I got to tell you – not easy! I’ve come to the conclusion that Japanese cooking is the way to go. It is nearly impossible to gain an ounce on this type of cuisines. I happen to skip a meal because I was busy and the next day I had lost 2 pds. The amount of food that you have to eat is incredible compared to what I ate. I did cook it all myself because who could eat out 7 days a week, 3 meals plus snacks.
A typical day in the pass 3 weeks has been:
1 cup of coffee
1 boiled egg
hand full of almonds
7 rice crackers
1 peach ( there in season)
8 0z of goats milk
1 cup of watermelon ( there in season)
2 cups of lettuce
1 can of tuna
1/2 cup of soybeans
1/4 cup of olives
That is my salad with olive oil with salt and pepper
2 Clementine oranges
8 0z beef teryical
1/2 cup of rice
2 cups of bok choy and mushrooms
8oz of juice ( and I had to have 5 pieces of chocolate covered almond)
Water intake for the day 2 liters
45 minutes of exercise 5 days a week
By the time 2 to 3 hours passed I was hungry again. I could not believe the amount of food I was eating plus how hungry I became. I didn’t miss a meal or a snack at anytime except one day. My skin is clear and my hair and nails are growing like crazy. I feel better no doubt about it. You definitely have more energy and I could tell because I didn’t drink the coffee like I usually do.
I know there are tons of gluten free recipes out there but cooking Japanese was just easier to follow. I love my wok by the way. I’m definity going to try some of the bake goods that out there but when I made the pancakes they weren’t that great in gluten free. With the amount of fruit that you eat, you really don’t get the sweet tooth craving as much. Your grocery bill is definitely double but you don’t eat out so it balances out.
The funny thing is my sister is trying this and has lost 10 pounds! Yippie! I’d like to meantion that my mom drinks the 80z of goats milk, which helps with the digestion, and say her stomach has been fine. She has IBS so go figure this been an experience so far and afters seeing the doctor I can tell I have improved my health. My only question to the doctor was, “Can I at least have a croissant with butter once a week?”
So I’m off for my search of the perfect bite and it might just be gluten free!
