no, I don't love Salmon, but I need to get in shape  and I am working on doing just that !
I am drinking nothing but ice water... this is just for the first 3 days to get you started.. But, I AM eating fish at every meal, mainly salmon it's hard to remember to eat your protein first....
3 egg omelet and/or 4-6 oz. grilled salmon
(I do not recommend smoked salmon or lox on the three-day diet because of the salt intake)
cup cooked oatmeal (not instant)
(Cooked oatmeal is a great source of fiber, low glycemic carbohydrates)
2” wedge of cantaloupe or 1/3 cup fresh berries
(Cantaloupe is very hydrating to the skin and contains important antioxidants – blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries are high in antioxidants)
No Juice, No Coffee or Toast
(If you normally drink large amounts of coffee, drink black or green tea to prevent caffeine withdrawal)
8-12 oz. spring water
(Per meal)
Lunch
4 – 6 oz. grilled salmon
(Option: you can also use canned salmon and mix a little mayo and fresh squeezed lemon)
2 cups green salad made with romaine lettuce garnish or other dark leafy greens Dressing: extra virgin olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon to taste
1 kiwi fruit or cantaloupe and berries as above
8 – 12 oz. spring water
Snack
1 apple
2 oz. slice of turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt
Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts or almonds
(Great source of fatty acids and folic acid)

Dear Lord,
Some days are just colder than others. I need to feel the warmth of your face shining upon me, Lord. I want to be covered by your radiance, resting in the palm of your hand. Where I feel secure and saved. Lead me back to this place.
Your promises will unfold as the day progresses. And I will gather these even as I am uncertain about how the day will play out because through your promises come renewal and wholeness.
 
AMEN
