Quoted from BluesSinger
Ha ha.. have to laugh because this morning I've decided that I'm not going to limit my ghee!!  ha ha.... 1 tsp a week is just not going to cut it!!!!    

I agree that cutting avoids is far more important than worrying about portion size / frequency, especially in the beginning.  You want to work on meal plans and recipes using all beneficial and neutral (if you eat those) foods...  Once you have a pretty good routine down and you're starting to get healthy, then start looking at the fine-tuning...

I agree with ABJoe.  When I got serious with my Swami plan I just concentrated on eating my Beneficials.  Didn't pay much attention to portions/amounts.  As I got feeling better I was able to slowly widdle down my portions till I was eating my recommended amounts and frequencies.

My day as I worked to climb back out of Junk food:

Before breakfast:
Two cups of tea with plain organic soy/almond milk and stevia
1 glass of water with ARA6 and 3 tbl concentrated cherry/cranberry juice

Breakfast
2 eggs
1 small sweet potato
Steamed Broccoli with Ghee
1 small piece of Teff toast with Ghee and apple juice sweetened jelly
Vitamins and minerals

Mid Morning
1 cut of tea with plain organic soy/almond milk and stevia

Lunch
Organic chicken lunch meat slices with mozzarella cheese, minced onions, mayo and lettuce
Fresh pineapple chunks
Stevia grape soda cut with water

Afternoon  - My blood sugar was way down and I was suffering so I found myself eating these things.  it did feel like a binge type activity - esp with the TWO bananas but it cured my physical suffering and I remember reading Dr. D saying to eat fruit as you are coming out of blood sugar issues or something like that!
Two bananas, 1/2 cup almonds, Stevia grape soda cut with water

Late Afternoon
1 cut of tea with plain organic soy/almond milk and stevia

Dinner
Stir fried asparagus in Rice Bran Oil with Fresh Rosemary
Crock pot cooked Turkey with natural juices
1/2 cup grape juice cut with soda water
Vitamins and minerals

I feel very full and satisfied.  
I listened to a 78 year old OA online speaker with 28 years of recovery.  She was originally 350 lbs.  She had some wonderful things to say.

Looks like you did really well today!

You might want to plan on an afternoon snack at the time you felt the  blood sugar crash, or maybe a little bit earlier so you don't feel "bingey" at that time.

Day Two as I rise from the hellaceous pit of compulsive junk eating:

Early Morning
2 cups of tea with organic unsweetened soy/almond milk and stevia
1 glass of water with fiber and 3 tbl concentrated cherry/cranberry juice

Breakfast
Green Juice Protein Shake made with the following:
Juiced Kale, Dandelion Greens, Ginger, Celery; Watermelon, Banana, Pea/Rice Protein Powder, Ground Flax Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Almond/Soy Milk, Water, Ice Cubes, Stevia.
Vitamins and minerals

Mid Morning
1 cut of tea with organic unsweetened soy/almond milk and stevia

Lunch
Salmon Filet, Green Beans cooked with Ghee - with a dipping sauce of made
of mayo, Garlic Salad dressing and Agave Syrup
1/2 Small Watermelon
1 tbl applejuice sweetened pineapple mango jam
Stevia grape soda cut with water

Early Afternoon
1 cut of tea with organic unsweetened soy/almond milk and stevia

Late Afternoon
Handful of dried mango's.  We were out running around doing errands and got hungry.  Actual hunger!

Dinner
Stir fried asparagus in Rice Bran Oil with Fresh Rosemary
Crock pot cooked Turkey with natural juices
1/2 Very Small Sweet Potato with Ghee
Banana
1/2 cup grape juice cut with soda water
Vitamins and minerals


Today I was not hungry except when meal time came.  That was very good!  But I am aching all over and fatigued.  I'm sure this is a repercussion of the bad eating.   All day long I kept thinking "when we are out, I'll just get hubby to take me to mexican food for dinner and I'll just have an abstinent meal."   I'm so glad I lost interest in that since corn and tomatoes cause me to hurt all over, plus I'm sure there is sugar in the sauces.

way to go BlueSinger!

I am doing ok - have had a few minor slip ups - a cup of tea with cream and some pork after we ran out of food and my DH cooked up whatever was in the freezer - left over from before.  I have noticed though that I felt bad after the pork - couldn't put my finger on it but just felt a bit 'off'.  I am really digging my diamonds - ginger tea seems to have a big effect on me - makes me feel very warm and energized.  I also eat tons of broccoli and fried hake.  I even managed to get hold of some pomegranates which are also diamonds for me.  I dropped a bit of weight too despite my slip ups.  I have maintained the past week but am hoping for more soon....I have backed off the diamond cheese though - I had a tough lesson of tennis the day after eating a lot of it - I am intolerant to casein and that is the first thing that goes - my tenis performance.  I guess that is just where I am more individual than just being Swami explorer - a personal intolerance.  I am so WARM eating this way too.  No more cold hands and feet.

I am also supplementing with iron and other minerals right now - I have found that my period pains go away when I supplement iron.  A typical explorer trait being low in iron too i think?

well dropped a bit more weight.  I ate a lot of butter yesterday which is a black dot but doesn't seem to disagree with me - I try to have more olive oil which is a diamond but sometimes I really like something a bit heavier.  I will make some ghee which is a superfood.  I seem to crave a lot of fat and always have so I am not restricting it if I want it.  Lentils are agreeing with me as well.  I need a moderate amount of carbs to feel well and be able to exercise (well actually to WANT to exercise I need to eat a lot of calories full stop)  - low carb makes me feel awful even with lots of fat - and high carb makes me crazy.  If I mix a decent amount of carbs with lots of fat I am really full of energy and don't seem to gain!  As long as they are compliant carbs of course.  I hope this is the answer for me - I do feel very well on the recommended foods - apart from the cheese.
