Does that make you think of leprechauns??
Pretty evil looking….
Unfortunately, I’m not talking about either one. It’s actually my diet that’s an evil green face. I am currently attempting to lose 6 pounds for my next meet. On have been on this “diet” called Green Faces for the last two weeks and have not lost a pound. The problem is not the diet, it’s me (as is the case with every stinkin diet I’ve ever tried). I’m supposed to eat anything that had or will have a face (meat, eggs, etc.) and Green vegetables. No fruit, no sugar, no dairy (for the love of all things Holy can I just have piece of CHEESE), and no Coke. Yeah, that last one is a b*tch. They all are actually. It sucks.
This is exactly how I feel….all day. Watch out!
There are pluses though. It reaffirms my confusion on all things vegetarian. Here’s an excerpt from the description on T Nation: “It pains me just a little to say, but vegetarians are not welcome here. The primary protein source of the Green Faces Diet is an assortment of good ol’ animal flesh. If it had adorable eyes, a cute button nose, and a pair of equally-cuddly parents… it’s what’s for dinner (and breakfast, and lunch, and snack time).”
Poor fuzzy bunny….

In order to convince myself to do this, I started out with a few exceptions. One- I allowed some fruit everyday. It’s summer, come on. Second- I snuck a Coke at lunch time. Third- I drink milk with my protein powder. Oh, and there might have been one measly ice cream cone in there. I coasted while loosely following the plan for the last two weeks and managed to lose ZERO pounds. So now, it’s about to get a whole lot worse. The exceptions are going to have to go. No fruit, no Coke. But seriously, I am NOT drinking protein powder with water. I draw the line there. So a little milk stays, but that’s it for dairy. The rest will be all about gnawing on cold hunks of meat. I get crabby just thinking about it.
I’m just sayin. This is gonna get ugly.
