I'm trying something new to me...Dr. Joel Fuhrman's 90/10 plan recently featured by Dr. Oz. The testimonies look promising and this is the time of year to go this way for sure. It is basically 90% fruits, veggies, nuts and whole grains with the final 10% given to fats, meat and dairy. Dr. Oz touted it as his approved 7-Day Crash Diet. We'll see. I started this a couple days ago and stocked up with lots of fresh veggies and fruits as well as more frozen berries and lots of canned beans, something I love and use a lot anyway. After failing to hit calorie goal yesterday, I'm adding nuts in a couple places today and some steel cut oats. If I can get all of my planned food down, I will meet all my goals except that I will have an excess of fiber which was true for yesterday as well. I think that is a good thing for me as I tend towards constipation despite drinking lots of water. So, since I think I can do anything for a week, I'm eager to see how my results compare and kickstart summer a bit. Some of the folks who commented on line have followed this plan as a life style for quite some time with good success. We'll see. A little change has always been good whenever I've felt in a bit of a rut. Time will tell.
