I finally figured out why a cousin-in-law of mine has stopped asking "are diet pills effective?" It's because she's figured out a new diet that works for her.
Grapes and watermelon diet! Haha. At first glance, I was like, isn't that all sugar and water? And this cousin-in-law has hypertension problems. But she says she only eats about 1/4 kg of grapes per week and the rest is watermelons. She does get to eat normal fare on weekends, when she goes home to her family in the province. Her weight loss has been dramatic and at least, she hasn't been beset by her hypertension problems.
Now, I can eat watermelon easy but I know I can't take on this kind of diet since I am breastfeeding. Plus, am not sure it offers enough nutrients (then again, she does eat normally on weekends). At least the bananas and boiled eggs offer nutrients, I think, on a daily basis.
But breastfeeding gets me super hungry. Just this morning, I was literally shaking from hunger by the time I got to gulp down milk because Yamee was feeding all night and I pumped milk first before I had breaskfast.
But come February, diet I must, one way or another.
