Pancakes and pizza as part of the plan...this book is definitely going on my wish list!

I know Brendan Brazier (he's the author, right?) is mostly into endurance sports. Clearly, this diet is aimed at good health and getting lean (well, clearly in my assumption!). Do you happen to know (or have any thoughts on) how well this diet would work for folks who want to add muscle mass--i.e. who do more of a bodybuilding/figure type of thing?

What attracted you to this diet?

You said on one of your posts you were "very bad today and ate a bunch of frosting." I read on Lindsay76's log that one day her food was "hilarious." I think I will start using that label from now on instead of "bad." I can laugh at myself instead of berating myself. But maybe "very bad" doesn't have the same loaded quality for you that it does for me. In any event, I hope you enjoyed every bit of the frosting and are feeling great!

I couldn't say anything about building mass as that has never been my concern. I've been searching most of my life for a healthy food plan that I could stick to. In between trying out different diets - I gravitate to fast junk food. Now my freezer is filled with fruit (from my back yard - woo hoo!) and my kitchen is stocked with the staples from Thrive (and no junk!). I had frosting leftover from making cupcakes for my husbands company picnic (i'm obsessed with not throwing food away - but would have been better off putting the frosting in the garbage instead of on my hips :wink: )

Being human, I can be bad once in awhile, but if I used the word 'hilarious' I'd be cheating all the time and not owning it. I need firm boundaries - black & white - otherwise I'd be slipping into gray all the time. I've had a lifetime of bad eating habits and now that I want to change - I need to be clear with myself.

Congrats! I really enjoy reading this thread. I haven't been 100% Thrive Diet, but reading the book has resulted in a lot of eating changes for me, and the thing that made me finally break down and get the book was you discussing it.

Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Christopher
