Plant Based Diet – Week 1

img_5933

One week down with my effort in a plant based diet!

Results are pretty good to me:

  • released 5 pounds
  • blood pressure down 3 points
  • feeling lighter and healthy

I strayed from the diet only one time the first week.  I had a hamburger (no bun) on Saturday night.  It was from a local grower so I felt good about the beef, but it was not plant based of course.

So one variance in a week is a success in my book.  Especially for the first week.

The first part of the week I felt good most of the time, but found a need for something more in the afternoons.  I ate all I wanted, but my body was saying that I was missing something.  I believe it was sugar.   It is a weird feeling to describe – not so much a hunger pain which I am familiar with, but a feeling of there is something more my body says it is missing.  Gotta fight that sugar monster!

I ate all the fruit, nuts and veggies I wanted, but no starches.  I am going to adjust that this week by adding some starches to my diet – but no sugar.  I also may eat meat a couple of times because of the planned events this week.  We will see….
