Diet Change

I’ve been having some health issues lately. Not the same kind as before with the back but rather with my digestive system. The doctor found ulcers in the small intestine. He thinks it might be Crohn’s Disease, but the diagnosis is inconclusive.

I’m used to dealing with things healthwise but this is different. I’ve decided to change my diet significantly, so the previous meal plans won’t work. I’m going to be using my blender a lot, and I’ve bought a food processor, juicer, and a whole lot of Mason jars.

It feels like I’m going to war, but if good health requires as much, then war it is.

Diet Update 10/26/2019

I wanted to provide an update to my diet plan. Like last time I haven’t followed this as religiously as I should but I’m working on it.

Day 1:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-1 Cajun Turkey Sandwich
-2 Cups Broccoli
-Black Beans
-1 Bowl Multigrain Cheerios
-1 Cashew Sandwich On Whole Wheat Bread
-2 Cups Spinach
-Grilled Chicken

Day 2:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-Roast Beef Sandwich
-2 Cups Broccoli
-Black Beans
-2 Bowls Kellog’s Corn Flakes
-2 Potatoes
-Oatmeal
-3 Brazil Nuts
-1/2 Cup Peanuts
-1/2 Cup Pecans
-2 Cups Kale
-2 Adult Carrots
-Grilled Chicken

Wednesdays And Saturdays:

-Salmon

If I’m still hungry after all this every day I eat additional sandwiches with grilled chicken, deli meat, and nuts. All nuts are unsalted. Also, you’ll notice eggs are not eaten daily anymore.

As I continue to gauge my body over time this diet is going to continue to change. I just wanted to share it’s most recent iteration. Again, I’m not a doctor and talk to one before following some dude’s advice on the internet.

Diet Renewal

The proof is in the pudding. I’ve been cheating on my diet quite a lot, but when I stick to it I feel amazing. This post is to renew my vow to stick to it (with a few modifications I will talk about later).

Cheating btw seems to happen mostly with cookout grilled chicken sandwiches and McDonald’s Artisan Grilled Chicken but I have had Ihop a couple nights ago and Mexican food wasn’t uncommon a few weeks ago. There was even a pizza about a month or so ago so I’ve been cheating way too much.

No more! I figure if I say it on this blog then I will stick to it. I’m also adding a little section in my Bujo that says checks off whether I followed the diet. I haven’t eaten today, so today is now day 1.

I can do this.

Fitness Update 8-8-2019

I didn’t have time to weigh myself this morning and today was a cheat day, so being full of junk food I didn’t feel like weighing myself tonight. Instead I’m going to talk about diet and fitness.

I’ve made a couple modifications to the diet. Firstly I’m no longer eating egg yolks. This weekend I’m going to boil a couple containers and eat the egg whites during the week on day 2 as a substitute for the whole eggs. I’m also going to substitute in black beans and brown rice for the eggs on day 1.

Yet another important fitness change is to keep better track of how much protein I’m getting. I’ve noticed I tend to sleep better on days when I got plenty of meat. Not sure of it’s because of the protein, but it’s worth looking into.

Finally as of tomorrow I’m going to start working out in the morning (for real this time). I haven’t decided whether to go bike riding or visit the gym, but it will be one or the other. Either one is a really good way to start the day.

Overall my goal is to feel better, and I most certainly do at the moment. At least I feel better than before I started this fitness program. Next week I will check my weight for certain.

Even if I don’t want to look at the scale cause I’m full of pizza. 😉

New Diet

I’ve started a new diet to kick back into weight loss mode. The new plan involves using a variety of foods to get the micronutrients and supplement the remaining macronutrients with deli meat sandwiches, peanut butter, nuts, and black beans. The diet goes on a two day schedule.

Day 1:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-2 Cups Broccoli
-2 Eggs With Table Salt
-2 Cups Multigrain Cheerios
-1 Cashew Sandwich On Whole Wheat Bread
-2 Cups Spinach
-*Fish Oil

Day 2:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-2 Cups Broccoli
-2 Eggs With Table Salt
-2 Cups Multigrain Cheerios
-2 Potatoes
-Oatmeal
-Four Brazil Nuts
-1/2 Cup Peanuts
-1/2 Cup Pecans
-2 Cups Kale
-2 Adult Carrots
-*Fish Oil

*Replace Fish Oil With Salmon On Saturdays
While it says things like “2 cups kale” and “3 Servings Almond Milk” that doesn’t mean 2 cups of kale at once. Maybe some kale in the morning and some in the evening. Maybe a cup of cheerios and some brazil nuts for breakfast while another cup for lunch. If I can’t eat enough healthy foods one day maybe supplement with a multivitamin. It’s a common sense sort of thing.

I’ve done enough research to where I feel confident I can get most if not all of the nutrients I need from this. I’m sure there are nutritionists who may agree or disagree, but it’s definitely better than most people’s diets.

Next week I’m looking toward losing at least 2 pounds. That means the goal now is to be 191.8 lbs by next Wednesday morning.

Onward onward! Weight loss here I come!

Update: I’ve changed the number of Brazil nuts to four after feeling sick from eating so many. As a quick reminder I’m just some guy on the internet and not a health professional so ask your doctor before you try a new diet.
