Re: wow..imagine all the cals i ate today!

20mg. you were going pretty good there until I saw the dreaded "SOY" word. Search "soy danger" and you'll never drink soy milk or eat soy again. Good luck on the gluten free diet I know how easy it is to make a mistake.

Re: wow..imagine all the cals i ate today!

o racehorse, nobody is perfect...lol. o and jessica to answer ur "orthorexic" question...its an eatign disorder..the most newest. its when ur a TOTAL health nut..u eat all healthy foods, u excercise regularly BUT ur so obsessed with it, one lil "slip" u go insane. literally INSANE! therefore...ur just lacking the fun stuff...look at this..


The Bratman Test for Orthorexia

Do you spend more than 3 hours a day thinking about your diet?

Do you plan your meals several days ahead?

Is the nutritional value of your meal more important than the pleasure of eating it?

Has the quality of your life decreased as the quality of your diet has increased?

Have you become stricter with yourself lately?

Does your self-esteem get a boost from eating healthily?

Have you given up foods you used to enjoy in order to eat the ‘right’ foods

Does your diet make it difficult for you to eat out, distancing you from family and friends?

Do you feel guilty when you stray from your diet?

Do you feel at peace with yourself and in total control when you eat healthily?

Yes to 4 or 5 of the above questions means it is time to relax more about food.

Yes to all of them means a full-blown obsession with eating
healthy food.



so yah. ur a total health nut its serious..ur not near as socialble or outgoing and it sucks

Re: wow..imagine all the cals i ate today!

Yesterdays menu as I remember it.
I had a berry shake for breakfast and followed my recipe
My Favorite Morning Shake

I bag (16 oz.) Black Berries
Any fruit will do
4 tbls fresh ground flax seed
I have switched to the golden variety for taste
25 grams egg white protein
Try whey if you can't tolerate egg
16 oz. homemade almond milk
Its has no added sugar but you might use Almond Breeze from the grocery. Avoid Soy at all costs!!
1-2 tsp. Coconut oil ( optional, but don’t substitute veg. Oil of any kind for the coconut oil.

If the drink is not sweet enough you can add a couple of drops of stevia extract. Make it v. thick and difficult to drink through a straw to stimulate your mouth (and digestive system).
This keeps me going ( 150 lb. male) from early morn to a late lunch with rarely a need for a late morn. snack. This recipe makes two large glasses and can be halved but take care about reducing the protein content.

Ground flaxseed should be used immediately as the very fats that are a big part of its value (omega 3's) oxidize v. rapidly. Depending on how ground flaxseed is stored it can begin to turn rancid in minutes. I use a coffee grinder and make mine just before putting it in my morning shake. While I use 4 tablespoons, that is a bit ambitious for those newcomers to ground flax. Start low and work up and always remember to take plenty of fluid with flax.

For lunch

1/2 chicken breast (roasted and leftover from last nights dinner, rocky range organic)
1 Red bell pepper organic
2 small tomatoes conventional
1 peach conventional

snack
small handful of almonds organic

dinner
about 8oz. new york steak trimmed of all visible fat neiman ranch beef and flame grilled w/ a spiced rub.
Steamed brocholli w/ lime butter
pan seared raddiccio w/ x virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar
sliced tomatoes w/fresh basil conventional
fresh bing cherries organic

You will note zero gluten, grains, dairy or legumes. Yesterday's food was v. simple but I often get more elaborate, especially if we are having guests. Also yesterday was unusual in that there are no greens, usually I have a mixed salad at lunch or dinner and often our choice of veg might include greens of some sort. In addition to my multi vitamin/mineral I take 200 mg. of Co Q10, extra Vit C and purified fish oil.

Re: wow..imagine all the cals i ate today!

Sorry but I do have a thought about the water. I try to drink little or no water with meals. Being older now I have found that diluting stomach acid does not promote good digestion.

Girly girl, I swear that you read my mind sometimes(or that I read yours or something), LOLLLLLLLLLL. I've been wanting to ask him that too!

BTW racehorse, looks pretty healthy, but I'm still not TOTALLY convinced about NO grains, beans or rice. Wheat may be a problem for some but....I dunno, lol

It is not "pretty healthy" it's the real deal... go search paleo diet and find out the facts about grains and beans (uh, rice would be a grain just like corn). You'll end up a paleo girl yet! LOL

Re: wow..imagine all the cals i ate today!

Really, I just read an article today about how whole grains are good for lowering cholesterol, and sustaining insulin levels. I was reading about brown rice pasta by the way. I know wheat isn't tolorable FOR many people, but I think oats, brown rice, and beans are good. I don't know, it's just hard for me to believe you know? Oats sweep cholesterol(I read) like one is mopping up the floor.(some kind of analogy like that, lol) Plus, it contains b vitamins and the sort. I NEVER read anywhere that beans are bad.
I don't like meat too much, like I say, so i''d have a real tough time eating like that. I guess it all depends on how one FEELS on their own diet or regimine or whatever.

I am not sure a garden would improve my diet but it is always great to eat produce that is minutes old. Buckwheat is a special situation and while I have no direct indications that it can be problematic I trust in nature and so prefer to eat pretty strictly a paleo/evolutionary diet. Wine is certainly the least problematic alcoholic drink and for those that can enjoy a glass with dinner from time to time I say ah salud. I would like to know what you felt was problematic with yesterday's menu? BTW I did go the substitution route with other GF foods to recreate gluten based foods but now that I have adopted the paleo diet I find little desire for a sandwich. There is something liberating about abolishing the agricultural grain concept of daily nutrition.
