*My last pear (from our tree)!
My new plan:
A la Tim Ferriss, my recent health and fitness fave, I am giving up a few foods and following Ferriss. In his book, The Four Hour Body, he has 4 rules to live by:
#1 No white carbs(mainly flour and processed junk)
#2 Eat the same few meals over and over (proteins, legumes, veggies)
#3 Don't drink calories (just water and red wine!)
#4 Take one day off per week (this would take a lot of time to explain, but he thoroughly explains it in his book)
I am going to follow this and add a few rules of my own:
#5 Fermented foods are ok (although, I probably will not be adding cheese, since I'm not much of a fan anyway...)
#6 No Fruit: just to clarify, this is a part of Ferriss's rules, although I think I eat WAY more fruit than veggies, so I am going to adhere to that rule for the most part. VEGGIE UP!
THANKFULLY, my birthday lands on Saturday this year, which means it is my day off and I get to enjoy whatever I want!
As I go through with this experiment, I plan to document how I feel, what I am eating and how my body is changing.
So far today, as my first day: I ate cottage cheese for breakfast and Chipotle chicken salad with guac for lunch! No snacks are needed for now. This diet has kept me full!
