So here is what I'm thinking:
Breakfast - protein, carb, veggie
Lunch - protein, carb, veggie
Supper - protein, veggie
Protein - 80-100 grams total
Carbs - low to moderate amount
Fats - 30-40% caloric intake
Calories - ? - not going to focus on
Veggies - lots!
Fruits - ?
Some aspects of the way I've been eating that I'm keeping:
No drinks 1/2 hour before or 1 hour after I eat
Nothing to eat after 8pm (if really hungry, fruit only)
No milk (other dairy okay)
Salad/raw veggies everyday
Minimal processed foods
Sunday free day
Avoid MSG as much as possible (including modified food starches, hydrolyzed proteins, autolyzed yeast extract)
Whole foods as much as possible
Liver/gallbladder flush twice a year
I'm looking forward to seeing how my body does with this way of eating. It definitely gives me more options. I thought about trying to go low carb but my body feels better when I eat some carbs, but not a lot of them. And always with protein.
I'm eager to try ice cream made with almond milk! And bringing back some of our old meals on a regular basis!
I'll probably need to tweak things as I go but this at least gives me a starting point and we'll see where I go from here...
