i go up and down on diet.
usually on days that i drink too much, i eat crappy, and i can feel it the next day.
when i don't drink much, i eat pretty well. there's room for improvement, but i'm never going to be one of those people that eats steamed kale and wheat grass juice for breakfast.
i'm more the salty, greasy, scrambled tofu, with fake sausage patties, and non-wholewheat english muffins dripping soy margarine types.
if i can get two more servings of veg a day, that'll be pretty good. that and cutting out most of the drinking too much, which would have the effect of raising the average quality of my diet appreciably.
i have not read the thrive diet. i haven't even read the thread on it, though i'll go do so shortly.
thanks for the tips and pointed questions.
Believe me, I don't eat steamed kale and wheat grass juice for breakfast. :p I do eat both, but that's usually with dinner. And NEVER on their own.
I like the occasional soy dog myself.... mostly I just focus on adding new and healthy things into my diet and eventually some of the less healthy stuff gets pushed out.
I think that's a great goal- two more servings of veg a day. I got started on the whole being healthier thing back when I was posting daily in a "5-10 a day challenge" thread on veggieboards.
