Six months ago, Qannik topped the scales at 65 pounds (29.5 kg). We set a goal at the time to lose more than 10% of that weight, even though meal time might be Qannik’s favorite moments. Yesterday was Qannik’s vet visit and the big test.
Qannik has been on the green bean diet. For those of you who do not know, the diet is very simple. You reduce the amount of kibble by some amount – and replace the same volume with green beans. In Qannik’s case, his cup of food twice a day has become 2/3 of a cup of food plus 1/3 cup of green beans. Plenty of volume, but less calories.
After six months of diet, you can imagine Qannik’s great desire to go back to full meals. So did he make it?
And the official weigh-in result – 56.5 lbs! Awesome job Qannik!
Of course, you know what happened next, right? The evil Hu-Dad and the evil vet agreed that Qannik’s ideal weight would be 55lbs, so they decided to keep up the green bean diet a little longer. What do you think about that, Qannik?
