Cutting out foods I love
Monday, April 01, 2013
So this week is going to be a bit of a challenge. I have been cutting down on many things, because, of course, most of my favorites are what make you fat in the first lace. I have already cut out cheese, and coffee, for the most part, and this week, I will be cutting back to meat only two days a week, and just chicken, or lean pork, and no alcohol. I will also try to do no chocolate, but I have a small addiction brewing. In place of these things, I am going to eat more beans, some tofu, and a lot of vegetables. For the next month or so I am going to try and follow this book "Eat to to live". It mainly says that you have to cut out all dairy, meat, coffee, alcohol, and processed foods and eat 1lb of raw veggies, and 1 lb of cooked veggies, all the fruit you want, 1 oz of nuts, at least of cup of beans, and only one cup of grains a day. He also recommends some flax seed too. You can look him up, Dr. Furman, for all the details, but it seems like a good short term way to at least change your taste buds a little so salty fatty processed foods stop tasting so good. You really get to eat a lot; unlimited vegetables, unlimited fruits, and unlimited beans. So you don't go hungry, you just eat what you want of those foods, and limiting grains, and fats. It does seem a little extreme, but then again so does eating a whole pizza, or a whole bag of chips. I'll see how this lifestyle change affects my energy levels for exercise, but I have a feeling it'll be good.
