Recap of Day One

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Day One on the Eat to Live plan. I lived!


I ate when I was hungry.
Stopped eating before I was full.
Wrote everything down.

Breakfast: Coffee and a banana

Snack: watermelon, strawberries, spoon of peanut butter, and a handful of raspberries and blackberries.

Lunch: A bag of frozen veggies, and a 100 calorie pack of dry roasted edamame.

Supper: Salad: romaine, cherry tomatoes, chick peas, dried cranberries, sliced almonds, watered down dressing.

Snack: handful of walnuts pieces

Tired today, but it could be because of the events of the day before. Not sure if I'm eating enough or drinking enough.
Really did not want to eat salad. Wanted PB&J.
Or cookies. Or just about any starchy food.

Tummy feels a little strange. Not nauseous, or gassy, but not happy. I hope this is the detox, and that it ends before I have to go back to work. Makes me want saltines...

Maybe I just miss feeling full.


Wrote the above last night. Got up this morning, feeling fine.
And I dropped 1.8 pounds!!!
Ok, water weight, but I still liked it.

    Maybe your stomach has to get used to it. Talk to Marian as she dropped 50 lbs. doing it.

    GOOD FOR YOU for staring this! May you have good results and learn lots about yourself and food.
I think that if you're doing ETL you do not really 'have to' write it all down or be very mindful about how much you eat. You can have LOTS of food - if they're nutrient rich, in other words: vegetables and fruist.
If you long for starchy food you could have one cup of rice or potatoes with your supper.
I would not worry about the protein. I'd cut out the coffee though. Or try chicory coffee instead.

    I'm not sure, either.
Dr Fuhrman says yes, with the beans.
I'll do the math... and see how I feel...
