Guess what? Tony has lost 21.8 lbs! His pants don’t fit. How sad. Me? No change, still at 8.8 lbs. I don’t feel bad about, though. Tony is very strict and eats 95% according to plan. This is because his sensitive tummy loves the new foods and when he strays he suffers with pain. I don’t have that same intense incentive. So I probably eat 75% according to plan. I haven’t notice any significant changes, except my clothes fit a little better.
Here are a few of the meals we ate this week. Keep your eye open for meal = veg + veg + protein formula that I think is the key to this plan’s success.
Here’s a typical lunch. It’s leftover roast vegetables (carrots, zucchini, squash, and sometimes broccoli, kale, beets), salad made of spinach and other greens with a little bit of grated cheese, and a good helping of hummus on a rye cracker.
See how beautiful it is? Wouldn’t you love to eat this? I did.
This lunch is soup and salad. This is the book’s “Spicy Vegetable Soup” which has any vegetables you like plus chickpeas and a fully loaded salad with any combination of greens, avocado, goat cheese and pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
This is a very filling and satisfying meal.
For dinner we have beet and carrot slaw with pumpkin seeds, sauteed zucchini and onions and a 4 oz (6 oz for Tony) chicken breast with garlic sauce. Don’t be afraid to add more of either or both vegetables.
