You may be curious about the Gary Gulag Diet. This is the diet, created by Gary, that he used to lose 130 pounds. He gained 20 back, and since I am a behemoth and don't even notice my massive thighs because my upper body fat now balances out my lower body, I have joined him.
The rules are very very complex. Do not attempt this unless you under the care of a Gary.
Breakfast: Skip breakfast
Lunch: A small amount of food, for example, 1 container of mac and cheese (220 cals, 4.4 grams of fat).
Dinner at home: Chips and dip. As much as you want. Macadamias and cashews. As much as you want.
Dinner out: Either split a plate or only eat a small percentage of the food they give you.
Snacks: Fruit? None! It is BAD FOR YOU! (Carbs.) Chips are fine. And, any food at work that is lying around free is good for you.
Those are the rules for Phase 1. You don't lose any weight on Phase 1. You do shrink your stomach. You are supposed to get a natural high out of the constant feeling of hunger. I suppose because your brain cells are dying.
We just started Phase 2 today.
Breakfast: Not even coffee.
Lunch: A tomato. Possibly sushi. Maybe a smoothie. Probably not Mac & Cheese, but I haven't asked.
Dinner: a Turkey sandwich every FREAKING night for the rest of your FREAKING life. No condiments. Pepperidge Farm Thin Bread, as much turkey as you want, and some swiss cheese.
Snacks: Ha! Unless it's free food at work.
Same as the above, but no Swiss Cheese on the sandwich.
Same as the above, but only eat half a sandwich.
"Oh no!" you say, "those aren't enough calories. Your body will go into starvation mode."
Doctor Gary says, "For a while, but eventually it gives up and actually starves. How did the Ethiopians look after they were in starvation mode for a while? Pretty skinny."
(As always, consult with your Gary before starting this or any other diet program.)
