The Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwich Diet

After catching a stomach bug two weeks ago, I ended up in one of those terrible connundra where one has to choose between alleviating hunger and winding up feeling miserable. And yes, did I choose wrong many times...many times...ugh.

Upon coming out of it, I thought I would bounce back really quickly. I also thought that vegetables had to be OK--I mean, what could be easier to digest? I was wrong on both fronts. Ugh (yet again).

So, I am introducing The Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwich Diet. For some unexplained reason, ever since I semi-regained my ability to eat, I have been able to eat canned soup (not vegetable, of course) and grilled cheese sandwiches. Coupled with the bug, I dropped about 8 pounds.

Oprah, eat your heart out.

If it's good soup and tasty grilled cheese this diet could catch on !

I haven't had a grilled cheese sandwich in quite a while (& as yet I have had no lunch.) Thanks for the idea! I hope you feel better.

I could eat grilled cheese every day if I was allowed to eat them. Not on my diet plan. :(

Well, you never know, you could write a book about it and become a millionaire. But jokes aside, hope you get better soon!

WOW
7 pounds?
Cannot be good.
Hope you are fully recoverd.
As to the canned soup... (!!!)
Real cheese, or american?

I have found good old chicken soup to consistently worked throughout my life - even if from a Knorr bullion.
And, toast ... plain or buttered toast.

Weight loss, that I don't ever manage - not even in under those conditions - which I very rarely get...

OOh. That's a hit. Are you still tired?

I can NOT have a football season without cream of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Anything else is icing, but those things are CRIT.IC. and AL.

And I don't think I've ever dropped even a smidgen on that diet, so you're like some super pilgrim chick, imho.

If one eats three grilled cheeses in one sitting is the diet still effective?
