The Day Before

Tomorrow Max and I start our fast, and while it’s for fun and to see if we feel better after it, I think I’ll be trying to take some more objective measurements. Tomorrow I’ll try to get weighed (I was 145.5 lbs last Tuesday) and get some other simple tests (BP, %BF, Cholesterol) and then after the fast and after the month I’ll repeat and post the results along with photos. Today, I’ve been thinking of a sample day of food, and I came up with granola and soy milk in the morning, carrots, humus and tomatoes and pesto for lunch, and either quinoa salad or curried quinoa for dinner.

Wish us luck,

The Plan

After reading ‘The Way of the Peaceful Warrior’ by Dan Millman, Max and I have decided to try a more natural diet, starting with a 7 day water + herbal tea fast. After we’ve cleanse ourselves out, we’ll be eating vegan (maybe we’ll have honey) but no refined sugars or enriched flours. After a month of this (we’ll keep you posted as we go, with how it’s going and good recipes, etc…) if we feel great, and want to stick with it, we will, or we’ll slowly move back to a more conventional diet. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, please feel free to reply and let me know, as I’ve never done anything like this before. If you’d like to keep tabs on how I’m doing, I’ll be updating my Twitter regularly.

Peace and not-chow,
