Raw food trial – day 28

by Bart on November 6, 2009

I woke up a bit hungry today, but having slept about 5 hours a night on average, during the last few nights, I decided to stay in bed for an extra 30 minutes. That was enough for the feeling of hunger to disappear, and as a result, I decided not to eat anything before heading out to the office.

Since it was a busy morning, I did not have time to think about food, and even missed my usual noon lunch time!

But eventually…

Meal #1 @ 12:45pm

I had a chia seed / banana / lucuma / maca porridge, which I prepared before I left for work. Since I promised myself yesterday that I would skip cacao, I did just that. Although that promise was broken later on in the day. But, that’s what happens when one makes silly promises ;-)

This was an incredibly filling meal, and because of all the fiber in chia seeds, the sugar from bananas is slowly released over time, keeping you from getting hungry for a long time.

Meal #2 @ 7:30pm

Because of staying up late the last few nights I am pretty exhausted, so I decided to grab a very quick meal and head to bed shortly after 8:00pm, watch some TV, and if I’ll fall asleep that early, that’d be even better.

The pre-made store bought lasagna was just what I needed and it was as good as it usually is.

My snacks today were:

  • 2 handfuls of goji berries
  • 1 raw brownie – see day 20 of the raw food trial for the picture
  • handful of raw almonds
  • 2 kiwi fruit
  • about 20 green grapes

Oh, and the scale showed 145 pounds this morning. That means I lost 10 pounds in 4 weeks without even trying. In fact I was eating things that someone wanting to lose weight would never attempt – like a quart of chocolate pudding for a meal :-) Yes, some of the weight lost was muscle mass, but the difference in my waist is very noticeable. I’ve also had enough energy throughout the last 4 weeks that I could have worked out every day, had I had the time or desire.

On to day 29…

Hey, great site! Thanks for sharing. I’ve also been experimenting with raw foods, and so far I love it. I confess that I haven’t gone COMPLETELY raw, but I’m up to about 80%. I figure I have to start somewhere… Anyway, keep up the good work!
