I've even taken out most starchy carbs even if they are "whole" like potatoes, oats, or rice.


I never liked the starchy stuff most people seem to crave: Potatoes, squash, rice, water chestnuts, etc. just seem to put chalk in my mouth and lead in my ass. Oats, I'm okay with and thrive on, especially soaked whole oat groats. The less processing, the more my body recognizes stuff! :wink:

Anybody try this one? It's quite simple, just eating 'whole foods.' What does that mean? Only a food that has not been separated from any of it's components due to mechanical or chemical processes, but it doesn't matter if a food has been cooked or not. This means you would only eat:

Nuts
Seeds
Legumes
Fruits
Vegetables
Whole grains
Spices

There is still some confusion if tofu/tempeh should be included, and I think it could go either way.

Anyway, I think this would be an ideal diet for health and athletic performance, but I suppose the real challenge is following it, just like the challenge posed by any other diet. Has anyone here tried or done this?


That's pretty much how I eat every day but instead of tofu I eat tons of humus (LOVE!!!)
The only thing that list is missing is fresh herbs (basil, rosemary, etc.)
----spices to me are pepper, salt, cardamom

I think the biggest challenge to this would simply be mental. IF you can learn to eat food for fuel instead of for pleasure, then the problem is solved. But that's the real challenging part isn't it? :D


When we go out & friends give me a hard time about not eating I explaine I'm not "Recreational Eater".
For example: when I go to a soccer game ~ I watch the game or I go the County Fair ~ I ride the rides.
I don't just sit there & eat mindlessly.

I hope that makes sense.
