This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

In an effort to get back on track after Mardi Gras, Anne and Jon try out dietician Molly Kimball’s 3 day diet.  On day one, they already cheat by putting creamer in their coffee and sneaking in a couple crawfish.  If you’d like to try the 3 day diet for yourself, click here for the menus and recipes.


Day 1

Breakfast: One La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious High Fiber/Low Carb 50-calorie tortilla (or any 50-80 calorie whole grain tortilla), topped with a quarter-cup shredded 2 percent cheese, melted, plus 10 strawberries

Lunch: One link of chicken sausage dipped into yellow mustard or Dijon mustard, with six Triscuit Thin Crisps (triangles, not squares; any flavor); plus a half cup cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, or red or yellow pepper sliced into strips

Snack: A half-cup low-fat cottage cheese with a quarter cup blueberries (with optional no-calorie sweetener)

Dinner: Meat sauce of three to four ounces extra-lean ground beef in red sauce with less than 55 calories and 270 mg sodium per serving (my favorite: Sal & Judy’s Heart Smart pasta sauce); serve over one cup spaghetti squash


Pasta Swap: Spaghetti Squash

By Chef Marc Gilberti of Ochsner Health System


One 3-pound spaghetti squash

Cut squash in half lengthwise, discarding seeds. Place squash halves, cut sides down, in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; add water to dish to a depth of ½-inch. Bake at 350; for 45 minutes or until squash is tender when pierced with a fork. Remove squash from dish, and cool. Scrape inside of squash with a fork to remove spaghetti-like strands. Season as desired.
