really really go. It is sad to say but I feel like I should be atleast 50. I have no energy and would rather sleep than do anything. Sad isn't it. Well anyway, that sums me up and I can't wait to meet new people and start the race that will make me healthy.

Cardiac Unit Diet

Do NOT VARY OR SUBSTITUTE ANY FOOD!!! Eat all foods listed. Salt and pepper can be used, but no other seasonings. This menu is to be used for 3 days at a time. In 3 days you will lose 10 pounds. After 3 days of dieting, you can eat your normal food but DO NOT OVER EAT. After 4 days of normal eating, start on your 3 day menu again.

This menu works on a chemical breakdown and is proven to work. It is used at the Birmingham, Alabama hospital cardiac unit on patients who need to lose lots of weight in a hurry before heart surgery. You can lose 40 pounds per month.

DAY 1:


Black coffee/Tea
1/2 grapefruit
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
1 slice toast


Black coffee/tea
1 cup tuna(in water)/salmon
1 slice bread


Black coffe/tea
3 slices of any type of meat (3 oz)
1 cup of green beans
1 cup of carrots/beets
1 small apple

1 cup of Vanilla ice cream

Day 2

1/2 banana
1 slice of toast
1 egg anyway you like

1 1/4 cups cottage cheese
5 saltine crackers

5 saltine crackers


Black coffee/tea
1 hard boiled egg
1 slice toast


Black coffee/tea
1 cup of tuna
1 cup cauliflower/green beans
1 cup cantaloupe


1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream


Diet Pepsi/ Water instead of coffee/tea
1/2 cup grapefruit juice instead of grapefruit
1 small apple instead of cantaloupe


1 cup tuna = 2 6 oz cans
1/2 grapefruit = 4 oz of grapfruit or 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice
1 oz. cheddar cheese = 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar

This isn't an expensive diet, and only 3 days a week, what would it hurt to see if it really works. Good luck everybody.

    Hey Joy, thanks for checking in with me. My computer has been haywire lately and I've had a hard time keeping up with all of my spark messages. I hope things are going well with you. Looks like you've lost some weight as well. Keep up the good work. I've been kind of stuck at the same weight for the last couple of weeks. I need to kick up my excercise so I can drop some pounds. Take care and I hope you have a great week. Hopefully, I'm gettinga new computer soon so I can keep in touch more.

    Girl you keep up the good work. If you ever start thinking that there is no one around that believes in you just remember two things. One, look up to the heavens and let God know how you are feeling. Then you get your butt in that phone and call me. I will tell you wonderful you are and how proud Iam. I love ya girl and you can do this. We can do this. We are losing!!!!It's almost time to reward ourselfs. Talk to you later.

    I am going to do this because I said I will. I am the only person who can stop and I refuse to do so. I am stronger than I think I am and I will prove it. I will be healthy and I will succeed.
