Aztec Diet Day 7 Fasting

Stats: weighed in up another 3 pounds, net loss: 3 pounds

Breakfast: Nothing; Lunch: Nothing: Snack: Nothing; Dinner: Nothing; Snack:

I don’t understand the weight gain. I’m hoping it will settle out in a few days. It’s making no sense to me.

I had no appetite after chugging a quart of salt water at 6:30 a.m. I decided to go with this and fast until I got hungry. It’s now 6 p.m. I’ve had a few glasses of water, but nothing else. I have no idea why this is happening. If you knew me, you’d be worried. I’m big on regular meals.

Numerous fasting proponents insist that it is healthful to give your digestive system a rest from time to time. The entire Paul Bragg family (of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar and Liquid Aminos) make a practice of fasting one day a week.

I’ve always meant to give fasting a shot. We’ll see how this plays out.

  1. Fasting is a great way to give your digestive system a break. I do Intermittent Fasting and I feel a lot better for it. If you’re ‘bunged up,’ your body may just be telling you it needs to clear itself out before you eat again.


  2. I don’t mean to sound like a downer, but……the weight gain could be coming from using your own recipes. My husband and I are both following the diet and using only Dr. Bob’s recipes. I noticed in some of yours, you are using quite a bit of nuts and whole avocados. And it is recommended that you have 1/2 c. cottage cheese for snacks, not a whole cup. He does say in the book if you are not losing to reduce the amounts of fruit your using. I know that I have a hard time with the veggie mixtures, I can hardly get the whole thing down. But I believe that the combinations must be the trick. Good luck to you on your journey. Let’s Get Fit!


  3. My net loss for the week has been 4 pounds, give or take a few tenths. Any week in which I lose 4 pounds is a good one. As for the fluctuations, they happen. I’m paying attention to them, but I’m not going to freak about it unless everything stalls. It may be that you are right, and I need to cut back amounts on my smoothies.

    I am listening to my body. Last week I was much hungrier. Yesterday not at all, and today only a little. I’ve been adjusting my intake accordingly. This makes more sense to me in the long run as any diet that has you fighting yourself is one you won’t stick with.

    I do beg to differ about the cottage cheese, though. I just checked, on page 48 he says 1 cup non-fat cottage cheese. It’s right below orange and above apple.

    If you are having trouble with the vegetable mixes, try baby spinach instead of kale. Baby spinach is milder than kale and blends beautifully. You give up a little on the nutrition, but you gain on taste.

    Best wishes to you and your husband, and keep me posted about your experience.
