Transitioning while pregnant, first trimester

I am finally out of the first trimester of pregnancy and although I fell off the wagon significantly for a few weeks there, I still managed to make most of my meals all fruit. I'm trying to stay positive and focused here... Anyhow, last weekend I went home for the weekend and our neighbors have an orange, grapefruit, and 2 different varieties lemon trees. They never pick the fruit and it usually falls to the ground and rots. Every winter I usually get a few pieces, but this weekend when I…

Too Much Water and Salt Cravings?

I think sometimes I have a tendency to be extreme with certain pieces of good advice, like "making sure to drink enough water". I have been drinking a minimum of 64 ounces a day for the past couple of months and recently  attempted to double that, thinking more is better. What I think I've realized is that there is a such thing as "too much of a good thing", and that drinking all this water is not helping my salt cravings at all. I read about water toxicity and learned that drinking water in… Continue

Pregnancy related cravings!

I couldn't understand why for the past week I was craving rice and pasta like crazy! I was getting a minimum of 2600 calories a day, and still desperately wanting anything starchy with tomatoe sauce.  I found out I am 4 weeks pregnant yesterday and am beginning to suspect that is why the cravings were so strong, maybe I need to take in a lot more calories to prepare my body for pregnancy?  The cool thing is that I will get to see how eating a fruit based diet makes me feel compared to how I…

I finally read THE book!

I finally checked my mailbox yesterday and there was The 80/10/10 Diet waiting for me. I was so excited I immediately started reading it and have completed all the chapters and am working through the appendixes. Whenever I read a book for informational purposes I like to read it from cover to cover first and then go back and re-read the most compelling parts multiple times.

 

Anyway, before getting this book I though I could…

20 bad?

Yesterday was a good day for me. I was active and I didn't want any cooked foods. However I didn't force myself to eat 3000+ calories either... Part of the reason is because I ran out of food, I ate my last 3 mangos yesterday and haven't bought anymore because I am going to lay off the mangos this week and see if the swollen glands persist. So now I only have melons and bananas to eat, and currently none of my room temp bananas are ripe, so I have to eat smoothies with my stash of frozen… Continue

Another Cooked Meal:/

So the night before last, we went out to dinner.  My meat-loving husband surprised me by wanting to go to this vegan restaurant called "The Loving Hut", that I introduced him to a while back. Baby steps, right?!  Almost every dish they serve is cooked and has some type of soy protein in it.  Anyway, I wanted to go out and to ensure that I wouldn't be tempted I drank a 5 banana smoothie right before we left on top of the 3000 calories I had already consumed that day. Well, I surprised myself by… Continue

Secretly transitioning spouse to LFRV, slowly but surely

Its been about 4 months since I resolved to not consume animal products, and about 3 weeks since working towards LFRV. I ordered the 80 10 10 book yesterday. I am writing this blog post for myself and anyone who has decided to eat LFRV and has a spouse that isn't planning to do the same.

 

So yesterday I had some cooked food... I was feeling bad about it but then I was glad I did it because it wasn't satisfying at all and confirmed for me that fruit is better on all sides, the…

Counting Calories

I am pretty satisfied with myself right now for having made some confirmations that are serving me well. The first one being that I have to stop putting up parameters and being obsessive about them. I feel part of this behavior is stemming from boredom, which I am ashamed to admit because I always say, "only boring people get bored", and what does that say about me! Its actually kind of funny when I think about it that I am obsessing about eating enough calories but also a little…

Weight Gain

So I just decided to journal what my thoughts are as I am going throught this process of adjusting my diet and lifestyle, simply to keep track of changes and realizations that take place along the way. So far I am a little more than 2 weeks in and one thing I decided over the past 2 days was that regardless of weight gain, I am going to continue eating without restricting my calories. I have been pretty easily getting at least 2000 calories by midday, and by the end of the day I've had…
