So I will start by telling you about my journey, At the age of 18 I weighed about 230 pounds in 2008 and dropped the weight with a great amount of dedication and knowledge to get down to 180 pounds by the end of 2009 with intense training. My food routine consisted of Oatmeal, Green Tea, Chicken (wasn’t vegan), Vegetables and Fruits. Later I would find out I am a allergic to Oats and Green Tea which caused my Acne.
However High School was a very stressful time for me and my weight always kept jumping up and down constantly from a lack of full concentration on my well being. I found myself using energy drinks (bad!) as my main source of energy to get through these tough times due to a lack of sleep.
In 2009 I went to film school where my routine of living took a nose dive, the school was a boot camp with very little time to prepare any decent food or get any sleep. I knew better than this but abused my body further with Hot Pockets, Instant T.V Dinners, Fast Food and more Energy Drinks / Pulling all nighters editing film material for class to get the job done and put my body on the back burner.Side topic:
Filmaking is one of the most demanding professions, especially for Cinematographers, Grips, Gaffers because of all the equipment they must carry around. So having strength and a healthy life style is a must for this profession.
Back on topic:
I started to get ulcers and my stomach felt like it had knives inside of it. So enough was enough eventually in 2010 when in April I finished school and decided to detox my body the best I could. I got a colonic to drain my system out and started eating normal again like when I was back in 2008. Work has been tough and time for my body has been thin.
So now my filmaking has gotten intense once again, It’s 2011, I am at around 195 pounds and 21 years old. I need to start taking care of my body and make a full commitment to cleanse my body for a more efficient life style which will increase my work load and make me feel good.
I am dedicated to keeping my routine for the rest of my life and will surround myself with individuals who share this interest.
I need help composing a food schedule, 6 small meals a day to boost my metabolism. My routine must fit around food I am not allergic to according to my ALCAT blood test. In terms of my reaction, mainly fatigue and acne. Yes there are quite a bit of foods I need to avoid…Foods I am allergic to broken down into categories:Nuts/Beans:
Almonds, Cashew, Brazil Nuts, Peanuts, Soybeans (Soy, Tofu), Coffee BeansGrains:
Anise Seed, Cottonseed, Spelt, Oats (Oatmeal), Barley, CarawayVegetables/Greens:
Iceberg Lettuce, Kale, Bay Leaf, Basil, Barley, Asparagus, Celery, Turnip, Mushrooms, Olives (Black Olives, Olive Oil), Parsnip, CucumberFruit:
Banana, Coconut, Kiwi, Pear, Pomegranates, CherrySeafood:
Scallop, Lobster, Trout, Catfish, Codfish, Crayfish, Anchovy, Clam, HalibutMeats:
Beef, Venison, Veal, DuckDairy:
Egg Yolks, Egg Whites (No Whey or Cassein), Cow’s Milk, Cheese, Cottage Cheese, Goat’s Milk, Sheep’s MilkSugar:
Fructose, Honey, Cane SugarSpices/Misc:
Black or Green Tea, Saffron, Clove, Nutmeg (Severe Allergy)
So after looking at that, is it even possible to maintain a healthy vegan lifestyle? Having Soy eliminated is a huge blow, no tofu, clif bars, or any bars for that matter. Also not having any meat or protein substitute might hurt me. Possibly I might consider being a vegetarian with just Salmon and Chicken.
