2014 Year to organize and regroup

Friday, January 03, 2014

It took a lot of effort to learn and formulate what my diet will look like. It was a surprise for sure what I ended up with. Going through my orders with Amazon, I counted a little over 100 books on health and diets in the past 6 months.

Enough of that and I should be focusing on catching up with what I got and organizing.

So that will be my goals for the year. I've settled with what I'm going to eat and the exercise program.

The 3 O's: Organize, Organize, Organize will be the key.

    Marilyn, Thanks for asking. I'm still making adjustment and researching. This thing takes a lot more work than I thought. But basically, I got the idea of using Chia to suppress the appetite by eating it before each meal. I added walnuts and almonds to it. Then Brazil nuts and peanuts came along. But then I found out that the nuts have high Omega 6, so I had to reduce it to 1 oz per day. I also got a wind of the 3-apple a day diet by Tammi Flynn. That is to eat 1 apple with each meal, so I adopted that. Then I got the 1/2 lb animal proteins number from the Jaminets (The Perfect Health Diet). That's the first time I got a plain written number instead of gram protein which I never learned to convert. The Jaminets put it in a way that I could understand. No more than 1/2 lb animal protein per day. I also just got started making sauerkraut. Coupled that with home grown mung bean sprouts. That took care of 1/2 of the veggies. Add some Romaine and I plan on growing broccoli and kale sprouts. I also have a goal of eating one young coconut per day. My Chia consumption is 40 grams dry weight per day. Soaked overnight to reduce anti-nutrient enzymes.

    From the Live to Eat camp, Dr. Fuhrman said to eat garlic, onions and medicinal mushrooms like Shiitake everyday. So those are on my list and I tried to have some everyday. It's a lot of work, but the homemade sauerkraut should help as I had some garlic in there. My next batch of kraut will have garlic and onions so I should meet that goal everyday. I hope to do a blog once I got everything figured out and settled down. But this pretty much described the bulk of what I do. Of course, I follow The Leptin Diet plan by eating only 3 meal per day with no snack. I still enjoy the discipline and I think it's better for you. Hope this helps.
