It’s done. The weird experiment that was the cabbage soup diet is complete. Firstly, I think I deserve a pat on the back in mammoth proportions for having the willpower to stick to it. Trumpet duly blown, I thank you. That said, it was just a week, so I won’t get too carried away with myself.
Day four, “banana day” was fairly uneventful (except for the freak hailstones and random thunder and lightning, which clearly had nothing to do with my diet and everything to do with bloody typical Scottish summer weather.) My breakfast was as planned, a bowl of mashed banana and lots of skimmed milk. Little Monster Blue declared that it looked like porridge. “I just have mine Cheerios ‘stead.” he said screwing up his nose as he peered into my bowl. Little Princess Pink disagreed. “It looks nothing like porridge.” She announced, “It looks like gunk!” She was right of course, especially when I left it sitting in the bowl longer than I should have and it started to turn slightly beige.
