Join me as I blog my way through Dr. Furhman’s Eat to Live plan (again)! My goal is to reach my ideal weight by doing the aggressive 6 week Eat to Live plan by Dr. Fuhrman until I reach that magic number! I will be posting what I eat each and every day (or as close as I can get) with pics! If you are currently on the plan we would love to hear from you–please comment and post pics below!
WHAT I ATE ON DAY 4:
Breakfast: 1/2 cup Steel-cut oatmeal with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 apple, sprinkling of pomegranate seeds and raw flaxseeds
Lunch: (see salad above) with mixed baby greens, apple spices, red bell peppers, carrots, red onions, 1/4th Hass avocado and a sprinkle of dry roasted, unsalted pistachios. Dressed with balsamic vinegar. Cherry pie LARA BAR.
Dinner: Local Indian take-out restaurant. Okay, I’ll be the first to admit that this meal does not meet the guidelines for the Eat to Live 6 week aggressive weight loss plan. The fact that we are in the middle of a move into our very first home, I will most likely be adhering to the less aggressive Maintenance plan where you eat 90% of your calories the way you did on the 6 week plan and 10% from nutrient-vacant foods like meats, dairy, and refined carbs.
My Indian dinner was vegetarian but I did have white rice (at least it was mixed with veggies for extra fiber) and there was likely loads of extra salt that I would not have consumed if I cooked these dishes myself at home. But it is safe to say that my Dal lentils, eggplant and mixed vegetables stuck to the 90/10 rule. No fruit for dessert since I had that white rice for dinner (btw: only one cup).
