Food I took to work today. Lunch and snacks.
I hear some people at work talk about how they're trying this diet but that they're not on my level. "On my level." Hmm. Sure, I eat a lot more fruits and veggies than anything else, but I'm still eating a lot of fat calories, corn tortilla chips on occasion, and salt. Could I be doing better? Sure! We all can. But should I be stressing about it? Hell no. I hope you're understanding the difference here. I don't stress out about eating some corn chips when the other 85% of my day was fruits and veggies. When the other 90% of my week was fruits and veggies, it's probably not a big deal. If I wanted to lose more weight, be a little less puffy, then I'd stop consuming as much fat and salt. But I'm getting comfortable with my body and I have to be real with the food I eat. I eat 95% fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, and grains. Who wouldn't be happy with that? But you don't have to strive to be "on my level." Just be on your level, and try to eat more fruit and veg every day. That's all you can do, right?
If you guys haven't yet checked out Freelee, you should. Today she posted a video about why you might see no weight loss or even weight gain when you start a high carb, high fruit, raw food lifestyle. This isn't a diet that should be used to lose weight. You may be gaining bone density, fluids, or muscle mass too. Don't ever be discouraged by that number on the scale. We aren't defined by our weight. For this, you should also check out Go Kaleo. She's incredibly inspirational when it comes to weight as well.
Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.
