Rocco DiSpirito’s The Pound a Day Diet, Week 2

Hm, let me say that week 2 on Rocco’s diet was not successful.  Three days I had minor to major cheats (two date nights and a family trip to Five Guys where I was able to resist the burger but not the fries) and didn’t lose any weight.  That doesn’t make me a happy camper.  I’m not throwing in the towel.  I’m back on this week until Thursday and Friday.

Let’s talk shirataki noodles.  Ever had them?  They are in quite a few of these recipes as a pasta replacement.  There are tofu brands but I’ve only tried the soy varieties.  A little more about them if you aren’t familiar.  My regular grocery store didn’t have them, but  the health one did.  I tried the angel hair with a teriaki sauce (it was okay), the fettuccine with a cheese sauce (inedible, threw it didn’t away instead of eating it), and the spaghetti with a peanut and a lemon sauce (both were good).  I think they are best if you cook them long enough but if you’ve any experience with them let me know because they are a great carb replacement and I’d like to know if there is a trick to them.

I forgot to take a picture this week but I did have a favorite recipe.



So, week 2 I managed to keep off the first 6 pounds but wasn’t able to lose more, but I can’t completely blame that on the diet since I ate 2 meals out and had a bunch of Five Guys Fries (they were so worth it though!).

  1. Good luck! Losing weight is tough. I’m just trying to not gain more weight while in Japan! It’s so tough.

    • Shirataki noodles are Japanese. Do they serve them there?

  3. Maintenance is just as good as losing. You didn’t gain the weight in a couple of months, I’m sure, so just have patience that it will come off eventually. “Forgive” yourself and just move on. I don’t think I could make it through the holidays being on a diet. Who am I kidding? I can’t stick to any diet, anytime. 🙂
