Post On Group Wall
I walked 1.3 miles really fast last night cause the mosquitoes were biting me like mad as soon as I got on the walking loop! I then came home and made a large salad of carrots, yellow and orange bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, some torn kale, purple lettuce- what ever that is etc.
I took a large portion of the fruit salad- honey dew, cantaloupe, water melon, and green melon chilled- for this morning breakfast and also a large salad with some dressing since I got so hungry after eating only fruit yesterday. I was back up to 204 but I think that is an elimination problem because this morning I was around 202. I am sure if I continue walking and eating fruits and salads the weight will continue to drop off. I did take my husband to get some Supper Yummy and I had a tea and two Spring Rolls.... that is why I went walking!!!! Guilty Walking... at least then. He was exhausted after work and needed the boost.
KDianeC back-- Back 2 Me.
I also decided to start my count over. Day 1 of Juicing, Walking, Eating Fruits and Vegetables.
Okay, I lied. I am juicing again today June 1. I am going to continue the first 5 days with juicing twice and eating fruit only and vegetable only for 5 days. At day 6 I will revert to juicing if I do not see any weight loss. This way my husband -not rebooting or juicing- can also eat the fruit and we can share the salad and hopefully not cost as much. I will allow SOME nuts and raw fruits and vegetables and a LOT of WATER. Also I intend to walk at least 1 mile a day-- If I walk 2 to 3 even better.
I guess I will post this in all the groups I have joined or is there a way to post to all groups at one time?

I have been away for a bit. Starting a 30 day on June 1st, tweaking it with psyllium husk to accelerate getting rid of the cholesterol and toxins..
Best wishes for a successful reboot. I started only Thursday. Meet you back here when we've reached our juicing goal!
FInished 5 day reboot today weighing this morning at 199.6. Loss of 5 lbs over holiday 5 day reboot. today I ate more later .
Congrats on getting out of the two hundreds! Keep up he good work!
Thank you nini I need the contact!
I had a good day for what I ate.. see the discussions... but not much juice. it is terrible timing but I am going to keep on. Yes I have a good juicer. I plan to try to go the 5 day and like you veggies and fruits for the rest of my life. I also want to continue walking at least two miles a day. I am sure juicing completely is a good thing and I do think it works . It is also think I need to do it to get control over life.
Glad to see some other regulars here also. Keep up the good juice! I just want to get through one day juicing! it is easier to not eat at all at first then to change to juicing alone. I went through a 5 day fast before with just ovaltine and milk! It seemed to be easy.... I just need to make enough juice. I tried using the blender... too much pulp. i am cooking for my husband and daughters that can attend sunday. Tomorrow heaven help me just one total day of juice then on Sunday I will go for day two.... should I post my cell phone number? €-)
LOL! The Ovaltine fast....ah the things we do! I have heard many people, including the nutritionists on this site, say that a 5 day juice fast is a great way to reset your palate as you embark on diet changes. I have also heard MANY people reporting that around day 3 they hit the wall of most physical discomfort (from reading multiple post, that is the most common number I see come up again and again although there is variation). I don't have personal experience. I have considered doing a 5 or 10 juice fast and still have it as a back burner option, but things are going so well on a juice and food reboot I see no real reason to change my game plan at the moment. I will be interested in hearing how this goes for you. I'm a bit worried for the timing as Monday would be day 3 for you when you are going back to work- but so many people do it just fine with taxing jobs so perhaps it won't be a big deal. You don't know unless you try. Cooking for others is HARD. I don't have that challenge- being single and no human family has its blessings.
I keep reading that people are having trouble making green juice because it takes a very high end juicer to truly get enough juice out of things like kale and other leafy greens, so some put it in the blender. I assume this is what you meant about trying the blender. I'm going to find you a link...about something called a jelly strainer that may help. hold on....
I never ended up trying this and it seems like a very inefficient way to attempt to simulate juicing on a large scale BUT it does seem like it would solve the problem of extracting pulp from kale juice rendered in a blender and may get you more juice than your juicer is giving you....may be worth a try. I just steam and eat my kale so I never ended up trying it.
Good luck Diane, stay strong. And thank you for posting here. I'm actually sad that more people are not making an effort to post here. I think its a VERY important group. This group could change and save lives long term. This is the real game changer more than initial weight loss-this is where our lasting life changes will come from. And there are for fee options such as Dr. Fuhrman's boards where the majority of strong people in this arena end up investing their time. That leaves nothing on the free resources like this one. So posting and sharing here matters very much in my opinion. I hope people will invest what they can and try to make it a vibrant group!
PS- oh yes, by all means post your phone number. It could be quite entertaining and also a great sociology experiment to see what kinds of diverse phone calls you get ;) -so kidding!!!
I ADMIT IT- I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT A LEGUME IS!!!
I've heard the word over and over again through the course of my life. It has conjured up images of beans and dark leafy greens in my mind and that's about it. I've never fully grasped what the definition of a legume is and I'm no dummy. My excuse is that I'm American- I was raised in a country where some people count ketchup as a vegetable serving (a good excuse, right? I'm sticking with it ;)
So this morning I began googling. Much to my relief I stumbled across blog postings with titles such as "What the He** is a Legume?" all over the place :) I knew I wasn't the only one wondering! I feel better!
So I will share what I learned because legumes are a very important part of the whole foods plant based diet as a plant protein source. If we are going to be eating almost all vegetables for the rest of our lives to stay disease free as well as looking young and fresh as a daisy, then we better know how to get our protein!
From wikipedia: Many legumes (alfalfa, clover, peas, beans, lentils, soybeans, peanuts and others) contain symbiotic bacteria called Rhizobia within root nodules of their root systems. (Plants belonging to the genus Styphnolobium are one exception to this rule.) These bacteria have the special ability of fixing nitrogen from atmospheric, molecular nitrogen (N2) into ammonia (NH3). This arrangement means that the root nodules are sources of nitrogen for legumes, making them relatively rich in plant proteins. All proteins contain nitrogenous amino acids. Nitrogen is therefore a necessaryingredient in the production of proteins. Hence, legumes are among the best sources of plant protein.
For the non-science geeks, the simplified version is that legumes are a plant category that has a special system (which includes using bacteria that live along with the plants) to manufacture heavy amounts of protein as the plant grows.
There is an exhaustive complete list of legumes here on wikipedia:
but I'll just give the link because that list contains all kinds of bizarre stuff and instead post some lists of legumes that are relevant for a healthy whole foods plant based diet.
From Joel Fuhrman, MD's Eat to Live: (web page source: http://www.chewfo.com/diets/eat-to-live-by-joel-f... )
Beans – adzuki beans, black beans, cannellini beans, edamame (my note:fancy name for whole young soybeans served steamed in pod, can often get in japanese foods stores), great northern beans, kidney beans, lima beans, pinto beans, soybeans, white beans
Peas – black-eyed peas, cowpeas, pigeon peas, split peas
Soy and fermented soy products – soybeans, miso, tempeh, tofu
Bean sprouts (note also listed as a non-green vegetable)
If you choose to use canned beans/legumes instead of cooking your own dried beans/legumes, make sure you select products that are labeled as “low-sodium” or “no-salt-added.’ Since beans are not an acidic food, there is less concern with BPA (Bisphenol A) from the can lining leaching into the food (my note, Dr. Fuhrman keeps up on the BPA content of foods as well as pesticide content of foods- I think that’s very cool!)
Goal: at least 1 cup daily. Eat some beans every lunch
I came across a very similar list from the Forks and Knives Plan book, the work of the two amazing MD’s from that movie (remember the doctors who actually would teach their patients how to shop- I LOVE them- Alone Pulde, MD and Matthew Lederman, MD): (web page source: http://www.chewfo.com/diets/forks-over-knives-veg... )
Beans, e.g. adzuki beans, anasazi beans, black beans, cannellini beans, fava beans, great northern beans, kidney beans, lima beans, mung beans, navy beans, pinto beans, white beans
Lentils, e.g. green lentils, red lentils
Dried peas, e.g. black-eyed peas
The recommendations for how much legumes you should eat each day vary according to the source and your needs (weight loss versus weight maintenance, man or woman, slight or big, active or docile, etc). I will share more about this as I read and learn myself. The nice thing about some of the whole foods plant based diet plans is that they seem to make things simple, focusing on no limits of the good stuff-being able to eat as much as you want of good plant foods and having a list of secondary plant foods that need to be eaten in moderation. There are plans out there as simple as you would like or as complex as you would like- whatever you need!
Hopefully after seeing these lists, like me you now have a better idea of what a legume is and how to go about getting your protein on the plant based diet plan. For me, living this way will take some adjustments, but the jaw-dropping data that links the majority of diseases in the Western world to meat and dairy products is all the motivation I need. I will never forget the study data shown to me in the films Hungry for Change and Forks Over Knives. I want to stay young and healthy. I do not want to die of unnecessary cancer. And now I know I do not have to –the science proves it is mostly up to me via what I choose to chew and swallow! That is some exciting stuff!
