Jessi's Froggy Bloggy

#1 Postby Jessifly » Mon Apr 23, 2007 3:36 pm

Monday 4/23/07

I have been meaning to start a blog for some time now. Today seems a good day to start this because today is day 1 on the Thrive Diet plan. I chose to start the Thrive diet because my friend and roommate Brooke wanted to try a vegan diet for a trial period with the goal of losing weight. I showed her my new copy of the book I just received and she liked the structure of the meal plan. So to support her goal I am following it with her and I am sure it will benefit me quite a bit as well since my current vegan diet is not very broad or varied.

(I am following Isaacs blog format, his listing method seems to work well)

I've been making the apple cinnamon cereal myself. I had to sweeten it a bit more with some maple syrup... guess I'm not alkaline enough yet! :D I like that it keeps me fuller a little longer than other commercial cereals I've eaten.

Thrive diet update: I stopped the thrive diet a month ago because my system just couldn't handle all the seeds and nuts that the recipes used. I am slowly adding back very small amounts of almonds and flax seeds but I still have been mostly unable to eat them without severe stomach pains. My roommate did very well on the Thrive Diet and she may continue on it while I am taking a more raw route. She found that the meals gave her lots of energy and she always felt satisifed and didn't crave any meat, dairy or junk food while following the plan. She also said her sense of taste and smell skyrocketed as foods she thought were bland before had so much flavor. The past month I have been eating between 85-95% raw (by quantity, not calorie as I am not counting calories consumed) without nuts/seeds and this has worked incredibly well for me. I feel great!

so did your friend lose weight? Is she going to continue to be vegan or return back to her omni diet?

She/we didn't stay consistant with the thrive plan, and when I stopped she did as well, but she occasionally makes a recipe from the book and I think she would like to follow it in full herself but lacks the motivation to do it alone. However I did convince her to join my gym and she has lost 9 pounds! So if we keep that up for her and if she can get back on track with Thrive I think the results will be excellent! As far as staying vegan I just don't know. I'm not sure that she feels strongly one way or the other about being vegan, but her experience with Thrive I think showed her that she can feel great eating vegan and not feel a need to eat animal products, but its not the easiest route to take. And easier unfortunately is winning right now.
