Australopithicus Africanses was the first primate to climb down from the trees, some 25 million years ago. His diet was simple: leaves and fruit. If s/he found a fruit tree, s/he might spend the day there, or at least eat until the fruit was gone. If he found a nice-tasting bush or tree, s/he might have eaten his/her fill.
What I plan to do is simply walk in to the Produce Department and buy a bunch of spinach, or chard, or Romaine, and eat it until it is gone; then go back for something different.
I don't like to cook anyway! This may be the answer to my dreams!
Great idea Mack, if you have time to shop this way.
Just bear in mind what they say about going into a foodstore hungry...
I always have a small container of dates with me, to prevent veering off track :)
Hi Kate, Today is Day One. I weigh 200 lbs. I eat lots and lots at night, before bed. I've been eating the wrong things. I have diverticulitis, acid reflux, arthritis, obstructive sleep apnea, and probably heart disease. I'm 70 y/o. I need something drastic, right?
I live half a block from a grocery store and two blocks from an Indian market. I ate everything in my refrigerator last night! Maybe it's better that I have to walk 1/2 a block to get a snack, rather than just to the 'fridge. On the walk I can have time to think about whether I want ice cream or greens and fruit. (Actually, I can even binge on fruit).
My solution is to eat only greens and fruit, until I weigh 150 lbs. and reverse all my obesity-related, chronic, degenerative diseases. I have time to shop. I'm retired on social security. That's the problem. I've got lots of time and very little money, so eating is a good pastime, right?
Are you teasing me? Are you making fun of me? Do you think this is a good idea?
Actually, I've tried dates and I eat them like candy! Don't they have lots of Calories? Do they have vitamins, minerals and Omega-3's? How long have you been eating dates?
