I've been trying to change my diet in the new year. It's not an eat less crap focused diet but an eat more good stuff focused diet. I'm eating less crap by default because I'm so busy stuffing my face with good stuff and too full for crap. Although I still want the crap. Doughnuts are calling me all the way from the doughnut shop- "We love you. We are languishing here waiting for you..." but that's not the point.
I'm following Dr Gregor's daily dozen so I'm trying to eat all of this daily:
3 servings of beans
1 serving of berries
3 servings of other fruits
1 serving of cruciferous veggies
2 servings greens
2 servings other veggies
1 serving flaxseeds
1 serving nuts
3 servings whole grains
5 servings of beverages (tea/coffee/water for me)
It's so much. My digestive system is begging for mercy but I'm a cold turkey kind of person. It's like all I do all day is eat, eat, eat trying to fit it all in.
You're also supposed to exercise daily, so I'm trying to walk my fat little doggy myself more often. She needs the exercise too but it's cold outside!
Dr Gregor advocates a vegan diet, but I'm adding meat and dairy in little bits back in after my milk supply tanked. It may not be related but I can't take the chance when the milk came back when the meat and dairy came back.
It's been about 10 days and other than predictable tummy issues, I have remarkably increased energy. It's almost too much energy because Baby won't sleep without me and instead of napping with him, I'm sitting with my eyes wide open laying still while he naps!
New Year/New Diet Booya!
