i'm using stan's diet version 6 as an outline for eating and I feel great. I started this just this past saturday. I'm going out for sushi friday night with a group of friends. Just wondering if anyone knows what is "safe" that will not cause a possible crash later in the evening. I will definitely not eat any rice or seaweed salad. I'm thinking it is okay to eat salmon, tuna, mackeral, etc. I thought maybe a bowl of miso soup would be okay also.
sushi has white rice so I don't think that would be very good on stan's diet. There are types of sushi without rice, maybe you could try that kind. Miso soup probably wouldn't be too bad, it's made of soybean paste. My husband loves sushi but I usually have salad and a grilled chicken, shrimp or steak (at the teppan grill).
Thanks for the suggestion dj! I will eat sashimi (no rice involved).
I actually had kind of a down day yesterday. Went home from work, watered a few flowers and cooked and found myself exhausted. The past few days I had been so full of energy. Yesterday I know I slept through the 6:00 news, I woke up and fixed dinner for my son and was back in bed by 8:15. I slept all night though and woke up very rested.
I tried having blueberries after a couple of meals yesterday and I had beef for the first time. I don't know if it was the berries or the beef. I bet it was the few berries!! I love fruit, but I think I am going to have to stay away completely for a while.
Anybody else not able to eat fruit at all?
I totally relate to your energy highs and lows. Sometimes I have so much energy and other times I just could sleep all the time. I have to force myself to stay awake until 8 pm sometimes other nights I can stay awake much longer and i'm not tired at all.
Also, some night I sleep really well and other nights I am very restless and wake up every few hours. Sometimes I have very vivid dreams too.
I have to be careful of fruits. I have more problems if I eat fruit earlier in the day (like for breakfast). Later in the day it doesn't bother me as much. I do okay with berries....Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc.
If you ate those berries on an empty stomach without protein and fat, that was the problem. I found at first that I couldn't eat any fruit, but it was a mistake to stay away from it totally. Though it may sound pathetic, seriously eat like one or two blueberries with every meal when you eat them to see what it does. If you can hold that with no problem, add another. You can find your fruit level then and gradually add as you go on. Oh yeah, that's what I would eat and i'm glad you mentioned it! I used to eat sushi a lot but without rice I never thought about it again but I forgot about the sashimi! Awesome. Be careful of the wasabi and the soy sauce though, I believe those suck. If you don't mind eating just raw fish, give it a go, I think I might...
Thanks for the comments!
My berries are always at the end of a meal (just like diet version 6 suggests). I found that I can't handle the strawberries. I am okay with blueberries, but only in the morning - I guess eating them with the avocado makes a difference? I am also fine with the raspberries in the morning. I will definitely drop back to just one blueberry with the rest of my meals during the day and see how that goes.
Sushi night!! I had miso soup and sashimi salad. It was tuna, salmon, and mackeral served on a bed of lettuce with ponku (which ran to the bottom of the bowl and I did not eat. I researched it first and found out that it contains no sugar) I did not eat wasabi or soy. I had not adverse reaction. The sashimi is great and I always get a feeling euphoria after eating a healthy serving of sashimi.
I know to avoid shellfish - I figure it is because scallops will carmalize when pan searing which tells me they have sugar in them. Shrimp taste sweet - so that is sign not to eat it. How about oysters? What is it about oysters that they should not be eaten?
Okay, great! Just making sure you don't eat the berries alone, some people do that when they feel low and this can be disastrous. I actually had a problem with strawberries at first, and it's likely because they are one of the top twelve fruits/vegetables to have the maximum amount of pesticides thrown all over them. I would try 2-3 blueberries at first, one may be too drastic, but you can try it if you like. Actually, it has nothing to do with sugar content. I avoid shellfish because the maker's diet recommends they be avoided entirely because they are "bottom feeders" and thus their protein/nutrient content is of lesser and potential toxic quality. That's why, technically you can eat them, I just try to eliminate as many toxins as possible. If you want, go ahead and try some! I think I may try some sashimi this week.
The sashimi worked great for me and allowed me an opportunity to eat out with friends.
4 frozen (no fresh here right now) blueberries are working just fine! Yea. Raspberries seemed to be fine as well. I just have eat very few.
I just need a bit more time to see what does and does not work.
The support here is fabulous!
Thanks so much.
