Blog #1 This Year’s Eating Plan
Monday, January 07, 2013
I have fallen off the diet wagon yet one more time. Now, I have gained a few more pounds and up to 272 at this time.
Luckily, I saw the movie Forks Over Knives and got inspired again. As a physician, I was very impressed with the research and data I saw.
At first, I thought I would just try a few recipes. I had been interested in vegan and raw vegan before and really a lot of the recipes I made then. The concept of low fat vegan made a lot of sense to me.
Then I thought – I wonder how much healthier and lighter I would be after 30 days of eating low fat vegan? An entire year of eating low fat vegan?
Then, dreamer and overachiever that I am – I wondered what would happen if I ate mostly unprocessed, low fat vegan for a year?
I had successfully eaten only vegan during lent one year thought I was eating quite a lot of processed vegan food. I only lost a few pounds but I was willing to give this a go. Commitment and consistency seemed a problem as well – a year of blogging might help fix that.
So the (new) plan:
Dates: Jan 1st 2013 - Jan 31st 2013 (12 months)
Using only these cookbooks for the first 10 lbs (so I don't get overwhelmed with information):
Forks over Knives – Purple book
Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn
I chose these because of the association to the movie. More specifics and progress as I hope you follow through this coming year.
