I’ve just passed days 10 and 11 and am currently in day 12. I’m back on track. I actually feel like I could continue this indefinitely. I’ve spent the time to figure out what I CAN eat, rather than focusing on what I can’t. Some of you have asked for a list of what I’m eating on a daily basis. Here is yesterday’s food intake:
6:30 am Breakfast shake – unsweetened coconut milk, water, 1 scoop Vega protein powder, 2 Tblsp plain brown rice protein, 1 cup of mixed berries, 1-2 cups raw spinach.
10:30 1 rice tortilla wrap with hummus (nothing measured), mixed green salad with carrots, peppers, cauliflower, 1/4 avocado, with home made dressing: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard.
2:30 1 nutty ball made with nuts (no peanuts), protein powder, and almond butter.
3:30 1 plum, 1 nutty ball, 1/2 sweet potato with 2-3 crumbled walnuts
6:30 Lamb steak, stir fried veggies, 1 glass red wine
Feel free to give me feedback or ask questions. More than likely, others will benefit from the answers to your questions. My intention is to have this process help others who are curious about how they can make something work for them.
I still stand by my contention that the best diet is the one that works for you, helps you feel good, and allows your weight to normalize and stay there, wherever that might be.
