I could live with this diet for a while. When you put the shake mix through the blender, it gets all nice and frothy and creamy. But next week, we get bumped to the 70-calorie version, which, I hear, tastes horrible. I’ll think about that next week.
Nicole continues to make fantastic progress, her drug rehab nearly complete. She has gained 25 pounds, up to 110, and says she no longer craves crack cocaine.
I hope Nicole appreciates my efforts on her behalf, but when I told her about this diet, she said, “Don’t do it for me, Ma. Do it for you.”
I can’t figure her out.
