The Plan - Receitas Day 7-9

Friday, June 14, 2013

Ok, here things are getting muddled. It is easy to see what is happening when I am a good girl. What if I am not?

On day 7 I gained 100 gram or .22 pounds and the same on 8. Why? Day seven I stayed course, but for the life of me I wonít eat all that garlic sauce. No, I love garlic but the moment it is too muchÖ well Iíve had it. I think a lot will depend on how strong that garlic is and the ones I have here at home is very potent.

I did not make the potato chips as it is way too much to turn on the oven for 3 chips. And to be truthful, I am not a big fan of chips. Once or twice a year, then it is nice to have a portion but more than that, I simply just donít care that much about it.

Day 8 & 9
I had my flax seed breakfast every morning but I am beginning to find that the full cup of flax seed is too much for me. With the fruit I can actually go with half a cup and still be very satisfied.

I am now weighing my water intake plus milk and sugarless teas to make sure I am not going over my water allocation.

Last night I was hungry so I had more vegs, all has been tested before.
Today lunch time we had bits and bobs out of the freezer and I had a bit of pork, chicken, beef and chickpeas with satay sauce.

For a snack I had 4 Brazil nuts and it is not on the menu so tomorrow should I test reactive, I wonít know which of the new foods, the nuts, the beef or the peanuts in the satay sauce caused it.

I am taking the day off tomorrow as we are getting guests over. I will still eat my normal breakfast and soup for lunch.

All I know that before The Plan, if I donít stay on course, I am gaining rapidly.

There is merit in this way of testing oneís food. I will do course corrections from Monday on. I will not stop. Watch this space!

    Really interesting. I think I will see if my library has this book...I may not follow it, but I love to read about nutrition and all these new (and old) ideas about it.

    A whole cup of flaxseed does sound like a lot at one time. It sounds like you are getting a handle on what you can and can't eat. I'm finding it interesting to read your blogs and see how you are incorporating The Plan into your lifestyle. Wishing you all the best.

    Very interesting! I have a book that is several years old called The False Fat Diet which is a elimination diet similar to this. It makes me appreciate not having food allergies because all that happens to us if we eat something off plan is we temporarily gain a lb or 2 but others get super sick or almost die!
Keep up the great work! I did read some where that you can do the initial 3 day cleanse monthly (but not recommended more because it is taxing on the liver or something like that).

    I think it sounds like you are still doing great. The gain is just so small, I wouldn't be concerned.
Have a terrific week end.

  Well, you have several possibilities for why you gained: eating late, eating multiple animal proteins in one day, not getting the right amount of water, peanuts can be highly reactive, etc etc.

Also, any sauces are optional, plus you only use a couple spoonfuls per serving.

    You sound like a woman on a mission! Is Mr. Roelf eating on the Plan as well?

I hope you enjoy your guests!
