What's goin on everybody? This is your boy Cipha
Sounds. As you know, with the help of Dr. Ian K. Smith from Celebrity Fit Club (sidebar: I guess I'm not a big enough celebrity
to actually be on the show I gotta work on that) I've decided to live a
The first step of his "Fat Smash Diet"
is getting on a nine-day detox. I was little nervous at first, but as you can
see, obviously I survived.
Saying the word "detox" to a junk food
junkie sounds unbearable. Now in the last entry I told you that the detox
consists of only eating:
than four egg whites a dayOatmealYogurtTwo cups
of brown riceAll the
water you likeChick
peas, beans, tofu and lentils
Half the things on the list smell so bad I've
never wanted to eat before and the other half I don't mind having here and
there but I wouldn't want to eat every day.
The first day I was feeling great it's like I was
starting a new mission. But by the third I was grumpy and cranky, and my
peoples didn't wanna be around me. On top of that, I forgot that I had to leave
for Vegas to handle some bidness.
Have you ever been to Vegas!? It's a junkie's heaven!! There's nothing but In-N-Out Burgers, Jack In
the Boxes and a million all-you-can-eat buffets. I definitely almost slipped.
Every time I would exit our hotel I would pass a fast food court the smell
alone would make me want to peel my skin off.
I learned to take another route.
I also learned that when you decide to go on a
diet, your "friends" f**k with you the most. These b**ches would tempt me with all sorts
of stuff. My best friend would get
annoyed at me and would say things like, "F**k that diet sh**."
In the past that would have been enough to make me
quit, but this time around I really wanted to give it my all I needed to lace
up my combat boots and jump in. I
realized that this was a solo mission I was on.
I ended up having to eat alone.
After the 4th or 5th day though, it got much
easier. The sugar and grease starts to leave your body, you get used to eating
the stuff on the list, and you even start to think of creative ways to keep it
I haven't mastered the time to do the workout
thing yet, so what I eat has been really important. After the 7th or 8th day people started
asking me, "Are you losing weight?"
The hardest part is over now. Next time I'll tell you about the next phase
of the diet called the FOUNDATION.
