Hey everyone! Sooooooooo I’m just going to get right to it and I’m not going to sugar coat it… this diet kind of sucks. Well, it may actually deliver the health benefits but getting there is brutal. I’m not going to lie to you, this may be over before it begins. Well, not true. I’m debating making this “The Summer of Low Fat (Mostly) Raw.” I have to think about it tonight but I’ll share what I’ve consumed so far today…
Breakfast was a large container of cantaloupe. So far so good.
For lunch I made a huge Banana Date Shake with 4 Bananas, Dates and a little coconut water. This thing is close to 700 calories. It is also sickeningly sweet. When eating mostly sweet meals for a day…. the last thing I need is for one to be obscenely sweet.
Pre dinner snack was a couple of large Pink Lady Apples…
Everything all packed and ready to go. Two BPA free bottles of filtered water to sip on as well.
So that’s where I am now… the sweet meals have made me nauseous and I have no room for the giant salad I’m going to make. I’m only two days in and I just don’t like it. After actually doing it I just don’t think it’s realistic for me to maintain… I feel like I spend all day at work eating, the sweet is too much and making me feel gross… I think I need to tweak my raw summer plans and include more veggies throughout the day and a probably a few clean, cooked foods. I’ll have to figure it out. You know I would normally try to stick it out a little longer if I feel like I’ll be miserable and I’d be better off tweaking it a bit to make it more manageable. I think I’d see more success doing that than trying to stick something out that I just don’t see working or being maintainable. Oh and it will be impossible for me to store a week’s worth of groceries in my house so I’d be running to the grocery store every ten minutes… also not ideal!
Oy, I guess we’ll see. Sorry to give up before it began but I just have this feeling that this isn’t the path for me. I’ll be back with a better plan, one that I will be able to keep up
I hope you all have a great night! I have to figure out how I’m going to get a huge salad in my belly, ha.
