I would like everyone at SE to know that I am on Day 2 of my hamburger cleanse and it is going well. I usually don't feel hungry at all for up to four hours, and then I find myself in the kitchen struggling to adhere to a strict diet I read about in my dreams one afternoon while napping. I can only consume tea, bread, onions, mayo, and oh yeah, ground beef.
It's been a rough 36 hours so far but I know it's going to pay, and I am reminded so every time I bite through the crisp, salty crust of a ground beef rib patty and suck the burger juices up from the buttery, toasted bottom bun.
