I've received some requests for all the details of the oatmeal diet. So whether you want it or not, here it is in all of it's glory (or foolishness)...
It has gone through a slight metamorphosis since it's inception, which I wrote about previously.
First of all, I buy oatmeal in the 100 calorie packets, some "regular" flavored, some "sugar free maple."
3 bowls (1.5 packs each) of oatmeal with sprinkle of TVP and sprinkle of fiber one cereal.
3 pieces of lefse
1 viactiv chew
2 wraps consisting of 1 piece of lefse, 1 piece of tofurkey, slice of tomato, bunch of sprouts, one carb ketchup and mustard.
75 calories each!
Large bowl of oatmeal with TVP and fiber one cereal
One and a half medium sized acorn squash.
one viactive chew
Total Calories 1560
My basal metabolic rate = 1300
Lactation plus excercise = 1500
Net loss: 1420
While this may be a lot of calories for someone who is not exercising 2 hours a day and not breastfeeding, it is easy to eat less oatmeal or less gords as needed to suit your personal weight loss needs.

"Children are fascinated by the ordinary and can spend timeless moments watching sunlight play with dust. Their restlessness they learn from you. It is you who are thinking of there when you are here. It is you who thinks of then instead of now. Stop. Let your children become the teachers and you the student" - William Martin
