Week 2 | Jessica: Since I started with the Orgasmic Diet, I have noticed that my daily bathroom habit has been not so daily (need I say more) even though I have been eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. I assume it is because I am consuming much more protein than before and possibly from taking extra iron as well. I think that I will have to start incorporating a fiber laxative into my diet to help me stay more regular. I have also noticed that my nails are a lot harder, and not to mention my much higher libido. I can’t believe I’m actually feeling this way. I never thought I would. I think my husband is secretly wondering if he can keep up. Ha, ha, ha!
I have to admit that feeling sexual also makes me feel more beautiful and confident. It’s funny how they go hand in hand. Even though I have not yet had an orgasm during sex, I am still hopeful. I have already ordered and received my PC muscle exerciser. I have been faithfully doing my kegels with resistance and will tell you more next week. Until then, I’ll keep practicing.
Jenny: Well, this past week has been quite interesting for me to say the least. I have to admit that I had a little trouble finding all of the supplements and vitamins that I needed in my town and had to go to several different stores before I finally found all of them.
Week 2 | Jenny: I prepared my menu for the week and bought all of the groceries necessary to prepare my meals. I am lucky in that I raise a large garden each year. I have a lot of vegetables in my freezer that are always readily available. I have squash, zucchini, green beans, carrots, peas, tomatoes, corn, asparagus, and even okra. Yes, getting all the ingredients was a bit of a hassle, along with all my routine chores, but I am hoping that this diet will help me, so I can’t really complain.
Being that I am a diabetic, I had to adapt my diet to be careful with certain items.
For instance, some of the adaptations I had to make were:
- I use a sugar substitute rather than sugar
- I can't drink orange juice, so I just drank water with my breakfast
- I use whole wheat bread rather than white bread
- I can't eat white rice, so I use brown rice
- I always cook with extra light olive oil
- I use low-fat, low cholesterol butter substitute
- I do use a low-fat salad dressing, but I don't put the salad dressing on my salad, I dip the bites of salad into the dressing each time.
- I use an egg substitute rather than eggs for my breakfast
- Instead of drinking iced tea, I have been drinking either water with a slice of lemon, a small glass of Sprite or sugar-free white grape or apple juice.
My diet menu this week consisted of the following:
For breakfast I usually have an egg, a slice of bacon cooked in the microwave, and a slice of whole wheat toast. Some mornings I just have a cup of yogurt with either a sliced apple or a few strawberries from my garden. I also had an omelet cooked with onions, tomatoes, peppers, and a little cheese. I also had a small glass of skim milk.
For lunch, some of the things I had were: a cup of soup and a salad with a little salad dressing, low-fat cottage cheese with strawberries, bananas, peaches or apple slices; a Chef’s salad consisting of salad greens topped with lean ham, turkey, cheese, and a hard-boiled egg; rotisserie chicken chopped and made into a salad and eaten on whole wheat bread. One day I was out so I had a grilled chicken salad that consisted of salad greens topped with pieces of grilled chicken, tomatoes, onions, hard boiled eggs, and a small amount of cheese.
For dinner I had a 3-4 oz baked chicken breasts with broccoli and some squash; a 4-oz hamburger patty cooked with sauteed onions, a side of corn, and a small salad; a 4-oz boneless pork chop, spinach, baked squash, and some cottage cheese; and 6-oz can of tuna salad on a slice of whole wheat bread; some rotisserie chicken, along with some steamed carrots and some asparagus.
I just started on the Orgasmic Diet this week, so I really haven't yet noticed any effects, positive or negative. This diet really isn't much different from my normal diabetic diet, other than the addition of all of the supplements and the vitamins.
I am looking forward to seeing what the next few weeks bring though. I am very hopeful that between the diet, the supplements and vitamins, and the PC muscle exercises that my libido will really be enhanced and I will one day soon be able to achieve orgasm.
Now, I just have to figure out what I am going to do when my libido does really enhance considering the fact that I am single now. LOL. I guess that is one more area of my life that I need to work on. Hmm...See you next week...
Week 2 | Nikki: I am trying to remain optimistic about this Orgasmic Diet, but it is really time consuming. After a week of measuring my food so that I can log it into my online nutrition tracker to ensure that I am eating the recommended 40-30-30, carbohydrates, protein, and fat, I am just about ready to pull my hair out. I’ve been pretty good at “eyeballing” serving sizes, but I am making a conscious effort to stick to the magic numbers from the diet. I have a love for red meat and seafood, so I have to pay close attention not to go over my daily allowance for protein.
Before starting the Orgasmic Diet, I’ve either skipped breakfast or had a breakfast that consisted of carbohydrates only. Since starting the diet, I make time to prepare complete breakfast meals that include Canadian bacon, scrambled egg whites, and fruit or egg white omelets with peppers, onions, mushrooms, ham and salsa on top…yummy!
I was so caught up in meal planning that I put off purchasing the necessary vitamins for the diet. Trying to juggle work, exercise, and extracurricular activities for my son kept me from making it to the herb store to purchase what seemed like their entire supply of fish oil. What should have been a simple task, ended up being quite the story to tell.
I headed to my local herb store with my flagged, highlighted, and dog eared Orgasmic Diet book. When I arrived, there was an elderly man stocking the shelves while an elderly lady smiled and welcomed me to the store. I wanted to turn around and come back another day, but I just couldn’t see being able to make it back to the store in the near future. With her assistance, we decided on a high quality ultra-concentrated fish oil that’s supposedly burp free. Later, I find this to be far from true! I pull out my calculator to begin calculating my daily intake. This sweet elderly lady kept insisting that I would not need more than 2 a day because the bottle states “3 times more absorption!” As she grew more and more curious about my need for taking so much fish oil, I kept changing the subject by picking up other products. However, she kept coming back to my need for so much fish oil. One hundred and thirty six dollars later, I left the store with fish oil, magnesium, calcium, zinc and a few other items!
There’s no turning back now…until next time!
