My GM Diet Experience - Day 4 – Milk and Banana Diet
Though I love bananas, having to go through the entire day with just milk and bananas is slightly disturbing.

And as the diet promised, I did not have any food cravings and I was pretty proud of myself.

Well, I started the day at 6am with 2 bananas. I knew that I will be hungry in 2 hours, so I also made a soup consisting of 1/4 cabbage, 1 onions, 2 tomatoes, chili flakes, vinegar and soy sauce. I suppose it was my humble imitation of the Chinese hot and sour soup. It was not too bad, it was Ok. And as I predicted, I was hungry by 8am. I had a glass of my cabbage soup. At 12pm, I ate a half of a papaya, 2 bananas and a glass of milk. I haunted the kitchen again at 3 pm to have 1 banana and a glass of the cabbage soup again. One sick combination, I know! At 6 pm, I had the remaining papaya and had a glass of milk. At 9pm I had 3 bananas, a glass of milk and a glass of the cabbage soup again. And I was more than glad that the day had finally come to an end. Goodness!
