    Default My god diet

    Breakfast:
    Bowl of frosted mini-wheats with skim milk
    ~10 ounce glass of orange juice
    ~16 ounce protein shake in skim milk
    Supplements: 81 mg aspirin, multivitamin, fish oil pill, 2 ginkgo biloba pills
    Notes: Frosted mini-wheats is just the flavor of the month. Could switch any time to something equally healthy but still tasty, like special K or Kashi.

    Lunch:
    Plate of spaghetti with meat sauce (100% whole wheat spaghetti)
    Apple sauce
    Peanuts
    Carrots
    ~16 ounces of skim milk
    Notes: the apple sauce is granny smith and "healthy harvest" with no sugar added. The meat sauce is currently ground beef, which I of course drain the grease from, but I may switch to ground turkey. I can prepare this VERY efficiently. I cook 4 days' worth of spaghetti at a time.

    Snack:
    Bowl of ice cream
    ~8 ounce glass of v8 juice
    Piece of whole wheat bread
    Notes: the ice cream is necessary for me to stay happy. Gotta have something nice and sweet each day. I eat cherry cordial and I pour about 5 ounces of sprite in the bowl with it. YUM.

    Dinner:
    Broccoli, blanched
    Baked potato, small amount of cheese and butter added
    Baked chicken breast
    ~16 ounce glass of skim milk
    ~16 ounce glass of blended juices: orange, grapefruit, and cranberry, with a squirt of lemon juice
    Supplements: fish oil pill, 2 ginkgo biloba pills, vitamin C and/or vitamin E pill sporadically, along with iron, calcium-magnesium-zinc supplement less frequently.
    Notes: I can prepare this pretty fast too. Making 3 or 4 days' worth at once of both the chicken and the baked potato helps. I spoon the inside of the potato out into a bowl and then cover it with foil in the fridge - tastes good as new. I can season the chicken if I please. I'll add black pepper usually.

    Overall comments:

    Yes, I eat the same thing every day. That's what works about this diet. I enjoy it, and it is efficient as hell. And I figure, I'm getting several servings a day of meats and proteins, dairy, grains, fruits, and vegetables. All bases are covered. I eased my way into this diet naturally through a process of dietary natural selection, and have been on it for a month or so. One weekend I deviated from it by eating out at greasy-fat places a couple times, and had definite bowel problems the next day or two because of the shock.

    This is much, much better than my old habits. One thing I like about it is not having to think. I know what I'm eating every day, and I don't have to wonder if I am covering this or that food group, or get overwhelmed and just snack and/or eat out and buy pre-prepared meals like TV dinners. This diet seems to be the perfect mix for me of ease and satisfaction. I'm really looking forward to seeing if I notice any benefits from it in the short term. I'm pretty sure long term benefits will be there, and even if they aren't, I still enjoy this diet more than anything I would do otherwise. I am not particularly enthusiastic about eating, so this somewhat minimalistic diet is kind of perfect for me.

    I was shunned away from INTPc, they hate me there. Figured I'd give this place a try.

    I have read that eating the same types of things over and over can make for an effective diet control. Takes the thought process out, which can make things tedious. Interesting.
