Weight: 193.4 pounds
The head cold is now completely gone. I still feel very good and hopefully internally I am continuing to experience improvements. Only another blood test will confirm that. Weight seems to be trending down again after a minor plateau. The changes are not occurring as rapidly as they did when I first got on the plant based, whole food diet last October. Still with the changes to date, I don’t see myself desiring to go back to my SAD way of eating. As some have said, I do feel I have more energy to make it through the day.
Walking 20 minutes
Bowl of oatmeal with honey
Decaffeinated green tea
Two bowls lentil stew
Bowl of potatoes (potato enchilada filling)
I have been pretty good through out he day to cut out non-essential snacks, at work there are many foods and trips to restaurants that I no longer need. That is not to say I don’t miss eating my Singapore Noodles or Vietnamese banh mi. Still with as much food as we have at home, in the refrigerator I am able to bring leftovers in to eat. I could probably do by eating just a bit less during dinner or eat a bit bigger snack before dinner. I started cooking last night when I got home from work and running errands to the market around 4pm. I still didn’t eat until just after 5:30pm. I have noticed I am starting to freeze more meals, for example the lentil stew I pulled out the freezer after about 2 weeks. I just placed spaghetti sauce in the freezer and will probably make a few plates this upcoming week.
