Well, I am starting slow with this plan ... Eating fruit (not pineapple) up to 10 am. So far this is my routine:
6:00 am = fresh squeeze lemon juice first drink in the morning. Sometime straight, sometimes with a bit of warm water
7:00am - Then I prepare a fruit juice with apple and some other fruits. Today was 2 apples, 1 kiwi, a small piece of fresh ginger from the garden, about 4 big strawberries. That gave us about two glasses, one of hubby and one for me. Since that was to be my only breakfast, I ate the fruit pulp with a spoon afterwards.
At about 9:00am I had a treadmill walk for about 1 hour at about 4.5km/h pace (with 5 minutes either side a lot slower during warm up and cool down).
10:00am - Rice cakes with peanut butter. Super benes for me and making sure I get my protein intake straight after the exercise. I was not hungry at all from breakfast and I could have continue eating fruit till lunch, but I love my coffee and peanut butter in the morning and see no need to stop that yet.
Lunch time was at about 1:00pm, consiting of some steam veggies, some raw veggies and some protein. Cauliflower and Broccoli formed the main part of the salad, both steamed and raw. I sprinkle them with some grated carrot, finely chopped red bell pepper, grated ginger. chopped coriander (the herb), some chopped red onion, a little piece of beetroot and chopped celery leaves. The protein was grilled fish for me, just less than the palm of my hand size. I dressed the salad with a bit of olive oil, flaxseed oil and lemon juice. Just prior to eating it we had a freshly made juice of : cilantro (including the little roots), read onion, raw broccoli, celery stick, some beetroot and a carrot. Had enough to have a cup for each of us and then more (which I am using in my rice dish for dinner, together with the byproduct veggie pulp).
It is now nearly 6:00pm and although I have not eating anything since 1:30pm when we finished lunch, I am not hungry at all. But, I am committed to eating dinner not latter than 7:00pm, so I will do that soon.
Dinner time is my carbohydrate and veggies time, the confort food of rice or bread. BRown rice on the menu tonight with all that leftover veggie pulp and more from lunch! Again, the veggies are taken the real estate in my plate, leaving just a bit of room for my grains ... about the size of the palm of my hand. .... Sounds familiar? it is what was always written in my Swami but I never quite saw it this way ...
Feeling great so far, very satisfied and motivated ...
Off to prepare and have dinner ....
