still at 134lb


I've been eating a lot in the past few weeks (not so much, I maintained my weight).
Now it's finally ressembling like spring outside.
This week I'm starting to cut on food. For a 16-weeks period.
So beginning of April - end of July.
I don't even consider this as a diet to lose weight, but more focused on raw food, fruits, to try and see if I can get in the best shape of my life, and I'm gonna lose weight since I won't buy nuts or eat too much calorie dense food.

Here's some food I'm gonna eat during summer:

greens (a lot): spinach, kale, broccoli... salads...

fruits (a lot) : pineapple, grapefruit, bananas, pears... all fruits

sprouts : quinoa, buckwheat, millet...
mung beans, alfalfa, sunflower seeds...

proteins: soy, hemp, rice protein shakes.
Also some fortified beverages : soy, almonds, rice, hemp if I can find some. Adding some fruits in it.
Tofu, legumes (lentills, white/black beans, etc) with grains and greens.

Green smoothies, green tea, water...

cooked, cheats, etc : in the morning, some oatmeal, with raisins. I'll try to moderate this, and maybe some pancakes with fruits and maple syrup. Also I'm allowing me for this summer : 1 choco soy icecream, because that's one thing I must do at least once this summer, during a heat wave, eating a whole vegan icecream package while watching a movie on a hot night.
Those and some big meals with grains and legumes will be the stuff that I'll eat just one day per week to give a boost to my system.

In the last weeks I'm gonna cut some carbs and fat:
less fruits, grains, legumes, avocados, olives, olive oil, flax seeds, carrots, yams.
Keeping greens and proteins.

things I forgot:

-salads made of : artichoke and palm hearts, carrot salad, sprouts
-buckwheat pancakes with blueberries

Found a good substitute to vinegar: horseraddish. It can also substitute Dijon mustard, sauerkraut.
Grate it and put it on about everything, like in veggiedogs. I like it in beets salad: only grate beets with grate horseraddish, that's it.

Last time I weight myself I was at 60kg, so I lost 5kg in one or two months.
Here's some strange pics taken today, look at my left arm, so weird, appears difformed, no? Lol!
I guess it's because of the camera angle. I feel like James Woods in Videodrome with a mutant arm!

May 19th- May 25th

This week I had:

Raw: green salads, like lettuce with avocado. Tomatoes, sprouts (alfalfa, clover, etc),. Carrot salad with anice or raisins. Beet salad with horseraddish.
Fruits: bananas, apples, pears, berries, nectarines, grapes.
Tried some recipes: butternut squash soup, but changed the coconut milk for soy milk. I also adapted to raw a recipe like this one. Both with butternut squash, both were spicy and tasty.


Cooked: buckwheat, millet, tofu with Bragg's Liquid Aminos, turnip, quinoa, onions, vegetable broth soup, oatmeal with dried cherries or raisins, almond vanilla flavoured milk, nature's path morning cereals, bbq peanuts.

I still have some protein powder (hemp and soy) but not really using any. I just do fruit smoothies or green smoothies with no protein supplement, or just some soy milk powder or beverage instead of the soy protein isolate -- too much proteins, and because it's too much processed, amino acids are altered and less efficient. Better take smaller quantity but better quality -- read natural.

The weather is still pretty cold and rainy most of the days, so I still eat some warm veg. broth or tofu. But I expect to see the Raw food list getting longer and longer as summer goes by, and the Cooked foods disappear completly, soon. If I was living in California I guess it would be easier.

I ate some good stuff except for a 250gr bag of barbecue peanuts in one evening, and a 350gr of cereals in one morning!

Guillame,

Nice clean healthy diet. An absolute pleasure to run through your journal. I will say though, staring at that ripe red watermelon and reading all the fruits you consume, it is definitely making me crave a solid piece of fruit but lucky for me I have willpower. But man those pics make it look so good!
