Leptin Reset for a Vegetarian -- Fresh start

Sunday, February 26, 2012

So after the comments and suggestions I got from my last post, I downloaded Dr. Rosedale's book and read it. It looks very doable I started with a breakfast of veggie patties and veggie bacon strips, avocado and coconut oil -- about 30 gms of protein but I didn't have the full feeling of satiation I have with Dr.K's breakfast. So I ate 1.5 eggs with onions, cooked in butter.

I have gained a whopping 2 lbs in the last 5 days. My measurements seem same, I look very puffy and my rings hurt. Water gain? But I have given up snacking -- no snacking in 5 days!!!

I did not eat on protocol yesterday with DS's birthday -- I had cake and Indian food for dinner with naan bread and curry.

Today will serve as my starting point and for the next 3 weeks, I am pledging to be perfect on protocol.

I have to go shopping for Tofu and Black soybeans -- without too much dairy my protein options start to shrink -- Whey shakes don't hold me . So ..on my modified plan, I will have low carb tortillas that have about 9 gms of protein, moderate amounts of shredded cheese, bacon (yes I know - not vegetarian- I am married to a carnivore and developed a taste for bacon), cottage cheese, morning star sausage patties, chicken (I am willing to try), nuts and mung beans.

Started this morning off with a whopping 800 calories and 40 gms of protein.

I am loving it and pray that this thing works!

    Dr. Rosedale says he has always been a fan of coconut oil, but when his first book came out, the editor insisted on leaving that part out because it was considered controversial. I am sure it will be in the next books he is currently working on. Dr. Rosedale has worked alot with people in India, where there are so many more vegetarians.

    If whey doesn't hold you, try adding some coconut oil or milk while on the reset.

    I can gain more than 2 lb on a great Indian meal. I think it is mostly because there is so much salt in the food compared to my own. emoticon
