Every time somebody finds out about what kind of diet I am on, I prepare myself for the onslaught of questions that are sure to follow.
“Where do get your protein?” “What DO you eat?” “What about dessert?” and so on.
I admit, I get nervous trying to answer some of these questions. The diet makes me feel so good, that I don’t bother to break it down scientifically and figure out how many grams of protein are in the spinach! Starting today, I am going to memorize some facts for the most popular questions. Protein is the most popular subject. I do understand that it is essential, but I am a firm believer in the fact that the average American consumes WAY too much! Before I go off on a rant about the whole industry, let me get back to topic at hand. I just need a quick, to the point answer about protein, without being offensive to meat-eaters, or people who haven’t questioned their own reasoning. I am going to have to investigate further, because in the words of Albert Einstein, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”.
A typical day:
Smoothie and fruit for breakfast
Salad for lunch
Vegetable based dish for dinner
Several snacks of fruit in between
Maybe a nut based dessert
