Tofurky, My Behind.

Ya know what? I'm NOT going back to that nutritionist. The more I read about veganism, the more I learn she is wrong. I am NOT supposed to be eating soy every day. Tofurky is NOT a healthy replacement meal. And I've been eating MORE since I've gone to her because she says it's not enough to just snack on fruit, so I have to add nuts and a starch to that "snack" as well. It's no mystery why I'm not losing weight!

More veggies, more fruit, and I'll find my protein from beans and nuts. ENOUGH with the Tofurky.

Taking my will back,

Starting Over

Well, last night I really went for it... I isolated, ate a pint of soy ice cream, a veggie burger with fries, and way too many pretzels. I passed out at 8:30 - probably from an emotional hangover.

Today, it's my task to let go of last night. To reassure myself that others DO lose weight so it CAN happen for me. I'm letting go of yesterday and starting over today.

No weight loss :( 3 weeks of healthier eating with no weight loss.

I went back to the nutritionist. She said I need to incorporate more vegetables but for the most part I'm doing well. What irks me is that on top of eating well and doing well, I have been to the gym almost every single day and worked out HARD for the past 3 weeks. And no weight loss?

Tonight would be one of those great, reclusive Fridays ... Cuddled in bed with a side of fries and a pint of ice cream. Can't say I'm not considering skipping the gym for the aforementioned Plan B.

Bummed and Big-butted,

My New Fave

Delicious! Not too hot, a little bit sweet, and just perfect over dry brown rice!

Piggy's Visit to the Nutritionist

WOW. No WONDER I am always hungry. Apparently stocking up on vegetables and carbs isn't worthwhile if you're not getting the protein and healthy fat needed to hold onto the nutrients.

See the pic of the "Healthy Plate" I posted. Since Friday, I've had to make sure my plate looks like this at each meal.

1/2 full with vegetables, 1/4 full with starches, 1/4 full with protein (hard to get when you're a vegan), and there should be healthy fat somewhere on the plate (olive oil on the veggies, nuts, etc).

Try it with me?
