Name Change, and Dr. Fuhrman, eh?


Monday, June 04, 2012

So I changed my name for privacy reasons. This way I can open up my spark page to the whole community.

And I just finished watching Dr. Oz, who had Dr. Fuhrman as his guest. What are everyone's thoughts on him?

I'm especially curious because after literally months of weighing all my food, being nearly obsessed about having a balanced diet according to the food tracker, and interval training my heart out, I've been getting nowhere. No pounds nor inches lost. So I thought I'd kickstart my system by giving my sore arches a rest, lowering my carbs, and eating around 1000 calories per day.

But Dr. Fuhrman's plan is almost the opposite of what I've been doing over the past week. He's not about protein at all. And pro fruits, veggies, and whole grains, so in other words, carbs. So it's like confusion city right now. To try his plan or not to try? That is the question.

  I am now on Day 2 of a veggie/fruit juice fast aftercwatching "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". Dr Fuhrman is in that video and I watched it because I saw it mentioned repeatedly on his website. I was planning on doing Dr Fuhrman's plan and after watching this I decided to start with a 7-day juice cleanse. Makes sense to me. My husband has eaten this way for years (has at lease 1 green drink a day and could never live withoutbhis VitaMix) and is as healthy as can be at 59 yrs old. I'm having some hormone issues and am hoping this will jumpstart my body.

    I've been aiming for 25 - 30 grams protein within half hour of getting up. Another of dr oz's guests suggested that. now this? and doc oz says it's the best "diet" he's ever seen? why doesn't he tell us it's not for everyone?

what concerns me is folks talk about lowering fats and sugars, but what do you hear about lowering sodium? there is so much hidden in freggies, let alone some of the recipes the guests prepare.

my doc said low carb. i took that to mean processed carbs.

    Thanks! I've actually been considering more green leafy vegetables lately since another concern of mine is lack of fibre in a higher-protein diet. :)

    Dr Fuhrman is great on nutrition. You can watch his video on YouTube.com

But You could also do low carb but eat lots of green leafy veggies but give up all starches and sugars and see a more aggressive weight loss. Since non-starchy veggies are naturally low in carbs, you will automatically see a drop in calories and carb numbers.
